MAKE THE BUYER PAY FOR SHIPPING!!! I’ve never paid for shipping, nor will I ever. If you want it, you pay to have it shipped to you. It’s just that simple.

Thank you, I'm scared because I tried poshmark with no sales and I have great kids tops.. Now I feel Sad. But I'll try on ebay but not sure how to start. Can you make a step by step video ..

I am taking a charity bundle to Cuba. 50 cents per item? Where are you buying, in Cebu, Philippines? In Canada, at big chain thrift stores (Value Village,) regional ones Talize), or even independent real charity ones, the average price is $4 to $12 EACH item. Even when I go to major sales for half-price or get my senior's discount (10-130%) it is rare to get kids clothes for less than two dollars -- that is four times what you say you are paying. Five dollars for something fabulous or two dollars for something very good - this is my target. And I am very selective about not taking anything with stains or that needs repair. Brand name and themed items (Disneyland etc) is over-prriced IMHO. Perhaps the thrift store matket is totally different in USA, what with our weak currency, higher labour costs, more 'advanced' social welfare system and hence much higher taxes, plus higher transportation and postal costs. Short story: you can't buy quality in Canada for anything close to the price you are mentioning. The only way I can get close is by going to smaller independent thrift shops run by churches etc and ONLY buying items that are on sale. And then it is just a few pieces. It is terribly tiome-consuming work. So, fifty cents each here is dreaming. Canadian viewers keep this in mind. I welcome hearing from viewers in other countries, especially UK, Australia, NZ etc.

How much does it cost to star this business
Crystal Halliwell (1 year ago)
Hey Casey, thanks for your videos! I've been buying higher end brands of kids clothes and trying to sell them on eBay...some sell right away, some take a while. I figure higher end brands get more bang for my investment...is this flawed thinking? Just looking for part time income for now.

Hi there! I'm going to start selling my sons baby clothes on ebay. It is mostly Carter's with Oshkosh, Gerber, ect. A lot is like new, with A LOT never worn! My questions are would it be more profitable to sell Individual pieces, or small lots? Also do you ever sell items with small defects or stains. Then just make sure they are photographed and pointed out in the listing
LiS Wright (1 year ago)
It's 2017 and kid's clothing are the worst to sell now because Facebook swaps have taken over.
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
Ouch
RockstarFlipper (1 year ago)
It does ok sometimes
LiS Wright (1 year ago)
I went to a garage sale today and the lady wanted $5 a pop for her kid's clothes.
rochelle prather (2 years ago)
I love your quotes "you can't grow your sales unless you grow your inventory" and the world is not conquered by home runs but by singles and doubles". Again another great video! After my divorce I had to get a storage to put my beloved items and I was going to get rid of everything now I and just going to put those bad & good memories on eBay! Keep the unit to house my inventory. Again another great video!!!
Cole Hepburn (2 years ago)
the problem is you need to be up in the sellers on evay to get seen most of the time but grwat job im thinking of this myself!
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Yes keeping your items up in the search rankings is VERY important. Top rated and free shipping
Mariam Arshad (2 years ago)
Thanks for the video! Question, do you find auction style or fixed price listing more effective for selling kids clothes.
Love Always, LaLa (1 year ago)
naturegirl2110 I find that free shipping almost always attracts more buyers.
naturegirl2110 (2 years ago)
RockstarFlipper Do you do free shipping on kids clothes
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Fixed price.. i almost never do auctions
Summer Rose (2 years ago)
Great video many thanks
Stacey Walker (2 years ago)
How do you price cothes?? I know some of those are cheap new, yet you still get 10-15$ for them?? Good job!!
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Used items i average $10-$15 on clothing yes. You just look up similar and price accordingly. Typically the new price isn't too important because the item might not be available any longer. or available to the person who is buying it

What popular kids clothes or kids items to sell online?
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Great Question. I will put this in Q&A Friday also. For girls, Frozen items sell good, fancy dresses and holiday dresses. Disney items like dress up princess outfits and things like that. For boys, Minecraft, Star Wars, Teenage mutant ninja turtles and super hero clothing. Also anything designer or really good name brand like, Polo, Tommy, Nike, Adidas, things like that
donna holley (2 years ago)
do you offer free shipping on these items or do you charge
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Almost always free shipping on clothing and most items. Once in awhile we charge for shipping on big items or super heavy ones. Thanks!!

You are so awesome. Your video always helps a lot 👍
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)

Gail Mariage (2 years ago)
I'm thinking about getting into selling on eBay. How do you store your items? Are there bin stores in Houston?
Anna Soliz (4 months ago)
No bins in Houston... Really sux...
Gail Mariage (2 years ago)
thanks.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Our items are stored in the office and the home office room. You can check out my video on tours of both offices. here is the link to all the texas goodwill outlets. http://www.thefamilypickers.com/goodwill-outlet-store-locations/texas/
Kevin Hart (2 years ago)
ive always struggled with trying to sell clothing. either i cant get it to sell or i wind up having to take way too many returns which to some extent is just the nature of clothing.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
I don't get a lot of returns honestly. Just inspect them super good and make sure there are no stains or damage
zolu shka (2 years ago)
Can you talk about how your day goes? Do you source every day what if you find clothes with stains that you did not see in store? Do you wash it? When you list item, do you list every day? How do you prepare? Do you have a special day when you'll prepare say 20 items you are going to photograph? Thanks
valerie jackson (2 years ago)
$2K a month? more like $200. can we see your totals?
mylove ofThrifting (2 years ago)
what is your ebay store name?
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
What do you mean my totals? a screenshot of my eBay account? you can go to my sold listings on eBay and completeds and see i sell double that in 1 day. I know a lot of people have a hard time believing it but selling thousands of dollars a month on eBay is not difficult. If you have never done it then i can understand why, and several years ago 3/4 i wouldn't have believed it either but its def doable.
Jen Schlarb (2 years ago)
I have tried to sell my daughters dresses and I have not had much luck. They are beautiful expensive dresses, and still just cant sell them. I have the most luck selling womens shoes. I sell at least a couple pairs a day.
Jen Schlarb (2 years ago)
All my listings are but it now which has worked so well for the last 5 years. I did best offer for awhile but I didn't like it. I have them priced around $12.99 - $14.99 free shipping. Maybe it's too much?
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
Are you using buy it now with best offer?
sherry1674w (2 years ago)
Thank you so much for posting this, I am still learning and will at some point be on Ebay. It is important to me to know some things before getting on there. You see, I have a certain form of 'dyslexia' and it can at time be challenging...BUT, I will prevale. Just need a patient person to teach me how to work Ebay and get me listed and teach me how to complet listing, and everything that includes, and then I will be good to go. Thanks, Sherry :)
naturegirl2110 (2 years ago)
+RockstarFlipper Thanks. Just hope it works out. Jobs are hard to come by and my job won't give us any hrs so gotta find ways to pay bills. Plus I rather work my but off for me rather than a company that treats their employees like trash
sherry1674w (2 years ago)
thanks...just need more training and help...thanks...have a great day...
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
+naturegirl2110 I would say toys is probably a good bet, action figures, vintage toys, anything like that
naturegirl2110 (2 years ago)
+RockstarFlipper Turns out it's against store policy since I work there. So now I have to find something else to sell. I'll start with my son's clothes and maybe try toys like legos. Just found out a second hand sit and spin we got for free is considered vintage. Once I can figure out the shipping costs for most items then I'll start listing them on ebay. Hopefully my items won't sit too long and the sale will bring in a decent profit after ebay/paypal fees, the cost of sourcing and shipping
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
i have not really bought too much brand new stuff, but at $1.20 each it sounds like they should be a good deal for sure. most used pieces i pay $.50-$1 so $1.20 brand new with tags would be great. those brands should sell pretty well. Your break even price would be around $4.50-$5 per item and i don't see you having any problems getting $7+ per item.
Carsandmore (2 years ago)
Do you wash the clothes?
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
most of them yes.. sometimes they are in very good condition and don't require it. I budget $40 for extra water and soap costs during each month
Larry J Clark (2 years ago)
Great video...I will start to look at clothes that normally overlook. What do you charge for shipping normally?
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
I understand larry. Sorry about that. Shipping would be very very high.
Larry J Clark (2 years ago)
+RockstarFlipper thanks for responding. I am in Canada and selling clothes here would be a losing proposition due to high shipping fee's here.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
+Larry J Clark i offer free shipping as a way to drive sales because im volume based. when i price a piece of clothing i know its almost always $2.60 for normal items and $5.90 for padded flat if its over a LB like heavy hoodies and Jeans so i price accordingly.
Joseph Pfeifer (2 years ago)
Nice video, I have been wondering about childrens clothing, nobody really says anything positive about.   I thought there would be money in it.....didn't think that much. but I can get use to that,  I see some of the items you sold for .25 or .50 cents all the time at your sales in really good condition, but was nervous to buy it.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
I buy most of my kids clothes for $.25 and $.50 and they usually sell for $8-$12 per piece. On $8 sale I get to keep $4.50. So $4 profit on $.50 purchase. It's not getting rich but they add up. And when your selling 20-30 pieces per day it's a nice cushion of smalls. That's in addition to all my adult clothes, accessories, etc. wish I could sell clothes on Amazon lol
michele heiny (2 years ago)
Great video!! How do you display your clothing for the pics for Ebay. Do you have a child size mannequin you use? I am just trying to learn as much as I can so your video's really help.
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
+michele heiny Sometimes we use a mannequin, sometimes we hang them up against a white wall and take the photo, depends on the size etc. But thats the best 2 ways to do it. Thanks so much for watching.
M Hendrick (2 years ago)

RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
+M Hendrick Yeah ebay def gives you a global market. Im glad to hear your going to be selling on it more!! good luck and let me know if i can help any way

I haven't gotten into any kind of clothing yet, but you have inspired me. I've learned a lot. Thanks so much for sharing. Awesome videos! 👍
RockstarFlipper (2 years ago)
+Jess C. Thank you for the kind words!! clothing is really the highest margin items on all of eBay. You can pick up used items for less than a $1 and sell them for $10 and up easy. a lot of them $15-$20 and some even $25+ can't beat those margins, which very little capital output
