When I went on my closet cleaning binge back in the end of May, I ordered three bags from thredUP to see if they would be able to sell anything. As of a few days ago (due to volume, it takes thredUP while to process stuff that comes in.), all my bags have been processed, and here’s what I got. You can read my original assessment of thredUP here in a previous post.
The first bag did really well, and they accepted about half of what I sent, which is better than their usually 40 percent acceptance rate. I got a payout of $9.65. Not bad!
The next bag didn’t do as well, but was still within thredUP’s acceptance rate. I sent about four or five pairs of shoes, and only two pairs were accepted. That payout was $3.85.
My third bag was way under the rate, but all of the items that I would be sure would be accepted were. I was a tad disappointed at this particular payout of $3.60; I would have thought it would’ve been higher, but it does fall within thredUP’s guidelines and payout structure.
Is ordering that green and white polka dot bag worth it? I guess so. It got a lot of stuff off my hands, and I made a little scratch that I can pay out of in a few days, or use as credit on thredUP‘s shop, which is probably what I’ll end up doing. A total credit of $17.10 will get a few things on the site, and you have to wait two weeks from final bag processing to cash out anyway.
