DO you want to clear out your wardrobe and make some cash in the process?
With a growing number of apps and websites for reselling clothes, it is now easier than ever. Here is a rundown of the best and how much they charge . . .
VINTED: Great for selling every- thing from sportswear to high street brands and designer gear. Best of all, the seller pays nothing. Buyers pay a fee of three to eight per cent, plus 30p-80p, to cover refunds if their items do not arrive or if they get damaged in the post.
DEPOP: Loved by students and twenty-somethings because it looks like Instagram and is easy to use. It tailors listings shoppers see according to the brands and styles they have previously liked and searched for. There are no fees to list an item but you pay ten per cent commission on anything you sell.
PRELOVED: Similar to Gumtree, Preloved lets you post online adverts that are targeted at people in your area. This means you can arrange for buyers to pick items up and pay you by cash or PayPal on collection so you can save on postage. It’s free for basic membership or you can pay an annual fee of £5-£15 for extra features to boost your listings.

FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE: Another easy way to sell to local buyers using just your Facebook account. Most users are looking for a bargain, so you might not get a high price, but it’s fairly hassle-free and you don’t pay commission or listing fees.
EBAY: You can list up to 1,000 items a month for free. You’ll pay commission of 12.8 per cent on what you sell, plus a 30p fee. The sum on which commission is calculated includes postage, tax and other fees, which can bump it up. You’ll also pay more if your item sells for over £2,500 or if you want to add a “buy it now” price.
