Target Missoni Boots for $30k. Vintage Chanel bags for $1,000. Everywhere you look, someone is trying to making a little side hustle off of their fashion finds on eBay. Of course, these high numbers sound enticing, but more than one person raised their eyebrows at the price tag of those Target Missoni boots.
So, how’s a girl to make a little cash from all that fabulous fashion she no longer wants? Well, here are a few tricks to success when it comes to eBay. First, you have to know your product and research past sales of similar products on eBay so you don’t get your hopes up. Then, take great pictures and be the seller you’ve always wanted to work with yourself. Below are more detailed explanations of our top five tips for selling on eBay. Good luck!
How to Sell Your Clothes on Ebay
1. Only Sell Great Products
Ask yourself, “Would I bid on this if I saw it on eBay?” No one wants your gym shirt from middle school, but they do want that Lilly Pulitzer dress you only wore once. Your product has to be in excellent condition (unless it’s something like a vintage handbag with some wear and tear). Check it thoroughly for stains and tears. If they are small, you could still be able to sell it since many people are adept at repairing such things, but you’ll have to write about it in the description.
2. Give It the Red Carpet Treatment
You wouldn’t walk down the red carpet in a wrinkled dress that you picked up off the floor. And you wouldn’t be inclined to buy such a dress. So make sure your item looks great before taking pictures. Iron it. Wash it. Put it on a hanger. Whatever you have to do to wear it yourself, that’s how it should look in a picture.
