Seller FAQs:

How should I price my items?

  • We generally find that the higher the resale discount from retail, the more quickly an item will sell. To give your item the best chance of selling, we recommend pricing the item with 30+% off – see below for our pricing recommendations based on item condition.

    • New with tags → minimum 25% discount

    • New without tags → minimum 30% discount

    • Worn once & dry-cleaned → minimum 30% discount

    • Worn once & not dry-cleaned → minimum 35% discount

    • Worn more than once → minimum 40% discount

    • Altered? → add 10% discount

What happens when my item sells?

  • You will receive an email from Trousso with a link to accept or decline the offer, as well as access to a messaging system, where you can communicate with the buyer.

  • In order for the transaction to proceed, you must accept the request. We ask our sellers to please accept or decline within 3 days, so we can be respectful of our buyers’ time!

  • If the transaction is not accepted within 3 days or before the end date (whichever comes first), the transaction is canceled, and no money is transferred.

  • Once you accept a transaction:

    • If you are SHIPPING the item, please mail out the item, and then message your buyer on Trousso with the shipping tracking number.

    • If you are PICKING UP the item, please agree on a date and safe location for the exchange.

  • Items must be shipped within 5 calendar days of accepting the transaction. Otherwise, the order can be canceled.

When do I receive payment for my item that sold?

  • Sellers will be paid once the item has been delivered to and accepted by the buyer (maximum 3 days post-delivery).

  • If an item is not as described within the listing or is sent the wrong item, the buyer can report these issues with the order within 3 days of order delivery. In these cases, sellers will not be paid out and will have items returned to them.

How do I get paid?

  • Payments are powered by Stripe, the world's leading payment processing system. Upon account creation, you will be prompted to share your payment information with Stripe.

  • Once you accept a transaction, the money is captured from the buyer's card, and funds are put on hold. Once the buyer receives the item, the buyers mark the order complete. Money is then moved into the seller’s bank account, and it usually takes about 7 days for the funds to post. Both parties get a receipt of the transaction via email.

What is Trousso’s commission?

  • Our fees are very straightforward. It is free to list an item on our site. If an item is purchased, the seller keeps 80% of any sale and Trousso’s commission is 20% (which covers credit card processing fees & allows for an ad-free marketplace).
