Babies and toddlers grow up in a blink of an eye. What is left behind is truckloads of baby clothes and gear that get accumulated around the home, gathering dust. However, this may be a good opportunity to get a return on your investments by selling them.
Gumtree gives you the following tips to make money on your baby stuff smartly and efficiently:
- Baby attire must be clean, wrinkle-free and in quality condition. It should be free of stains, tears, or holes. Before selling, wash them to remove any musty odours. If you are selling large quantities, divide by size and season, and pack them in clean boxes or tote bags.
- When selling baby gear such as car seats or strollers, ensure that they meet all the current safety standards. These products must include all parts, pieces, and accessories that they originally came with. If something is missing, this must be revealed to buyers too.
- The process of selling your baby stuff is dependent on your market. Understand what your market needs and is actively looking for. Some classic products that new parents always need are diaper bags, linen, crib bedding and burping pads.
- Advertise your products with detailed descriptions and high-quality images. With clothes, mention the sizing, brand, and materials. For other gear, include information regarding safety standards, warranties, batteries required, wear and tear etc.
