9 Clothes Swap Apps Listed

Clothes swap apps have gained popularity as an eco-friendly way to refresh your wardrobe. Clothing swaps provide the opportunity to get rid of old clothes without sending them to the landfill, and they allow you to try new styles without turning to fast-fashion brands or overspending on luxury items. Below, we list the available clothes swap apps, detailing their features and fees to help you decide which is best for you.

What We Recommend

Of the apps on our list, four offer free trades: Facebook Marketplace, Listia, Swop.it, and OfferUp. Of these, we recommend Facebook Marketplace and OfferUp, which are the most well-known free options (meaning they have larger user bases than Listia or Swop.it). While not exclusive to clothes, both of these apps offer straightforward trading processes and negotiable pickup/shipping options for your trade.

If you’re open to using a paid platform, TradeMade offers the lowest rates, charging a monthly membership fee of $1 or an annual fee of just $6.

Vinted is also a good option, offering relatively low fees ($0.70 plus 5% of the item price), user protection benefits, and an entirely fashion-focused app. However, note that its trading process is a bit more complicated than some other apps since both parties must pay equivalent prices during the swap process.

The List

We’ve ordered our list based on which apps have the lowest fees, easiest trading process, and largest user base.
