There are a lot of sites and apps you can utilize to sell used clothes for cash these days. For those starting out, I suggest starting by selling clothes from your own closet first. Get a feel for how to sell and build up your reputation and presence. Then start looking for clothes to buy that you can resell. Thrift stores and garage sales would be great sources on where to buy quality and cheap clothes to resell. The clothes get updated weekly and there is pretty much an endless supply. You can also look for greatly discounted clearance items from retail/online stores (Buying Clothes From Online Consignment Stores to Resell) that can net a nice profit especially after utilizing coupons and cash rebates.
Lastly, don’t forget to check eBay as you can pick up some nice clothes for pennies on the dollar. Good Luck.
