How do I get paid?2017-01-11T16:51:41+00:00

There are two options – Check or Store Credit. 

One option must be selected at the time of contract and cannot be switched during the term of the contract. (It’s an either-or selection; please select thoughtfully and thoroughly before making your decision)

  • Check Option:
    • Payments to consignor to be made by check must be over $20 with a $1.50 handling fee for each time you are paid
    • Check payments are paid out every other month; on the first day of the month
    • Checks expire after 90-days from issue date
    • Consignor is responsible for picking up their checks at Posh
  • Store Credit Option:
    • If the in-store credit option is selected, you also receive a 10% shopping discount at the time of use of credit/purchase
    • Store credit is available immediately after a consigned item has sold and the credit can be used anytime up to 6-months after contract term ends
    • The $1.50 handling fee is exempt from in-store credit option – saving you more money
    • No payout is available if you choose this option
Do you ever reduce prices?2017-01-11T16:51:19+00:00

All items are initially priced at the selling price when you consign.  Price reductions occur at 30-day intervals and are reduced by 25% – 30% over the lapse of the consignment period.  Consignors will receive 40% of the reduced price and price reductions are made at our discretion.

When my consignment is over, what happens to my items?2017-01-11T16:51:00+00:00

When you consign with us, you will be given and/or emailed a copy of your consigned item list with pricing.  This consigned item list will have the pick-up date specified.  It is your responsibility to contact us before that date to arrange recollection of your items.  Items that do not get collected 5 days after the consignment period ends become property of Posh Upscale Resale or we donate/dispose at our discretion.

How does pricing work?2017-01-11T16:50:41+00:00

Posh determines what items will be accepted based on what sells; Posh has the right to pass on any item. We price items 1/3 to 1/4 of retail based on research we conduct and factoring in the condition of items.

Please note that every attempt will be made to sell consigned items at a fair and competitive price that will benefit you as a consignor and as a customer

Because we price our items very reasonably, please make sure you want to part with the item before consigning it

Can I retrieve my items before my consignment agreement ends?2017-01-11T16:50:19+00:00

If you want to retrieve any of your items within the first 30 days, there is a $5 fee per item

How long do you keep my items?2017-01-11T16:49:34+00:00

Because we are seasonal, we only offer up-to 90-days.  We ask that you bring in items that are only seasonally appropriate. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call. Our seasons are below:

  • Spring: February – April
  • Summer: May – July
  • Fall: August – October
  • Winter: November – January

 

It is the consignor’s responsibility to track and pick-up items before the end of the contract period. Please note:

  • We will not extend the length of the contract
  • We reserve the right to mark-down or put items on sale at any time. Special sales will be established by Posh; once the items have sold, the consignor will receive 40% of the selling price, less sales tax and fees.
  • You are responsible to pick-up your items at the end of the consignment term; any unsold items that are past the consignment term will become the property of Posh Upscale Resale and may be later donated.
