FAQ

What adjustments can be made to my payout?

Your payout could increase if someone places a bid on your items or if you raise your listing prices. Your payout could decrease if you lower your listing prices or if an item is purchased using a discount after it has been listed for 7 days or more.

What happens if one of my items doesn’t sell within its listing window?

You may reclaim an accepted item during the final 7 days of the item's listing window. If you do not reclaim an accepted item, the item becomes property of thredUP.

What is the 12-hour bidding window?

After you’ve had 12 hours to edit the initial listing price of your items, they are available to be bid on for 12 hours. During this time, no adjustments can be made to your item’s price. If your item gets a bid, your payout will increase accordingly. If your item does not get a bid, it will be listed on the site and available for you to adjust the price again.

Why was my item sold before it was listed?

thredUP reserves the right to purchase your items before they are listed. If your kit has been activated with one of our retail partners, thredUP will purchase all your accepted items and you will receive a payout immediately.

When do I get my payout?

When one of your items is purchased, you’ll receive your payout and be able to cash out as soon as the 14-day return window has passed. If the item is returned, your consignment window will be reset so that your item has more time to sell, and you will be paid out as soon as the item sells for the second time.
