    Right Im poor so I have gathered a load of stuff Im gonna try and sell on ebay. Most of the things are PS2 games, dvds, books, cds etc. However I have an awful lot of clothes I never wear. Has anyone had success selling clothes on ebay? None of it is 'branded' stuff so Im wandering if its a waste of time cos people would probably search for specific brands.

    My ex used to sell clothes on eBay. Some stuff she sold, some she didn't... I guess it just depends on who happens to look at it. This is probably about the right time to sell anything on eBay as there should be plenty of people looking for xmas bargins!

    I sell clothes on ebay and most of them are not branded.
    The tip is on the product title, put a brand name in even if they are not really from that brand, for example 'BNWOT hooded top like topshop'. In this way when people serach for a particular brand, the product will come up in that category
    Hope that helps!

    Nothing personal, but it is SO annoying when people do that! :P
    I guess it does get people looking, but for impatient, short tempered people like myself, it is somewhat as a deterrent, as it seems a little cunning really!
    Having said that, all is fair in love and ebay...
    Not a bad plan really. If I ever get round to selling anything on ebay, I've no doubt I'll end up trying it!

    well it works though and it does get people looking :rolleyes:
    i use to think it was annoying when i try to look for stuff to buy on ebay but when it comes to selling u just have to in order to sell, otherwise the product just won't sell at all, trust.

    And that will get your items pulled for keyword spamming, which means you've wasted your listing fee and got a strike on your account.

    Don't waste title space with words like "[email protected]@K" or "cheap" as people won't search for them. Make sure you list in the right category too. But mostly clothes don't sell that well, unless they are BNWT. You'll need a really good picture, and even then colours can vary so if it looks a different colour then state in the description. Like "This is navy blue, not black". Take measurements, even though you'll state the size anyway.
