4 Reasons Why You Should Become a Preloved Clothing Seller Today
It’s no secret that the secondhand clothing industry is booming. Garage sales and thrift shops are quickly being replaced by digital vintage boutiques and resale marketplaces. ThredUp, the largest shopping website for pre-owned goods, even reported that the online secondhand industry is set to grow a whopping 69% between 2019 & 2021.
So what does this all mean?
The resale fashion industry has become a giant ecosystem of consistent shoppers and dedicated sellers. A global movement has taken off, with the key focus being sustainability, low costs and individuality. Not only can you find an item that’s unique and inexpensive, but it also has a positive impact on the planet - what a bargain! But with an abundance of secondhand shopping choices, it’s easy to forget that there are still plenty of opportunities to start selling your own pre-loved items.
So here are our top 4 reasons why you should declutter your closet and start selling your clothing today:
Who can say no to extra money in the bank? Especially when it comes from selling clothes you love but just don’t wear enough anymore. Joining a digital marketplace and starting up your own thrift shop has never been so easy. Market yourself right and you can expect to see a paycheck within days.
The freedom of running your own business
Hands up if you want the coolest side hustle ever! Not only are you your own boss, but you also have the flexibility of managing your boutique from the comfort of your couch. Sounds like a dream job to us!
It’s good for the planet
Sustainability and resale fashion go hand in hand. Every time you pass your pre-loved threads onto someone else, you’re saving thousands of liters of water, not contributing to landfills, and giving your clothes a second chance at life with someone new.
Sharing your fashion style with others
Pass on your style wisdom to others through your very own digital storefront. By showing ways you can wear your items or how you can accessorize your outfits, you could be helping someone else discover their own fashion style. We think that’s pretty incredible.
Either way, if you have a closet full of trendy clothes that are begging to be worn, then don’t wait any longer! You can explore our Seller’s Portal for step-by-step guides and all the information needed to open your own Boutique with Wisi-Oi Marketplace today.
