Consigning Policies

** What merchandise will be accepted and how it will be priced is determined by the staff of Upscale Resale and Consignment.

 

Consignor Sign-up Fee: FREE! There is NO Consignor Sign- Up Fee

Check Payment:  Consignor receives 50% of the selling price.  The remaining 50% goes to Upscale Resale

In-Store Credit Option: Consignors who choose to receive in-store credit as opposed to payment by check receive 60% of the final selling price.

Item Processing Fee:  There will be a $1 fee per item added to the price to cover maintenance, labeling, stocking, price reduction, etc. 

Consignment Cycle: Items are kept in the store for 90 days and are subject to donation after the 90th day. Consignors wanting unsold merchandise back are responsible for pulling their own merchandise before the end of the 90 days plus a 10 day grace period, no exceptions. Consignor forfeits ownership of items not collected within the grace period. All Items are subject to discretionary markdowns during the consignment period.

Settlement: It is the full responsibility of the consignor to manage their account by checking in and settling their accounts.  After the 90-day consignment cycle, consignors have another 10 days to pick up any final payment, giving consignors a total of 100 days to receive payment from items sold. After this time, any earnings become a store credit. There is no expiration date on this store credit. Consignor payouts are available at the first of each month following the sale of the item. For example, if an item sells on April 7, a check can be picked up on May 1.

Possession of Items: We will take exceptional care of the articles you consign; however, merchandise is left at your own risk. Upscale Resale is not liable for loss of consigned articles through fire, theft, vandalism or natural disaster.
