While side hustle culture is real, not everyone can become an overnight TikTok sensation. Yeah, I know; it sucks. But everyone can take advantage of thredUP, the internet’s biggest online thrift shop.
Curated by the brand’s stylists, thredUP compiles quality used clothing for women and children with tens of thousands of new daily arrivals. Obviously, it’s a mecca for eco-conscious thrift shoppers who don’t want to rifle through racks of clothes in person — but you can also make money online by selling your clothes. It’s like passive income without having to learn the language of the stock market.
Unlike eBay, Depop or Poshmark, this website does all of the work for you. The store will set you up with one of its Clean Out Kits — either by mailing you a large bag or by sending you a prepaid shipping label — and all you need to do is fill it up with clothes.
After sending in your items, their team will inspect them for cleanliness and authenticity, photograph the item and then list the product for you. When it sells, you can collect your share in either cash or store credit. An easy-peasy way to make money online, right?
Before you think, “but I don’t have any designer clothes to sell,” stop it! thredUP has a collection of over 35,000 brands. They accept basic tops from J.Crew and H&M just as often as they accept Louis Vuitton handbags. And if for whatever reason they don’t accept your clothes? They’ll either send them back to you or recycle them for you, so you don’t have to deal with that process.

While it’s one of the best ways to make money online, thredUP is still an online thrift store. This means they have a ton of great shopping options. Right now, a lot of items are actually up to 55% off the resale price. If you use the code HELLO at checkout, you’ll get said discount and free shipping.
