Selling Clothes on eBay: How to measure clothing

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.

Packaging Clothing

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.
