How much will I earn for my clothing?

You can earn up to 80% of the selling price of any item thredUP can resell in our Shop! WOW!!!!

How do we determine our pricing? Very carefully :)  Our team is constantly working to determine the best value for our Clean Out customers, shoppers, and the business as a whole. We take into consideration a few factors such as MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price), the price you paid for that new in the store, seasonality, the age of an item, quality, style, and how quickly items are flying off our racks!

How do you earn this amount? Two ways: 

  • UPFRONT: Any item with an initial listing price of $59.99 or less qualifies for an upfront payout. You can expect to earn between 10% to 40% of the anticipated selling price (the price thredUP will sell the item for on the website). Earnings are in your thredUP account as soon as your Clean Out bag is processed! You may use your earnings immediately to shop on thredup.com, or after 14 days turn them into cash via Paypal!
  • CONSIGNMENT: Any item with an initial listing price of $60 or more qualifies for consignment. You can expect to earn between 50% to 80% of the selling price. You are notified when an item sells and after 14 days, you may use your earnings to shop on thredup.com or turn them into cash via Paypal. Learn more here.
