Now introducing Curtsy Clear Out: The Fastest Way to Sell 💸

Clear Out is a convenient way to sell more than 5 items quickly. You only make one listing for all your items that sell via auction to members of our Wholesale program.

For when you have little time, but a lot to sell

Selling clothes online should be simple. After months of research, we learned that the number one reason people don’t sell their clothes is because it takes too much time. Especially when they have a lot to sell. That’s why we’re launching Clear Out, a simpler way to sell.

While listing one item at a time is still the best way to maximize your earnings on each item, Clear Out is the best way to sell a lot of clothes, with a fraction of the work.

How Does Clear Out Work?

To get started just tap ‘sell’ at the bottom of your app and select the new Clear Out option.

Compared with normal, single item listings that are live on the app until they sell, Clear Out listings have 5 or more items and sell via auction over 7 days to members of our Wholesale Program. 

At the end of the week, you’ll ship out all your items in one bag to the highest bidder. We’ll even mail you the bag and the prepaid shipping label to use. It’s that simple. 

Read more on how Clear Out works

Here’s what our users are saying

We’re so excited to share this feature with you. If you’d like more info, watch our video or send us a message in the app. If you’re interested in learning more the Wholesale program, send us a message.

We know Clear Out may not be perfect from day one, so we’d love to hear from you on how we can continue to improve it ([email protected]).

We’re excited for your feedback!

Cheers 🥰

Tips for Selling Clothes on Curtsy in 2023: Seller Spotlight Edition

The Curtsy community is nothing without our sellers. To ring in the new year, we’re shining a spotlight on sellers living their best life on Curtsy and how they sell clothes online.

We love creating a space for you to just do you – whether that’s raking in high earnings as a pro seller or refreshing your closet by selling gently used quality clothes. Read on to meet a few Curtsy Babes, how much they’ve earned, tips on selling on the app, and peek into their Curtsy closets!

  • Earnings: $400+
  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi there! I’m Madilyn Moore! I’m a content creator/influencer specializing in fashion! Because of this, I get a TON of high quality clothing, but i’m always making space for new items!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love using Curtsy because it’s easy to use and has all of my FAVORITE brands in one place! I also especially love their quality promise, so in the event that I get a piece that isn’t exactly what was described- I get my money back!
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    I’m always using Curtsy as a way to make room in my closet for more unique pieces! When I sell, I keep the profit of my sales in my curtsy balance to spend on more clothes!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My top seller tip is to upload photos of you wearing the item- especially in a styled way! I upload my instagram photos when I’m selling items that I received from brands- and it helps people to see the item more clearly and picture them wearing it themselves!

  • Earnings: $20,000+
  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi! Here are my responses for the questions: Hi! I’m Erin, and 2023 marks my 10th year of being a reseller! I’ve been thrifting since I was a teenager, always looking for cool, unique pieces no one else had. I’ve always been passionate about extending the lifespan of clothing, and helping people find pieces they love while keeping them out of landfills brings me so much joy!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love how open and welcoming the Curtsy Community is! The Curtsy team truly cares about user experience, and allows us to voice our opinions on things like new features or improvements we’d like to see. No other app feels as approachable to me as Curtsy does.
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    For the last 2 years I’ve been putting all my reselling earnings into a savings account to put a down payment on a house. Hoping to reach my goal this year!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    Use Google Lens to help you locate stock photos for your pieces. In my experience, items sell better with them, but sometimes they can be tricky to find. This tool has helped me find stock photos almost instantly for a ton of clothes!

  • Earnings: $2,700+
  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi! My name is Alexis Rocco. I’m 21 years old and I live in Upstate New York with my fiancé, Andrew and my corgi, Lucy. I began my account on Curtsy during my senior year of high school in 2020, and have been buying and selling on it ever since! I’ll be graduating with my Bachelor’s degree in early childhood and elementary education this upcoming May and will hopefully be teaching in my own classroom shortly after!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love that the members of the Curtsy community are so friendly and understanding! They are always willing to answer questions or provide additional information and on top of all of this, there are always new and trendy clothes being brought to the platform as a result of the community!
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    Right now, I’m saving any earnings from Curtsy for my future classroom! I’ll likely need to provide most if not all of the books/materials and things for my classroom once I have a permanent teaching position, so any purchases from my closet will really help to make school more beneficial for my future students!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My best tip for new sellers is to keep the price in mind that they definitely want or need for a particular item when posting it and when responding to offers! I will price my items in a way that specifically allows me to be able to send/counter offers while still getting the price I was looking for when posting the item! For more experienced sellers, I would say to keep your inventory current and post new items frequently to keep your closet in the view of the community!

  • Earnings: $1,800+
  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi!! My name is Chesley Paschal, and I am a student at Georgia Tech. I am currently getting my degree in Industrial Engineering. Some of my favorite things in life are traveling, fashion, school, coffee, and taking photos. Everyone who knows me knows that Curtsy is my absolute favorite place to shop. I am constantly selling clothes and buying new pieces to sustainably refresh my wardrobe. I downloaded Curtsy in 2019 and have made nearly $2000 selling my clothes.
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    I love how kind, responsive, and friendly the Curtsy community is. Everyone is always very communicative and open about the pieces they are selling and their shipping times. The Curtsy Community is the reason why Curtsy is my favorite place to buy and sell clothes.
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    I am constantly needing new outfits for date nights, formals, and themed events, so a decent amount of my earnings from Curtsy go directly back into finding new, fun pieces to add to my wardrobe. Every single formal dress I have worn so far has been from Curtsy, and the majority of my game day, date night, and everyday class outfits have consisted of pieces from Curtsy as well. If I am not using my earnings for new clothes, I will put them into my college savings account to help pay for textbooks, sorority dues, and other expenses!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My top seller tip would be to take photos with good lighting, background, etc., and take multiple different photos of each piece. Also, including pictures of how you styled the piece/ how it fit helps them sell SO much faster. Lastly, being open to offers and communicating with buyers always makes my clothes sell faster.

  • Tell us a little about yourself!
    Hi! My name is Madden. I am 20 years old and am a college student studying business and media studies at the University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota. I started selling thrifted clothing my junior year of high school the summer after covid-19 hit. I had way too many clothes and needed a way to cure myself of boredom, so I went on Pinterest and decided to tie dye a bunch of my clothing to spice them up. After I had a few too many pieces of tie dyed clothing, my aunt suggested I sell some pieces. At first I sold on my Snapchat story but I wanted to create an actual platform to make it easier to grow my business. I found Curtsy and absolutely fell in love. Because of Curtsy, I decided to switch from being a nursing student freshman year to business my sophomore year so I continue selling thrifted items and spreading the goodness of second hand shopping! I couldn’t thank the support of the Curtsy community enough for allowing me to continue my passion. I now sell anything from activewear, professional team gear, your favorite lounge pieces, to unique vintage finds!
  • What do you love about the Curtsy Community?
    Curtsy is the easiest app to sell your own items on. It takes less than a minute to take photos of your desired clothing item and to post it. Curtsy is continuously adding new and desirable features to make it even more accessible for sellers and buyers. I’ve tried almost every second hand shopping app, but I prefer Curtsy over them all. Not only are you able to follow your favorite sellers and see what the top 100 most popular selling items are, you can watch popular try-on videos to get a true feel of the item you’re interested in unlike any other second hand shopping app. The Curtsy team is so quick to help with any questions you may have and they ALWAYS have a solution. The curtsy community is unlike any other.
  • Is there anything in particular you are using/saving up your Curtsy Earnings for?
    I’m so fortunate to be able to use Curtsy to help put money away toward college. I’ve always been a busy bee but keeping up with two part time jobs along with classes was difficult. Curtsy has allowed me to still be able to focus on my family, friends, and working toward my goals.
  • What is your top seller tip?
    My top seller tip is to be active and responsive to questions and always offer free shipping! I have made close to $25k alone since starting Curtsy in 2019 by selling 1.5k items! I love interacting with my customers and being able to make sure they know exactly what I’m selling. I love sending out my items knowing the buyers are going to absolutely love the pieces they have specially picked out! Treat yourself, ladies!

  • What is your top seller tip?
    The best tip I can give is to take good pictures of your items (great lighting & plain background) and have a detailed description with measurements included. It can be tough shopping online for clothes so I find it super helpful to have as much information as possible in the post.
