Tips & Tricks: successful selling!
How do you actually sell properly? The competition is big and the market is diverse. So how do you post articles, what do you have to pay attention to in the photos and how do you upload your first article? We’ll show you step by step how to turn your old clothes into cash, what tricks you can use to get more clicks and how to rate users.
How do I take advantageous photos?
You can start directly as soon as you have registered. To sell your clothes, we start with the photos. To earn your first money, you need to take pictures of your items. The best way to do this is by taking pictures of yourself wearing the item and creating an outfit around it. Of course, only if the article still fits. Good lighting for the photos is also important so that the buyer can see the garment as realistically as possible. Once the photos are taken, you can upload your item directly.
- Wear photos (create outfit)
- Good light
- Add detailed photos
Upload your first article!
To maximize your chances of selling, you need to pay attention to details. An accurate description of the item is very important. Always describe your items accurately to avoid misunderstandings and to highlight special features. To give your customers an even better orientation, you can measure the garment and indicate your body and clothing size. Hashtags give you a wider reach, so always include them when they match the item. Never set your prices too high and look for similar items in the same condition online.
- Enter your body and clothing size
- Measure exact dimensions
- Highlight damage or special features
- Use hashtags
How do I push my articles?
If you want to sell your item even faster, you can push your item for a small fee. To do so, click on the button “Push Article”.

You want to sell more: Ebay & Vestiaire
Want to learn more about ReBuy and get to know more apps? We’ll introduce you to Ebay Classifieds and Vestiaire Collective. On both portals, you can post used clothing or find new treasures, similar to Vindet.
Ebay Classifieds: Fashion, Insider Tips, Buy & Sell
The eBay Classifieds app is becoming more and more popular. This is due on the one hand to the simple and straightforward operation, but above all to the reach of over 30 million users throughout Germany. This makes eBay Kleinanzeigen one of the most popular apps in Germany. The gigantic online flea market, as eBay Kleinanzeigen calls itself, is basically designed in a rather old-fashioned way and differs significantly from the usual second-hand shopping on the Internet. The visual design of the app is very simple and the app is very easy to use both mobile and desktop. The individual categories and filters can be selected. You can also set the radius yourself if you want to pick up the items yourself.
The app is very well known in the second-hand community and is an integral part when it comes to luxury second-hand products. Here you can find brands that are currently trendy and already mostly sold out. Prada shoes, Jean-Paul-Gaultier and Chanel bags – who doesn’t dream of that? It’s also good to know that Vestiaire Collective only sells second-hand clothes, which are sold by private sellers on the platform. At Vestiaire Collective, you shop new trends and sell everything that is no longer worn by you. Vestiaire Collective has over 6 million users and 300,000 items.
