Closet Porter FAQs


What Items Can I Sell On Closet Porter?

We accept listings of luxury designer and high-end high street clothing, shoes and accessories, in great condition only. Please note, due to the high volume of item submissions we receive, we will only only respond to your request if we choose to list the item.

What Items Do You Not Accept?

We do not accept any counterfeit goods, items that are of poor or damaged quality, items that have been altered to fit, or items more than a few seasons old, unless they are sought after Vintage pieces.

What Is The Authentication Process?

Before an item is sent to the buyer, it will pass through our head office where our experts will do a physical check of the item’s quality and authenticity. If the item is found to be counterfeit, or does not match the item description in the listing, it will not be sent to the buyer and all monies will be returned.

How Will My Item Be Priced?

You, the seller, has full control over the pricing of your item, but it will be approved by the Closet Porter team before it is live. We want you to obtain the maximum price for your garment, however, we do recommend it is priced fairly and competitively to achieve a sale, so an overpriced consignment may be rejected.

Can I Change My Mind?

If you no longer wish to sell the item, please get in touch with us at the soonest opportunity so we can remove the listing from Closet Porter.

Do You Take Commission?

Yes, our commission structure rests at 20% for basic sellers, and 30% for VIP Sellers.

How And When Will I Receive Payment?

Once your item has been purchased, the funds will initially be sent to Closet Porter. You will then be required to ship the item to our HQ, at your own cost, for our experts to quality check and authenticate the item. This must be done within 5 days of the purchase, or the sale may be cancelled. Once all checks are passed, we will send the item on to the buyer. The funds will then be released to you, minus our commission.

How Do I Package My Item?

In order to avoid damage to your item, suitable packaging is essential to ensure it arrives in perfect condition. We recommend that you package your item in a postal bag, and use bubble wrap and a rigid box for accessories. We assume items will arrive in the exact condition they are advertised in the listing images. Closet Porter does not accept responsibility for goods damaged in transit, and we advise that items are sent Tracked and with relevent insurance.

Can An Item Be Returned?

The item will be delisted at the purchase price and only a handling fee will be deducted.

How Do You Guarantee Authenticity?

We use a flawless approach to guarantee authenticity that includes quality checks carried out by our in-house experts. Our team examines the garment’s stitching, serial numbers, hardware, fonts and fabrics and highlights any flaws that could point to potential counterfeit issues. In an unlikely event that an item is proven not to be authentic, a full refund will be given.
