The plus size clothing category on eBay is one of its most successful clothing categories. The category continues to grow and the opportunity to profit along with it.
Plus size clothing is an industry that attracts new clients and keeps repeat clients. Since it is a niche category it is sometimes difficult to find plus sizes in normal stores, and one must go to a specialty shop. Normal shops offer very little selection (if any) and what they do have is often not considered fashionable. It is also quite costly. There is a huge increase in online sales for plus sizes. This could be due to the fact that certain sizes are hard to find in shops and the individuals who wear them are sometimes self conscious and prefer to shop in the privacy of their own home.
There are many wholesalers who specialize in or at least carry plus size clothing. It is up to you to find these wholesale suppliers and bargain with them to receive the best price. You may be able to find local wholesalers who specialize in plus size clothing, but odds are that you will have to use the internet to find partners. Wholesaler databases, such as SaleHoo can search for plus size clothing wholesalers. All you have to do is type in something like “plus size women’s fashion” in the search bar to narrow your search down.
Be sure to research several wholesalers and compare prices and shipping details. Decide what items you would like to sell and consider what items will sell. A good idea is to check out sites like eBay and see what items are the most popular in the plus size section. This will give you an idea of what will sell.
After you have products and a wholesaler it is time to set up your online plus size fashion.
