OUR PROCESS

We take items in on a consignment basis. Payouts are completed once per month, after items are sold. The consignor receives a percentage of each item sold. If items are not sold, they will automatically be donated to a local charity. If the consignor does not wish to donate their unsold items, it is up to the consignor's discretion to pick up the items within 60 days of the agreement being signed. If the items are not picked up within 60 days, the items will automatically become the property of Preloved Ottawa.

RATES

The consignor receives 40% of the sale price for each item under $100, and 50% for each item over $100.
