I love selling used clothes and other items. Currently, I use ebay and craigslist and a few local FB swap sites on a regular basis. When I discovered you could just pack up and send clothes to ThredUp–I had to give it a try! you can read my previous post about buying on ThredUp here.
ThredUp sent me a HUGE bag with postage on it. Since I wasn’t sure what the payout would be I chose to send just a few items in. After I sent the bag-it took a few days for it to be received and then a few weeks to be processed. When I received the e-mail with my payout–I was disappointed, to say the least! I sent in 6 items (toddler/baby boy) in excellent condition. My payout- $3.65. They total ThredUp would receive for my items–$36.50. You receive 10% of the sales. Long story short–for the minimal payout–I would have rather donated!
There is a local kids consignment shop near me that will “buy” toddler/baby clothes. I have had moderate luck with them – but definitely better than ThredUp. Although selling on ebay is more work (taking pictures, creating the listing and packing/shipping) they payout is significantly higher and may well be worth it!
