A woman who makes extra money by selling on Vinted has shared her top tips for anyone wanting to do the same. Selling everything from old clothes and shoes to books, homeware, video games and more can be a great way to earn some cash fast.

TikToker Hannah Bevington (@hannahbevington) has explained how she made £6,000 thanks to online marketplace Vinted. The savvy-shopper has been praised for sharing her advice, with thousands watching her videos.

The clip is captioned: "My tips on how to generate more money on Vinted." Speaking to the camera, Hannah said: "I have made £6,000 from literally just selling on Vinted so I’m gonna share it all with you."

Up your prices

Hannah said: "Tip number one - stop selling things for £10 on Vinted, ok? Even my friends do this, they’ll literally have an item which is worth £40 and they will put it on Vinted for a tenner.

"And then what will happen is someone will offer them £8 and they’ll get really p***** off because the person that’s buying the item thinks ‘oh they’re just selling it for a tenner, they’re clearly desperate for money’. You look desperate. Let's all increase the price of our things on Vinted."

The more, the better

She added: "Build a big portfolio alright? So, it might mean that you spend every Sunday uploading 20 items on Vinted. You need to have a minimum of 100 items on your Vinted.

"If you wanna be consistently selling every week, every other day, you can’t expect that with literally just 10 items on your page, you need to have a minimum of 100 items. The more, the better because there’s more chance you’re going to get regular sales and a regular income."

Bright, clear pictures are best

Hannah said: "Make sure you’re taking pictures in the daylight, use a white background. You don’t have to overcomplicate it - use your iPhone, clear lighting, clear picture - because if you’re taking something in the dark before you go to bed and it's all pixelated, and the lighting is s*** I'm sorry but you’re not helping yourself. You’re gonna make it 100 times harder for you to sell the item."

Don't just accept offers - think it through

She said: "Accepting offers on Vinted - if someone offers you 50% less than what you’re selling the item for, don’t just accept it. You should only be accepting offers 10-15% lower than what you put it on for - and if they don’t buy it that’s okay, sometimes it will take a few months for certain items to go but people will pay it, trust me."

Hannah added: “Although it might only seem like a few pounds, it makes a huge difference when it comes to the end of the year. You could honestly make a difference of a few hundred pounds.”

Buy your packaging in bulk

She said: "When it comes to packaging up your Vinted items, stop just going to the Post Office and last minute buying a bag for £2-3. It’s so expensive, I hope people aren’t doing that.

"What you need to do is go onto eBay, literally just search ‘Jiffy bags’, ‘plastic shipping bags’...I literally have to buy bags once a year - in the long run its saving me so much money on packaging. "
