Now that it’s almost fall, I find myself slowly switching out the summer clothes with fall clothes. Fortunately, this also means I’m left with a ton of old clothes in my closet that I want to get rid of. Since clothing isn’t cheap, I find it hard to just throw the old clothes away, or donate them, when I know I could possibly make some much-needed extra cash for them.
Thankfully, I have a ton of experience selling old clothes online for cash. That’s why I’m sharing four of the easiest places to sell your family’s old clothes for easy cash without putting a lot of work and effort into it.

4 Places to Sell Old Clothes for Cash
Poshmark is my favorite place to sell old clothes, but it’s also a bit more difficult to sell clothes starting out. While listing on Poshmark is fast and easy, Poshmark is more of a social network and people without much of a following, may not have much luck selling on the platform.
Still, if you plan on selling a lot of clothes or selling clothes as a side hustle, you should at least try listing on Poshmark and work on gaining a following.

Selling Fees*: $2.95 for all sales below $15. All sales $15 or more are subject to 20% seller fees.
Pros of Selling on Poshmark:
- Buyers pay for shipping
- All items are shipped Priority Mail
- Great way to get top dollar for high-end brands.
Cons of Selling on Poshmark:
- Because all items are shipped Priority Mail, shipping cost is higher meaning profits on items may be lower.
- Need a big following to do well.
- Must be active on the platform to get your items seen more.
- Can only list fashion and accessories.
eBay is great for listing all sorts of things, not just old clothes. Since eBay has been around for many years, eBay has millions of users using their site every day and selling stuff on eBay can be easier than other sites.
While I have been selling different items on eBay, on and off, I have found you can sell all sorts of clothing items on the platform. In the past, I even sold a pair of really hole-y Levi Jeans for top dollar.
Seller Fees*: eBay takes 10% of both the shipping and final cost of each item. If you accept payments through Paypal, this will incur an additional 5% fee for sellers.
Pros of Selling on eBay:
- The platform is used by millions
- You set your own shipping rates, so you can ship cheaper, when possible.
- You can sell almost anything on eBay.
- You can possibly make a decent living by selling on eBay.
Cons of Selling on eBay:
- eBay has 100% seller guarantee, meaning eBay usually sides with buyers over sellers. (not all the time, but is something to consider)
- eBay charges listing fees for listing items. Though they give you 50 free per month, these can go fast.
Mercari is a newer platform, but I’ve already heard so much good about it, that I’ve hopped on board to try it! Mercari is very much like eBay, but they do not charge listing fees.
Listing on Mercari is simple and I really like how straightforward their app is. Before listing, Mercari even tells you how much you will profit.
Seller Fees*: a flat 10% seller’s fee on all items. There is also a $2 Fee for direct deposit requests under $10.
Pros of Selling on Mercari:
- No listing fees.
- Easy to list items.
- No promoting items to sell, Mercari has tons of sellers.
- $10 coupon just for signing up (use this link)
Cons of Selling on Mercari:
- Mercari charges a $2 fee for direct deposit for request under $10. Though you can wave this fee by waiting until you have more than $10, it’s kind of a bummer to have to wait for your money.

Facebook marketplace is easy enough to list your old clothes for sale, but it can also be 10x’s more annoying.
On the Facebook marketplace, you can list most things, but you’re responsible for meeting and deliveries. Since it’s usually done through messenger, dealing with buyers directly can be a lot more frustrating. You may have people wanting lower prices or wanting you to deliver.
If you have a lot of clothes to sell, the Facebook marketplace would not be my first choice, but it is a great choice for items that may not bring a huge profit with fee expenses.
Pros of selling on Facebook Marketplace:
- No seller fees
- Easy to list
- List local
Cons of selling on Facebook Marketplace:
- Dealing with many potential buyers who don’t pay.
- Meeting up to sale the items.
Selling Fees:* As long as you have a Facebook account, Facebook Marketplace is free to use.
While there are many other places to list old clothes for sale, these 4 places seem to do the best for selling fashion and accessories.
