The Good

  • Variety of Clothing
  • Top Brands
  • Daily Deals
  • Money-Back Guarantee

Variety of Clothing

When it comes to clothing on eBay, there is no shortage of options. 

Suppose you’re searching through the Women’s Clothing category. In that case, you can choose items from various categories such as activewear, coats, jackets, vests, dresses, jeans, intimates and sleep, jumpsuits and rompers, leggings, pants, suits and suit separates, swimwear, and more. 

Shoppers can alter their search to include special sizes such as juniors, petite, plus, and maternity. 

The Men’s Clothing category is similar; shoppers can easily search for shirts, men’s pants, hoodies and sweatshirts, activewear, suits, swimwear, and more. If needed, the men’s category includes extended sizes. 

eBay also sells clothing items for babies, children, and teens. 

Top Brands

eBay sells clothing from a variety of name-brand stores, including the following:

  • Anthropologie
  • Banana Republic
  • Free People
  • J. Crew
  • Lululemon
  • Supreme
  • Adidas
  • The North Face
  • Gymboree
  • Carter’s
  • Matilda Jane
  • Justice
  • Under Armour

Daily Deals

The Daily Deals section is a great place to be if you’re looking to save. By clicking on the “Fashion” tab, shoppers will be shown clothing items that are discounted. 

eBay includes a “Spotlight Deal,” which is an item featured for its discounted price. There are “Trending Deals,” which show popular items that are currently on sale. 

Just keep in mind that the Daily Deals inventory is consistently rotating — meaning items are frequently being switched out or replaced. It’s a great choice if you aren’t picky about the product and are ready to purchase right away. It’s not the best choice if you want some time to think about the purchase or are waiting for a paycheck to come in. 

Money-Back Guarantee

eBay offers a Money-Back Guarantee that applies to virtually everything on the site. The guarantee is free and covers your purchase price plus original shipping on eligible purchases. However, you do need to follow the specific steps eBay gives to qualify for this guarantee. 

eBay’s website states, “In order to be protected by eBay Money Back Guarantee, certain payment methods must be used and all eligibility requirements and deadlines must be met. Certain transactions and article types such as vehicles, real estate, business sales & domains, digital content, industrial equipment, or vouchers are not covered. For full terms and conditions, read our eBay Money Back Guarantee policy.”

While certain conditions need to be met to qualify for the money-back guarantee, we appreciate eBay offering this extra bit of protection to its customers.

The Bad

  • Return Policy
  • Item Quality

Return Policy

Returning a clothing item to eBay isn’t as simple as one would hope. Because the site works with thousands of different sellers, you might be able to return some things and not others. This means that you’ll need to be extra diligent about checking each seller’s return policy before making a purchase.

You’ll need to make a note of shipping deadlines, as well as whether an item can be returned for a refund, replacement, or exchange. 

Item Quality

Several customer reviews left on BestCompany.com have mentioned that the quality of clothing items isn’t always what they expected — and most of the time, not in a good way. Reviews have noted that some items have had stains on them, feel cheaply made, didn’t look the same as what was shown online, or even that the seller  sent the wrong item.  

However, others have stated that the clothing they received was in good condition, and they would purchase from eBay again. 

Overall, buying clothes from eBay may be a bit of a gamble. We recommend always seeing who the item is being sold by and checking out their Seller Feedback Rating. The Seller Feedback is a great way to see if other shoppers have received their items, what kind of condition they were in, and whether the seller is trustworthy.

The Bottom Line

While few people think of shopping for their clothing on eBay, this online e-commerce juggernaut is a decent option. You'll find plenty of clothing items for sale from hundreds of different brands, and generally, you can get them at a discounted price.

The Daily Deals section is another excellent way to save some money, as long as you’re not too picky about the brand and are ready to buy right away. 

However, shopping for clothes on eBay does have a few drawbacks. First, you’ll need to be diligent about checking the return policy for each item of clothing. Some sellers will accept returns; others won’t. Second, the clothing quality can be a bit of a mixed bag. Reviewers have mentioned that not all the clothing they received is up to par, and they were unhappy with the purchase. Other shoppers have had no problem with the items they’ve received.

Ebay is an industry disruptor in a great way. They have channelled home shopping for greater selection, pricing, and service. They offer great buying safety in an internet full of pitfalls. Their site is easy to use, safe for money transactions and even have great buyer protections. Ebay is simply leading the pack!

OMG who doesn't love eBay! If I'm looking for something unusual that I would look all over town for, I check eBay and there it is. Sometimes shipping can take a while but they are usually cheaper than Amazon for the exact same product. I use PayPal to pay for my items with a money back if not satisfied guaranteed. I rarely have to send things back, but when I do it's been very easy. Although you will have to pay for return shipping. Life long buyer and sometimes seller on eBay.

I ordered a dirt biking set including pants, shirt, clothes, and boots. For my brother and I was worried about sizing not going to fit him right but I chose the size he said and the size that was described the best on the site and when my Order came it was perfect! The customer service and contact I talked to was super helpful. The December was super fast It didn’t take long for it to be shipped to me!

When I want some clothing that's more expensive I will search ebay just to compare and see if I can find something worth the risk for the price and quality. It takes a while to shop around on Ebay for clothing but I have never had a problem with a purchase. The quality and descriptions are correct and not fake.

We have purchased a number of things over the years from Ebay. They offer just about everything someone might need at very good prices. We like the fact that both new and used items can be found so pricing can be compared. The billing process is safe and delivery is as advertised. A great site that has saved us a lot of money!

I like to use Ebay to purchase really unique clothing for a fraction of the cost. They also have a great guarantee on the product that you buy. So if it isn't exactly like it was described on the website, they give you back your money. Love that they do that!!!

I love the variety of items I can find on Ebay, especially hard-to-find items. I've been able to find things I was looking for on eBay when I couldn't find them anywhere else. I also appreciate their rating system so I can see if I'm buying from a reputable seller.

I recently bought a swimsuit off of eBay for one of my vacations this summer. I searched around and found the listing for the most affordable price for that particular item. I had to be careful and look at the size charts because some of the sizes are very different from the normal US sizes.

It feels like Ebay has really changed over the years. 15 years ago, it was mostly people selling their stuff, and that slowly changed to now where it feels like it is mostly people doing it as a business. What this means is that you used to be able to find some great deals, but now that is harder to accomplish. I will say that I love Ebay for the fact that you can buy items that are no longer sold in stores, like your favorite moisturizer, or an out of production duvet cover from Pottery Barn. For that reason I will continue to use them.

I LOVE EBAY. If you are patient and know how to find a deal, you can score! We got a Patagonia Better Sweater for my wife for much cheaper than other major retailers, and brand new. Make sure to find a seller that has sold to many people, has high reviews, and offers returns.

You can find about any clothing item you want on Ebay, but the sellers are varied and as such so is the quality. Many sellers are based in China, so make sure to check the shipping time frame and sizing chart when purchasing.

eBay has gotten more unreliable over the last few years.

So why would they still be online?

Both times that I purchased something from Ebay, I never received the item. Individual sellers on this site make it shady.
