  • THERE ARE GROUPS ON FACEBOOK AND ALSO A CATEGORY ON CRAIGSLIST FOR FREE ITEMS!



PREPARING YOUR ITEMS TO RESALE

SO YOU DECIDED TO PURGE! LOOK AT YOU! I SEE YOU SHEDDING A LITTLE BIT OF UNNECESSARY ITEMS AROUND YOU. CLEAR THAT SPACE UP FOR YOUR MENTAL AND SIMPLY FOR MORE SPACE!


1. START OFF BY SORTING WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO BE SELLING. EX: DRESSY TOPS/ CASUAL TOPS/ JEANS/ SHORTS/ SKIRTS/ DRESSES ETC.


2. INVESTIGATE THE PRODUCTS FOR STAINS, HOLES, MISSING BUTTONS, ETC. IF IT'S SOMETHING CAN REPAIR OR CLEAN GET ER' DONE! DON'T SPEND EXTRA FUNDS. BUT BE SURE TO NOTE ANY DAMAGE ON THE ITEM. ALSO CONSIDER THIS IN YOUR PRICING.


3. FOR IN STORE RESALE ITEMS MUST BE IN A BASKET, CLOTHING HAMPER, STURDY BAG TO DROP OFF. I USUALLY KEEP THE ITEMS SORTED... I FIGURED WHOEVER'S WORKING WILL APPRECIATE A LITTLE LESS WORK AND MAY GIVE ME A BIT MORE MONEY TOWARDS MY ITEMS. IT'S A HIGH HOPE THING BUT I'VE STUCK TO IT LOL.


4. RESELLING ONLINE MAKE SURE TO CAPTURE CLEAR WELL LIT IMAGES WITH CLOSE UP DETAIL SHOTS IF NEEDED. MOST PEOPLE APPRECIATE MEASUREMENT DETAILS ONLINE ( IF YOU DO NOT HAVE MUCH FREE TIME TO GETS DETAILS INCLUDED WHEN POSTING, BE OPEN TO ANSWERING QUESTIONS FROM POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS. REPLYING AS FAST YOU CAN TO KEEP THE INTEREST UP!)


TO AVOID HAVING TO ANSWER QUESTIONS INCLUDE EVERY DETAIL YOU CAN THINK OF!

UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THAT NOT EVERYONE ONLINE SHOPS LIKE YOU AND MAY NEED A LITTLE MORE FROM THE SELLERS END.



WHAT TO INCLUDE ON POST

SIZE FITS: (THIS CAN BE THE ACTUAL TAG SIZE OR IF ITS A OPTIONAL FIT INCLUDE THE SIZE RANGE)

MEASUREMENTS: ARM LENGTH/ CHEST ETC

COLOR:

ANY DAMAGE

5. KEEP IT REAL IN THE POST. IF IT'S NOT IN THE BEST SHAPE SHARE THAT. IF IT'S IMPECCABLE SHAPE AND A NAME BRAND SHARE THAT TOO. DON'T OVER LOOK YOUR ITEMS THAT AREN'T IN THE BEST SHAPE... YOU ALL KNOW THE SAYING RIGHT " ONE PERSONS TRASH, IS ANOTHER COOL PERSON'S TREASURE/ COME UP! YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT WILL SELL UNTIL YOU PUT IT OUT THERE.

6. DON'T LOSE OUT ON POSTAGE. WE ARE TRYING TO GET MONEYYYY NOT SPEND IT! CHECK YOUR POSTAL PRICING. USPS IS THE CHEAPEST ROUTE SOME ONLINE SITES HAVE IT ALL SET UP FOR YOU SO YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT IT.




HANGER TIPS:


-WHEN RESELLING ITEMS THAT AREN'T IN THE BEST SHAPE. THAT MAY SHOW A LITTLE WEAR AND TEAR, TRY SELLING THOSE ITEMS IN A BUNDLE. FOR EXAMPLE CREATE A T-SHIRT BUNDLE 5 DECENT TEES FOR $10-$15.


-WASH YOUR GARMENTS IN COLD WATER, THIS WILL INCREASE THE WEAR TIME!
