Guest blog: Charity retail is going digital, let Zipsale show you how

Many of you will know the hard work that goes into “getting your name out there” online. Trying to increase brand visibility and site traffic is no easy feat, especially if having an open physical store is not available to you. The Covid-19 pandemic has demonstrated how many consumers are switching to shopping in a purely digital way and how many businesses need to increase their online presence to accommodate this. Often, such a task can require a large budget, aggressive PR strategies and exponential advertising. Zipsale is on a mission to change that.

With big platforms such as eBay, Shpock, Gumtree as well as social media giants like Facebook Marketplace and Instagram being a popular option for reselling, it is time to modernise and streamline our approach. Zipsale is a solution for every resale fashion shop owner and has seen an increased buying rate of 5x more compared to traditional methods. By creating a user-friendly platform for even the most novice of technology users, Zipsale allows for easy listings, helpful guides and support on hand 24/7 to ensure your items are being seen by many. 

In understanding the often overwhelming nature of listing items, creating websites, calculating shipping costs and managing inventory, Zipsale has answers to these all-important sales aspects. Being a start-up, Zipsale has lots of exciting features planned and is set to be the most effective solution for charity retail. Ever thought about going global but unaware of just how? Zipsale also breaks down the language barrier by expanding your products to global markets, if you so wish. With times changing and more buyers choosing to purchase resale items, it is also vital that retailers understand their buyer’s shopping habits. There is little reason why online expansion for charity retail should be a daunting task but we understand that for many resale fashion retailers, it can be. Allow Zipsale to take the stress out of it all and platform your brand to a host of new customers easily and effectively.
