    Default Best way to sell baby stuff on eBay

    Hi All

    I'm about to embark on selling excess clothes from DS and DD on eBay and I'm wondering the best way to do it.

    Do I sell individual pieces or put together outfits or bundle a few pieces together in sizes?

    How do you like to buy items?

    How have you had success in selling items?

    Thanks in Advance!

    Gum tree you don't have to pay fees. And it's more local

    Agree, use gumtree instead. Bundle them in size and season and put on gumtree. There is also heaps of buy, swap sell pages on fb.

    If you are on Facebook use your local buy swap sell page. Much less hassle and you don't have to worry about postage. I've recently sold my kids old clothes and I just bundled them into size/season/gender.

    I Thanks for your replies.

    I don't mind gumtree but I find I end up waiting for people to arrive (if at all) so was leaning towards eBay.

    I haven't sold baby stuff on gumtree before so maybe it will be better than when I've sold furniture.

    I'll give it a go!

    I'd only use ebay if you're selling bulk lots of brand names that hold their value second hand, and will have lots of people competing to buy. There aren't a lot of brands that do this... you can check the auctions that are ending soon and see what they're on.

    Otherwise...gumtree or local pages, bundled in size.E

    ETA: reason being, fees and postage will take most of what you get.

    I've found that it's near on impossible to sell a lot of baby stuff on bss sites in my area. I find you need to constantly bump albums and pics and then people want it for nothing (eg even if you put $5 on something someone will always try to knock you down to $2.50). I really struggle with selling stuff and am thinking of just donating to charity.

    I personally use eBay for clothing and Gumtree for larger items. Rather than bulk lots I sell a few choice pieces together like an outfit or 2 hooded jackets etc and charge $8.25 for postage. If its not a good brand name I don't usually bother and just donate to a friend / family or charity. One item you can sometimes get away with posting in an envelope for around $3 like 1 T-shirt or something.

    Baby brands that I find sell well are pumpkin patch, sprout, jack & Millie, Bonds, Esprit and country road
