Vinted employee shares secret hacks to selling old clothes fast

Vinted employee shares secret hacks to selling old clothes fast

There seems to be a tried-and-tested formula to flog all your pre-loved items

After a pretty pricey festive period, forking out for Pancake Day and spending all our remaining pennies on either Valentine's or Galentine's celebrations - it's fair to say we're all probably a tad strapped for cash at the moment.

So, it makes sense why we're all racing to reseller platforms to flog our pre-loved items, help out the planet a bit and have a little cash injection before pay day at the end of the month.

And to help us all out with our side hustles, one Vinted employee has shared her handy hacks on how to sell your old clothes quick as you like.

You can watch the video here:

If you've ever found yourself with a leaning tower of old clothes haunting the corner of your bedroom unable to shift anything on the app, then you may want to consider trying out a listing formula you can follow for the highest chance of making a sale.

And with this clip going viral with four million views, then it's probably worth heeding their advice.

The Vinted employee took to the company's official TikTok page to share her tips on how to get your wardrobe noticed - which recommend that users snap up five key photos and follow a specific order.

She took to TikTok to share the handful of tips.

The first picture should be a front-on picture showing the 'full item', then a back photo also showing the entire garment alongside 'three close-up shots' of labels, interesting features and other characteristic details.

"Having many informative photos and ensuring their quality will help you attract a buyer’s attention and sell more quickly," the Vinted Help Centre explains.

The official Vinted TikTok account also captioned the short clip: "Vinted sellers: Photo tips to quicken your clear-out."

They recommend starting with a front shot of the garment.

Last month, Martin Lewis issued an urgent warning to Vinted users after new rules were introduced to the selling platform by the government.

The Money Saving Expert took to X (formerly Twitter) to share his advice for anyone who has an eBay, Etsy, Vinted or Airbnb account.

Lewis warned his 2.5 million followers: "Sell on eBay, Etsy or Vinted or rent your home on Airbnb?

"Firms will now report some earnings to HMRC, so check if yours will be and if you need to pay tax."

In a follow-up tweet, the financial guru added: "Pls share. Many are worried after reports that Etsy, eBay, Vinted etc will start automatically passing sales info to HM Revenue."

Also it's worth including a few close-up shots too.

Along with the tweet, the financial guru shared a link to an article on the Money Saving Expert website.

It reads: "If you sell goods online on sites such as eBay, Etsy or Vinted, rent out your home on Airbnb, or earn extra income from providing services via platforms including Deliveroo or Uber, then these firms will soon start passing on information about you to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).

"This means it's vital to check if you need to declare your income through self-assessment and possibly pay tax on it."
