Yes! You read that right! Selling on the RealReal pays for all of my blogging fees for the year and then some! Believe it or not, I first started selling items on the RealReal this past March. The main reason that I started selling items on the RealReal is due to something that I noticed with my Poshmark sales.
If you have ever looked through my Poshmark closet, you will notice that I price my items within certain price points. I have a reason for this. People LOVE to underpay for high designer items. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love getting a good deal on designer items too. However, I noticed that on Poshmark that people were taking it a little too far. For example, someone once offered me $10 for a Tory Burch bag that I have priced at $150. After this kept happening time and time again with my designer items, I decided that I wasn’t going to sell them on Poshmark anymore.
Knowing the true resale value of these items, I realized that I wasn’t presenting these items to the correct audience. As a result, I decided to try selling my designer items on the RealReal. The selling process on the RealReal is really simple and convenient. First, collect the items that you’re looking to sell and be sure that they are on the accepted brand list. I actually keep a copy of this list in my reselling binder for quick reference.
In addition to women’s items, the RealReal accepts fine jewelry and mens and children’s items. Next, prepare the inventory packing slip online or through the app. All you have to do is select the category and brand of the item. Once you’ve created your list, print it out along with the shipping label. Simple enough, right? Now, just take your package(s) to UPS and you’re all done. (If you don’t have a box, you can request one from the company for free). Now, you just need to sit and relax while the RealReal does the rest.
Once the consignment process is complete, a representative from the RealReal will reach out to assist you in any questions that you might have about the process. I have the RealReal app on my phone so I am able to track my progress along the way.
Over this past year, I have made enough money from my RealReal sales to pay for all of my blogging fees for not only this year but also this upcoming year. I am also planning to use the additional money that I have made to make some upgrades to the site. I would definitely recommend selling any designer items that you might have on the RealReal.
At the moment, I make 55% commission on my sales but the more you sell, the higher your commission. Also, I love that all of my items are authenticated by a team of brand experts as soon as they enter the warehouse. Overall, selling on the RealReal has been a great experience for me and is something that I would recommend to everyone out there.
