We have recently been approved for ‘Merch by Amazon’ and we had lots of questions about how it all worked etc… (Check out the video below :))
So I thought who better to ask than our good friend Margaret AKA Texas Gal Treasures, who is doing amazingly well on Amazon Merch..
When listing your clothing items for sale on eBay using some simple measurements will a) help to sell the item and b) reduce the amount of returns you will get due to the item not fitting on receipt. I made the mistake of thinking that women’s clothing didn’t need measuring, and the generic sizing label would be enough. A few returns, and requests for sizing, later I quickly changed my mind on this. Every brand has slightly different sizing, despite the generic sizing given. Without the luxury of trying an item of clothing on, extra measurements give a better idea of actual size and dimensions to fit the customer. Continue reading
We get asked so often what words and abbreviations we use actually mean…
Sometimes we forget that those who are new to reselling may not know what a lot of the terms we use actually mean or refer to so I made this video to help explain a few of the more common ones…

With the growing popularity of Veganism and an increased demand for cruelty free fashion products, as a clothing reseller something that can help your listings to stand out above others, and to reach a wider audience, are the use of keywords which appeal to Vegan buyers.
Vegan buyers will be looking for complete assurance that the item you are selling is completely Vegan and cruelty free. Therefore you must be 100% definite that the item you are listing meets this requirement and you can unequivocally guarantee that the item you are selling is in fact Vegan. Continue reading
I’m often asked what I use to package my clothing for dispatch and to show how I go about it. So I’ve made a short video (below).
There is no right or wrong way to do this and I’m simply sharing how I do it. I use a practical, no frills method, simply using Poly Mailers. For larger, heavier bundles I would use a box. Some people like to pre-wrap, or pre-bag the clothing before they go in to the Poly Mailer for extra protection, as I show in the video the Poly Mailers we use are very strong and other than the occasional use of reinforcement tape, I don’t double bag.

Retail Arbitrage is a fancy term for buying brand new stock and reselling it for profit.
