The List of Places to Sell Gently Worn Clothing, Accessories

You’ll notice that companies can pay sellers upfront or on consignment. Upfront payments are pretty straightforward — if the business accepts an item, the seller receives payment on the spot. With consignment, the company lists an item on its website and only pays the seller when/if the item sells. It’s important to understand how and when you’ll see your money, so be sure you know how companies handle payouts before you send anything away.
