Where to sell your clothes online
It’s always good to clean out your wardrobe and get rid of unwanted pieces. We understand that it's not always easy to donate and get rid of clothes especially when you spent a good amount of money buying. However, when you earn some cash in return, you'll feel good while doing good for the environment and for yourself. So why not give it a try?
With the rise of many new sustainable initiatives, selling your clothes and contributing to sustainable fashion is easier than ever. We have prepared a list of some online websites where you can sell your clothes (or buy second-hand).
1- Vestiaire Collective
After accepting your items, Vestiaire Collective takes up to 35% commission for the concierge service, depending on what you or the company take care of (pickup, shipping, etc). The luxury company, Keiring, owns 5% of the brand which makes this website more trustworthy than others.

Depop might be the easiest way of selling your clothes. The app works just like Instagram. All you have to do is upload a picture of the item you're selling, add a description with specific information about the condition, price, and whatever information you want to add. Vintage clothing and unique collaboration tend to be the most popular, but you call sell anything from clothing to home decoration and more. Note that Depop charges 10% of every sale you do.

Farfetch collaborated with Thrift+ where they will send you a bag to fill in your unwanted clothes and in return, you will get store credit at Farftech. The process is very easy, you just need to fill the form with your address and the company will send you the packaging. All you have to do is mail it to their address and wait for your credits.

eBay might not be where most young people would find vintage and cool products, but the real fashionistas and millennials know that this is where you'll find the rarest products for the best prices. On eBay, not only you can sell anything but you can also either decide on a fixed price, or you can also set up an auction. Note that eBay also charges 10% of every sale you do.

5- The RealReal
This is the ideal website if you want to sell your most luxurious clothing and accessories. They not only authenticate all items but it's the most known in this sector, which means your pieces can be sold faster. It's very trustworthy for sellers and buyers. However, the pricing and publication of your items are out of your control, and the company needs to accept your products first. Once accepted, you can arrange how you would like to send your products, or request a home pickup. Note that for TheRealReal, the commission is different, it's based on a sliding scale, meaning the more you sell, the more you earn.
