Definitely deflated for me!
I sold 4 items out of 15 but there is no $$ in my account. Overall, my selling experience was good, but only bc I didn’t have much invested in the clothes to begin with since I am a garage sale shopper. thredUP encourages everyone with a Clean Out Kit to send timely and seasonal clothes their way. /Producer (Skia/PDF m84) So although I like this site as a buyer, I do not recommend it as a seller. Haven’t heard of thredUp?
That is SO good to know about! A HUGE THANKS to You and ALL of the great and informative women who responded back and forth to your Blog, I just saved a BUNCH of hard-earned money, hours of useless preparation, endless searches for non-existent answers, and unsuccessful searching for my “unacceptable” items! Most do not want to and want an immediate result.
ANY SUGGESTIONS that don’t include me doing the photos/postings=I am moving and that’s not an option. 3 0 obj endobj

After some of my items expired from my listing account and I did not reclaim them, the items remained listed by ThredUP for them to sell and take all the profit. But I did send an email to support with a question about the Return Assurance process, and they haven’t even responded yet. Free up space in your closet by filling your kit with gently used items you no longer wear, need, or love. It took 4 months, but the purse sold and I got $35 which was impressive considering I had tried selling it on a local swap and no one even wanted it for $5! I actually had these photos taken last July while we were still living in the condo because I wanted to feature thredUP as a unique website that helps you earn a little unexpected cash (the thought of which greatly appealed to my personal finances). on Poshmark. Unless you listed 100’s and 100’s of items, I highly doubt you lost money listing. I am super addicted to shopping on thredup, but have been too afraid to try selling. That said, they have sent frequent emails stating the processing time has gotten so much quicker this year, so I will find out what that means. Nothing would prevent them from selling “donated” items in their retail locations either. Grab a coffee and stay a while. stream An item listed as a tank top was actually pajamas; not worth the return fees, of course. They will email ypu a shipping label. A lot easier process, I think! I tried to talk to a supervisor in the chat on the app and he basically just sent me “clothes that meet the condition, style, and brand requirements are not guaranteed to be accepted” and then closed the conversation so I couldn’t reply. << Help please. Is it just easier to try to list them on Instagram?
that’s only if you want your kit to be processed within a week. Your email address will not be published. >> Sellers can now opt in to receive a small upfront payout for each item but prices and upfront offers have decreased with every of my processed bag.
I never heard from them.
It looks like if you send in high end designer items they pay 55% -80% and up if the item is priced $100.00 – $300. I also sent back stuff that I bought from Thredup and when I tried them at home didn’t like, but did not send them back. Having problems using a screen reader on this website? >> I totally agree! (Or at least that’s what they say.)
Each garment in the list is linked so you can track it’s sale on the site. and a tiny bit more about their SELLERS who are the entire reason they exist and be a much more wholesome company. For me this often includes clothes I’ve purchased from Stitch Fix, items that still have a tag, or popular brands like Kate Spade, J Crew, Gap, or Kendra Scott.
then you pay 16.00. I have used Thredup since August 2014 and have sent in 13 bags and have averaged $58/bag. If you do not like the $4.90 they offer you when the tag states $158 and was bought 1 month ago – you are not able to ask them to send it back or give you a higher pay out for it.
11 0 obj thredUP decided to keep 6 of the 9 items I shipped in my Clean Out Kit and list them online. If you do not reclaim an accepted item, the item becomes property of thredUP. I finally decided it was best to just lay all the information out there and let you decide for yourself whether or not thredUP is the best route for your gently used clothes. I didn’t even have to pay the 10.00 dollars when I did it! Feel free to send them to me, instead, I’ve made very good returns selling thrifted items. Most people, I’m sure choose not to receive their items back due to added cost. /Type /Annot
I had a Coach bag in one, with a tiny scuff on one side, apparently they didn’t accept it, so I am so glad I paid Return Assurance for that! ^_^. Wondering if you’ve heard of these Warehouse Sales and how that has helped selling items??
It definitely isn’t seller friendly. And Thredup claimed that you can earn 5%-90% of the listed price. In the past, I would always have a bag on hand and filled it over time. /StructParents 2
Some Christopher & Banks and Kohl’s items also sold well, but for very low prices; I got 40c for a sweater, $2.59 for a dress. /XObject << And that you remained neutral, letting us readers make our own decision about the company. >> This is the area that seems to be the way to go.a 90-125 priced Luxe item pays 65-70% 200-299 paid 80%.
endobj Thank you. (I later saw a bunch of the clothes I sent on their website, including a unique looking sweater that wasn’t listed on the site before I sent it). It seems to me that Threadup’s business model is potentially proplematic, without more transparency to it’s sellers.
Also, it’s $16 dollars, now, for it to be processed within a week and another $10.99 IF you want your items back if they don’t accept it. They state that they have donated $79,351 dollars in 2018 this way, which means nearly 16,000 people in 2018 just gave them their clothes. The addition of the fee means I’ll only get $10/bag (and these are FULL bags). /Resources <<
>> /Subtype /Link They refer to their earnings as nominal but that’s kind of a vague word, don’t you think? Maybe you have an even better tip to turn your gently used clothes into cold, hard cash. They keep $1 + a percentage. Call (888) 868-0186 for help. But, yeah, my seller bags have generally had the fee waived, so I don’t know if I’d actually pay to send things over. I’m looking at almost 2 months that they have had my bag and not processed it. Not much has changed since you posted this. It’s free and seriously easy to clean out your closet with thredUP. Hi Cheryl!
When I shipped my own Clean Out Bag last summer, I shipped my bag sometime in July, but thredUP never contacted to let me know it was received. endobj I ordered a clean out bag last June and it took months to arrive in the fall, and then they tried to charge me the fee that went into effect around August! Anything they do except that is priced over $300.00 they pay 90% commission on. I hope you see my postings really soon! The processing time is also lengthy, and even when I account for 6 weeks I’ve often gotten a delayed processing message, so what was in season when I sent (even accounting for 6 weeks) sometimes isn’t when it finally is processed, which is frustrating. In my experience, it can sometimes take even longer.
I also can’t figure out their quality expectations: some of the items they flagged as too worn had been washed once on gentle.
Some items sold quickly, like Dress Barn and White House Black Market brands; I got just under 50% of the sale price for those. Which means that the hypothetical $50 blouse in my closet will get an even lower payout than I initially anticipated. That means I got less than $1 per item. Per piece is was certainly not a lot, but it added up and it was no skin off my back. It is really frustrating, isn’t it? Since I have a lot of Kate Spade, Michael Kors, and Coach I’m thinking this is the way to go. I did well on 1st bag with high end items, so I sent in a 2nd bag. /X16 26 0 R I added up the value of the five garments that had sold and thredUP earned $99.95 for those items (with one dress yet to sell). Lesson learned! I think I’m remembering this correctly, but like I said, it was a while ago. I think something is very crooked how they do business. 6 0 obj I was so s sorry that I sent what I did. And I only send completely full bags. I often find items with tags still on it for mostly decent deals. If you’re like me and find yourself with more clothes in your closet and dresser than you actually need, you might be looking to cash in some of those higher-value items and thredUP might be one way to go.
If you have more than just clothes that you are looking to clear out or you want a more complete list of options to turn your gently used items into cash, this blog post about the money hiding in your closet may be just for you! Lilly,
Oh gosh, I am so glad I found your blog! High value items – this includes new and like-new items from a known (and higher priced) brand or designer. That is so interesting about ThredUp Luxe. Then it’s sent to be itemized, and 9 times out of 10, the system will reject it. A few random fact, see photos of what we donated in this blog post, http://referral.swap.com/339457702340075520, How We Paid Cash for a New Car (and How You Can Too), The Time We Forgot to Balance our Checkbook, Make Budgeting your New Year’s Resolution, Ringing in the Holidays with a Huge Home Expense. A nerd and a perfectionist fall in love. They apparently are also starting to except MENS items.

I’d sold with them before, and was happy with the service.
I too had a less than happy experience with thread up and wont be doing it again. And I’m sorry to hear that you had a frustrating experience on their website. So sorry you lost out so badly but thanks for warning me! Also the $10 you spent up front means you made a net profit of $27.40.
