Millennial Magazine - reselling clothes online

It doesn’t matter whether you’re planning on selling used or brand-new clothes, we have some great news for you! Namely, reselling clothes online through the website, or any app is actually quite popular.

This just goes to show that you most likely won’t be having any issues selling it. This is generally a great idea. You’ll get the chance to earn some money, and yet, your clothes will not be thrown away but will live their “second life” with someone else.

But of course, just like with many other things, you need to develop a high-quality strategy that will help you sell everything you no longer want. To help you out with that, we put together a list of tips that will enable you to sell everything!

Be Very Detailed Regarding Item Description

In these types of situations, it’s crucial to cover all essential aspects that a potential shopper would love to know within your description. This will help buyers understand what they are purchasing and will leave no (or little) room for any redundant questions. So what must be part of your item description?

  • A concise, yet detailed description within no more than 150 words
  • Size and/or measurements
  • Name of the brand
  • The fabrics that have been used
  • Condition
  • Any additional details of the item, like meshing or embroidery
  • Don’t forget hashtags to help you attract more people

Pictures Are Worth A Thousand Words

This is an old saying that definitely makes a good point. So just put yourself in the buyers’ shoes and ask yourself: Would you rather purchase an item with a couple of pictures, or would you be more attracted to the one that has just one image?

A majority of people would choose the first option. That’s precisely why you have to give all you’ve got to make some high-quality pictures. Now, if you do not have a knack for photography, don’t worry, there are people who do.

Now is the perfect time to hire professional photographers to help you with it. For the time being, the ghost mannequin photography effect is for sure the most popular one. But what does it represent?

Namely, it enables you to take more than one picture of your product on either a mannequin or model and then combine these images to get rid of the mannequin or model during the post-production processing.

Those who have a plethora of experience with selling their clothes online, claim that this is one of the best things that you can do when it comes to presenting your pieces of clothing the right way.

Whatever method you chose, just make sure that you take at least one picture of the back, front, and close-up, and don’t forget to showcase any flaws that your product has.

Be Real And Honest

Even though everyone will know that you’ll be selling old clothes, it still doesn’t mean that you should hide any major details. Of course, first and foremost, accentuate the biggest traits of the items you’re selling and be enthusiastic about them.

But on the other hand, you have to be honest as well! Bear in mind, that a lot of people do not have any problems with used, imperfect clothes, as long as it’s in solid condition, and of course, if the price isn’t too high.

What they will never forget is someone being dishonest, which is why you mustn’t leave anything out. This way, you’ll be able to build your reputation and gain a lot of new consumers.

Focus On Trends

Paying attention to the trends is particularly essential when you’re trying to sell older clothes on the internet. Why is that? Well, that’s because (this refers to the clothes that are pretty old) trends are frequently coming back around.

Be Fast And Friendly

You probably already know that nobody likes to wait for a response for too long, which is why you have to reply to messages as quickly as possible. Be sure to reply to consumers within a day. And also, do not forget to always have a friendly tone with them as well!

Pick The Right Time

There’s no point in selling, for instance, a bikini if you’re selling in the middle of winter. Be sure that you sell your clothes at the right time so you can get the most out of them.

In most cases, selling your clothes on the internet can be quite successful, but it still doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t make any efforts during this process. That’s precisely why we compiled these tips so that everything goes according to your plan.
