Introduction to Tradesy
It’s Monday, you are getting ready for the start of a new week. Upon stepping out of the shower, you open your closet and think to yourself, I have nothing to wear. Yet, in front of you is a pile of clothes you haven’t worn for months. That flowy pink floral dress you’ve purchased a year ago for your friend’s bohemian-themed wedding, and those pair of pants which totally looked good on you before but doesn’t fit quite right anymore—all of which are now sitting prettily at the back of the closet. Bags and shoes you don’t even remember having are also tucked somewhere in the corner, never seeing the light of day again.
Care to let go of them but do not know how? How about decluttering your closet and selling once coveted items to people who will treasure them? If you’re like us, keep reading to know how you can do all of those and more through Tradesy, a retail website dedicated to encourage selling and buying designer pieces to like-minded individuals.
Messy Closet No More
Tracy DiNunzio, the founder of Tradesy, had a fair share of messy closets that were full of unused clothing, when she suddenly realized the need to simplify her closet. With a wedding dress she has worn only once, pants that no longer fit, and shoes that are a tad smaller than that of her actual size, she decided it is time to sell her once beloved pieces of clothing. On October 24, 2012, after tireless days and sleepless nights, she and a team of seven successfully launched Tradesy.
How It Works
This now growing retail company allows its clients to sell anything—provided it is in good condition—directly from their closet at any time of the day, from any part of the world. After selecting which ones to toss and to keep, you simply take photos of the items you want to sell, and then you can list them on Tradesy. To make the photos more stunning, the site provides an image cleanup which gives a cleaner look to the photos with a white background. This feature enhances the image of the items, attracting more buyers and thereby increasing their chances of being bought.
Once items are sold, Tradesy facilitates shipping and handles returns. In fact, one of the perks offered exclusively for Tradesy sellers is a shipping kit they provide in every sale for a hassle-free shipping. The shipping kit includes packaging materials, so that your package is ready to be delivered right to your buyer’s doorstep.
To add more to that, sellers have the power to set the price of their products, or they can choose to let the company suggest the best value for your pre-loved designer items. Tradesy also gives the buyers the privilege of returning a purchased item if it didn’t fit, or if it simply didn’t meet their expectations. With advantages both for the seller and buyer, there is no question why Tradesy is making noise in the e-commerce fashion retail business.
