Online Stores Where You Can Sell, Buy and Rent Your Clothes

Navya posted on 14 January

Overflowing closet causing you much misery? Then, it may be time to declutter and earn some cool cash in return. Get easy access to websites and apps that buy and sell your second-hand clothes and you’ll be left with plenty of space to spare. Alternately, services are also renting out designer-wear and a range of spiffy (read, expensive) clothes that you can slip into for the next big occasion for a fraction of the tag price.

Buy & Sell

Revamp My Closet

An online store for buying and selling closet discards, Revamp My Closet has become popular with shoppers in Bangalore. If you are looking to get rid of those barely worn clothes, that you no longer fancy or fit into, you just need to drop Revamp My Closet a mail. They’ll get in touch, pick up your clothes, share a quote after a thorough inspection, and then pay you. If you are looking to buy, you’ll find bargain purchases from high-street brands that’ll make you very happy.

Zapyle

Rashi Menda, the brain behind this much-loved app, launched Zapyle to solve the problem every woman faces – not having any clothes to wear even while staring at a closet full of clothes. The platform looks a lot like Instagram and sellers will only have to post a picture of the item they’d like to sell. To ensure authenticity of products, Zapyle only accepts items from a curated list of international and Indian brands. Once a buyer shows interest, team Zapyle will swoop in, pick up the product from you and send it across to a buyer. You can read all about Zapyle here.

Elanic

With Elanic, shopaholics need not rue their impulse buys anymore. Launched in 2015, the app helps you list gently-worn items including apparel, jewellery, shoes and bags from your wardrobe. Buyers can browse through the items and choose what catches their eye. Before, the product is shipped over, Elanic checks for wear and tear, authenticity, and spruces it up so that you get an (almost) brand-new product.

Rent
