Best for: All types of clothing
Charges: 10% charge on all sales
EBay is a hugely popular digital marketplace that can help you sell used clothes online. You can buy and sell used clothes using eBay’s website or its app, which is available for iOS and Android.
There are two selling options to choose from: “Buy it Now” and auction. The “Buy it Now” option lets you set a fixed price for the item you wish to sell. Auctioning allows you to set a starting bid for the item, but the final price it is sold for will depend on the buyers’ bids.
You can list up to 1,000 items a month for free on eBay, after this you will have to pay 35p per listing. When your item sells, you’ll have to pay eBay 10% of the final transaction value including postage.
Best for: All clothing, especially vintage, designer and streetwear
Charges: 10% charge on sale price plus PayPal fees
With a community of over 15 million buyers and sellers, Depop aims to make fashion more inclusive, diverse and less wasteful. You can sell used clothes for cash using the Depop app, which is designed to have the same feel as Instagram.
All you have to do is upload a picture of your item and add a snappy caption. Buyers can comment on your photos and follow you too, allowing you to sell used clothes online while building your personal brand. As well as selling, Depop lets you arrange item swaps with other users.
You can list items for free, but you must pay a 10% commission charge on all clothing sold in addition to PayPal fees.
3. Asos Marketplace
Best for: Seasoned clothing sellers

Charges: £20 monthly subscription fee and 20% on all sales
Asos Marketplace is a platform where seasoned clothing sellers can thrive. The platform is aimed at people who want to make a business out of selling clothing online, rather than trying to flog items sporadically.
You’ll need a large selection of high-quality used clothes or vintage pieces to qualify for a boutique on Asos Marketplace. Using Asos can be more time consuming than some other platforms as you’ll need at least 15 items listed at all times. Added to this, all of the clothes you’re selling must be photographed on a model.
This platform is pricey and you’ll have to pay a £20 monthly subscription fee and 20% commission on all sales too. But for sellers looking to establish a clothing brand, it can be a great opportunity to tap into Asos’ large audience base.
Best for: Local sales
Preloved is one of the largest classified ads sites in the UK. It’s a bit like Gumtree and allows you to sell used clothes online for free.
While you can sell to anyone, the website lets buyers search for items based on location. So, you could arrange a collection when you sell used clothes to buyers in your local area and save yourself the time needed to arrange postage.
5. Facebook Marketplace
Best for: Clothing clear outs and local sales
Buyers often collect orders from you directly, which takes the hassle out of arranging delivery. You can opt to post items if that’s more convenient.
Facebook Marketplace is ideal if you need to sell bundles of used clothes for cash quickly. However, higher-quality items may command more attention and a better price on platforms like Depop and eBay.
