How to sell on Vinted (streetwear, sneakers...)?

If you're looking to make a passive income by reselling clothes on the internet, you've probably already thought of Vinted as a reselling platform. However, while it's easy to sign up, selling is a whole different matter. Why choose Vinted for reselling? What are the tips for selling on Vinted? These are the questions that our article will try to answer.

Why choose Vinted as a reseller?

As you can imagine, when it comes to platforms for buying and selling second-hand items, Vinted is not the only one. But, for us, it is the best and here is why.

Vinted's strong points

The first advantage of using it is that buying or selling on Vinted is really simple and fast. But we can list a more generous list of benefits:

  • No sales commissions
  • Fast shipping
  • No limit to the number of items
  • Sales can be international
  • Excellent customer service

So you may wonder what's in it for Vinted. Well, the platform is maintained and grows very well because of the advertising and promotions they create.

Vinted's weaknesses

Like its competitors, Vinted receives a number of negative reviews regarding returns, account blocks, scams and products that don't match their descriptions.

In addition, note the ads on the right side of the screen, even inviting users to leave the platform to find other products, which can be counterproductive and give a bad user experience. Another point that can discourage more than one buyer is the fact that you have to create an account.

Tips for selling on Vinted

To help you out, let's go over the tips to sell on Vinted in a much more professional way.

A trusted and attractive profile.

A good profile is essential to inspire confidence in your potential customers. The elements of a good profile are a nice, neat profile picture of yourself, and a bio that best describes you. Let your future clients know that you are an honest and friendly person.

The quality of the photos

Put yourself in a buyer's shoes for a moment, can you easily recognize a garment in a poor quality photo? Many people don't care about this, even though it is very important. Unclear or badly taken pictures reduce your chances of selling.

We advise you to take pictures in reasonable light. Photograph the garment from the front, the back and the side. Avoid using the flash so you don't get reflections in your photos.

Avoid selling anything

You probably know this, but it is important to remember, not all types of products are marketable on Vinted.

However, when it comes to clothing, you can sell a little bit of everything. Whether it's shoes, t-shirts, jerseys, sweaters, pants, dresses, sweatshirts, vests, scarves, hats, you can sell anything. Also, it is possible to sell other used clothing that can be worn, except for intimate apparel.

The use of "#" in the description.

When a customer is looking for a product for example a blue t-shirt, they type in the search bar: "blue t-shirt". Since Vinted's ranking categories are quite general, it is difficult to rank effectively in the results. To rank well on such a request, it would be enough to put #t-shirt #blue for example. Hence the importance of using "#".

Honesty about the product

This is one of the tricks that will sell you the most. Every person wants to know exactly what they are buying. So, providing enough information about the garment on sale is a good idea. For example, for a t-shirt, as information, you can fill in its size, color, manufacturing material and any other information you deem necessary.

Sell at the right price

When people come to buy on Vinted, generally, they do not want to spend more than about twenty euros. Thus, you need to adjust your prices accordingly while making a profit margin.

Avoiding scams

No one likes to be scammed, especially when shopping. Sending a product that doesn't look like the picture or an empty package can be a scam. The consequences of such an act can be significant: your account can be blocked and your customer can take legal action against you.

In conclusion

Vinted is an excellent platform for selling your clothes. However, if you want to sell effectively on it, it is necessary to take into account the tips mentioned in this article.
