HQ News Selling with Curtsy

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

Clear Out is a convenient way to sell more than 3 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 3 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.

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!

    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.

    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!

  • 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!

5 New Year’s Resolutions for a Sustainable 2023

We’ve all been caught in the cycle of forgetting about New Year’s resolutions soon after making them. This year, we’re creating goals based on sustainable values that are much more exciting (and rewarding) to keep up with 💚. Planet-friendly New Year’s resolutions can help you flex your creativity, gain knowledge, and help reduce emissions and clothing waste. Kick off the New Year with a closet clear-out, and use the sustainable resolutions below as a starting point to extend the life cycle of your closet.

Hold a Clothing Swap with your Community 👯‍♀️

Clothing swaps are the perfect opportunity to connect with your community and add some cute new pieces to your wardrobe. Swaps can range from a small group of friends having a home-cooked meal together and trading clothes from their closets, to a large event that helps out those in need of warm clothes for the winter. You can even make a pact with your fam to bring extra clothes to family parties to trade (or hand down to younger ones). No matter the size or intention of your swap, have some fun with it – flex your design skills by creating an event flyer for social media, create a playlist, and set up some food and drinks ♥️.

Clear out your Closet to Sell Second-Hand 👗

The best part of selling second-hand is knowing for sure that a piece you no longer want is going into the hands of someone who wants or needs it – and can easily pass it on in the future. One of the best ways to resell consistently is by doing recurring closet cleanouts. This gives you the chance to slow down and decide which items you’d like to let go of or add to your wardrobe (plus it keeps your space less cluttered✨). As a seller, you can try challenging yourself to use sustainable shipping practices, like reusing packaging you already have or adding thank you notes for buyers on recycled paper ♻️.

Mend your Clothes 🪡

The longer you have a piece of clothing, the more wear and tear it may get, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to toss or donate it! There are so many ways to mend your clothes, from getting them fixed at a tailor to learning how to sew so you can fix holes and tears yourself! To avoid having to do too much damage control, take a little extra time to give your clothes some TLC from the time you first get them. One of the easiest ways to start doing this is to learn how to read clothing care labels (because who can really tell what those random shapes and symbols actually mean?) Once your clothing can’t take any more washes, consider upcycling it into something like a purse or reusing the fabric for cleaning (or even a fabric art project ).

Upcycle your Old Threads 🎨

Upcycling – which is basically giving unused materials new life/value –  is the perfect way to let your creativity shine. One quick scroll through upcycling TikTok will start you off with tons of inspiration, and you’ll never look at the old fabrics, charms, and unworn clothes you have laying around the house the same! A lot of upcycled items with parts from brands like LV and Chanel can be found on Curtsy, but you don’t have to have a luxury element in the upcycled pieces you create. By upcycling, you can keep finished products from ending up as waste, and add your own twist for a whole new design 🪡💛.

Try out Sustainable Brands ♻️

To help keep your sustainable habits going past New Years, keep yourself up to date on sustainability in the fashion world. On top of doing your own research, it also helps to read articles and purchase clothing (secondhand is even better, of course) from sustainable brands like Patagonia and Levis. The people behind these brands are dedicating endless hours towards being industry leaders in sustainability. On their websites, some brands like Patagonia have environmental activism sections about their values, opportunities to get involved in environmental groups, and inspirational stories from activists around the world 🌎.

From the closet of a friend, to a unique upcycled accessory, to the Curtsy feed, there’s always more life to give to your clothes ✨

Closet Clean-Out Tips: 4 Questions to Ask Yourself💬 

Cleaning out your closet doesn’t have to be confusing or stressful! Like looking through old photos or meeting up with a past friend, a closet clean-out can be a chance to reflect on how you’ve changed and where you’re headed. By taking the time to ask yourself four simple questions, you can be one step closer to having a thrifted wardrobe that changes with your lifestyle ♻️.

1. How does this fit me?

Try to dig a little deeper beyond how the piece fits your body – when you wear it, do you feel comfortable and confident? Try on some clothes in the mirror, turn on your favorite music, and take note of how the color, texture, and movement of the piece makes you feel. If you’re sure you’d want to resell a piece on Curtsy, you can use this time to start creating content for Try-On videos! Create a yes, no, and maybe pile, and remember that they aren’t set in stone. Pieces can be moved around as you keep asking yourself these questions.

2. How does this fit my lifestyle?

What do you spend a majority of your time doing for work, me-time, and social time? If you work from home, you’ll need comfy yet professional basics. To make getting out of the house on weekends that much more exciting, you might want some extra glam dresses (Revolve dresses are my go-to 💛). If you’re on a sports team at school, maybe you could use some North Face pieces that keep you cozy on walks to class and activewear that fits just right.

3. Can I give this more life or am I ready to let go?

Sometimes you’ll come across pieces you’ve had for so long you can’t imagine letting them go, like a leather jacket that’s been with you through years of ups and downs. Think about the care the item requires and if you have the time/energy to fix any damage. If it’ll just be taking up space after many closet cleanouts, it could feel refreshing to resell that pre-loved item to someone new! Even better if the category or brand is trending on Curtsy and could sell super quickly 🤑!

4. How can I expand on styles outside of my comfort zone?

The best part about a closet clean-out is that it helps your closet evolve with you 🌱. Are there any pieces that stuck out to you that you’ve been nervous to wear, but want to try, like vintage sweaters? Or a piece you thought was your aesthetic but no longer feels right (that might even still have the tags on 🏷️)? Reselling is the perfect way to explore looks outside of your comfort zone while knowing you’re sustainably switching pieces in and out.

  3. Cloud Paint Blush. Glossier is the reigning champ in aesthetics and branding, so toss in any of their products for a home run gift any girl will cherish 💋. 
  4. A new daily planner 🗓. While some of us have switched to digital calendars over the years, the lucky few who still enjoy analog planners would surely LOVE one for the next year ahead.

Gifts for the Luxe Lover…for the boujee babes in your life 💎

3 Trending Winter Aesthetics for 2022

A new season calls for new fashion aesthetics! At Curtsy, we are always keeping up with trends to keep YOU up with the styles worn by fashion and TikTok girls (and maybe even become one yourself). For Winter 2022, it’s all about layering, staying warm and keeping it basic while also keeping those sequins and glitter pieces from New Year’s Eve in rotation! 

From the preppy vibes of Academia Style, Romantic Ballet and Dollette Core to flashy and fun Euphoria inspo, here are the 3 trending winter aesthetics for 2022 to know (and wear).

This style is layers on layers on layers! If we’re being honest, the base of the Academia aesthetic has never really been out of style – it just reinvents itself with the times. Think Blair Waldorf meets literature student reading a romance novel under a tree (lol).

If you love wearing neutral tones, oversize blazers over button ups and turtlenecks, pleated skirts and trousers, loafers, tights and neutral bows or chunky headbands – you may be into the Academia aesthetic. It is such an easy style to replicate with items we all probably have in our closets because they are capsule staples!

🌟Euphoria Inspired

We are pretty sure you already know EXACTLY where we are headed with the Euphoria aesthetic because it’s one of the most talked about shows in the last two years! Although the aesthetic needs no explanation, all we have to say is pretend it is New Years Eve everyday!

Expression is the number one word that comes to mind when the Euphoria aesthetic is mentioned. Not only does each character wear their hearts on their sleeves, but their entire personality can be seen the moment they step on screen. From glittery, bright eyeshadow to cutout dresses and low waisted pants – dress like the party never ends!

🎀 Romantic Core

When you think of lace, tulle, pink roses, fresh flowers, lots of blush on your cheeks and nose and the color pink, a Romantic aesthetic girl is probably not too far behind! Instead of the off-duty model, think off-duty dancer in wrap tops, elevated athleisure, ballet flats or UGG’s and anything that reminds you of a doily on the dining table! 

The Romantic aesthetic is all about soft and cute pieces. Terms like Dollette, Coquette and Ballet Core describe someone who loves this aesthetic.

20 Tips to Ship: The Curtsy Shipping Guide

You know the old saying…ship happens! You’ve just sold something on Curtsy and now the only thing standing between you and scoring extra cash in your Curtsy Wallet is shipping. We’re here to show you that shipping is easy. Straight from our customer support team to you – here’s tips to becoming a shipping queen! With this shipping guide you’ll ship easy and have buyers (and USPS) coming back for more!

The 1-2-3-4 of Shipping

  1. Print out the shipping label we email to you or request a label to be mailed to you 
  2. Pack your item in any small box or envelope, or use our Shipping Kit
  3. Give your package to USPS, schedule a pickup, or drop it in a USPS bin 
  4. Be sure to mark your sale as “Shipped” in the app and you get paid once it ships! 

For more details check out our Shipping FAQ Page

Label Tips: We’re into labels

  1. Print your label: Regular size 8 1/2 paper or label sticker works just fine!
  2. Use the link from Curtsy to print so the label is clear (not a photo of a photo).
  3. No printer? No problem! When creating your pre-paid label, tap “request label via mail”. We’ll mail your label the next business day, and you’ll receive it within 5-7 business days! Request a label soon after you sell to avoid delays.
  4. You can also find a printer near you at a print shop, school, friend’s house or public library.

Packaging Tips: Wrap it up

  1. Pack up your item, any small box or envelope will do!
  2. Order our Shipping Kit: Don’t worry about finding a box! Buy a shipping kit and we’ll send you mailers to have for your next sale.
  3. Sustainable packaging: Reuse a box or envelope (Yes, even an Amazon box). Remember to remove or cover old labels and tape. 

💡Pro tip: In a pinch? Flip a previously used mailer inside out. What’s old is new again!

  1. Tape on your label, but DON’T tape over the barcode (it’s harder for USPS to scan over tape).
  2. Use tissue paper and padding on fragile items like sunglasses and jewelry, and to keep your items from moving around in the box.
  3. Keep it clean: Make sure items are dirt free and match your listing.
  4. Take photos of your item before and after packaging for your own records.

Personalization Tips: Be a little extra

  1. Add in a thoughtful thank you note, sticker, or extra gift with your package as a fun surprise for the buyer.
  2. Draw doodles on the package for a nice touch.

Drop off Tips: Options to Ship it!

  1. Let USPS come to you: You can schedule a pickup with USPS using this link, and USPS will come to you! 
  2. Drop off at the post office: Leave your package with a clerk inside USPS, and be sure to get a receipt for your records!
  3. Use a blue USPS drop box: Drop your package in any USPS dropbox near you! (This option can sometimes come with increased delays, so try the options above first if you can! Be sure to snap a quick pic of the info on the drop box too!)

Quick Guide to a Winter Closet Clean Out

Who says you have to save your big closet clean out until Spring? The sun is officially setting later each day, so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the burst of energy that comes with a bit of extra daylight! ✨

I have three easy steps you can follow to clean out your closet for this Winter season AND help you play your part in circular fashion* for years to come (*a sustainable approach to fashion where clothes are reused and recycled in endless amounts of ways, instead of throwing them away). ♻️

🔎 Figure out what’s already working

Imagine your closet as a place you can emerge from each day with a layer of armor that helps you take on the world  💪. I know that might seem impossible with a prom dress stuffed in the corner, or an old winter coat blocking the flared corduroy pants you just bought – but that’s all background noise for now! Time to take a deep breath and figure out what does work first. 

First, ask yourself how you want to look and feel this season, and set aside the basics and classics that’ll fulfill that vision 👁️‍🗨️. Now comes the fun part – what are some unique gems buried in your closet that will show the world your outfits are made for you and no one else? Set these aside too! (Need some help? Make a 2022 vision board).

The answers might come right away – but if they don’t, you can always keep mental notes over a week or two on the pieces you are drawn to/wear the most, and set those aside in your closet 💭

💚 Make your space sustainable

If anything is constant, it’s change, but creating a space where you can cycle through changes and evolve will help you stay grounded for the long run. To keep the closet clean out momentum going throughout the year (and the year after that 🤩), try setting aside an area for all things resell. This could be a section of your closet, a corner of a room, or even an attic space, where you go to decide what you want to donate, resell, and buy for yourself. You can set up some warm lighting, a full-length mirror to try out different looks (and model items to list on Curtsy! 📸), and a cozy chair or floor pillow to pack up your sales and browse for those hidden gems (bonus points if you call this your Curtsy Corner 😉).

💎 Thrift Your Dream Closet

At this point, you probably can’t wait to level up your winter wardrobe with key pieces – like the perfect pair of platform Converse to go with your distressed dad jeans. But after taking inventory of what works, note what’s desperately needed. Maybe you’re way more comfortable in oversized denim this year instead of bombers. 

Made it a goal to work out more? Why not treat yourself to Lululemon leggings in your favorite color? Or maybe you’ve picked up painting again and want a cute patterned bandana to keep your hair out of your eyes while you focus. Whichever items you end up thrifting, they’ll mean a lot to the person you’re working hard each day to become 🎇

By cleaning out the old and creating a closet space you want to keep going back to, you’ll turn sustainable fashion into a practice for life 🌍💙
