Our Evaluation Process

We treat your clothing carefully and thoroughly inspect every item using our time-tested quality assurance process. Items that meet our strict quality standards are professionally photographed and immediately listed on thredUP.

your payout

Upfront

Items listed under $60

You'll receive a payout as soon as these items are processed.

Consignment

Items listed over $60

You'll be paid for these items once they sell.

The amount you're paid depends on the original price, brand and category of each item. You can use our Earnings Estimator to see how much others have earned for similar items.

We do our best to sell every item we accept and work hard to get your clothes in front of buyers. Items will be marketed on thredUP.com and third party partner sites.

Want Your
Items Back?

If you'd like to have the items we don't accept returned to you, you can select Return Assurance when you order your Clean Out Kit.

Consignment items can be reclaimed within the first 7 days or once they've been listed for 84 days.

What happens to
unaccepted items?

We have high quality standards and typically accept about 50% of the clothing we receive. Here is what happens to the unaccepted items.

Unaccepted items are passed onto third party sellers or our textile recycling partners and repurposed into new, useful products like carpets and pillow stuffing.

The proceeds we recoup help us cover some (but not all) of the shipping and labor costs.

Every year, we donate 10% of recycled proceeds to Teach for America.
