weeSpring eBay Pilot Program by Ally Downey
When I was prepping for baby, even my best efforts at staying minimalist were defeated by well-meaning gifts and mistaken purchases. So what’s a parent to do with all the items that my baby outgrew–or never really liked in the first place? At first, I only had the energy to set them aside in a closet or unused corner, but soon we were in need of more space in our NYC apartment.
Of course, most of our parent friends were in the same boat… what do we do with so much gear? When we started weeSpring, we set out to help parents make smart decisions about what they needed for their baby. But even the most diligent and careful parents winds up with excess gear– and because so many of our users are sharing ratings and reviews, we knew about tons and tons of products that parents were ready to let go of. So we connected with eBay to take another approach to making these parents’ lives easier.
Until the end of September, weeSpring users can offload the gear and toys their little one has outgrown, right from their weeSpring profile. If enough weeSpring users are as excited about this program as we are, we’ll build a one-click process, making it easier than ever to sell old clothes and products.
We’ve always aimed to make weeSpring a simple, social, and fun way to find out what you need for baby – now we want to help you sell what you no longer need. Check out our blog post with Courtenay, a mom and eBay PowerSeller, who has sold 90% of her children’s clothing on eBay. She’s sold almost 1,000 items over the last five years which gives her perks like reduced fees and increased exposure. Read her amazing tips here and good luck selling!
