An eBay Millionaire Shares the #1 Tip for Selling Clothes

Linda Lightman—the insanely successful woman behind eBay’s largest clothing and accessories reseller, Linda’s Stuff—recently shared with us how to clean out your closet and make $2000. Today she’s sharing more of her money-making secrets and focusing on a simple yet very important trick that will earn you major cash when selling items on eBay.

According to the self-made millionaire, the key is to pay attention to the details when presenting your items online. “Take clear, detailed photos on a white background. Clothes sell when the buyer can picture themselves wearing the item, and seeing it look beautiful on someone else will make them want to buy it. Include as many details as possible, and include designer names. If it says 6 but fits like a 4, say so. Give details and be as descriptive as possible, and you’ll be making money in no time!” says Lightman.

Now that you know how to sell your clothes to make the most money, we’re sharing the best designer and budget-friendly items to add to your summer shopping list once you’ve earned your extra cash.
