Consignment

The minimum age requirement to consign at The Closet Trading Co. is 18 years old. Minors who wish to consign with us may have a parent or legal guardian create an account on their behalf. 

All consignors must provide a valid US drivers license or ID when consigning with us for the first time.

The consignment period is 90 days.

It is important to know that our buyers have been extensively trained in the research and pricing process based on the guidelines set by experts with over 30 years of buying experience. Our buyers spend a lot of time researching your items to determine what they will be priced at. We also take into account prices at competitive resale entities. We do not wait for approval of prices before putting items out on floor, however if you don't agree with the price of an item please feel free to contact the store you dropped your items off at and we can explain our pricing and determine whether or not it is reasonable to price the item higher or if we should return it to you. Please note: items tend to sell fast! Please email us ASAP with any pricing concerns.

It is the consignors responsibility to request to retrieve any items before they expire. Any items left past their expiration date will become property of The Closet Trading Company per the terms stated in our contract.

That’s just fine! Keep in mind that it may take up to 14 days to gather items before their expiration date. This time allows us to coordinate getting your items back to their original store if they were transferred to another location. All requests must be made via email.

Getting Paid

We prepare checks for balances of $50.00 and more. You have the option of having checks mailed to your address or you can opt to pick up checks at The Closet Trading Co. location of your choice. Balances of less than $50.00 can be picked up in cash. 

Consignment accounts with a balance of $50.00 or more will be settled on the last day of each month. Checks are then mailed out during the third week of the following month. If you opt to pick up your checks at one of our locations, you will be notified when your check is ready to be picked up. 

The percentage you receive is determined by the net sales of individual items as it relates to our commission rates. To see our commission rates, click here!

“Net Sales” refers to the price at which an item sells for after any price reductions per our terms stated in our contract. Net sales are based on individually priced items, not the total value of a group of consignment. 

Our goal is to sell your items at full price. However, there is a chance that your items may be discounted per the price reduction terms in our contract for reasons such as damages, promotions or coupons. 

Of course! You may pick up as much as $49.99 per month. 

Yes! You can use as much of your consignment balance towards a purchase as you want, as many times as you want!
