If you’re a college student like I am, or you’re just a person that wouldn’t mind saving (and making) a little extra money then keep on reading.
I love shopping. I could do it every day if my wallet would allow it. However, I obviously can’t buy good quality items all the time especially when there are things that I don’t even wear hiding out in my closet. I realized that if I wanted to keep up my shopping habits I would have to figure out a way to make some extra cash, or find a place with lower priced items. Well that’s when I came across these four apps that I’m about to share with you! Each one of them varies from the other, but they all work really well. I am no way affiliated with these apps by the way. I honestly just think they’re a great tool to use if you don’t have them already.
These are the four apps you MUST have:
Vinted is a great app for buying and selling your clothes online. The best part about this app is that if you’re selling an item you get to keep 100% of your earnings! The buyer just pays a small service and fixed fee in order for this to happen. Also on this app you’re actually able to chat with other sellers/buyers which is really helpful when trying to talk about the details of an item. The last thing that makes this app stand out is that you can swap items with other users, so all you both end up paying for is shipping! Out of all four apps this one is probably the best in my opinion. You can find me on Vinted although I currently have no items for sale: @simpyaubrie.
Thred Up is a little bit different from these other three apps, but it’s still one that I wanted to include. If you don’t want to fuss with putting your clothes up for sale, and waiting for them to actually sell then this is the app for you. At Thred Up you can order a clean out kit, and once it gets to you all you have to do is put all your items you no longer want in the bag and then you send it back! It’s super easy. Their team will pick the items they want to sell, and you will receive a payout! Anything they don’t choose to sell will be sent off to their recycling partners unless you choose to have your items sent back to you. Your payout is given as a store credit until you make at least $20 then you can request a check, or have it put in your paypal account. With that credit you can buy the gently used items they have on their site, and they usually have great discount codes too! If you’re interested in using Thred Up then sign up here: http://www.thredup.com/r/GLW6YO and get $10 towards your first order!
If you’re looking for designer items in pristine condition for a discounted price then this is the app to use. Tradesy is only for selling designer items. I don’t use this very often to sell because I don’t have a lot of designer items at the moment, but everything I’ve seen for sale is in great condition. The prices are a bit higher, but so is the quality of the pieces. I’d say buying your preloved designer handbags on here would be your best bet! Ready to check out their handbags, or sell your own? Then sign up here: https://www.tradesy.com/invite/aubrie-a-7667182?utm_source=RFL&utm_content=RFL0001_7667182&utm_medium=link and get $20 off your first $50 purchase or more.
Last but not least is Poshmark. Poshmark has been my go to for a couple of years just because of how user-friendly it is. You can easily buy and sell clothing on this app. Just put up some nice pictures of your items, give it a little time, and bam! You’re items are sold, and you send them off to the posher that bought your product. Your payout usually comes within about 5-7 business days after your buyer has received, and accepted their item. There’s a great variety of items on this app, and you can negotiate with your seller. I’d recommend using both this app, and Vinted at the same time for your items so you can make sales quicker.
