New Ways to Sell Your Stuff Online
Selling your gently-used children's clothing is often a chore. Selling on eBay or Craigslist or at local consignment shops can be a lot of hassle for little reward.
There are far easier, faster options to earn some cash while cleaning out the kids' closets. Many online children's clothing companies are eager to resell your items, and they pay you upfront as opposed to waiting until your items sell as with consignment shops. With these companies, all you need to do is request a pre-paid postage bag from the online store, fill the bag, leave it for your mail carrier or drop it off at the post office, and earn your choice of cash or store credit within weeks instead of months.
These companies only accept new or like-new clothing with no signs of wear. When they say "like new," they mean it! They will not accept items with pilling, tears, fading, stretching, shrinkage, pet hair, odors, missing buttons, broken zippers, stains, or fraying. Items for consideration must be fashionably current as well. Though the brands rejected vary from site to site, Walmart-type brands like Garanimals, Gerber, or Faded Glory are universally not accepted due to their poor resale value. Better brand name clothing in excellent condition does well, and those outgrown items with the price tags still attached will fetch even more money. All items, whether new-with-tags or like-new, must have an intact tag on the garment that clearly identifies the brand name and size.
Not only are these great places to sell your unwanted children's clothing, but they're also great places to pick up quality pieces at a fraction of their retail prices. Turning those unwanted articles into cash or finding great deals on terrific like-new clothing has never been easier.
If you're looking to turn your unwanted children's clothing into cash, here are two online stores that may be happy to purchase your gently used children's clothing:
ThredUP not only buys and sells children's clothing sizes 12 months and up, but it also buys and sells women's clothing (including plus sizes), maternity wear, shoes, and handbags. Rejected items are donated to charity or you may choose to have them returned to you for a $12.99 shipping fee. Items earn store credit or cash through PayPal.
