Do you have a designer wardrobe bursting at the seams that your friends constantly raid and your colleagues admire?
If like the rest of our stylish sellers already signed up to our website, you’d like your ‘worn once’, ‘two sizes too small’ or ‘what was I thinking?!’ outfits to go to a new loving home, while raising a little cash for the new bag fund at the same time, we want to hear from you!
It’s exciting times at BuyMyWardrobe HQ and our new investment means lots of developments are in the pipeline.
The first addition to our online marketplace is the new seller application system. For anyone that has applied in the last few months, gone are days of emailing photo’s and inputting codes to unlock your membership! We now have a form which allows you to create your profile, and begin adding your product listings for us to review. Once we are satisfied with the information, one click of the approval button will then activate your seller profile and advertise your items for sale with immediate effect (to save you doing it twice, hooray!)
It’s still a work in progress, with improvements and changes that will be made along the way, but here are the most important factors you need to supply if you’re thinking of submitting an application:
We know some of you lovely ladies are shy, but a good quality stylish photo of yourself (or a company logo for businesses) is essential, so that customers can see who they’re buying from. We’re aiming to create a trusted network to buy and sell, so ‘real’ women with ‘real’ profiles is what we’re all about. Just a little tip – the website template crops images to a square, so head and shoulders work best.
This doesn’t have to be your whole life story. Just a little insight into who you are, what you do, where you love to shop and who your style icons happen to be (even embarrassing ones like Madonna if you like!) make it as interesting as you can, as “I love shopping” just won’t cut it! Add this information under the ‘details’ section of your account.
Once you have submitted your contact details, the seller application system allows you to begin creating item listings, which will be visible to us to review. If we like what we see then we can hit the approval button and your items will go live on the website for sale.
Our focus is on high end designer and luxury brands, although we do accept certain quality high street labels including Reiss, LK Bennett, Kurt Geiger, Karen Millen etc.
If we have any further questions or tips for you regarding your application, we may be in touch for additional details and information. Also, bear with us, as it’s a brand new system don’t worry if you don’t hear back from us straight away – we’ll be in touch shortly!
