Even though it may not feel it, but it is spring and that means it is time for some good ol’ spring cleaning! This is a great time to clean out the clutter in our house because we can’t use the excuse of not being home enough. 

Also, with spring cleaning, comes new wardrobes…clear up your closet to make room for some new spring/summer plus size fashion pieces! How does a little plus size consignment or resell sound like, to you?

The easiest way to get paid from the following websites will most likely be on PayPal, so we recommend creating an account for that now so you are all ready to go! 

Plus Size Resell or Consignment: Where to sell or donate your plus size clothes 

Poshmark

Poshmark is one of the most popular re-selling websites – and for good reason! Poshmark is like a fashionable, younger Ebay.  You can easily post photos of your clothing from your home and once an item is sold you ship directly to the customer, no middle man! 

Poshmark Commission Fees: “For all sales under $15, Poshmark takes a flat commission of $2.95. You keep the rest. For sales of $15 or more, you keep 80% of your sale and Poshmark’s commission is 20%.”

Steps to Sell:

  1. Create an Account
  2. Create a listing for an item
    • Take photos 
    • Determine a price 
  3. When someone buys, Poshmark will send you a pre-paid shipping label
  4. Either drop it off at your post office, Fedex, UPS, or let the mailman pick it up! 
  5. Poshmark will pay you directly via Paypal

Depop

Similar to Poshmark, Depop allows you to create your own listings and sell at your convenience.  Depop operates more from their app, so if you are wanting to sell you will have to do it off of that. 

Depop Commission Fees: Depop automatically charges a 10% commission fee on all sales. 

Steps to Sell:

  1. Create an account
  2. Create a listing for an item
    • Take photos 
    • Determine a price 
    • Determine shipping method
  3. When someone buys, you ship it off
  4. Depop will pay you and take its commission

Mercari

Mercari allows you to sell your items, ranging from clothing to fit bits and everything in between, on its app or website. 

Mercari Commission Fees: Mercari automatically takes 10% per listing. 

Steps to Sell:

  1. Create an account
  2. Create a listing for your items 
  3. Ship it off 
  4. Get paid by Mercari!

Facebook Marketplace

Think, Craigslist, but with a face lift. Facebook Marketplace is already integrated into your Facebook and it is the site for you if you can’t be fussed to ship out your items, or if you want to sell larger items other than clothes. 

Facebook Marketplace connects users in the same cities to help sell directly.  With social distancing times, it may be harder to pick-up or drop-off items. 

Facebook Marketplace Commission Fees: None

Steps to Sell:

  1. Go to Marketplace on your Facebook
  2. Create a listing for your item
  3. That’s it! 

ThredUp

This one may be the most convenient way to sell your clothes.  No need to stress about taking pictures, picking prices or the most annoying of it all: actually shipping it out.

We would recommend this one if you are looking to get rid of a lot of clothes, but not doing it to solely make money. 

ThredUp’s commission is one of the highest, so if you have the patience to sell yourself and want to make money, ThredUp wouldn’t be your first choice. 

ThredUp’s Commission Fees:

Steps to Sell

  1. Create a ThredUp Account
  2. Order a Clean Out Kit
    • Fill it up with all your goods you wish to sell
  3. Send it Off
    • Leave it for your mail carrier or drop it at FedEx or USPS
  4. Get cash or credit!

Blogger House Curvy Closet

 

“A few sales later, Darlene’s blogger bestie and housemate Sandra Negron joined in, selling her own clothing. It was then that the Blogger House Curvy Closet was born.

The power duo started having sales via Facebook Live once a month, which they also noticed had become a space that inspired women to get out of their comfort zone, trying new styles without breaking the bank. Their customers were interacting with them on a personal level, sharing their OOTDs and it became more than just selling clothing. It became a community.

Darlene and Sandra started referring to their customers as the BHCC squad and later created a private Facebook group to offer private flash sales and have a safe, non-judgmental place for the squad to share their outfit images and interact with each other.”

This group hosts FB lives to sell various plus size fashion options, all worn or owned by some of your favorite plus size influencers.
