Mucking out the closet and earning money: This is how clothes spinning top works

Selling used clothes, finding “treasures” that have already been sold out, or changing former favorite items for new ones: The clothing spinning top app offers fashion fans many options and an alternative to the usual shopping. We explain to you how the second-hand platform works – and how you can really make money with the app

Sell, buy or swap – everything goes with Kleiderkreisel. Thousands of items of clothing, shoes and accessories find a new owner here every day. Here’s how it works:

Sell ​​clothes on clothes spinning tops

If you want to sell fashion on a clothes circle, you must first register as a seller and create a member profile. You can then add items to the catalog free of charge by writing a short description, taking some meaningful photos of the item and wearing it, and stating your desired price. If the item is sold, the customer pays for shipping. The transaction is insured via Kleiderkreisel itself if payment is made by credit card, instant transfer or PayPal.

Swap clothes on a clothes rack

As an alternative to the sale, Kleiderkreisel also offers the opportunity to exchange clothes with other members. In principle, the whole thing works the same as with sales: items of clothing are described and photographed and then placed on the platform.

Buy clothes on a clothes rack

The process works like this: You register as a member and create your profile. You can then find and shop for fashion and accessories via the feed or the catalog search. If you have any questions for the seller, you can write to them, but there is also the option to buy the item directly (“Buy” button) or to negotiate the price (“Negotiate” button). If the item is purchased, payment is made via instant transfer, PayPal or credit card.

Kleiderkreisel and Corona: How hygienic is buying second-hand clothing during the Corona pandemic?

According to the consumer advice center, buyers of second-hand clothing do not have to worry about being infected with the corona virus: “Researchers are currently ruling out the possibility of viruses being transmitted through used clothing. Experts believe that viruses do not adhere well to tissue “says the website. The following hygiene rule should be observed (also according to Corona): Second-hand goods should always be washed as hot as possible, depending on the material, after purchase. Accessories such as watches or jewelry should be cleaned with disinfectant spray.

Clothes spinning top: sell correctly – how it works!

Clothing that you no longer wear, or fashion wrong purchases successfully sold on the Internet and thus also earn money – which shopaholic doesn’t dream of it ?! Clothing sales top seller Miriam, aka “XXMN”, earns over 6,000 euros a year on the popular online seconhand platform and has exclusively revealed to GLAMOR her 12 best clothing sales tips:

1. The right offer

“In my clothing spinning top catalog you mainly find vintage fashion and special things from the 90s. I like to browse flea markets and second-hand shops, search and select special items with history that are no longer sold in the shop.”

2. Popular brands

“Vintage mom jeans and the classic 501 from Levi’s are particularly popular with Kleiderkreisel.”

3. The right clothes

“Vintage leather blousons work great for me. In spring, parts with stripes, floral prints and pastel colors also work particularly well.”

4. The perfect timing

“Winter jackets in summer and dresses in winter? No. Your own catalog should adjust to the seasons.”

5. Good item pictures

“Good photos are the be-all and end-all for sales success. The garment must be reproduced true to the original – color, material and cut should be recognizable as best as possible. That is why I take detailed pictures of each part on the hanger and also one or two carrying photos.” 

6. Cool carrying photos

“I combine my clothes so that you can imagine an overall look. Some girls like to be inspired and then buy a complete style as a package.”

7. Meaningful descriptions

“I describe the garment in as much detail as possible: condition, material, fit, size and special properties. For orientation, I give my body and clothing size. Hashtags increase the range of clothes spinning tops.”

8. A reasonable price

“The price is basically based on the condition of the item and the material composition and should never be set too high.”

9. Good communication

“The exchange with potential buyers is very important – there are often really nice contacts with other members. I am also happy to advise, answer questions and give styling tips.”

10. Packing and shipping

“I pack my clothes with great attention to detail. Everyone can look forward to a nice package with a personal, handmade message and a little attention.”

11. That certain something

“The presentation of the garment, a friendly exchange and a nice communication are just as important at Kleiderkreisel as the loving packaging and prompt shipping of the package. Show your personality by styling and combining it.”

12. No-gos on sale

“Holes, stains, items of clothing in poor condition, incorrect information about the item and late delivery don’t work at all – and in the worst case, word gets around in the community.”
