Who can use the Worn Well Exchange?
In our beginning stages, the Worn Well Exchange is only open to customers in the United States. That being said, we realize our customers live all over the globe and it’s a top priority to expand our program as soon as possible to include all of our customers.
How Does Shipping Work?
The buyer covers the shipping costs, and the seller is responsible for shipping the garment. Once the seller submits a listing for approval, a $10 shipping fee will be automatically added to the total price.
When the transaction is complete, we’ll notify the seller via email with a pre-paid USPS shipping label. The seller will then drop off the package at any USPS location or dropbox.
Why use the Worn Well Exchange instead of Poshmark or similar platforms?
When you buy Tradlands from other sellers on other platforms, we are not able to verify its history nor its true condition. Through the Worn Well Exchange, we can ensure an honest transaction from seller to buyer where you can dispute a transaction based on the description of the item.
