It is shocking right? I am sure it is shocking because you have no idea that you could sell clothes on Facebook. You must be thinking that Facebook is for only connecting with friends and family, and it has nothing to do with selling clothes. But on the contrary, you can sell clothes on Facebook. However, before you can sell successfully on Facebook, you have to know some tips. In this article, I will give you five tips for selling clothes on Facebook. So let’s dive in.
- Join some Facebook groups. There are tons of groups on Facebook that you can join. However, you should join groups that are relevant to you; there are different groups for different purposes, so you should join groups that are very relevant to you and similar to your purpose. You should use the Facebook search box to search for different brands that are similar to your purpose (selling clothes).
- You should read the group rules carefully. Every group has its administrator, which means that every group has their own rules which you must not violate. Most groups have rules on what you should post and what you shouldn’t post. Most group administrators don’t tolerate people who break the rules. So you must read the group rules before you start posting or you might get kicked out of the group, and that is the last thing you want.
- Do your thorough research. When you join a group, it is best to study the group well and study how most people are posting before you start posting. Doing this will give you a big idea on the format that works well for posting, how sellers estimate shipping, and what the typical prices are. When you get the trend, you can start posting. You should make sure that you get to know the typical price so that you don’t overprice. When you overprice, you might not get customers.
- Sign up for a PayPal Account. You should have a PayPal account. From the research I have made, I have seen that most groups use PayPal for their payment. PayPal charges only a small fee on every purchase, and the buyers get insurance protection in case the sales go wrong. When you sell an item, you can go to PayPal and send the buyer an invoice by entering the amount of sale, description of the item, and entering an email address. As soon as the buyer pays, you will get an email notifying you that the money is in your account.
