Fashion marketplaces in India to resell clothes

No longer need your old clothes? Sell them here instead of sending them to landfills.
Sell old clothes in india

Recently, I was organising my wardrobe, and I came across a variety of picks that weren’t wearable for me anymore. And to deal with it better, I categorised them as-

One’s which couldn’t fit on me- Maybe I have just outgrown them (or did they suddenly shrink? :P). 
Yes! Gaining weight is normal and for me, fitting into them wasn’t possible. So I reached out to friends and NGOs, as for them these clothes were still meaningful.

Other ones that are torn out– Old clothes that have started fading or wearing off can be repurposed in many ways. Know how you can reuse your worn out clothes.


Oh! The ones that were bought for an occasion but are of no use now- We all definitely have a few clothes that were bought for special occasions and couldn’t be just worn on any ordinary day.

Why did not we just choose to rent one then?

Anyway, even if you have bought one and really don’t need it anymore, we have got you covered. We have listed out the marketplaces where you can sell old clothes in India and stop them from ending up in landfills, making it a part of the circular economy.

Founded in 2011, Poshmark is one of the biggest fashion marketplaces currently operating in India, the US, Canada, and Australia. They claim to have 700k sellers listed on their website.


  • Easy for users to navigate through the website and get along with the procedures.
  • Given a large community of buyers, the chances of finding the right buyer for your product are high.
  • They will handle all your shipping woes.


  • High fees charged by Poshmark- For all sales less than ₹500, a commission of ₹99 is charged, and for sales above ₹500, 20% of the order value is charged.

Aiming to reduce the carbon footprint of the fashion industry, Kiabza is a great destination to buy and sell used clothes. Hailing from the textile recycling industry, its founder believed in adapting to the changing world and introduced this fashion marketplace to help the environment.


  • Hassle-free logistics, which is completely managed by Kiabza.
  • Clothes that fail to pass the quality test are donated to NGOs.


  • Comparatively high seller fees. Read more about Kiabza’s margin.
  • They claim to list only branded clothes, which creates a limitation for the sellers.

Another fashion re-commerce marketplace, where selling old clothes is a hassle-free journey, is Etashee.

Fill in the form, get your item approved, and you are ready to list your product on the website.


  • Easy to register on the website.
  • Dedicated and responsive customer care.


  • You yourself have to ship the product to the buyer, whereas opting for Etashee’s shipment services will cost you a lot.
  • Commission rate of 35% is being charged on every order.

They sell a wide variety of clothes, household items, books, and much more. Download the app, fulfil the listed criteria, and you can start selling your products.


  • Easy navigation through the application
  • Can list other products apart from fashion items as well
  • Zero-charge shipment, which is taken up by Freeup itself


  • Only available on the app.
  • Limited market reach.

Other platforms are Spoyl, Coutloot but they are majorly operating as fashion e-commerce marketplace. The chances of products getting sold on their platform are fairly low, and hence they are not listed in detail over here. But you can opt for them if preferred.

As the Indian market has just started opening up for fashion re-selling, we are yet to expect much from this segment.

However, even after learning about the negative effects of the fashion industry, we would strongly advise against investing in clothes that will not be worn frequently. Instead, prefer renting them out or making them work a little longer so that you don’t start looking for their replacement.

No matter how much we talk about contributing to re-commerce as sustainable, we still can’t ignore the fact of what goes into making that product, the packaging while buying and re-selling it, and other hidden factors.

Taken one factor at a time, we can surely live a sustainable lifestyle.
