One of the easiest ways to start making money online is to sell clothes on eBay. You can sell both brand new clothing as well as used clothing.
If you’re selling brand new clothing, you will need to find a supplier for the clothing that is cheaper than the retail price. You will need to do your research and find out the typical online prices for the particular type of clothing you want to sell.
So, for example, if you want to sell brand name t-shirts, then you need to check the current price on Ebay, Amazon and other online marketplaces. Then, you will have to find a source where you can purchase it much cheaper so that when you list it for sale on eBay and it gets sold, you’ll make a profit.
On the other hand, if you want to sell used clothing, you will need to sort through the clothes that you have and select the pieces that are in good to excellent condition.
You should also do some research on the used clothing prices for those particular pieces. This will give you an idea on how to price them so that they can be quickly sold.
For example, if you have a particular shirt that is currently being sold on Ebay for $50 brand new and $35 used, then a good price point to list your used shirt would be between $30 – $34.
Now, the most important part of selling clothes on eBay is your listing and what you write. It is extremely important that you include the measurements of the clothing so that potential buyers can know exactly whether it would fit them or not.
This will reduce the number of returns you get, which will improve your overall profit margins. Be sure to include measurements such as the chest, waist, sleeve length, pants length, hips etc.
Another great tip is to properly display your clothes. You should start by washing or dry cleaning the clothes you intend to sell and then ironing or steaming them so they are wrinkle free.
Then, you will need to display them and take pictures. How you display your clothes matter quite a lot and clothes that are displayed on a mannequin tend to sell much faster than those that aren’t.
This is because the mannequin helps people to see and visualize how the piece of clothing would look on them and how it is supposed to fit. Thankfully, mannequins are not very expensive and you can easily purchase one for $20 or so on Ebay.
Lastly, you should be as descriptive as possible in the listing. This means that you should include the brand of the clothes, size, type of material it is made up of, color, its condition, washing instructions etc. The more detailed you are, the higher your chances of getting the item sold.
In closing, we have just looked at a couple of guidelines for selling clothes on eBay. This is definitely a great way to start selling online and it is a model that is highly profitable.
