Hey My loves!
Dressing well doesn’t have to cost a ton- if you buy second-hand instead of getting everything brand new. Fashion trends move quickly and some people live their lives by them, so they get rid of anything that isn’t in the magazines anymore. That means there are a lot of perfectly good clothes out there that have only been worn a couple of times, and you can buy them at a good price.
Buying second-hand clothes is the best option for sustainable and affordable fashion and eBay is a great place to find designer clothes on a budget. It’s the biggest second-hand auction site in the world and people are constantly putting new listings on. Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t realize the full potential of eBay because they don’t know how to find the best stuff. Luckily, there are some simple tricks you can use to get amazing deals.
Be Specific With Searches
If you just type ‘summer dress’ into eBay, you’ll get thousands of results and most of them won’t be what you’re looking for. The perfect dress is in there somewhere but you’ll probably get fed up with scrolling before you ever find it. That’s why you’ve got to be specific with your searches and think about exactly what you are looking for. Posts with specific titles are less likely to be picked up by other people too, which means they’ll have fewer bids and you’ll be able to get a better deal. However, if you start getting too specific, you won’t get any results, so it’s all about finding a middle ground.
It’s also worth using typo search sites too. If somebody makes a post with a spelling error in the title, it won’t come up when you search. That means nobody else will see the post and it’s unlikely to have any bids on it. Typo search sites find these posts for you and sometimes, you can get some great deals as a result.
Go For ‘Collection Only’ Items
Most people are put off by collection only unless they live nearby. These listings usually have less interest, so they’ll be cheaper, and you don’t need to worry about the collection issue because you can just use an eBay delivery service to get the items. If you use Shiply for eBay items, you can compare lots of different delivery services and find the best deal. This is a great trick for finding cheap items that nobody else is bidding on.
Change The Filters
When searching for items, change the filters and use advanced search to pick up the best deals. Firstly, set the price from low to high so you can see the cheapest items first. When you do this, you’ll usually get a lot of new listings without any bids. So, now you need to change the time frame to ending soon. This allows you to put last minute bids on items that are still going cheap and don’t have long left until they end.
If you use these simple tricks, you can get some amazing second-hand fashion deals on eBay. Please let me know if you try any of these.
