How it works
- Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with a rough outline of the brands/ items you'd like us to sell - we'll let you know whether we think it's a good fit
- If it is, we'll ask you to send us a photo of each item (rough photos are more than fine) - we'll let you know what we think will sell well
- Post or courier the the selected items to us (we guide this process so it's as hassle free for you as possible)
- We photograph, write up and upload the items to site for you
- We handle all the customer enquiries and sale of your items for you
- We post the items to the buyer for you
- Once the sale is complete and the returns window has passed we pay you via PayPal
There are no upfront charges. Once an item is sold, Manifesto Woman charges an administration fee of 40%.
So, for example, if we sell something of yours for £50, you get £30. Or, if we sell something of yours for £120, you will get £72.
We pay all the VAT and card/ payment fees too... so you don't have to worry about unexpected charges eating into your profits.
Anything else I need to know?
We really wanted to avoid issuing a long list of terms and conditions but, with apologies, here they are:
- Please ensure all items sent to us are clean, free of stains/ marks, have no obvious signs of wear and are not in need of dry cleaning. If items need to be dry cleaned, we will need to charge you for the cleaning costs. If they are stained/ need repairs we will donate them to charity or return them to you, charging you for any postage costs (we will automatically donate damaged items to charity so please make sure you tell us up front if you'd like items returned).
- Items that are unsuitable for the Manifesto Woman site (they might not fit the aesthetic, be difficult to sell or other) will either be returned or donated to charity. All return costs will be your responsibility.
- It may take weeks or sometimes months for us to upload your items to the site. This is because (a) we receive a lot of stock and are a very small team, (b) we carefully curate the site so that it looks visually appealing to shop, (c) we don't upload lots of items of the same size/ style at a time, (d) we upload items that fit with the current season - so if you've given us summer dresses in autumn you'll need to wait to late spring to see them appear on site - and (e) your items may not fit with the collections we are focusing on at the time we receive them.
- Items that haven't sold at full price over the course of a season will automatically be put into the sale section at a reduced price
- We tend to clear out unsold stock every couple of months to keep the site looking fresh and make room for new items. If you'd like your unsold items returned to you (as opposed to us donating them to charity for you), you will need to bear the costs of return.
- We have no control over how quickly things sell or whether they sell at all. We do our best but sometimes it doesn't work out.
- Pricing is set according to a wide variety of factors: quality, brand, social currency, recency of production, size, type of garment, fabric, condition, scarcity, fit with the Manifesto Woman aesthetic + many others. Our pricing is in line with other resellers.
- We only pay out for a sale once the returns window has passed... this is between 7 - 10 days from shipping in the UK and within a month of shipping for overseas sales.
- If an item of yours looks like it has sold on the site but you haven't been paid it is either because it is being returned or because it has already been returned and has sold again and is now in another returns window. Please bear in mind that if it has been sold to a customer outside the UK the returns window can last up to 30 days depending on their location.
- You'll need a PayPal account for payments; we don't pay into bank accounts
- If you're selling your clothes because you need money quickly, then we are not the right site for you.
