If you’re within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) we have a pick-up service charge of $50 to inspect the product at your convenience! Or you can drop-off the item at our pop-up location in Mississauga. When your item is ready to consign, Designer Swap will inspect, professionally photograph, and post each item with a description and images of the item.

We are not able to accept items with missing or illegible serial numbers/date codes. If an item has been repaired or re-dyed, it must have been done so at a factory authorized repair center.

Clothing:
We accept new and gently worn items, based on style and designer. Items must be free of stains, excessive wear, tears, and odors. Items must be dry-cleaned with the dry-cleaning tag attached.

• Good 6/10 – Handbags or shoes may have some scuffs exterior or interior, accessories might have scratch marks and apparel might show signs of age.

First, we look into the retail value of the item. We then ask the consignor what price they want from it and we work around your price. We want you to get the most out of it but please do keep in mind that over time the value of the items decreases, and depending on the condition and the high demand. Once we figure out the selling price you get 60% of the selling price.

The consignment period is 120 days from the day we publish your item on-line. We will send you an email reminder at the end of the term. If the item is not sold by then we will ask the consignor to review the contract to either reduce the price and extend the contract, arrange a pick-up or the shipping cost to send the item back if requested. However, if the consignor does not respond 14 days after the expired term, the item will then belong to Designer Swap. We will have the rights to re-post the item at a discounted price and/or donate it.

Designer Swap only sells 100% authentic designer items and does not accept counterfeit items. All items are thoroughly inspected and authenticated by a professional expert prior to being published on-line. Designer Swap’s team make certain that the item is indeed how it was depicted from the seller’s photos and descriptions that is sent through email. Items that are counterfeit will be confiscated, reported and a fee of $20 per item is charged.
