How To Sell Your Used Maternity Clothes Online

Jun 11, 2008
If you have just become a mom, chances are that you have a closet full of clothes that you will never wear again. Consider selling your used maternity clothes by using an online auction site or consignment store.

Online auction sites will sell your used maternity clothes to the highest bidder and will require you to ship the items to the Buyer, often charging a small fee to list and sell the item. Online consignment shops will allow you to post your maternity clothing for sale on their site and will require a commission when the item is sold, generally a percentage of the item's sale price. Online consignment shops also require the Seller to ship the items to the Buyer. There are several tips to consider for online used clothing success.

Buyers want to see what they are buying before they make the purchase. You should take a good picture because it is an important part of getting your used maternity clothing items sold. Try to use natural lighting and a neutral background when you are taking individual pictures of your clothing. You may also want to consider selling "lots" of maternity clothes. A "lot" is a grouping of like clothing, sold together as a single sale, instead of selling the items individually. When you are taking the item pictures, your goal is to have the quality and colors of the clothing stand out for the online viewer. Upload your digital picture to the website. Next, you should add an attention grabbing title to draw people to your items.

Here are a few topics and acronyms that you might use in your title:
- Great Condition
- Like New
- Note the Brand (Peapod, Target, Ralph Lauren, etc,)
- NWT (New with tags)
- NWOT (New without tags)
- Type of Clothing (pants, shirts, skirts, clothing)
- The Size of the Clothing (S, M, L, XL)
- Estimate of the trimester that it may correlate to (Helpful for first-time moms)

When choosing your title, consider browsing for other maternity clothing items that are for sale and through previous items that have sold to generate effective title ideas.

Next is the article description. Be as descriptive as possible when you are writing each description. Include a full description of the size since international sizes can vary, and for women, each designer often has a different sizing. Also be sure to note an accurate description of the condition of the clothing, never leave out important details like stains or missing buttons. Also be sure to describe the fabric, color and texture. You might want to use the description from the item's tag.

Once you are prepared to list the items, you will need to decide on a price for both the lots and the individual items. Consider the original price of the item, its current condition and the pricing of similar items on other websites. You can now list your used maternity clothing item for sale.
