    DESCRIPTION

    You’ll be asked to fill out few sections:

    Short descripiton means what your item is e.g.: Levi’s Adele Denim Jacket/ Camilla playsuit. To avoid having 100’s of denim jackets come up in searches – make your listing stand out and include the style name or some other point of difference

     

    The longer description is a spot for you for extra information like fabric, fit, features and condition. It’s a good idea to say how you find the fit e.g.: if it’s a small which would suit up to a size 12 – say so. And if it’s a 10 that really only fits a size 8, say so. You might find it easier to say what size you are and how it works for you. “I’m a size 10 and this dress fits me well at the top but is a bit loose at the waist and I like to style it with a belt”. Give a few styling tips and some inspiration BUT you only get 500 characters so make the most of them.

    PRICING

    First figure out your rental price, per rental period. This is entirely up to you to negotiate with the lender. If it’s a formal dress you may organise a rental period of a few weeks and if it’s a party outfit just the week-end.

     

    One of the easiest ways to set your price, think of how much it cost and charge a percentage. We recommend charging between 1/4 to 1/3 of the RRP. Of course, there are other factors affecting price – it may be sold out, rare, vintage or custom made, all of which could justify a higher rental fee. On the other hand if there is some wear and tear to the item the price should be decreased accordingly.

     

    This is a guide only and you can adjust the prices at any time. Maybe start a bit lower so your listing looks good value for money and go from there.

    REPLACEMENT VALUE

    We ask you to list a replacement value when you list your item in case it is damaged or lost and needs to be replaced. If it’s brand new and you’ve only worn it a few times, it’s OK to put in the amount you paid. If you’ve worn/rented it multiple times, it’s not fair to expect someone to pay the full replacement value.

     

    If it is sold out or a collector's item the replacement value may be the same or higher than the RRP.

     

    You can negotiate this with each other and an easy way to be prepared for that conversation is to have a look online to see what it is being sold for.

     

    We recommend if the item is damaged beyond to an extent that it can no longer be rented, it is "sold" to the lender whereby they can then sell it to recoup some money back.

    PHOTOS

    Great photos are really important. You can pop up to five photos per item. Make sure your photos reflect your style and show off your product to its best. We recommend front, back and side shots and some of it’s best details. This may be a close-up of the fabric or detail. A fully styled shot will also provide inspiration. There are a few filters you can use to make your photo pop, otherwise, do some editing on iPhoto. Just make sure your photos look like a true representation of the colours.

    DRAFT

    If you’re not 100% happy with your listing you can save it as a draft and come back to it later.
