Onesie Exchange charges its sellers flat 9% commission to sell with us.  This fee includes all the cost to keep up our system, marketing ads, and coupons we do.  There’s additional 3% processing fee collected by PayPal and other similar payment processing services.

Your total fee would never exceed 12% combined.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Why is your fee lower than others?” style=”square_outline” color=”green” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1442971098456-a5cfb20b-3a2c”]Compare to popular sites who charges 25% ~ 40%, we charge far less because:

  • We are here to help you, not make money off of you – While we do have to make some money to maintain our site & provide support to you, we are really here to help.  And we have internal discussions on how we can save you more money everyday.  So you’ll never see us trying to take bigger chunk of your precious items.

This is why Onesie Exchange is the best place to sell used baby clothes!

Only exception to this is when you provided coupon or sale on your end.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Do you provide any gaurantees?” style=”square_outline” color=”green” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1442444063075-a4d9b050-c715″]Of course!  Onesie Exchange will make sure that you are treated fairly and get you paid as soon as possible.  We will track your shipment (once you provide us with tracking info) and make sure it is handled fast and send you funds asap.

  • Each product MUST have at least one clear picture
  • Each product MUST have some description including condition of the item
  • Each product MUST explain whether the clothes are for boys, girls, or neutral
  • Price of each product MUST include shipping within lower 48 states
  • You may NOT list clearly damaged items without clearly stating it  Such damages may include missing parts, hole, stain or tear on clothing.
  • When selling clothing, please make sure it’s washed & clean to wear

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Do you have any guidelines / suggestions about posting a product?” style=”square_outline” color=”turquoise” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1442506715059-827233c9-8049″]We sure do!  Here are our suggestions on how you should list your products.

  • Sell in bulk – Bulk usually means cheaper pricing especially if you count shipping into a factor.  We’d suggest always sell used baby clothes in packs of 5~10 or more.
  • Multiple pictures – Having couple extra pictures do help sell your product quick!
  • Detailed Description – Everyone loves to know all the information before they buy.  So if you explain well about your product, it’s likely to be sold first.
  • Tags & Attribution – Having correct attribution selected and tags will make your product visible!
  • Share! Share your product via social media.  Let people discover what kinds of product you have listed to sell!

[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What do I do if I don’t have 10 of same thing?” style=”square_outline” color=”turquoise” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1443310694307-2bdabe5e-8eb2″]If you don’t have 10 items of similar size or type, that’s ok.  You can choose to sell less in a package or make a combination package with other items that would go together.

We suggest bundling with other size or other items that baby might need.  You’ve been there & know what the new parents need.  Feel free to come up with a new creative package that will be useful to other parents.

One of guideline we recommend is use whatever will fit in flat rate padded envelope.

Here are some examples of what might fit in padded envelope:
– 12x 3m size onesies & pants
– 10x 12m size shirts & pants
– 5x 3m size onesie + 5x 3m pants + 2x 3m shocks & shoes.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I set price of my item?” style=”square_outline” color=”turquoise” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1442506715054-be77c7c3-4a63″]You are free to set whatever price you feel is fair.  It is a good idea to see what other similar items are being sold in order to determine right price for the item.

For example, typical used item you sell at consignment store or online store would give you $1.5~3 per item. (not including shipping to them) and then they sell it for around $4~5 per item.  So we suggest to set your price in the middle and maybe give bulk discount!  😉

Just make sure shipping price is included with all your prices.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”What if my item does not sell?” style=”square_outline” color=”turquoise” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1442506715055-46349d1d-aa55″]Because most items on Onesie2Onesie is not repeat purchase items, it should have fast selling cycle.  If your item is not being sold, we’d recommend checking quality of pictures, description, and price to make sure your product has fair pricing and is well represented.[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Product shipping
[/vc_column_text][vc_toggle title=”How do I handle shipping?” style=”square_outline” color=”chino” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1442445088660-792f030d-68fe”]Sellers are responsible for packing & shipping the products you sell.  For most items, we recommend using padded envelopes that can protect your items.

Please keep in mind that all items listed must include packaging and shipping cost within United States.  So it is a good idea to check shipping cost before determining final selling price.

Note: See below ‘Do you have recommendation on shipping?’ for more help![/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How do I determine shipping cost?” style=”square_outline” color=”chino” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1443246314591-58e4e09e-9f1d”]First, find out dimension and weight of your items.

Second, decide which carrier you’ll be using.

Third, run couple quotes to to few distant states to get a good idea on pricing.

Note: See below ‘Do you have recommendation on shipping?’ for more help![/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Do you have recommendation on shipping?” style=”square_outline” color=”chino” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1443246422371-cafca115-6e13″]We sure do.  We recommend you to use USPS padded flat rate envelope.  This envelope is 9.5″ x 12.5″ large and can fit a good amount of baby clothes in one pack.

We recommend using this as your bulk packing, meaning whatever fits in that envelope as one item.

You can order this envelope for FREE from USPS so you can even pre-pack it, and it’ll ship for only $5.70 if you print label online.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”How long do I have to ship after it’s sold?” style=”square_outline” color=”chino” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1444089940672-9b7dc721-99d6″]When your item is sold, please try to ship your item ASAP.  Most buyers are excited to get their new purchase and would like to see item being shipped within 24 hours.  But we do know life happens.

However, if an item is not shipped & tracking info provided within 72 hours, we will auto-cancel the order.  If you have a reason you cannot ship within the time frame, please submit a ticket and let us know.  One extra day would be allowed over the weekend.[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”I still have to go to post office… and wait… (or NOT!)” style=”square_outline” color=”chino” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1443819092234-97bec2e2-6861″]The best part!!!

Long story short, we decided this is the BEST way to do it.  Simply add what your shipping cost would have been and that’s exactly what they will pay for, no gimmicks![/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Few other misc. things
[/vc_column_text][vc_toggle title=”What about sales tax?” style=”square_outline” color=”vista_blue” css_animation=”left-to-right” el_id=”1442506647564-41e43e95-7185″]In most cases, if you’re selling used baby clothes that you have personally purchased and used, you would not be required to collect or report sales tax as this would not be considered as business or hobby business.

If you’re collecting clothes in business-like manner or selling new items in larger quantity than what most people would have personally, then yes, you would be required to register & collect & report tax.

But this would not apply to most of us parents here. 🙂
