In a team meeting a few weeks ago, Leslie, Emily, Jennie, Anika and some others said, “You know what would be great - if I got notified when a seller drops the price of an item I have loved.” And so we decided to build this little nugget of a feature.
Sellers: want your buyers to come back and check your item out? Consider dropping the price, and people who have loved that item will be emailed to come check it out. And, your items will be featured on the new “Sale” tab that is prominently displayed on the site. Learn more about how you can do this here: “How do I modify an existing listing?”
Buyers: act fast when you receive these price drop emails! These items will sell fast.
So go on, and love some items! You could get lucky and score a deal on the item :)
Wishing all the mothers in our community (including our own!) a very happy Mother’s Day! Have a mom-ism to share? Leave them in the comments below!
Alright ladies, it’s time to get real. Like, really real. Here at TF HQ we’re working triple time to build a community of amazing women who feel comfortable buying from and selling to each other based on mutual trust and respect. But every once in a while, someone comes along who isn’t really on the same page. Maybe it’s intentional and maybe it’s not, but they’re going against our policies and giving us a serious case of the sads. “But Threadflip,” you say, “what are you talking about?” Here are two examples:
A buyer approaches you about an item you have listed and asks you to send it to an international address in exchange for payment via Moneygram. You send your item but the Moneygram never arrives.
You place an order with a seller. She then messages you, letting you know she only conducts business via PayPal. You agree and send the funds but the item never shows up.
So spread the word, lovelies! We’re a sweet bunch but we’re prepared to get tough on the bad guys. If you come across a user attempting to take your money or your items off Threadflip, holler! Our capes are on and we’re ready to vanquish the villains to keep TF the best place to buy and sell your fabulous fashions! :)
We’re often asked, ‘How can I make sure that gals in the community are finding my awesome items?’. Great question, right? So we’ve put together a list of easy actions that we suggest sellers take to make the most of their Threadflip experience!
First, leverage your existing networks! Chances are you’re on Facebook, or Twitter, or Instagram, or Pinterest, or Tumblr, or Vine or any combination of the many social platforms out there. What better way to boost your closet’s visibility than to promote it to people who are already interested in what you have to share? You’ll find our social sharing buttons after listing an item or on your item’s page below the cover photo. It’s easy and can boost your sales up to 300%! Visit your closet to get started!
Next, make a friend or 500! One of the best things about Threadflip is our community of wonderful, stylish girls. Liking and commenting on items and following users is a great way to connect with other Threadflippers with similar tastes to your own and bring more eyes (and followers) to your closet!
Finally, like we always say, stay tuned! Our team’s looking forward to introducing new community features to share your items to your followers and the feed! Follow us on Twitter to stay in the know! :)
Here at TF HQ we have lots of love for our girl Mother Nature! In anticipation of Earth Day tomorrow, here are a few ways to lead a more stylishly sustainable life:
- Shop pre-loved threads. There are so many vintage and contemporary gems just waiting to be discovered!
- Know where your clothes come from. Was the manufacturing process eco-friendly?
- Upcycle! Tailor or DIY pieces that have potential but don’t get any wear in their current state. Check out our friend Brit’s blog for some fun ideas.
- Buy for quality. Disposing of less threads = less trash piling up in our landfills.
- And of course, donate or flip items that no longer fit you to give them a chance in another closet!
Are you a conscious consumer? We’d love to hear your tips and tricks!
