HOW DOES UPCYCLE CLOTHING WORK?

Upcycle Clothing’s mantra is to provide a seamless service centred upon removing the effort of reselling your clothing.  We are all guilty of buying items that we only ever end up wearing once and sometimes never, this causes big impacts to the environment, your wardrobe and especially to your bank account.


Upcycle Clothing provides a unique service to resell your items with a chic virtual experience, modelled on real women, in real photos, on an easy-to-use platform. We market your inventory, find your buyers, communicate the details, and take care of the post-purchase hassles, like shipping. Just like that, you have decluttered your wardrobe, reduced fashion waste on the environment and given your outfits a new lease on life. Best of all you can sit back and watch your sales come in to reinvest in new stylish purchases.

PRICING YOUR ITEMS

As part of submitting an inventory list of items you want to sell you can nominate a pricing band with a nominated sale price and a minimum accepted price. On receipt of the items Upcycle Clothing will review and confirm the pricing expectations with the consignee. As a rule, Upcycled fashion generally trades from between 25% - 70% of the Recommended Retail price, based on condition. For Example, a $200 Dress may be listed for $150 if Brand New with Tags or $50 if worn multiple times and has minor wear visible. Other dependencies include brand, exclusivity, season, or vintage. 

We use external and internal data to capture trending insights to ensure appropriate pricing. During the consignment period the consignee may choose to participate in Sales promotions or warehouse sales. All sales outside of the pricing range on the approved inventory listing will be approved by the consignee.

If you choose to end your consignment period, they will be returned to you via the way you gave your items to Upcycle Clothing.
