As a parent, selling my family’s used clothes is a smart way to earn extra cash and get rid of the clutter, so I wanted to share with our readers my favorite places to sell used clothing online. Here’s a list of five reputable sites you can use:
1 – eBay
Everyone knows you can sell your used clothing on eBay.
I added it to this list because I felt like it could be a nice reminder to those who are looking to refresh their memory. There’s a small fee for listing on eBay, but many have found this a viable way to make money off of used clothing.
2 – ThredUp
Back in the day I used to use this website for swapping kid’s clothing and it was a very interesting concept.
Now you can sell your kid’s clothing there to make some extra cash. ThredUp claims to pay you real money for the clothes you send them. With this company, I’d recommend taking pictures and making several notes about the condition your clothing was in prior to sending it.
3 – LikeTwice.com
Like Twice looks like a fairly easy way to earn extra cash for your clothing. You need to request a free selling kit, print a free shipping label, and you’ll be on your way.
Please note that Like Twice has a reputation for being incredibly picky and only accepting the best brands. In fact, they don’t accept clothing from Walmart.
4 – Tradesy.com
Selling your clothing is also possible thanks to a website known as Tradesy. With this website they claim to make selling “painless” for the consumer.
They do take nine percent of your earnings, but you get to keep the rest. Cashing out is done via Paypal. I’d love to know if anyone has used this site for selling used clothing before.
5 – The Real Real
First of all, you have to love the name of this website, it’s very catchy. If you have art, home goods, and luxury clothing, you can sell it all to The Real Real.
Note that this is a consignment shop, so the way things work are a little different than normal. You earn 70 percent of the selling price there, and they claim that most items do sell within three days of being listed.
I do not have experience in selling with all of these sites. However, they all have great reputations. Just like any business out there, you should do the research for yourself to make sure you would want to do business with any of the above companies.
I’d love to personally hear your experiences with any of these companies if you have it. I think being able to sell your used clothing, when you’re ready, is an excellent way to earn extra money from home.

BONUS – Want to Sell a Digital Item Instead That Requires No Shipping?
If you are interested in online sales but the idea of heading to the post office to ship out products feels like a massive and time-consuming pain, you may want to consider selling digital products instead.
There are lots of digital products you can sell and you may be thinking e-books and e-courses. Those are great, but they take a great deal of time to put together.
Digital printables are another idea for you! They can be made quickly, and you don't have to have any graphic design experience. Plus, people snatch them up like crazy on sites like Etsy.
Also, there's never any shipping. The people who purchase them will just get a downloadable file to their email, and you get paid. These digital printables can sell over and over once they are made!
For more info, you can sign up for this FREE online workshop hosted by my friend Julie of Gold City Ventures. She made $10,000 in her first year of selling printables on the side.
