Are you feeling the pinch of the recession, yet not willing to sacrifice your style too much? Well, there’s a brand new site waiting to inspire you with the best quality second-hand clothes around. Twice is the hottest new thing in clothing sales and well worth checking out! The prices will astound you, but the quality will be no less than top-notch.
And if you’re looking to sell your clothes, Twice is also the place to go. They’re revolutionising the world of consignment clothing stores by selling used gear online in a neat, searchable way, just like regular online stores. Plus, if you live in the USA, Twice has got sellers covered for postage costs. You just need to send the clothes in and hope they sell.
Twice is the brainchild of some ex-Google employees who needed to try something new. They clearly understand the value of an easy-to-search and easy-to-navigate clothing site and are not afraid to make that work in their favour. They also love used clothes and see it as an easy way to get great quality cheaply. If you do too, you’ll love Twice. Currently, it’s just for women’s clothing, merely because they had to start somewhere. Eventually it will expand to men’s clothing too, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
How It Works
Sellers send in designer gear using pre-paid postage (from within the US) and offer to sell it. Twice make an offer to the seller, and if accepted they measure it according to their standard measuring system, photograph it, then sell it for 70-90% off the retail price, which you can easily see when shopping. Sellers get their money upfront and will be paid by cheque or Paypal. If the item isn’t accepted for sale, they can choose to have it sent back for $5 (within the US) or forwarded to Goodwill for free.
Buyers can navigate the Twice website according to sizes, colours, clothing type, brands, recent additions, etc. and make purchases as they like. Orders of $49 or more warrant free US shipping and can be returned for free within 30 days if necessary.
The brands of items on sale have been very carefully chosen by Twice and they only accept fairly new items in good condition for sale. So, as a buyer, you can rest assured you’re getting an item in great condition and focus on the sizes, styles and brands that you like best. Looking at the sale price compared to the original selling price of that item goes to show you exactly how much of a bargain you’re getting, which makes buying the clothes even more tempting.
Twice As A Consignment Model
This method of collecting clothes for sale and allowing sellers to earn immediately is fantastic for used clothes sales. Hopefully, Twice will expand internationally or similar websites will start to appear worldwide as it really is a system that works for the sellers.
As for buying, any site that makes sizing simple and browsing for particular items easy and pleasant has my vote of confidence. Throw in some serious bargains and you have a fan for life.
