Starting Your Closet

Personalising Your Closet

Add some character to your personal Closet, make it reflect your identity. You can change your cover picture and profile picture, as well as add a description about yourself and what you intend to sell, or even reserve your preferred username.

What are the Standards for Preloved Clothes?

Quality is of utmost importance to our buyers. We want to foster a marketplace where we can trust that our sellers are always forthcoming about all details of their preloved apparel. This means all unique features of the item should be highlighted, along with any defects, signs of wear, marks or alterations. We understand that many of the items being offered have been worn before but we expect sellers to only offer apparel that is in good condition and that someone else would be able to love it in its current state.

We expect all sellers to honestly detail imperfections such as marks, stains or burns, any loose fabric, missing buttons, broken zippers, etc. Failure to detail these will result a buyer rejecting your item when it is inspected after delivery. If this is the case the seller will have to claim their item and will not receive payment. The seller might potentially have their account on Restyle Closet closed for failing to truthfully state full details of the condition of the item they have offered for sale.

We do not condone sales of defective goods, with obvious tears or marks that render it in a condition that is unacceptable for continued usage. Please always be fair to your buyers and you will soon discover that this will benefit your rankings and your sales so you can truly discover the value of your Closet.

Brands We Accept

We only accept brands that are renowned for their attention to quality and design. Only send in items that belong to this list. If you think that we have missed out a brand that you would like to sell on Restyle Closet, you can reach out to us by clicking Contact Us. We are continually updating this list and are more than happy to welcome your feedback.

Guide to Improving Your Sales

The Pictures:

The first thing that a potential buyer sees is the pictures of your item. When you create your listing the Restyle Closet team will review the pictures you have submitted and clean up your pictures where possible to enhance it and remove any noise which may detract from the item. Through this process we will not cover over any blemishes, stains or other visible signs of wear and tear on your item. In order to touch up your listing and enhance it to its full potential, please make sure that you follow these guidelines to ensure we are starting from the best possible place with the highest quality cover pictures.

To achieve The Look:

  1. Take your picture in a very bright place, preferably under natural light, or with a flash. The lighting might look harsh with flash, but trust us – it will look much better once we touch it up.
  2. Make sure that your item is ironed and laid down neatly or hung up with a hanger against a highly contrasting background. If your apparel is pastel coloured, place it against a dark background for optimal picture quality.
  3. Center your item right in the middle of the screen. Make sure that no parts of the item are cut off.
  4. Take pictures of your clothes from as many angles as required to show off the item beautifully. You may even take close ups to highlight details of the fabric.
  5. You may even upload pictures of yourself with the dress that show it off well.

The Price:

Even if your piece is BNWT (Brand New With Tags) and it is in perfect condition, it is still secondhand. Sales generally occur when an item is listed at about 60% discount to the retail price. So do bear in mind that, while we allow you to set your own prices and Restyle Closet is designed to help you get the best prices, the value of a preowned item tends to drop substantially, no matter how good the condition, simply because it is preowned.

If you would like to amend your sale price after noticing that your listed price is too high, simply go in and amend it from your Closet. We will inform interested parties that you have dropped the price (this should appear in Extended Sale)!

Sharing The Love:

If you have posted a quality designer item on sale at Restyle Closet, then don’t hide it from your friends. Use your network and your friend's networks to let them know where you have listed your items. 

Always Share as much Detail as you can:

Sharing more information with potential buyers reassures them that you have taken the effort to be upfront with all the relevant details about your item – even defects and signs of wear. Always be as honest as you can – misrepresentation results in an unhappy buyer and not getting paid!

Create a listing

Editing Your Listing

Once you have set up your Closet and entered your item you can at any time return and amend all parts of your listing through My Closet. Simply move your mouse over the listing you would like to edit, click on the settings icon and change whatever it is you wish to update.

Listing Your Item

When you use Restyle Closet, putting an item up for sale can be effortlessly done by selecting “List Your Item” from your dropdown menu. Simply complete all the fields and upload images of your item (remember to be open and honest about your item). You can relax while our Touchup Artists make your images look much better. Make sure to also upload clear images taken in good lighting against a contrasting background, and of a good resolution. You have an option to proceed to "Add and Continue" the listing or to add same item in a different colour. Note this process will not cover or disguise signs of wear and tear on any item. This will then be submitted to our Touchup Artistes who will make sure that your listing looks beautiful before it becomes live on our site.

Completing a Sale

Shipping Your Item

When you have chosen an item you wish to purchase you will be asked to confirm your address (this cannot be a Post Office Box) and the weight of your item. If you are shipping a small item, the 1kg labels would definitely suffice. However, if you are sending over a large item that is heavier or hard to fold, please choose the 3kg or the 5kg label. You will need to pack your item(s) into a satchel of your own. This packaging should be the size of an A4, A3 or A2 size envelope/satchel then wait for us to contact you and pick up the item. Pick up can be arranged at your home or office to make it easier for you.

If you choose to ship it yourself, you can access the Buyer Address from the "My Sales" tab in Your Orders. Do make sure that you collect the Tracking Number when you post your item, as you are required to upload this into "My Sales". If your item is lost, and you do not have a Tracking Number, we will be required to refund the buyer.

What happens if my item gets sent back by buyer to Restyle Closet for authenticity checks?

Restyle Closet aims to match sellers who own designer items in great condition that they no longer use with buyers who are looking for that special piece at a more affordable price. When a buyer agrees to a purchase they are entering into a contract and must make full payment for the item (into our Secure Vault) before it gets shipped. If the goods are not as you have described or have been damaged in transit, the buyer may be entitled to a refund and if so would be expected to return the item(s). 

The buyer has 48 hours from the point of receipt of the item to notify Restyle Closet of any issues that they may have of the item they have purchased. If this occurs, Restyle Closet will contact the seller and work with to achieve a resolution. If the buyer has a genuine case their funds will be returned and any costs associated with returning the item will be at the seller's expense.

To minimise any risk of this situation arising, always make sure you never misrepresent your items. Although we place a lot of onus on the safe delivery of your items, do make sure that your item is packed well to prevent it from getting damaged in transit.

Your Payout Options

With Restyle Closet you can choose to add your own items and set your own prices. If you would rather not deal with the selling process, just leave it to us and we can manage your sale for you and pay you once an item sells so that you have your time completely free to focus on what’s important to you. You can also choose your method of being credited, between bank transfer or Paypal account. We offer full flexibility to suit all of your selling preferences. If you want more information on any option you can Contact Us for further help.

Cancelling a Sale

When you list an item on Restyle Closet if a buyer purchases it, you have accepted that the transaction is binding and you have an obligation to fulfil the transaction. It is for that reason that you set the price that it is available for a buyer to buy when you List Your Item. This is not an auction site so the price listed is the price the buyer must meet to get your item

At any time prior to a sale occurring you may need to cancel a sale. This may occur in a range of scenarios - for example, you decide you wish to keep the item because you have a special function coming up and this is what you want to wear, alternatively you may realise that the item has other undisclosed damages and you feel it will not be suitable for sale,  or you no longer have possession of the item.

In this case, quickly reach out to us here, explaining your situation. We will help you cancel the transaction. However, it is generally your responsibility to ensure that your listings are valid and the full condition of the item is as described. 

Confirming the sale of your item

Watch your email and monitor your dashboard to look out for our notifications that your listing has been purchased. You will be able to confirm the sale of your item by heading to the "My Sales" under Your Orders and clicking on Shipping to initiate the delivery of your item. 

Always make sure that the condition of your item matches the description at all times. We strive to make Restyle Closet a safe place for everyone, and if you are flagged for misrepresentation, we might have to close your account. Make sure that you check that all wear and tear is clearly stated in the listing and there are no additional flaws with you designer apparel.

When does the seller get paid?

When a buyer confirms that they wish to buy your item they enter into a contract for the purchase of the goods.  Restyle Closet operates differently to others in that we have established a special finacial "clearing house solution which is formally known as Escrow" The Escrow is the means through which the buyer and the seller are connected. Once the buyer commits to the purchase they pay into the Escrow account where the funds are held awaiting release to the seller. The item will be picked up from the seller and transported to the buyer. The buyer and seller can track the goods via a unique tracking number. After delivery the buyer will have 48 hours from the time of delivery (per tracking records) to raise any issues with your item. Any concerns raised by the buyer will be shared with the seller as quickly as practical to allow for a speedy resolution. If no issues are raised by the seller within the 48 hour period the buyer triggers the release of the funds (from Escrow) and your funds will be credited to your nominated account within 3 - 4 business days. You can choose whether this should be payed to a bank account or a Paypal account (charges apply).

This payment approach is designed to protect both the buyer and seller - sellers are not asked to ship the item(s) until funds have been recieved into the Escrow account. These funds are released to the seller once the goods have been delivered and no issues which may require a return of the item raised within 48 hours.
