Buying vs Selling
Well, ThredUp is a really great place to buy things. Unfortunately, it is a very anti-climactic place to sell things. They definitely capitalize on any potential profit. They use sliding scales to pay you a percentage of the value that they list it at up front and only if your item is under $60. Above $60 you get a higher percentage, and the percentage comes from what it actually sells at, and not what they decide it's worth. I sent in 2 very large bags of some very nice stuff, some NWTs; they took several of the pieces, and I made a net of $11, after paying the $12 to have the unused items returned to me. On average, i only made a few dollars per item, and when I say a few dollars, I mean under five. Initially, I was going to sell my items at local consignment store in my town, but they all told me that their biggest competitor was the Internet, and my best chance to sell things would be over the Internet. In retrospect, had I used a local consignment store, they may have only given me a few dollars per piece, but they would've accepted them all. I would counsel everybody to pay the $12 to have things returned, as you may only get a few dollars for an entire bag. So unless you're going to sell a pair of Milano Blahniks, get prepared to not make money. Having said that, it's great place to buy things; I got 14 articles of clothing for under $200, which was great. Definitely a buyers market.
Increased pricing incorrect colors but cheaper than the mall
Overall the upgrade to the app has been great. It's much easier to find clothes. I've had issue after issue when I purchase something red. The item is always orange not red. So don't buy anything red! They don't pay anything for your clothes. I was considering selling some to them but noticed they had just purchased some shirts in a brand I have and only pay 25-50 cents (USA) for the shirts. I'd rather donate my clothes then sell them for such an insulting price. Their pricing overall has increased by several dollars over the past year. They pay too little for your clothes and charge you more for the ones you buy. They are pretty close to new clothing prices in some brands so keep an eye on that. The return shipping is ridiculous. It's $9 to ship one item back!
Ok for buying, not for selling
I have sent several polka dot bags back to ThredUp. The process is easy, but it takes a LONG time for them to process your bag. Also, check out their commission structure because most things on the site sell for <$20 and that means the seller made about $2.25 for their item. You can use that as credit to shop or cash out to PayPal after 2 weeks.
One other warning- I sent in 2 pairs of shoes that had never been worn and they listed both as having a minor flaw- really confusing because I had never worn them (even in my house). Bottom line I would say the process of ordering the bag and adding your items in in very easy but don't expect to make any money selling your clothes!
