Depop's CEO Told Me How to Sell My Clothes Successfully—and It Worked

I'm not going to lie—selling your clothes online is no joke. First you have to sift through your closet to find the items that are still in good condition and that don't feel too dated, so basically what's "sellable". And when it comes to actually listing the items you decide to sell, well, that can take hours if you're being detailed about photographing, describing, and pricing them accordingly. So it pretty much comes as no surprise when most of us end up taking our best clothes to a consignment store and hoping for the best deal.

During my most recent closet clean out, I filled up four large shopping totes with clothes, bags, and shoes that I decided I no longer needed. But I wanted to try my hand at selling a selection of my clothes on Depop before I took any of it to a consignment store. I'll admit it—I opted to sell certain items online so I could name my own prices because I was just too attached to let some of them go too easily. I ended up learning how to sell on Depop super successfully, and it all came down to one simple piece of advice the company's CEO, Maria Raga, told me to do when listing my items on the app.
