The Price Is Right

It can definitely be tricky figuring out how to price your items, but we have a few tips to help you out.

  1. DO check out our full Pricing Guide for lots of details on pricing.
  2. DON’T try to figure out how much you’ll make on each item. “If I sell this for $5, I’ll really only make $X, so I should sell it for $8 instead.” You’ll end up pricing your things too high and less things will sell. Our consignors who price low sell more items and end up making more money.
  3. DO price brand name items a bit higher than non-brands. Examples of brand names are Ann Taylor, Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, Banana Republic,¬†American Eagle, Gymboree…anything that has it’s own store. If it is from Kohl’s, JC Penny, Target, or another department type store, it is not a brand name.
  4. DO price things to sell! People are looking for a great deal and don’t want to pay $10 for a pair of baby girl pants from The Children’s Place. Typically, price items at least 75% off their retail value. If my Gap shirt cost $20, I would probably¬†price it at around $5 or less.
  5. DON’T try to consign way outdated clothing items. Even if they are priced low, they are much less likely to sell. Focus on stuff that people would buy now.
