Hello,
My father just recently passed away and I'm trying to figure out how to sell some of the new items I purchased for him that he didn't get a chance to wear. My problem is because they were gifts, I tore off the barcode info and having a hard time finding the same products online since I bought them a year ago. They are all ties which includes a pocket square. I was able to find one of them on amazon but the listing does not include the pocket square...just the same tie. Should I then create a new listing just to include that additional pocket square? And if so, am I able to use that same ASIN# from the tie I found even if a pocket square will be included since I can't find that same combination tie and square online? Or can I use that same listing, but maybe I could add the pocket square in the package anyways as a freebie? I'm trying to avoid having to purchase a GTIN numbers for them if possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

You need to list this kind of item elsewhere.
Since you have torn off any labels on these they would have to be sold as used and Amazon will not let you list used clothing.

Sorry for your loss, may he rest in peace.

As to your question... I think you are looking for Ebay.

Used clothing can't be sold on Amazon. And yes they are used if they just sat in his closet.

You do NOT sell them on Amazon

Amazon is NOT the venue for those items.

FB Marketplace, the Bay or CL, but NOT here

I actually would not sell them here. I would use a different website for it.

Since the tags are gone these are considered used. I do not think that Amazon allows used clothing to be sold here.

I could be wrong about this of course. I am not overtly familiar with clothing.

The items are used not new so they cant be sold on Amazon.....even if they were new you need approval to sell those types of items.

Best to try the bay or donate them

It's not new, because the buyer would not be the first purchaser of the item.

You cannot sell them on Amazon. No tags equals used, regardless of whether he used them. Used clothing is not permitted on Amazon.

Sorry - your issue was already answered. I have to figure out how to set my sort filter to default to "earliest response," not most helpful. ugh.

One of the items I did not tear off the sticker so it is new. I won't sell the other ones though but can you advise on the question I asked for the one I can sell?
