Return Process

Submit a return request

Return any item you’ve purchased on Tradesy and have not used or worn (except items marked Final Sale) for Tradesy Site Credit. You must file a Return Request within 4 days of delivery.

If the item you received was not sold as described or is inauthentic, you may file a Misrepresentation Claim to request a full refund. For items not eligible for return, you can relist on Tradesy and sell the item to another buyer.

Print a free return shipping label

After submitting a Return Request, you can print your free Return Shipping Label from your Purchases page. Pack the item carefully using your own shipping materials and apply the label to the outside of the package. Make sure to secure the item in its packaging, as you’re responsible for delivering it to us in the same condition you received it in.

Your return will be processed and inspected within 7 days of delivery to Tradesy (usually much sooner), and you’ll be notified via email when your Tradesy Site Credit is available. Use it to buy something new to love!

Misrepresentation Claims

Get what you ordered, or your money back

Tradesy only allows the sale of authentic designer fashion. Our system automatically detects designer replicas with 99.7% accuracy, so you can shop for designer brands like Louis Vuitton and Chanel with confidence.

Tradesy sellers are required to honestly and accurately represent items in their listings, including all relevant information about size, color, style, and condition.

If you feel unsure about the authenticity of an item you purchased, or believe your item was otherwise misrepresented, you can file a Misrepresentation Claim within 4 days of receiving your order. Head over to your Purchases page to submit your request.

Our Returns and Authentication Team will review your claim. If we determine the item is a designer replica, or was otherwise misrepresented, you’ll get a full refund back to your original payment source.

If the item is deemed authentic and accurately described in the listing, you’ll be issued a Tradesy Site Credit to find something new to love.

Additional Considerations

Final Sale (Non-Returnable) items

Some items are marked Final Sale and cannot be returned for Tradesy Site Credit. If a Final Sale item you purchase is misrepresented by the seller, submit a Misrepresentation Claim within 4 days of delivery to be eligible for a refund.

Items may be marked Final Sale for a number of reasons, including:

  • Price is less than $50.00
  • Listed category is:
    • Weddings
    • Maternity
    • Fragrance
    • Hosiery
    • Swimwear
    • Sports bras
    • Tech accessories
    • Activewear gear
  • Sold at a significant discount from a Tradesy in-house closet
  • Select rare items

Return eligibility

Tradesy cannot process returns that do not follow our guidelines, including:

  • Returns delivered without a return request
  • Returns sent directly back to the seller
  • Returns delivered later than 10 days from request
  • Lost or damaged returns shipped without using our free pre-paid return shipping label
  • An unreasonable amount of return requests submitted under a single user account


Tradesy does not allow order cancellations and all sales are binding. If the seller does not ship your order within 10 days of purchase, you may request a cancellation by contacting us.

Affirm financing

When you order through Affirm you are still covered under our return policy. If you receive a full refund for a Misrepresentation Claim, your agreement with Affirm is voided and you are not obligated to continue paying for the purchase through Affirm. If your return is processed as Tradesy Site Credit, you are still required to complete your payment plan with Affirm.

Return Policy for Sellers

We process returns and pay for shipping — so you don’t have to

Tradesy processes and returns items back to you, free of charge

We do all of the work, so you don’t have to. Tradesy provides customer service for your buyer, covers return shipping and handling, and performs an expert evaluation of every returned item to ensure it’s been handled with care. All returned items are shipped safely back to you at no cost.

Re-list returned items in just seconds

When a buyer returns your item for any reason, we will ship it back to you. You won’t receive any earnings, but your item will be returned in the same condition and you can quickly re-list it for another buyer to love. In fact, 80% of returned items sell a second time!

Seller shipping address policy

Any returned item purchased on Tradesy will be sent back to the Seller’s designated shipping address. If the shipping address listed in your account is outdated or incorrect, however, and you have not responded to Tradesy’s attempts to reach you via the email address listed in your account, after a period of thirty days the item will be deemed abandoned and may be donated to a charity of Tradesy’s choice.

Zero-tolerance fraud policy

Tradesy reserves the right to take action against any seller or buyer that we determine has acted maliciously or fraudulently against Tradesy or any user of the platform. Any seller who has misrepresented an item on Tradesy, or is in violation of any Terms of Use, determined at our discretion, may have their Tradesy access revoked and related earnings withheld. We reserve the right to extract funds from your Tradesy account or charge any payment source on file in order to recover any balance due to Tradesy. In extreme cases of fraud, there may be additional fines, fees, and/or legal action taken under State of California law.
