So as we who sell our treasures and wares and services online enter the holiday season after 6 months of experimenting and seeing it all in action.
Here is my advice for what sells where.
As we all know how important holiday sales are, here is my down and dirty findings.
Jessas guide to online selling after a now almost 6 months experiment
Poshmark women’s clothes and shoes the bigger the brand the better sales
Mecari …all other clothes, jewelry, and some misc items no spell casting or readings allowed but if you’re a magical supplier, oils herbs etc or rocks just as good as etsy if not better as not as picky. It reminds me of eBay back in the early 2000s in its glory days I actually expect Mercari to really take off. Selling is extremely easy …..and no fuss and hasn’t been invaded by China ..the way eBay has.
Etsy Handmade stuff obviously custom is great taking things from wish and adding your own style, patching up jeans from thrift stores etc anything you can personalize for people, pet paintings etc. Must have some artist ability and good photography skills to really make it there. Good start out for readers and spell casters but watch out they can and will close you down in a heartbeat and a lifetime ban if you try to reopen. Probably the most strict and unforgiving right next to eBay.
Ebay ..music collectibles, rare items, collectibles in general, vintage does great.
Hair extensions etc
Bonanza …Spell Casting and Readings
Artfire …Spell Castings and Readings if you have a built in following
Also good on Etsy but shops can be closed in a heartbeat your safer building up on Fivver Artfire and Bonanza that are service friendly.
Depop …anything extremely vintage clothes wise or ultra in style a much younger audience that few over late 30s will connect with.
Some goth stuff might do ok there as it gains more popularity
Vinted …womens clothes do well some resale jewelry do ok.
Children’s clothes better off on Mercari.
Things I like about vinted. No selling fee and fairly friendly place. Probably the cheapest place if a clothes reseller ..but keep it Juniors …..and womens.
Vinted can be strict too they took down a nike hoodie I had for sale wanting better photos to prove it was actually Nike I was like whatever.
Plain old Facebook groups and pages
You know I do get sales through facebook alone. I do recommend using other platforms and as you get regulars on your facebook pages making direct sales from messages using your paypal or venmo or facebook payments. Its still wide open I mostly get direct sales from Facebook from people that find Artfire to hard to use for my spell casting services and readers seem to do good on facebook alone.
