Most used clothing is exported to developing countries, especially LDCs. In 2017, sub-Saharan African countries imported 23.8% of the global used clothing trade, far exceeding other regions.
An important factor behind the boom in the used clothing trade is the import demand for used clothing by some of the world's least developed countries. For example, the East African Economic Community countries, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda are Africa's largest import markets for used clothing. Imported used clothing is cheaper and of better quality than new clothing from local clothing factories. In Rwanda, the price of used clothes is usually only one-fifth of the price of new locally-made clothes.

In recent years, the huge profits brought by the acquisition of second-hand clothing have pushed this "low-key" industry from behind the scenes to the front. According to statistics in March 2019, the purchase price of second-hand clothing per ton ranges from 600 yuan to 2,800 yuan. First-hand sellers "sell" second-hand clothes at a price of 0 to 0.3 yuan. The huge acquisition spread in the middle is enviable.
Consumers are not ready to buy at full price, and there are actually many cheaper ways to find the high-quality items they want. The following are several popular second-hand goods resale platforms abroad: eBay, OfferUp, Poshmark, Tradesy, Chairish

1. Whether there is a professional team in China or the destination Country
Some overseas warehouses are only responsible for the part after overseas warehousing. Once problems occur、 the goods are already overseas、 which is often difficult to deal with. The overseas warehouse service with a domestic professional team will be standardized before the goods are sent to the overseas warehouse. Overseas warehouse opening by HATO can provide cross-border e-commerce sellers with one-stop import and export customs clearance services、 good customs clearance qualifications、 mature customs clearance experience、 fast and efficient、 to maximize the avoidance of overseas problems、 and also to maximize the avoidance of overseas additional costs.
2. Whether the warehouse provides insurance
In recent years、 some overseas warehouses have become more and more standardized. In order to ensure the interests of sellers、 they have begun to provide various types of insurance、 cargo damage insurance、 loss of parts insurance、 delay insurance and other insurance against cross-border e-commerce pain points. The seller has always been in a weak position. Once there is a problem in the warehouse、 these insurances allow the seller to obtain reasonable claims without losing money.
3. Scale and hardware facilities
It is very easy to understand、 a small overseas warehouse has relatively poor stability、 and an overseas warehouse company with a scale of 5K square meters or even tens of thousands of square meters can hardly close down or disappear overnight. The same is true for the hardware facilities. The perfect hardware facilities mean that the overseas warehouse can provide more efficient and mature services.
