Is it just me or do you HATE cleaning out your closet?
I’m very, very well aware that I have a lot of clothes. And twice a year, I find myself swapping out my closet and feeling overwhelmed by the amount of clothes I have. Typically, I’ll make piles for my sister, my friends, and then a donation pile. I used to try the re-selling route, but it just proved to be SO MUCH WORK AND EFFORT. Since I do have some nice pieces, I really wanted to find ways to resell them and make some additional money. I love the idea of giving pieces that I really loved a second life with someone who wants it as much as I did.
When I was introduced to Flyp, I thought it was almost too good to be true. There are two cool sides to Flyp: 1. They bridge the gap, and allows busy people to earn some $$$ for things they no longer want or need in their closet, and 2. Because they use Pro-Sellers, they’re allowing people to grow their resale businesses.
how it works
Flyp connects you to a network of independent Pro Sellers who will sell your items for you. They handle everything from pricing, listing, negotiating, and packing/shipping. SOUNDS LIKE A DREAM, RIGHT?! When you upload your items you want to sell, the sellers will essentially apply to help you sell (you’ll see how they would price your pieces along with their commission). Once you review applicants and pick one, you’ll send your items to the Pro Seller (and everything is covered by Flyp’s Protection Policy…something I really value and appreciate!). Once the Pro Seller receives the funds, you’ll get paid for each individual sale.
how much you make
When selling through Flyp, you’ll make anywhere between 50-70% of the profit. After breaking it all down, it’s SO worth it when you factor in how easy it is to sell your clothes based on everything the Pro Sellers do for you! When I would list my items on apps, I would really just throw up whatever and hope people would buy. Pro Sellers go above and beyond to sell pieces — they even make sure the photography is on point!
who are pro sellers?
Of course trust plays a big part in this process. I mentioned Flyp’s Protection Policy, and they also have a selective screening system in place. People who want to be Pro Sellers have to show proof of good communication skills, active selling accounts across online marketplaces, excellent online seller profile ratings, $1,000+ in sales, prior experience, and valid ID. So I think the moral of the story here is: YES, YOU CAN TRUST FLYP!
what can you sell?
On Flyp, you can sell designer and name brand clothes, shoes, and bags in great condition. Some of the accepted brands include: Lululemon, Louis Vuitton, Kate Spade, Nike, Free People, Adidas, Gucci, Valentino, Calvin Klein, Victoria’s Secret, PINK, Anthropologie, Levi’s, Paige, True Religion, FRYE, Rag & Bone, Abercrombie, The North Face, J.Crew, Vince, Urban Outfitters, DKNY, Nordstrom brands, Saks fifth avenue brands, and Revolve brands.
The top 10 items to sell are:
At the end of the day, Flyp is a great option for busy people who are looking to essentially “outsource” this kind of work. I love finding services that make daunting tasks easier!
A big thank you to Flyp for partnering with me on this post!
