Sell Your Clothing

Step

Negotiate with interested buyers for a fair price.

Step

Arrange for a mutually beneficial pickup time and place for you and the buyer in a public location during the daytime. Or arrange shipping details if the buyer is out of town.

Accept only cash or money orders as payment for your clothing. Never accept cashier's checks or personal checks because they can be easily counterfeited, and your bank will hold you responsible for the funds.
