What’s up at thredUP: shop by color, better browsing, new Android app!

share this:

It’s been a busy summer here at thredUP, so with kids heading back to school and Labor Day fast approaching, we wanted to take a minute to share some of the new features we’ve been working on over the past few months.

Shop by Color

This one is hot off the presses — we just rolled out a new tool that lets you filter items by color. The new color picker makes putting together coordinated outfits fun and easy, because you can quickly find matching items. To apply a color filter, look for the color swatch next to the brand and category search bar. When you’re viewing a single item you can also click the color swatches next to the item to see more clothes in similar colors.


Browse by Category

Since every item in the thredUP Shop is unique, helping you sort through tens of thousands of items to find just the right piece is one of our biggest challenges. To make things a bit easier, we recently launched Browse by Category, a highly requested feature from thredUP shoppers.

Click the “Browse by Category” link (right next to the new color filter!), and you’ll see a drop-down menu that lets you select the category of clothing you want to shop for — with everything from overalls to snowsuits, and leggings to polo shirts, we’re sure something will catch your eye!


New top-level navigation

We also launched a brand new top-level navigation bar to make exploring thredUP easier. Thanks to your feedback, we added new options in the Shop tab — now you can filter by gender or head straight to our Stylist Looks page to find inspriation for new outfits. We also consolidated everything related to your interactions with thredUP under a single My Account tab — this includes your account details, Clean Out bag history, order history, and friends & family referrals.


Mobile app for Android phones

We launched a mobile app for iPhone and iPad a few months ago, so we’re thrilled that our Android app is now available in the Play store. The new app lets you filter items by brand, category, and size, place orders using credit card or PayPal, and request Clean Out bags to make room for all your new threds! Download the app here.


As you can see, our team has been working hard to continue improving both Shop and Clean Out. We’re keeping this momentum going through the fall and are already planning and building a bunch of stuff that we can’t wait to share with you. As always, we’d love to hear what you think about these new features or anything else you’d like to see on the site. Leave us a comment below!
