Where to sell shoes online

So you have 200 pairs of shoes in your closet, maybe you only have a few, maybe you just copped a pair that would be stupid not to sell. With all of these shoes piling up you may be thinking, where to sell shoes online.

Whatever the case may be, selling shoes online isn’t always the easiest task if you aren’t in the mix of all the reselling going on. It still is not that bad though. You can do this.

The only reason I say it may not be as easy for you is because you do not have an online store with thousands of visitors everyday, or a high social media following (maybe you do). This is no issue though!!

Preparation for selling shoes online

Where to sell shoes online

If you have bought the shoes with the intentions to resell, make sure you are keeping the box, tags, and receipts, etc. This will help sell your shoes. Benefits to this is that you can advertise your shoes “as new in box”, and with pictures of everything looking original and legit. Things to save and include when you sell:

  • Box
  • Paper
  • Shoe Stuffing
  • Tags
  • Receipts
  • Extra laces
  • Stickers

People will pay a premium price for items in the original packaging. Especially with shoes.

If you are going to be selling a shoe and asking a premium price, or even selling a pair of shoes at all, make sure the shoes are clean!! It takes 5 minutes to rub off some smudges and wipe the soles clean. Sometimes people are putting a few thousand dollars on there feet. Would you want to buy a dirty Ferrari?

Where to sell shoes online Showing off the pair with photos

Make sure you take pictures of everything and every angle for your sale post. Try to only use original photos of the shoes you will be selling. You want good lighting and a decent camera to really show off what you have for sale. Legit photos of your shoes when you are selling online will go a long way.

I recommend finding a nice wall or something as a background, something where there is not much going on so the shoes are the main focus of the picture. Then placing the shoes on top of the box (if you have it) is a nice way to display both the shoes, and showing that they are in the original box.

If the picture is appearing to dark and your kicks are not appearing to there full potential then you will want to grab some sort of lamp or light to point over your shoes while you take the picture. Lighting can really make something come to life in a photo so it is worth playing around with!

Where to sell shoes onlineWhere to sell shoes online

Where to sell shoes online. The first place to advertise your kicks when selling a pair of shoes online is locally, also this is free. Facebook marketplace and craigslist are both great places to sell a pair of shoes online. This will work well for normal not too expensive shoes.

  • Facebook
  • Craigslist

Like I said, these methods are free. Although you could agree to meet with the buyer in person at a public place. This would require extra costs such as gas and a vehicle.

I would recommend charging the buyer for shipping, or just paying shipping costs if it is not to much. This way saves time and you do not have to meet any strangers, or be worried about getting ripped off.

When shipping an item to a customer always make sure you receive your payment first. PayPal is a great service to use for this and they’re no fees.

Sell on a global platform online

Whenever you come into contact with selling higher end shoes and hyped shoes it will be much harder to sell to your local market because that is not necessarily where the market for your shoes is.Where to sell shoes online

You can try an auction site such as eBay but you do not want to be forced into taking a low amount for a premium pair of shoes.

Today there are many apps and sites that already have a data base of customers and allow you to sell your shoes through them. Using these services will cost you but it will be worth it for selling a pair of shoes.

These are almost guaranteed places to get rid of your shoes. Here are a couple places where to sell shoes online:

Check them out they have a lot of great stuff and specialize in more than just shoes! It is also a great place to find new pieces for your own collection.

Go sell your shoes!

Now you can go out and sell your shoes online! Start with your local market, then move up to the big leagues if thats what it takes! Once you see how easy it really is you won’t be able to wait to get another pair to sell. If you think you want to start selling shoes as a business check out some of my other posts:

How to market your streetwear business on Instagram

So you may be sitting on a few pieces of clothing/accessories that you can not find buyers for with your streetwear business. Don’t worry because we are going to resolve that!

Create an Account for your streetwear businessstreetwear business

First you will want to create an instagram account under your streetwear business name. If you haven’t made a name for your business yet that okay. Your business name can be anything. I would try to keep it relevant so people will see what you do. Signing up for Instagram is self explanatory. The site will guide you through each step.

Once you are all logged in you will want to add a profile picture and provide a bio. This lets visitors know that you are selling the items you post. Make sure to include a link to your store, or have an email adress in your bio that clients can contact you at.

>>>Read my post on why you should be using Shopify for your store

Hashtag Hashtag

When you post your items you will want to look at which hashtags are performing best for your item. When you are selling streetwear with a limited supply, or an item that is super hyped, people will be searching by hashtags for that item so it is a great way to connect to targeted buyers.streetwear business

In order to find good hashtags for your product just see what pictures of the same thing with a lot of engagement are using for hashtags. You will see quickly what you want to use.

Build a Following

You do not have to have any followers at all to sell something on instagram. What matters most is that you have it in this business.

On the other hand though you will want to be building a following because it is a waste not to. If you have a following of even a few hundred or thousand people then that is just that many more people that you will be advertising to when you make a post.

streetwear business

To gain followers you will want to do a combination of follow, like, and comment on peoples posts. Search for a hashtag of a brand you like and then just hammer some likes, and leave some genuine comments. Follow people as well in the mix, make sure you abide by instagrams rules though because you can get marked as spam and get your account deleted real quick.

That is a whole other post on not being to spammy, so for now just give it a quick search in google and you will see the dos and do nots. I do not recommend hooking up a follower bot or anything like that to your business account. You do not want to mess up all of your hard work for a silly mistake like that.

Shout outs

Once you get your foot into the community you will start to meet people and make some connections! A great way to boost your following and reputation of your streetwear business, is to link up with other sellers on instagram and do a shoutout for shoutout. You may encounter a fee though when working with larger accounts. Paying for shoutouts can be a great investment though and totally worth it! Just do your research on who you will be working with.

Another great thing about shout outs is that it builds authority when you are working with larger accounts that are already solid.streetwear business

Get real people to vouch for you

Make sure you have your buyers shout you out and leave a review on there instagram. Reputation is key in the streetwear business. Even provide a discount or something in return to do so. Especially in the beginning because you want people to see that real people have done successful business with you. Word of mouth goes a long ways and you do not want to be labeled as a shady business man.Image result for LV bag

The only thing that is left for you to do is to put all of this into action and start flipping some streetwear for real!

How to start drop shipping today!

Okay yeah lets just start drop shipping! But wait we don’t know anything about it so Learn something first before you start drop shipping.

What is it?

Drop shipping is when someone buys something from your store and then you turn around and buy the item directly from the wholesaler or whoever and send it directly to the customer without ever having to see or handle the product.

start drop shipping

You sell the item to the consumer at a marked up price from what you buy it at.

A huge benefit to drop shipping is that you do not have to have a huge warehouse or shop to store all of your product. Only a computer. This means that you can sell thousands of items or huge items that you would never have room for usually.

Another pointer is that you do not have to worry about packaging and shipping each individual order. That would start to require more upkeep, and hiring employees. You don’t want to deal with any of that until you have to. I know I wouldn’t want to be putting thousands of fidget spinners in packages to be shipped each month.

start drop shippingAfter someone buys the item from you, you then buy it from the wholesaler and have them (the wholesaler) send it to the customer.

I hope you are excited!

Start drop shipping 

First you will want to find your niche or decide what you want to sell. It really can be anything you just have to find the market. What is there like 7 billion people in the world?

After you decide what you want to sell, you will need to find your supplier. This can be as simple as doing a few google searches or diving deeper. I would start with google searching for <your niche> followed by wholesaler, supplier, manufacturer, warehouse, etc. You will want to look through more than just the first page I will say.

After you have found a list of websites you believe would be good suppliers, look further into each site finding out details such as where they are located at and how the customer service is. Don’t be scared to email your potential business partner with questions. If you email them and never hear back, I would think twice about working and doing business with them.

start drop shipping

For the fastest shipping and most satisfied customers I would try to find a supplier closest to your target country. Although a lot of stores send everything straight from china. That can work as well it is all up to you!

Once you are set up with your supplier you are ready to start selling, and then drop shipping! The easiest, fastest, and cheapest way to do this is through Shopify. They have everything you need.

Start flipping streetwear for the ultimate hustle!

Start flipping streetwear! Buying and reselling hyped shoes and streetwear is the ultimate hustle because, well you get to be around some pretty sweet gear and you meet some awesome people!

On top of that you can earn a pretty penny once you learn what to cop.

In my opinion the best way to do this is to secure your items on the drop, but this requires skills and research. You will learn these things along the way.

Less hyped supreme drops could be a good place to start, you will just be turning a lower profit.

So now once you have acquired your first few items, you are ready to sell them. A great way to display your inventory and references is with your own own shopify store! Everything looks so professional and clean.

When customers visit your store they will not be scared away because the site looks sketch. Everything will be professional. They take care of everything you will need to sell your streetwear online to customers all over the world!

Using Instagram

start flipping streetwearOnce you have your store opened you will want to create an instagram account for your store because it is a great place to reach the people you want. The internet is awesome.

Make sure you have the store linked in your bio. This is a great call to action method, and can increase sales.

You can start connecting to the community through hashtags by liking and commenting on photos of other similar posts.

Once you have a decent community built up you will have a ton of activity on everything you try to sell. I think you get the picture, you just have to get the ball rolling. It comes with experience.

It has never been easier to sell online!

easier to sell onlineIn the old days there was no internet, drop shipping, amazon prime, etc. You had to physically go to the store that sells what you want, go in and purchase the item. But today it has never been easier to sell online.

How easy to sell online

Business owners had to buy or lease a building/space and stock up on merchandise in house, usually demanding thousands of dollars if not more.

Fast forward to the present and you can have virtually anything you want wherever you want all from a phone or computer.

You can open an online shop and sell whatever you want for practically nothing! 2018 has made it so everyone can be successful. Being a business owner is so much closer than you think.

The thing that really strikes me is the potential of selling online. Think of a local store in your hometown. Sure they may be doing well and making for some happy owners, but they can only fetch who drives by the shop physically or sees there ad in the newspaper and decides to come in.

There are billions of people using the internet every day. There are billions of hungry customers waiting to be fed Every. Single. Day.easier to sell online

Your online shop is just like the one on the square downtown, only you could potentially have millions of people driving by everyday!

Just make sure your open light is on (haha)! In perspective; if you had 100 customers coming in to your store everyday and only 5 out of those 100 bought something at a profit of $20 each, then you would be making $100 a day.

Now I think you can see the math when we have 500+ customers coming through the shop. The sky is really the limit.

So maybe you are making t shirts or jewelry or have some kind of physical product, if so that is awesome! You can brand yourself and become the next Yeti cooler.

If you do not have a product then I assume you will be working on a drop shipping model. Drop shipping can be lucrative it is just all about the niche you are in.easier to sell online

Now I know you are probably thinking you have no idea where to even start.

You have probably heard of all of these crazy things like domains, hosting, servers, etc, and I haven’t mentioned any of that. It has never been easier to sell online.

That is because with the ecommerce platform Shopify, everything is right there. You will be walked through each step, it really is as simple as clicking through a few things.

With Shopify you can customize everything, pick your own theme, colors, create collections and categories and just so much more! Just see for yourself by starting a free trial with Shopify.

You have nothing to loose, might as well see what this is all about! It has never been easier to sell online.
