I’ve posted recently about cleaning out my closet. I love decluttering and refreshing my closet because it gives me a visual inventory of what I have and what I wear.
The Best Online Platforms to Sell Your Clothes (and Accessories)
ThredUp – I used to love Thredup when I first heard about them. You order a free clean-out kit from them. Once it arrives, you place your items in a bag and ship it to them. They sell your items on their website and you receive credit or cash.
The only problem with this is that it’s taking them ~8 weeks to process the kits. I have one that I sent in December that won’t be processed until March. The last kit I sent them was only processed on January 6. Those items are still selling. Any money I am making isn’t going to be in my account anytime soon.
Commission Fee: You can receive anywhere from 3-80% depending on the sale price
Poshmark – I love this app for resales. I can take my time to list the products and they give you a pre-paid label to print at your home. Then all you need to do is box the items and drop off at the post office.
I put a lot of time and effort into my account. I take photos of myself wearing the clothes for a reference point and I take photos of the items. I try to find the exact names of the products if I’ve purchased them recently. I only post the item’s measurements if someone asks for them in a comment.
Commission Fee: $2.95 for sales under $15, 20% for sales over

The RealReal – This is a consignment shop for luxury items. It works by sending your item. The RealReal will then authenticate your item to verify it for their shoppers. From there it gets ready for their website with professional photos and copywriting that are built into their pricing model. I haven’t used this service in a many years, but I do remember having items rejected.
Tradesy – Tradesy offers a way to sell your pre-loved pieces. It works similar to Poshmark, in that you take the photos, write the descriptions, and set your prices. You can ship the items with your own shipping supplies – or you can request a kit from them. Once your earnings become available, you can transfer funds to your PayPal, debit card, or checking account — or keep them on Tradesy to buy something new.
Commission Fee: $7.50 if the item is less than $50 and 15.8% commission if the item is sold for than $50
Worthy – Worthy is a platform specifically designed for jewelry resale. Worthy’s gemologists professionally clean and photograph your jewelry. Then we’ll have it graded by objective, third party grading experts. Once you select a reserve price and start your auction you’ll be able to watch it online for 48-72 hour online auction to their network.
Commission Fee: 18% on items up to $5,000
Kidizen – Shop and sell kids’ resale fashion with Kitizen. You have the option to sell the items yourself or connect with a Style Scout, who will sell your items for you.
