3. Price and label

The price of your items is up to you. Here are a few general guidelines on pricing based on experience:

 

  • In general, the lower you price your items, the more likely they will sell. Take into account the brand, age and condition of the item when you are pricing them.

  • Items in great condition generally go for 30-50% of their original retail price - clothing usually goes for slightly less depending on the brand.

  • As you price merchandise, ask yourself: "How much would I be willing to pay for this?"

  • Books tend to sell for 5-30 RMB, not much more. Depending on size and if it is hard cover or not.

  • Baby clothes (bodies/onesies, tops or pants) you can put 3 or more together and price as one item.

For example: Set of 3 onesies for 10 RMB

General rules and steps for dropping off your items:

  • It would be helpful, if you could sort your items in your bags or boxes before drop off time. Sort them by books, games, toys, shoes and clothes by gender and if possible by age.

  • Drop-off will take approximately 10 minutes if you have followed the rules regarding clean items and correct labeling. Allow enough time in case there is a brief wait. Sometimes many sellers arrive at the same time.  We plan on being very thorough and will look at each item carefully. Anyone with more than 150 items needs to plan in some extra time.

  • If you send your Driver or Ayi, please make sure they stay until we tell them to go.

  • Please be prepared to assemble any pack-n-plays or other large items and you need to show our volunteers how strollers or car seats work when your drop them off. Shoppers probably won’t buy something that they have not seen assembled or don't know how it works.
