Selling on ebay
 
I have some stuff I plan on posting on ebay but had a couple questions. Is it better to sell the clothes in a large lot or break them up? Do you sell lots by brand?

Its up to u. Depending on item it kinda depends. Little girl stuff separate is decent turn out. If really good lot I suuppose. One in a box type thing I would actually trt thredup instead.

clothes actually don't make a ton of money on ebay. Have you tried thred up? They send you a bag, you fill it, and then they pay you for it.

If you go the ebay route, I'd do lower end brands in lots and higher end brands in outfits. If you're selling gymboree make sure to put what line it's from.

I agree! You won't make a ton but you could make out quite well. It really comes down to style and brands. People seem to do well selling girls clothes individually and in small lots, so I've read.

I usually do a search of ended listings for things similar to what I'm getting ready to list for sale & use that as a gauge for how to list mine. I try to list by item (pants/tops/etc) & then combine brands if it's needed, but I keep the brands on the same level based on their retail prices (does that make sense?). I've noticed it really depends on the item for them being listed alone or in lots. I sold a pair of Lucky brand sweat pants that were pretty well loved & still fetched $39 (additional for shipping) for the one pair with all the wear disclosed. I get $10-15 for a used Victoria's Secret bra, but couldn't get $5 for a FRB full of brand named women's clothing. I find that for adult clothing, it's not worth the time & effort to list the item unless it's in demand & that's why I do the search on ended listings first before I spend the time on pics & listing an item. For children's/baby items, lots seem to do a lot better for me, as to where lots of adult clothing don't seem to do as well.
