The ThredUP Return Policy Made Easy

If the company approves your return, you will have to pay $1.99 for a restocking fee.

How Will Your Payment Be Refunded?

ThredUp has three refund methods you can choose from:

Refund MethodDescription
ThredUP store creditA free shipping label will be offered if you choose this refund method. The refund will be in the form of non-cashable ThredUP store credit. Transactions paid with ThredUP’s store credit can only be refunded as store credit
Other payment methods with shipping labelsThe money will be sent to your original payment method. ThredUP will deduct $8.99 from your refund as a fee for the shipping label
Other payment methods without shipping labelsYou are responsible for your own return shipping cost and arrangement, so keep your receipt and the tracking number. The refund will be credited to your original payment method

Store credit payments will be refunded to your account within 5–7 days of ThredUP receiving the item. For other payment methods, it may take additional 3–5 business days to receive a refund. Original shipping fees are non-refundable.

Keep in mind that items marked as Final Sale (such as handbags) can’t be returned.

The ThredUP Return Policy on Goody Boxes

ThredUP has a special return policy for Goody Box purchases. If you see an item you don’t want from the Goody Box, you have only one week after receiving the parcel to return it.

Ensure that your return arrives before the seventh day so that ThredUP can scan the goods before the deadline. Missing the timeframe can result in your Goody Box being charged in full. If this happens to you, contact ThreadUP’s customer support and provide your order number.

If you need more time to return Goody Box merch, you can ask for a time extension from your Orders page before the deadline. Late returns are evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and you might be charged a $3 late fee for each item.

Keep in mind that Goody Box refunds are not guaranteed, and the initial $10 deposit is non-returnable.
