Depop Shop in Your Pocket

2015/01/img_4329-0.jpg

When you have as many clothes as I do you must constantly get rid of them to restore balance to the shopping universe. But this single digit weather is not a desirable circumstance for selling clothes on your front lawn. Maybe you don’t even have a front lawn. Either way yard sales are cost effective but not practical. With the age of growing technology and social-preneuership there are many apps available to make “out with the old and in with the new” easily accessible. I spoke about the Depop app in a previous post (There’s an App For That) and it is still one of my favorites.

Depop Market is available for iOS and android and places a store front right in your pocket. You simply take a photo and upload. You choose the price and you are done! Don’t forget to add the shipping price! I learned that the hard way and had to send some items out for free.

You can link the income to your bank or PayPal account and you are in business. Payments can be made using Debit, credit or PayPal transfers and Depop takes a small commission of sales and that is the only fee.

To promote your sale and tell your friends and followers about your business all you have to do is share the photo to your twitter, Facebook or Instagram. You can even have your own sales and coupon codes to help your customers save money and promote good business practices.

When someone makes a purchase from your shop your officially your own boss! I find PayPal and USPS to be the easiest and safest ways to process payments and ship packages.

You can pay for the shipping labels with the money from the sale directly through PayPal and print shipping labels from your computer. I even took it upon my self to stock pile priority shipping labels at home and even got a role of packaging tape so I would not have to spend time going to the post office and waiting on those long lines.
