Kids grow really fast, but their clothes don’t. Are your closets filled with your kids’ clothes that were never worn or have been rarely worn? Are you willing to shop for your kids’ new sizes? We introduce you to Totspot, the resale shopping app for kids’ clothes. Totspot was founded by Vijay Ramani and Vikrant Ramteke. “We have kids! We know kids grow but clothes don’t” says Samantha Fein, VP Marketing when we asked her how they arrived at this idea. She adds, “We’re a small group of passionate moms and dads who believe that there should be a place for parents to buy and sell their kids’ clothes — hassle free.”
Totspot is America’s fastest growing kids’ shop online, powered by its parent-to-parent marketplace. The resale shopping platform publishes thousands of new items daily from top brands including Burberry, Juicy Kids, Janie & Jack, Nike, UGG, GAP Kids and more. The app is available on iPhone and Android. Totspot has an easy-to-use interface, beautiful UI and offers an easy checkout process. The goal is to offer the “easiest possible way to shop, save and sell”.
Totspot buyers purchase resale kids’ clothes for up to 80% off retail. While Totspot offers its sellers 80% of all commissions made, it keeps 20% from each transaction. The sellers can use the money they make to shop for their kids’ new styles and sizes.
Ask Samantha on the expansion plans, she says, “We’re growing as fast as our kids are! Right now we’re testing various channels and opportunities. Next is more growth and exploration into what our consumers want to buy and sell. Listening to our buyers and sellers’ wants and needs and suggestions are always key indicators for where we should grow, expand and build.”
Totspot users are mostly mothers with newborns or kids under 10. Despite being fashion savvy, they usually belong to suburbs near major metropolises like New York, Chicago, L.A., SF Bay Area and Dallas.
Samantha considers eBay as “the big behemoth in resale clothing” and Totspot’s main competitor. However, she adds “Hopefully, we’re a little less intimidating and lot more fun to use.”.
Totspot offers 20% off on each item for StartupDope readers. Use promocode “MAMALOVE” to avail the discount.
