    Hi everyone! We’ve gotten an influx of posts asking where folks can buy or sell lululemon secondhand, so wanted to provide a list of resources. Note that I am also based in the US, and while I tried to do my best to make sure this is applicable globally there may be some differences depending on where you are located.

    Poshmark:
    Available in: USA and Canada
    % of sale taken by company: 20%
    Shipping cost: $7.45+
    Pros: Largest number of users and items available, easy to use search function, shipping cost is affordable if buying several items from one seller/a heavier item, has a support team that can help you if you’re scammed
    Cons: High shipping cost for small items, high percentage of sale taken for buyers, buyers can offer any price so lowball offers are common, (for sellers) support is known for siding with buyers during disputes, US and Canadian users cannot ship to one another unless they have an address in the opposite country

    Tip: lululemon return used Some people who don’t know the name of the item will list it generally (ie. “Green lululemon leggings” instead of “grey sage align pants.” So if you’re willing to dig, you may be able to find some gems at a cheap price.

    Mercari:
    Available in: USA
    % of sale taken by company: 12.9% + $. If you adored this write-up and you would like to receive even more facts regarding Lululemon Second hand kindly go to our page. 30 of item price.
    Shipping cost: Chosen by the seller depending on item weight, but starts at $3.65.
    Pros: Cheaper shipping for lighter items compared to Poshmark, ability for buyers to”save searches” if looking for a particular item, has a support team that can help you if you’re scammed, lower fee taken by company compared to Poshmark.
    Cons: Not as many users or items available as Poshmark, support is known for taking a long time to respond to emails (no phone support)
    Unlike Poshmark, buyers can only offer a minimum of 80% of the buyer’s listed item price so you cannot send or receive “lowball” offers. As mentioned above the seller chooses the shipping weight and subsequent cost, but it’s important to make sure that you choose the correct weight. If the package is over the weight you chose, the seller will be charged the difference of the correct weight which can be $7+.

    Depop:
    Available: Worldwide
    % of sale taken by company: 12.9% + $.30 of item price.
    Shipping cost: Depends on item weight and where item is being shipped to.
    Pros: Available worldwide, lower fee taken by company compared to Poshmark, sellers can arrange their own shipping label (normally cheaper than getting a label through Depop).
    Cons: Not every seller will ship internationally, sellers can only provide 4 photos of items, algorithm prioritizes shops with a large following, unlike Poshmark or Mercari they do not require the buyer to receive/approve the item before releasing funds to the seller.

    r/lululemonBST:
    Available: Worldwide
    % of sale taken: 0%, but 3% fee if using PayPal G&S
    Shipping cost: Depends on item weight and where item is being shipped to
    Pros: No selling fee so sellers get more while buyers pay less, requires sellers to prove ownership by posting their username with the item, focused on lululemon clothing specifically
    Cons: No protection for buyer if not using PayPal G&S, tricky for sellers to figure out shipping costs ( especially internationally)

    As mentioned above, figuring out shipping costs when selling outside of an app can be tricky. Shipping labels can be created through PayPal but they won’t give you the cost until the buyer sends you money, so sellers have to estimate shipping costs. It’s listed in the sidebar of the sub, but always, always buy through PayPal G&S. It’s always worth offering to pay the 3% fee in order to protect yourself in the event something goes wrong.

    Facebook BST groups or Facebook Marketplace:
    Available: Worldwide
    % of sale taken: 0%, but 3% fee if using PayPal G&S
    Shipping cost: Depends on item weight and where item is being shipped to.
    Pros: No selling fee so sellers get more while buyers pay less, several different groups to choose from, focused on lululemon clothing specifically
    Cons: No protection for buyer if not using PayPal G&S, items are normally crossposted to multiple groups so it’s hard to know if items are still available, can be difficult to get into certain groups, you have to have a Facebook to use them.

    Ebay:
    Available: Worldwide
    % of sale taken by company: 10%
    Shipping cost: Depends on item weight and where item is being shipped to
    Pros: Buyers can set email alerts for keywords of the items they want to buy, large platform, lower selling fee compared to other apps, support team to help you if you get scammed
    Cons: (For sellers) like Poshmark, support tends to side with buyers during disputes, not lululemon-focused

    Here are some other options I am not familiar with, but wanted to list them out:

    Vinted:
    Available in: Most popular in Germany and France but also available in USA, UK, Spain, Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Lithuania
    % of sale taken by company: Does not take anything from sellers, but buyers pay an extra 5% fee on top of the price.

    Zadaa:
    Available in: Finland, Denmark, Sweden
    % of sale taken by company: 0-12% depending on item plus 1€ per transaction.

    Carousell:
    Available in: Based in Singapore, but also available in Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Taiwan, HK, Macau, Australia, NZ, Canada.
    % of sale taken by company: No fees charged to buyer or seller.

    Curtsy:
    Available in: USA
    % of sale taken by company: 20%, or $3 for items under $1.
    Shipping cost: $4.95 for items under 1lb or $7.95 for all other item.

    please note the following case:
    (1)May be worth adding something to the eBay cons similar to your poshmark note that support always sides with buyers. I have sold multiple NWT items and had them returned to me worn/dirty/without the tags and eBay support doesn’t care. I take pictures the day of shipping every item as a safeguard to confirm the condition and even that isn’t enough. Sorry for the rant…just want to give fair warning to anyone considering selling on eBay.
    eBay pros: can set pretty specific alerts to be notified via email/text if an item you’re interested in gets listed (e.g. diamond dye align shorts, size 4, NWT, under $60.
    (2)Mercari has the seller choose shipping cost, not the buyer! The seller is given a recommendation on shipping cost based on item weight, but weight your items in shipping materials to ensure the weight you’ve chosen is accurate! They will charge you on the backend for not enough postage and the extra cost will be more than the increase in the next weight class when you were originally picking shipping

    If I missed any, please feel free to comment and I’d be happy to add them 🙂
