Forget about crypto, If there’s one thing that’s proven to be profitable in recent years it’s selling used panties. Hence the emergence of so many used underwear marketplaces. With all jokes aside, many savvy sellers have been able to create an income from listing their lovingly used underwear on the internet for the highest bidder to claim. For the benefit of both the buyers and the sellers, today we are going to be reviewing Pantydeal and seeing what makes them one of the largest used underwear distributors.
As the name might explain Pantydeal are a used underwear marketplace that has been around since 2012. Suggesting that they’ve got a good few years of experience in this industry. They claim to have over a million buyers and sellers with over $100,000 worth of used panty transactions being made every month. We’re not sure how they calculated this as transactions take place off the site, but regardless, there’s money to be made.
Like most of the websites in this industry, Pantydeal is advertised as a used underwear marketplace but offers additional services like text chatting that make it an all-around adult entertainment website.
Signing up to Pantydeal is completely free, but if you wish to sell to their audience you’ll have to pay a monthly fee of $17.33. The fee is understandable as they are providing you with the audience more or less. The only downside to casting your used panties into the mishmash of one million sellers is that it’s very saturated. Being involved in a small pool of sellers to a big audience of buyers works in the favour of the seller, supply and demand 101. But Pantydeal does claim to have one million buyers to match their large base of sellers which means that people are making sales.
Once you have signed up as a seller they will prompt you to complete your profile by asking you what services you’re willing to provide; Used panties, videos, webcam chats etc. From here it’s up to you to run wild and update your profile filling out information about yourself, profile pictures, hobbies you name it. Of course, you aren’t encouraged to give any information that is too personal, simply your age and the country that you live in. For those first timers or people who are very protective about their data, there is an option to make your profile private so that only friends may view it.
One of the main things that set Pantydeal apart from other used underwear marketplaces is the fact that sales all take place outside of the website. Think of Pantydeal as more of a directory than a direct distributor. They provide a platform to put you in contact with people willing to sell their used underwear and how you conduct your business is totally up to you. Most people opt for payment methods suitable for sex workers like direct transfers and Amazon Gift Cards in order to protect themselves against scammers.
Using popular payment processors like PayPal, Venmo and CashApp can lead to bans and frozen accounts with money being withheld as soliciting adult activity go against their terms of service. We advise avoiding using these payment methods wherever possible due to this.
Despite sounding like the wild west of panty selling the company does take precautions such as phone number, photo and video verification to make sure they are real. Profiles that have passed said verifications will earn a badge on their profile to tell you that they are authentic.
A good thing about the Pantydeal business model is that they are not restricted by on-site functionality. Every service that they allow sellers on the site to advertise, has to be provided by their own external means. Essentially removing a lot of the headache of server costs and all the other techy stuff. Not to mention removing their responsibility for reimbursements due to any complications during transactions.
This does still have its benefits for the sellers as they don’t have to pay any commissions from their earnings to Pantydeal. Whatever models earn is entirely theirs. So, let’s get into the meat and potatoes of what they advertise.
Despite used underwear being the main sellers on the site, sexy videos come in at a close second. Models can upload videos ranging from short snappy clips to full-length films of themselves getting up to no good. Typically charges are done by the minute so it can be in your best interests to keep it brief to entice first time buyers. But if you’ve got an audience looking for longer videos then take your time!
In order to sell videos on Pantydeal, you’ll have to start by making your videos private on your profile meaning they can only be accessed by request. Next, when buyers request to have access to your videos you can negotiate the external charges and payment. How you sell your videos is entirely up to you. Some models like to sell individual videos and charge like this while others will sell in bundles of a collection they recorded. Usually, the method that incurs the highest rates is buying an entire drive.
Models upload images to the secure Pantydeal cloud drive where they can set high prices for those who want to take a look, which can significantly boost income. So long as you're comfortable with everything you’re recording and uploading, go crazy!
Similar to how selling videos works, models can create and upload collections to which buyers will request access and so on. But one of the more lucrative ways that models have been selling pictures in recent times is as an accompaniment to their used panty sales. Sellers on the site will upload a steamy photoshoot collection wearing the panties that they wish to sell. A lot of the time buyers love to see proof of underwear being worn to add to the fantasy. So what better way to upsell them on a picture.
Pictures can be sold as a standalone thing but it usually requires a lot more promotion and sneak peeks in order to spark the interest of buyers. The good news is that you can still remain completely anonymous while taking nude pictures. These shots can focus on a particular body part or item of clothing, so you’re all good from the neck down. Also, images don’t really need to be of professional quality. Most smartphone cameras nowadays can certainly do the trick, which adds to the whole amateur overtone of the fetish.
Unlike other platforms, Pantydeal does not provide a camming service and therefore everything will have to be done externally. However, you can advertise the service here which means you can still acquire customers. Because you’ll be doing this without the protection of another company, here are a few camming precautions you can take. Make sure you are using an appropriate payment method that supports sex workers. Scammers prey on naive camgirls to try and get a free show so don’t give them that satisfaction.
Secondly, don’t set up a call with anyone you aren’t comfortable with. It’s your body and you are under no obligation to work with anyone that makes you feel uncomfortable. Some models that do cam shows find video calling quite overwhelming at first so only allow their viewers to respond via chat messages with their camera off. Eventually, as your confidence begins to grow and you start having more fun you can amp things up a bit and charge higher rates.
On the topic of payment, camming/private calls are usually charged on a minute basis but as it is all done externally you have the freedom to negotiate and be your own boss. With camming in particular you get a lot of repeat customers so keep them wanting more.
If you fancy yourself as a bit of a wordsmith then you can certainly make money advertising the service of sexting on your profile. Buyers will reach out requesting a sexting session which is always good, not so clean fun. Sexting is usually paid per text so it’s important to keep the texting sessions exciting.
It can be difficult maintaining a text conversation about sex so try to get an idea of their fantasies. Consider roleplaying or taking on a persona that fits their deepest desires.
Obviously, it was going to come to this at some point. Selling used underwear is the primary use of Pantydeal but it's not always the same garments being sold. Models have the freedom to list and sell socks, stockings, shoes, gym wear and all sorts of lingerie. Sometimes we need to play to our strengths in order to create a sexy fantasy surrounding our lifestyle. If you’re a person super into fitness and it shows, consider selling some of your used gym clothes; you'd be surprised how sought after sweaty gym wear can be.
If you’ve got nice feet and you ain’t afraid to show it then why not try selling some high heels you’ve worn for those with a foot fetish. It will require some nice pictures of you modelling them but at least you won’t have to worry about blinking when the flash goes off.
Users typically sell their underwear on the site by advertising it with a picture and a brief bio or description about the piece. Models can display the asking price for their undergarments which are usually pretty non-negotiable but you never know. Buyers can enquire about the piece in a chat where payment, shipping and all other logistical issues can be sorted out.
This is what makes Pantydeal a little more of a community than most sites. Usually used underwear sites give sellers limited options on how to promote their items on the site. Many will offer paid advertising solutions to appear on the front page or as some form of VIP seller but this can sometimes prove to not be profitable for a newbie. However, on Pantydeal sellers can reach out to buyers via direct messages to get chatting and entice them into a sale.
Most buyers love this opportunity to receive attention from some of their favourite models all the while sellers can promote their store to customers directly. On the seller dashboard, it gives users the ability to see which buyers are online so you don't waste time targeting spam or inactive accounts.
We just think it’s nice that they give sellers the option to actively sell their items, proving that your sexy messaging strategies can turn over a profit if you’re willing to put in the work. One of the downsides to this messaging feature being free is you will get a lot of time wasters looking to get some free entertainment out of it, so try not to get too frustrated.
This is always the question on everyone's mind when they sign up for an adult entertainment website. But you’ll be pleased to know that selling used underwear is one of the more lucrative routes that you can take in the field of sex work. You can remain completely anonymous and run the business right from the comfort of your own home, plus you get paid for masturbating so I can’t really think of a better adult side hustle.
However, how much individuals on the site make tends to vary. The average pair of panties on the site is around 20-40 dollars but there are of course items being sold for more or less than this. It’s difficult to calculate an average salary for sellers as there are so many factors to consider. For one, the cost of each pair of underwear has to be deducted which varies from person to person. Sellers offer lots of additional features and supplementary pictures to increase the price of each sale. Furthermore, custom requests and fetish buyers are willing to pay more for different items.
The take-home point here is that there is certainly money to be made but it’s just like entering any other industry you’ll have to do a bit of learning on the job. Lucky for you we’ve decided to throw in a few pro tips to consider when getting started as a seller.
If you’re new to selling used panties altogether then it might be an idea to heed some advice from the pros to maximise your chances of making successful sales.
Although we mentioned that the price of panties can vary massively there are certainly some do’s and don’ts when it comes to selling your underwear. Selling your items for too low is a big no-no. Really low prices usually suggest low quality which is definitely not something that buyers want to see if they’re buying used underwear. So, ironically this will turn buyers away. Also dropping your price point so low is bad for business as undercutting the competition by so much lowers the average value of used underwear.
Listing your panties for too much can also be problematic. It’s easy to be enticed by the stories of users selling underwear for thousands of dollars, but there is usually some sort of novelty attached to these sales. These sellers are typically fulfilling some form of custom or fetish related order, or have sparked the interest of a very keen and wealthy buyer. While it is possible for these sales to happen there’s a good chance that you’ll struggle to sell these items.
While it’s entirely up to you whether you want to remain anonymous by face we always recommend that you keep things like government names and personal contact information confidential. An alias or sexy username has also been shown to improve branding, notoriety and hence sales so it can work in your favour more than you think.
For models offering additional services like live calls, sexting and various different intimate experiences it’s essential that you use a burner phone, and make separate social media and communication app accounts.
While we’d like to think that everyone in the adult space acts with integrity and respect we have to protect ourselves from those who do not play by these rules. Hence for sellers, we always recommend using a PO Box to remain completely off the grid when sending and receiving items. We strongly advise against giving out home addresses.
Appealing to a fetish audience can be one of the best ways to find a niche and crank up the price on those sales. Seeing as you can contact your buyers on Pantydeal don’t be afraid to ask what they’re into and propose a custom offer. If someone is a lover of lace or used gym clothes cater it towards their needs. The chances are, buyers will be willing to spare a pretty penny for a particular pair of your panties, try saying that five times fast.
Most fetishes or custom offers will want proof of the service, usually in the form of images or videos. So factor this into your pricing or potentially offer it as an additional cost.
A great way to build trust between you and your potential buyers is to put some effort into making your profile look as full and pretty as possible. Given that sales take place outside of the site there is a higher chance of scammers on Pantydeal so buyers can be more sceptical here than on other sites. An empty profile with nothing but a display picture and a couple of pairs of panties could be whipped up by any old con artist looking to make a quick buck so it’s important to make your profile as legitimate as possible.
To do this we recommend having a detailed sexy bio giving a bit of information on your sexual interests and fantasies. Don’t be afraid to talk about yourself in a non-sexual sense as well. Explain some of your hobbies and interests outside of the adult space as this can help buyers to feel like they know you and establish more trust.
Adding as many images and listing as many products as you can, will give the impression that you take this seriously and are no stranger to selling your used underwear. Buyers tend to take a liking to this level of professionalism as it assures them that they will receive what has been advertised.
Finally, if you’ve got some money to spare then consider purchasing a premium membership to become a VIP Seller. Once you become a VIP Seller you will appear in the verified seller's section and acquire a badge that can be seen on your profile letting everyone know. Users on the site recognise this as a seal of trust. Why would you be willing to pay for the privileges of membership unless you were a dedicated user?
We hope that you’ve learned a lot more about Pantydeal and can add one more avenue for revenue on your used panty escapades. See you soon!
