I took my two bags to the FedEx here in town, and they shipped the bags for me in March. I logged onto my selling tab on ThredUP’s website and saw that they received my items March 21st, but I wouldn’t be able to see what they were going to offer me until April 28th! I figured that it would take awhile for them to look through everything, but I didn’t think it would take that long. I waited patiently though and logged onto my selling tab on the 28th. I couldn’t believe it…they offered me hardly anything!!! If I had known how very little I would be getting back from selling on ThredUP, I would have taken my stuff to the local consignment store in Waco for store credit or probably more cash than ThredUP offered me. I gave them one of my gently used Fossil Bags for crying out loud and it went to the upfront category of payment. I thought that was very interesting. Why was a J.Crew skirt in the consignment category but my 100% leather purse wasn’t. You don’t get your clothes back they don’t want to sell either unless you pay $10 more for a bag in the beginning.
I saw that most of my stuff was selling super fast too, which was kind of irritating. I really couldn’t be too upset though. People were getting great deals, like my sister did. When I went to cash out, I discovered that the “upfront” cash they offered me wasn’t even upfront. I was going to have to wait about 3 weeks until I got paid. ThredUP offers two options: 1) receive your money via Paypal and give ThredUP 2% of your earnings, or 2) have them ship you a Visa card in two weeks. I feel like it’s been forever since I send my bags to ThredUP and it’s going to take even longer to see the money I did make.
