As much as I love selling things online, there are downsides to it too. In April of this year, I attended Poshmark’s PoshNation tour in San Francisco, where I met several other women who buy and sell on Poshmark. Of the four women I spoke to in depth at the event, two of them asked me about how to deal with scammers and receiving items not as described. Because they were newer buyers and sellers who brought these questions up on their own, I think it’s a legitimate concern and must be on more people’s minds.
Besides blogging, one of my favorite hobbies is to sell things online. A few months ago, I posted 5 Tips to Sell Clothes Online. If you haven’t read the post yet, check it out because the tips are foundational to success on Poshmark and on any other online marketplace. Since then, I’ve had several more tips on my mind and want to share them here today.
Buying and selling goods online can be an exciting and profitable experience. I remember being a newbie on the used clothing app Poshmark down to the day I downloaded the app and fiddled around to post my first listings. The notifications soon started about being followed and my listings shared. I had no idea what that meant!
This is a follow-up post to the ultimate guide to thrift shopping. While out thrift shopping, you’ll likely locate some great pieces. Some of these you may keep for yourself and others you might find are not to your liking or style but still hold value. One easy way to take advantage of the second group of finds is to resell these items for profit. Here are four places online to sell items and my take on each based on my experience using them.
About a year and a half ago, I started thrift shopping on a whim. After I tried to organize a clothing swap that didn’t happen, I started donating clothes to my local thrift store and selling items I found there online. Little did I know when I started thrift shopping that it would become one of my favorite hobbies of all time. It’s helped me to build a better wardrobe, have a creative outlet, and even earn a little money on the side. If any of these benefits speak to you and you want to try thrift shopping for yourself, here’s a guide to help you get started.
