With 2.5 billion pounds of textiles saved from landfills through resale, consignment is not only financially smart, it’s also a sustainable option — and right now is the perfect time to get rid of some of your old stuff!
Right before the holidays is a great time to consign so you can earn some extra money from the comfort of your couch. The RealReal (affiliate link) is a great place to consign your gently used clothing, handbags, accessories, and more.
There are three easy ways to consign with The RealReal.
1. Schedule An In-Home Pickup
If you have 10 or more items by designers on their Designer Directory, you may be eligible for their free White Glove pickup service.
2. Get Free Direct Shipping
If you have fewer than 10 items by designers on their Designer Directory or if White Glove service is unavailable in your area, you can get a free shipping label to send your items to us. Click here to start your consignment and get your free label. For further assistance, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Visit A Luxury Consignment Office
At their brick-and-mortar Luxury Consignment Offices, you can meet with experts in person to learn more about consigning and the value of your items.
Once they’ve receive your items, they will be authenticated, photographed, priced and included in your profile under My Sales. This process usually takes between 10-15 days. Items that are deemed inauthentic, are not on our Designer Directory or are not in sellable condition will be returned at the consignor’s expense.
Your commission tier is based on the amount of your net sales during your commission window, which is defined as the period from the date of your first sale through the end of the month that is one year from the date of your first sale.
For items priced at $121 and above, the commission you earn is based on your current tier and the net selling price of your item, inclusive of any promotional discounts that might be applied to the original resale price.
For items priced at $120 and below, the commission you earn will always be 55% regardless of your overall commission tier.
