Complaint Review: ThredUp
ThredUp SCAM - Do not send your items to this company! Internet
I mailed by bag and it arrived to ThredUp on December 19th. On December 27th I got en email saying my bag had been processed and to come see what I had earned! I was so excited because I wanted to use this money to buy my youngest son some winter clothes. I was devistated when I saw they only accepted 8 items and paid $10.45.
The weird part about it is this is not the super nice stuff. The Gap and Adidas Jackets and OshKosh 3 in 1 winter coats, the Gap, Old Navy and Levis Jeans..Gap button downs.somehow did not make it on this list. Most of the items listed above are actually the items I wasnt sure if they would accept. I sent in 25 name brand, like new items of clothing, and they accepted 8. Then I got to thinking about it. Its almost like they go through the bags and pick out the nice stuff for their own kids, then pay you on what is left. Who knows, it could be one employee who does this, or a company wide issue. Either way, when I emailed support about the issue, I got a general automated response. Basically, too bad, your unsellable items are being recycled.
I wouldnt be surprised if one of the owners had a store front and put all the super nice items there. Would be interesting to look into. So when it comes to ThredUp, I would suggest staying away! I had no issue with the one shirt I bought from them, but I would NOT send your childs outgrown clothes in. I would suggest finding a local store to take them to, or even have a garage sale! Youll be better off.
