Tradesies! (Blog Sale + Free Ad Space)

Today, I'd like to talk about a great website I found recently for buying & selling women's clothes, shoes, purses, & accessories. And no, I am not being paid or in any way compensated to write this post. I just really love the website!

It's called Tradesy. Their slogan is: Tradesy turns your closet into cash.

Basically, what you do is create an account & you can post items that are new with tags, like new, or gently used & sell them. You enter in the retail price (what you paid for the piece) & Tradesy recommends a price to sell your item at based on the brand name, the condition, how much information you enter about the product, & how likely others are to buy that item given the price.

Tradesy automatically factors shipping into your price as well. When your item sells, Tradesy ships you a pre-paid, pre-addressed bag within 3-5 days. All you have to do is stick the item that sold in the bag & send it in the mail to whomever bought it! So easy!

Another plus is if your item gets returned because it didn't fit the buyer, you still get to keep the money you earned from selling it. Tradesy deals with the rest. You get 90% of what you sold your item for. Tradesy only keeps 10%. For example, I sold a shirt for $2.00. With shipping factored in, the buyer spent $7.50 on my shirt. I earn $1.82 from that sale. This particular shirt was gently used & a relatively cheap brand (Basic Editions), but if you sold a more expensive brand that had never been worn before, you would be earning more money!

I know everyone these days is using Poshmark, but what sucks about that is you have to have an iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad in order to sell your items. You just need a computer with Tradesy!

Tradesy also "cleans up" your pictures of the items you're selling. They erase all the background junk and hangers to showcase just the piece you have for sale.

I've included some of the items I have for sale below. To purchase, just click the picture of the item, set up a free account & follow the steps! All prices already include shipping!! To see more of the items I have for sale, click here or click the Tradesy button in my sidebar!
