I loved most of the clothes I purchased and got them at great prices. However, I don't like that there's a restocking fee for each item that's sent back. I liked being able to try new things and I feel much less likely to order certain items with this new fee.
We appreciate your feedback. As we apply certain fees to our services, we do have our customers in mind every step of the way.
When the site started it was awesome they gave a reasonable amount of money back to you and always had 20% off days. I am not sure what has happened but it's clear someone's gotten greedy. I send in very nice clothes some brand new!! They are taking $30 and leaving me with $1.50!! Not to mention they take forever to go through your bag, never offer discounts anymore, and have marked up their USED clothing to be more than it was when it was brand new. Sorry Thread Up but you are a huge THUMBS DOWN. Get a reality check, it's used clothes! I can't see this site lasting long with the way it's going they will be belly up in no time. I'd rather donate my clothes for a good cause then give to you greedy people.
We apologize if our Clean Out Program did not meet your expectations. Our hope is to always manage expectations initially around what you can make with us. We provide the payout estimator (thredup.com/cleanout/payout-estimator) and display our payout structure (https://bit.ly/2rjNhPx) to allow customers to get a better idea of how much they'll earn.
Returns take forever to reach ThredUP, a message takes forever to get a response, and the request I made was ignored without a response to let me know how it would be handled. Very disappointed. I spend quite a bit each month, and I'm left wondering, why?

Don't use at all to sell.Sent brand new with & without tags got told only $1.90 was amount for me.5% on items only accepted 5 they got a lot from those. Rest in their rescue boxes for 10 items at $35-$75 a pop. Saw some on the site being sold that was unaccepted.awent to cash out only option was bank transfer they would only give me .50c for the $1.90.So tried it was only option at this point but kept claiming every debit card to routing numbers were invalid.Kept spinning forever then if it went through said invalid debit.lol tell that to my bank it's what they gave me.Deleted will have relatives delete theirs seller beware.Youtube newer reviews say it all ...greedy theives.
Thanks for your message. We apologize if our Clean Out program did not meet your expectations. Please be assured that our processors never intentionally reject items from a Clean Out Bag with the intention of selling them through our Rescues shop. If an item is in acceptable condition, we want to list if for sale on our site so we can award credits to our sellers and so we can give our customers more pieces to shop from.
I wish I did my research before sending in my consignment items which is why I'm warning you guys. Majority of my items were brand new and what I got ($$) for them was an absolute joke! I literally feel like I was completely robbed and there is nothing I can do about it! I'll give you a couple examples. I had a brand new with tags goregous Free People Top and I got $.60 for it!!! Another Free People top I got $.55 for!!Brand new Express pants $.75!!! Why am I making pennies on my items when they are making $10+++ on each of these items?? I may as well given my things away! At least I wouldn't be left feeling robbed!
You will get almost nothing for what you send. If you send good items you may wish to pay for return, although it will eat up anything you make. You are probably better off either selling elsewhere or donating.
Customer service does not respond. They do not care. If your order is not as needed, then you are out of luck. Horrible customer service.
I ordered a sweatshirt a sweater dress, and a plaid shirt. I got the plaid shirt it was good not too used. The sweatshirt felt like it was 20 years old and it fit me like I was out of style. And the most I was excited about was the sweater dress, but I didn't receive it so I contacted them and it took them a long time to reply. To say if you don't have the barcode or serial number they can't help me they never gave me any number! That's bull crap, they just wanted to rip me off I got 2 used (1 very crappy) pieces of clothing for 26$ you should just go to salvation army and find clothing that is not too used and fits you correctly and you know if you spend money on it you get to keep it (plus you don't have to pay to ship) it's just a bad idea to shop at a used clothing store online.
Plus they have terrible customer service
It's a scam you might get lucky though I don't think it's worth the risk.
If you want extremely used, thread worn, pure rags... This is your company. And why so many different packages??? This is the biggest rip off I've ever seen. The items look like items you would burn before you would Donate them! It is literally just like lighting a $100.00 bill on fire. This should not be allowed. BBB contacted, formal complaint. Trust me, run from this horrific website!!!
I sent in two boxes of items in January, one box With 21 items (Ann taylor wool & skirts, jcrew shirts, banana republic silk tops, Vince camuto wool pants etc) just got processed, and I was offered a whopping payout of $2.20 for 4 accepted items. I wasn't expecting much, but $2.20 Is ridiculous. The weird thing is thredUP accepted the crumiest 4 tops from the box and rejected the new to like new jcrew and Ann taylor and Vince camuto items! I take it that the staff decided they liked the items enough for themselves and therefore rejected' them. This is called stealing thredup! Too bad my second box is already in your possession. But you know what? I have many more nicer items I have been contemplating on selling (new Lilly pulitzer, theory) that I will no longer send in. I learned my lesson. Do NOT send anything of value to thredup. Next time I will just donate. I am thinking thredUP deserves people mailing in physical garbage, that business is garbage. Oh yah thredup, I have taken pictures of my items before I shipped them to you thieves!
I sent over 2 boxes of clothes still with tags on them and got back just a little over $6 if I cash out now or a little over $18 when and IF they sell. These clothes were brand new, NEVER worn, and still had tags on them. I should have just donated them to Good Will. I understand they need to make money as a business and it is only second hand, but $6 for BRAND NEW clothes is INSANE! I will NEVER do business with them again. Poshmark is a way better way to go to make a little extra cash on the side.
Stay away. They sell your stuff and give you about fifty cents. You are better off selling it your self on Mercari
The women's size four sweater that I bought barely fits my average sized 5 year old granddaughter. The boys size 12 jeans are women's size 12 jeans. I emailed their support staff over 48 hours ago and haven't heard a word. I will not be buying from here again, and I will be posting negative reviews around the 'net.
The whole reason for selling your unwanted but still wearable clothes is in hopes to make a little extra cash, not .70 cents. That's what you get ONLY IF your close sell and if they don't well then you might as well sent them to good will cause you don't get anything. What is even more annoying about this company the clothes they don't take they sell to other sister companies for profit whom them those store make money by selling your clothes while you don't get a dime for them. Absolutely worst store I have ever done business with. If I could give negative stars I would.
We are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with the Clean Out process. To clear this misconception about sister companies, we repurpose rejected items into our Rescue program, which then allows us to donation portions of proceeds to our Charity Partners. There is very little, if any, profit made off of these items. The intention is to utilize items that would otherwise not be recycled properly or destroyed. Hope this information helps.
I sent in several quality items and the low amount I received for each piece is ridiculous. I will use Poshmark instead. The reason their prices are so good is because they pay their sellers so little for their merchandise.
We are sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with your Clean Out experience. It’s important to remember that using thredUP means that you may not earn as much as you would if you sold your items peer to peer. But what you may miss in earnings, you earn back in overall convenience. Our goal is to help make our customers’ lives easier by helping them get rid of unwanted items from their closets from the convenience of their own home. While you might be able to earn slightly more by selling elsewhere, thredUP does all of the hard work for you: no driving, no negotiating with buyers, no dealing with rejected items.
You can definitely find great buys here, however, I will never sell with them again. I would say do your research before buying with them because some things are overcharged, others are steals with the discounts that they'll provide (on occasions). In regard to selling with them, DON'T you won't make anything on the clothes that they do "accept" but a few cents here and there. I had given them a bag full of items, some designer garments and they never turned up as items that they "accepted". I am a bit confused by this. They make it so hard to have your items returned that you won't decide to do so when sending off your bag. I am a bit skeptical about their integrity and I will say that it is best to go elsewhere.
I've been using Thredup for a couple of years. I have sent 4-5 clean out bags in to them and also made over a dozen purchases. Until recently, I was very satisfied, no issues. I was having better success at selling my items and finding my sizes unlike the hassle of local shops which never had my size or would refuse my items after I dragged them to the store (because they had no space or too many similar items). In Summer 2018, I noticed they up sold a designer bag I sent in. That was the first red flag. In December 2018, I sent in a bag, which took over a month to process. The Summer bag (15 items) had an initial payout of $71. The January 2019 bag had more items accepted with two different payouts, $24 in consignment (for 19 pieces) Or a $12 initial payout. WTH. I was completely disappointed. I'd been using the site to upcycle my wardrobe, and I can't do that when I get 60 cents for a $50 dress. It was great while it lasted. The honeymoon is over.
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your Clean Out experience this time around. Our new payout structure exists to offer sellers their choice of payment. It is important to note that Consignment prices are left to the discretion of the seller, so the listed earning is based off recommend consignment prices. Our program is not with the intention of making the most money, but rather contributing to a circular economy in a convenient manner. Rather than having to drive to a retail location and go through the process there, our mail in bags offer convenience for all.
I only received part of my order and they tell me quote, "It says here that the package was delivered on 1/25/19. You should check around your porch and house. Check with your neighbors, and call your local post office." They didn't think I already did that? I only received ONE of the two items I ordered and PAID for. Now they tell me to wait ten more days before contacting customer service again.
SUCH A JOKE!
This inquiry has been handled within our policy. It is standard to wait 10 days in the event that the package is delivered to you. Most times, this is the case and customers receive their order shortly after it is marked as delivered. If you still do not receive your order, follow up with Customer Service, and they can better assist you. Thank you.
I would give them infinity amount of stars if I only could, this website is go to website is you want to buy or sell secondhand items. I have done both I bought few things and each of them was in a great as described condition I also sold and I am still selling because they pay outright fair price I would say very fair more they pay more then material world ( the material world website should be shot down because they pay almost nothing) crossroads is paying more then material world but less then thredup. Consigning with thredup is a pleasure they pay way more the % amount for sold item is way higher then the The Real Real ( which pays less unless you reach 10,000 in sales but still less then Thredup. I can't thank you enough for a great customer service, amazing customer services, very helpful and you don't have to follow up in order to get your issue resolved. Thank you all for a great customer service
I started off by donating a bag of just clothing. They were things that I didn't really wear anymore they were still in excellent condition so I tried it out. I sent in about 30 items and they excepted about 10 of those 30 items the rest were just gone by the wayside and they were really nice. I ended up getting about $16, LOL. I should've learned my lesson but then I thought well I have so many purses & Wallets so I'll try this one more time because I'm sure these are going to be worth more as they were all coach bags except for one Louis Vuitton wallet, a Kate Spade wallet, a Lodis wallet and a Victoria's Secret tote. Come to find out they only accepted The Kate Spade wallet, Victoria Secret Tote & Lodis wallet! They stole my Louis Vuitton wallet!!!! Not to mention all the Coach Habdbags!! Here I am thinking I would probably get A pretty good amount from that. No they stole it!! I tried to contact them to ask them why were they not excepted and I would like my items back and they told me no. Said I should've requested a return bag that I would pay for if they didn't except items. They are a rip off!!
I sent them bag full of expensive clothes about half with tags still on and omg! I know it's my fault for not doing my research, but I sent in probably $800 worth of items and my guaranteed payout is $40. HUGE MISTAKE!!!!!
If you expect to get a fair price for your items this is NOT the company. I sent a box full of gently used items, some with the tag still on thinking I could make a small profit-I was wrongly mistaken. They will offer you 50cents for an item selling for $15.00, it is not worth it unless you are donating clothes. I will never do business with this company again and I don't expect them to last very long. I do not support buying from them either because I know the original owner was not properly compensated. Very misleading, unfair company.
Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. We are sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with your Clean Out kit value. We offer a number of resources for our customers to insure they are well informed before sending us items for processing. You can find our payout percentage and calculate potential earnings using these tools:
Terrible company. Do not do business with them! You are better off going to a consignment store to sell items and then YOU get the tax break. They can take all of your clothes - even if they meet all and *every single one* of their requirements - and just "decide" not to accept them. No reason other than "we decided." Perfectly good designer brand stuff - most of which was New With Tags...and it's "nope!" Then they donate *your* expensive items and take *your* tax break. It's highway robbery. I'll be reporting them to the BBB next for this practice. It's disgusting, and utterly without morals. Worst part? Back in the day when they were a startup brand, they were fair, transparent, and responsive. Now, absolutely none of that is true. Don't buy or sell from them...you have been warned!
I sent in a bag of clothes, containing a brand new reformation dress. Thred up accepted some random items for a total of $18 refund, and threw away my reformation dress. I followed up with them to see how come I didn't get credit for a new dress and after several days they told me that there were stains on the dress so that's why they sorted it out. This is BS, the dress was worn twice and had no stains on it. Since I didn't select a return option, the dress is gone forever. What a shame. Bad sorting, not reliable.
I bought a "goody box" from Thredup - there were 10 items. The retail prices are crazy high. One of the highest was a jewelry brand no longer in existence. "Retail" was $143, thredup was $25. I have seen better items in Target. teeny initial necklace (sure was thrown in as its an E and me name starts with E). One shirt I like BUT was a size 3 and I am a medium/large. Then their was there own brand REMADE which looks like a cheap imitation of the Target brand boyfriend shirt with a creased pocket with a retail of $34 - are you kidding? I was considering sending clothing in but I am too embarrassed to sell with them. The item I liked best is a fold over backpack from Scarleton. NOTE their "retail" is $48, thredup price 30.99 USED. The backpack is on amazon NEW for 29.99 with prime AND on Walmart's website. I usually wear used clothing but am very particular about brands. I love Toms. Kate Spade, Athleta, and more fun casual stuff. This was just a sad mishmash of someone doing the birdbox challenge at Ross or Marshalls.(tried to upload photo didnt work)

Do NOT do NOT do NOT give them your nice clothing. They will STEAL it from you. Things that warrant a good price tag should go to a consignment shop. Those you're willing to sell, use eBay, those you just want to "off load", donate to consignment yourself. You will feel better about it, I promise.

I'd love to see a class action suit build against this company. I'm a young professional -- a lawyer, actually (unrelated practice area) -- who is shocked and disappointed by this company's conduct. They're taking advantage of a demographic they think won't speak up. Young women: raise your voices! After having my like-new Diane Von Furstenberg weekender bag disappear into this company, never to be seen again, I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. One small step, but it's something! It takes 5 minutes. USE YOUR VOICE!

I almost always sell on eBay first. Then when I don't feel like hanging on to the clothes any more and just want my closet space back and they have been on eBay for months, I will send to thredUP. I don't even send in that high end of items and I will usually get $16 and up per bag. So to me, it's a last resort, but I usually can expect something even if it's a little. I LOVE thredUP for buying. Use their upfront calculator to see what items they take. They will say 50 cents to 1.00 per item so it is not hidden info. There is always the return option where you can get your entire bag back for $12.99 as well. Everyone who has nice stuff they'd want back should opt for this method always.

Honestly this company is not choosing to accept a lot of product that could easily be listed. I have sent bags and bags, including valuable pieces.... cashmere sweaters, high end items of considerable retail cost and relatively recently produced. When questioned I am given the response that the items were not in as good a shape as they wanted them to be.. that their buyers should be able to buy perfect product. My take on this is ..... if it's a 200 dollar cashmere sweater and the purchase price is under 10 dollars, a few pills on the fabric should be a non issue!!!! Period. I question what is going on, frankly, as many do. Too much disappears with no explanation, many bags go into complete reject status. I genuinely am concerned that there is a story here and may become apparent after a while. Only time will tell.

Not worth it unless you have stuff priced over $40 and can get 40%. There percentages are ridiculous for lower priced clothes. You can order return assurance for about $12 but be prepared to get a bag back with your items stuffed in like garbage. They do not even take the time to fold things nicely even though you pay for this service.
Votes Thanks for voting!
Because they essentially steal your clothes and then sell them for a profit. You get hardly any payout, but they gladly take all your clothes and sell them for a big mark up.

This company cannot be trusted...stay away. They are bad news.
