CREATE AN ONLINE STORE
WITHOUT A WEBSITE
Over the past few years, reselling online has become big business. Regardless how much you want to sell, you may not want to go through the processes of building an eCommerce store, marketing for brand recognition or paying for advertisements to get exposure.
If this sounds like you, here are some platforms that will allow you to run your store like a business without having to take the time, effort or money of building a site.

SEND IT, GET PAID
Want to get rid of your clothing but don't really want to run a store? A good solution could be online consignment. Send in your excellent conditioned, name brand clothes and they will analyze and respond with a quote.
If you agree to the quote, you ship the clothes, the company takes care of the selling for you and you get paid.

BUY A LOT LOW, SELL A LOT HIGH
Arbitrage is the act of buying several of the same item, at a discounted retail price to resell at a higher price.
Arbitrage takes planning and technique to know when and where to look for items. You'll get the most return by buying items before they reach their top popularity and resell after they've become rare or semi-rare.
With clothing, however, this can be a little tricky and it will take a lot of research on your part to decide which pieces will carry from year to year.
If you have access to a large amount of duplicate clothing, arbitrage is something you should look into.
