There is a site that you can sell clothing, my sister had a ton of old stuff she donated I could make money on, if only I could figure out how to ship! I'm horrible with figuring out money and prices and I don't have a scale to weigh packages. Here is the rules for shipping from the site.

What are the fees for selling on Poshmark? Our fees are very simple and straightforward. For all sales under $15, Poshmark takes a flat commission of $2.95. You keep the rest. For sales of $15 or more, you keep 80% of your sale and Poshmark's commission is 20%. Once your sale has been delivered and received by your buyer, the earnings from your sale are yours. You can spend your earnings within the app or withdraw your money as cash whenever you like.
We at Poshmark like simplicity. Unlike other places, there is no nickel and diming - we handle the financial transaction for you (including paying credit card fees), provide you with a pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label, and we will serve as your customer support team for your sale. In other words, we provide a simple end-to-end platform for selling fashion!

I just made a sale! How do I ship?

I just made a sale! How do I ship?

Congratulations on your sale! When your item sells, we automatically send you a pre-paid, pre-addressed USPS Priority Mail shipping label. Please ensure you use our shipping label to ship out your order to avoid any delay in receiving your earnings, as each label has a tracking number connected with each order for us to track on our end. If our shipping label is not used, we cannot compensate or reimburse users if a package is lost in transit since we will not have access to any tracking information.

When you receive our shipping label, we recommend you print it out and ship out your sale as soon as possible, as the buyer is eagerly awaiting her item! Most of our sellers ship within 2 days of purchase. Please note that if your sale remains unshipped by the 7th day, the buyer can cancel the order, and you will likely lose your sale and earnings. Poshmark reserves the right to automatically cancel any order that remains unshipped by the 14th day after purchase.

My package weighs over 5 pounds. How do I upgrade my shipping label?

Labels for packages over 5 pounds will incur an extra label upgrade fee per the table below, to be paid for by the seller. If your package is over 5 pounds, you will need to generate a new shipping label in the app. Go to your Account Tab → My Sales → Select your order → Need New Shipping Label → Need Heavier Weight Label. Please make sure you select the total weight of your package so that a shipping label with the correct weight can be generated and sent to you.

Remember, any additional shipping costs for packages over 5 pounds are paid for by the seller and will be automatically deducted from your earnings/credits.

I think you need to get a scale. You can't possibly determine what to charge for an item if you don't know the weight. Heh, I goofed selling a book on Half.com because even though it was a paperback book, it was HEAVY! Over a pound, which I had not realized. So it cost me about $.75 more than they reimburse for paperbacks. Which didn't leave me much after they took their commission.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Where can I find a good scale to buy?

Well, I have a nice little scale that came from Costco. It will weigh up to 11 lbs. This is a photo of it sitting on an 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper to give you an idea of its size. Amazon has this same scale in black for about $20 (the SS one is rather more). Not postal scale accuracy, but it will get you close. http://www.amazon.com/Kamenstein-Stainless-Steel-Digital-Kit...

My only complaint with the one I got was that the battery that came with it was bad right out of the box. (Took me a while to figure out that it was a defective battery and not a defective scale, duh!) But it's just a plain old 9V battery, easy to replace.

That looks perfect thanks for sharing!

I really like mine and I use it for lots of stuff. And one nice thing about it is that you can sit it up on edge to store it, so it doesn't take up a lot of counter space (mine lives in the kitchen).
