  1. Reorganize your closet. The very first step to ensuring that you can declutter your wardrobe and make some money from it is to organize it properly. You need to go through every item of clothing that you have in your closet. If you’ve got things in there that haven’t even been warned, they’ll still have their hang tag and you can keep these to self forward. You need to know what clothes that you can neither sell nor wear, so you’d have to donate clothes that aren’t sellable but are still wearable, and clothes that are wearable and you’d like to keep. Once you have those piles, you can get everything back to where it’s supposed to be and start listing your clothing online.
  2. Make sure your photos are high quality. If you want people to be interested in your clothes and you want them to buy them, then the photos have to be good. You need to have the right consistent lighting and an uncluttered background so that you can make sure that you are selling your clothes properly. People want to find beauty in the images and they’re going to rely on you to get that right. Don’t take pictures of your clothes in a dark room or in the shadows. You want to show those colors so that everybody can see that your clothes are pretty.
  3. Be realistic about what your prices will be. You are never going to get your things for the same cost as brand new. You might get away with it if they have the original hanging tags on them, but even then you may still need to knock off a percentage. If you’re listing any of your clothes as preloved, then you need to take at least a third to half of the price.
  4. Write detailed descriptions. Potential buyers want to know more about the clothes that you’re selling before they make a purchase. This is especially the case if it’s second hand.The most common idea behind providing labels and descriptions for your items is making sure that your descriptions go really well. By properly labeling the basic characteristics of the items, such as the size and measurements and the condition, your items will pop up online in the results much faster.

Now you know how to sell your clothes properly, you can get started.
