There's a bit of a learning curve to thred up. I hsve a love hate relationship with them lol. They do have great customer service and if you have a specific question on why an item wasn't accepted just ask. They'll look into it and either give you credit for it or explain why it wasn't accepted. But yes, things need to be basically perfect for them to accept.

Yes. A Hannah Andersson dress I bought DD had a hole in a seam and I sent them a pic and they gave me full refund right away. So, I'd buy again, esp now since they revised the shipping prices, but I'll be cautious selling.

i know, they don't make sense. i think it is b/c they have so many people pricing/listing that there is no continuity.

ex. cornelloki dress $3.99 but a vintage 90's garish gymbo romper $12.99

I also think their items are fairly overpriced (especially for what they buy for). I feel like I can buy the same brands new for what they are listing them used. (However, I am a bargain shopper and buy ahead on great sales). I've only sold to them once but it left such a sour taste in my mouth I won't recommend them and will only use them again after I have tried every other option.

I agree with this I have sent in 2 stuffed bags. The first one was "damaged" and items were missing from the bag. I got $25 for that bag. The next bag was stuffed too. I did send a few iffy things but the rest were like new items. They only accepted half and got $30 from that bag. I have received items from them that were not in like new condition. I have also seen out dated items for sale. I was told my items were missing tags or pajamas/underwear. I know for a fact none of my items were missing tags and I did not send pajamas.
I also feel the prices are too high for some things. I get most of my stuff new on sale combined with coupons/rewards cards.

Re: Has anyone sold to Thred Up?

Maybe it's because I just donate or give away all my son's clothes, but I'd be thrilled to get $30 credit to get him something he actually needs. I guess if I was selling outright and made better money it wouldn't be worth it, but I've had NO luck trying to sell locally so everything just ends up handed down or donated. So it sounds like I just need to be aware that they may not take things. I'll try starting small and see what they take then.

I feel the same. I figured, I was just going to donate the stuff anyway to get it out of my hair if it didn't sell locally (and a lot of times it doesn't), so, if I can get even $10 toward something my kids need, that's good.

Re: Has anyone sold to Thred Up?

I sent a huge bag of clothes ...I got $14. I washed everything that was used. I checked it all. I sent several new with tags items that my son outgrew & a few new without tags. I got paid for 1 new item! Most had been listed once on ebay. I was being lazy & didn't relist. I would not sell to them again unless I was going to donate the items anyway.

Re: Has anyone sold to Thred Up?

I didn't get a chance to read all of the replies yet, but mamas I hope some of you might consider selling your children's clothes here on DS! I realize that might be because I had a very bad experience with Thread UP in which I got a box full of clothing that smelled very moldy and even after multiple bleach washes, hanging outside, etc. etc. it still stunk and was not usable. They were like "Sorry, but it happens" anyway, I guess they've maybe changed their way of doing business now but the customer service was really non-existant in my case and it left a bad taste in my mouth about them. kwim?

Lots of mamas here would love to buy or trade for your nice or new or nwt kid clothing items! Me for one!

Re: Has anyone sold to Thred Up?

I actually listed a bunch of stuff on here last year, NWTs adn NIB boots and didn't get a single nibble. I'm still debating if it's worth sending the NIB boots to them since they are $50 boots I am not going to donate them or be happy with $5 or $10 so I may try and list them again. But stuff I'm just going to donate anyway, might as well try right?

Re: Has anyone sold to Thred Up?

I have heard so many complaints about selling there that it made me nervous to send things in. I was asked to send women's clothing so I may try that.

I'm going to try sending DD's clothes to Moxie Jean and see how it goes...
