Well two of my three items sold, for a total of 92 cents. I have the option to cash out but using either Paypal or a Visa gift card requires at least $1, and using Stripe would only yield 66 cents. The one shirt that did not sell has "expired" as I was not informed that consignments are posted for only 84 days. It will now be destroyed (a.k.a., "recycled") soon unless I request it back - for a shipping fee of $6 which is almost more than the consignment price. I don't want it back but I sent it in to be used, not destroyed. I could have lowered the price if I'd known I had only a limited time to sell it, and my cash out total would have been more than $1.
So in the end, I sent in a box full of quality items (see original post below), most of which were rejected due to issues that were fixable if they were even real (Ever hear of a washing machine? Button replacement?), and even for those things that were accepted I will receive so little that it's barely worth claiming. A box full of clothing with lots of wear left, and nothing to show for it.
“Classic styles rejected”
• Previous review
I sent in a box full of clothing in good condition according to the ThredUp rules, but only 3 items were accepted - two big-box tees and a badly piled sweater that I expected to be rejected. The rest were items of classic styling and good construction, most of them still in like-new condition. I didn't expect to make much money (as obviously their prices are already low and they have to make a profit) but I am dismayed that quality pieces were sent to be "recycled" because...they weren't this week's style? The brands (e.g., Lands' End, Carhaart, Coldwater Creek) weren't up to snuff? Different people have different tastes, yet ThredUp apparently gets to decide what people should want. I suppose the reason I've never bought anything on this site is that the clothing I might like (i.e., basic, classic) was rejected before I could even see it.
