Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need resale experience?
Chevron

Yes! Not only that, this role is a fit for people who genuinely enjoy buying and selling pre-owned stuff. You should be fluent and experienced with the end-to-end selling process on sites like Facebook Marketplace. That means taking photos, writing descriptions, managing listings on various sites, and ultimately selling items directly to buyers.

How do I create a Resella profile?
Chevron

Click here to let us know where you’re located and what type of selling experience you have. With just a little bit of info, we can help you figure out if this is the right gig for you.

If this role is a fit, eventually you’ll upload a photo, schedule a live onboarding with Sella, and pass a background check—all standard stuff that you’d expect when signing up on a site like Care.com or Airbnb.

How do I get items from sellers?
Chevron

Resellas can browse through orders to see what customers have to sell and the commission rate offered. When you see a set of items that are in your wheelhouse, just tap to accept the order and message the customer.

After you and a customer match, we’ll charge them an Upfront Deposit, which is one way we make sure they’re serious about selling. Then it’s up to you to schedule a meet-up and collect the items you’re selling. For Mail-In customers, we’ll take care of sending them a prepaid shipping label, so you can sit back and wait for their items to arrive at your home.

How important are 5-star reviews?
Chevron

Being a Resella is a bit like being a rideshare driver, dog walker, or Airbnb host: reviews matter! If a customer is choosing between multiple Resellas, they’ll use the reviews on your profile to see if you have the chops they’re looking for. 

With that said, everyone has to start somewhere, and you can match with customers without any reviews on your profile—just include a friendly note and you’ll be all set! You can also get reviews by hitting up your local community and recruiting customers who already know you. Pro tip: you’ll earn extra for referring customers as well!

How do I know people won’t give me junk to sell?
Chevron

Trust us—this is a huge issue when you offer to sell stuff for people! 🤣 You’d be surprised (or maybe you wouldn’t) how often people say, “Can’t I just drop off everything in my garage and have you figure it out?”

A core part of our service is vetting customers, their items, and their expectations, all before you ever see them. After working with thousands of customers, we’ve settled into a process of phone calls, photos, emails, and intake videos, all to make sure every item is truly worth selling and people have realistic expectations about the value of their items.

How do I price items?
Chevron

Pricing can be tricky. You need the flexibility to negotiate with buyers, but customers need to feel confident that the price won’t drop too low. Fortunately, we’ve figured out a system of guardrails that’s worked for thousands of customers and Resellas:

First, we present customers with examples of real-world, recent sales of items that are identical, or highly similar, to the things they’re hoping to sell. Then, based on those sales, we’ll work with them to set an initial Asking Price and a Walk-Away Price.

The Asking Price is meant to be at the high end of what someone would realistically pay. We don’t want to go too high, or you won’t get any offers, but when this price is just high enough, there’s room for some negotiation with buyers who want a “deal.”

The Walk-Away Price is, as it sounds, the absolute lowest offer you can accept during negotiations. This gives customers the clarity and control they need to feel comfortable with the process.

When you browse orders, you’ll be able to view the Asking Price and Walk-Away Price the customer has agreed to, in addition to the commission rate. This way, you know we’ve fully vetted a customer and their items, and you can get a good sense of your earning potential.

We invite Resellas to give input on pricing, too (especially if you have unique experience with a type of item!), but Sella takes the lead in order to help customers form realistic expectations.

Do I just sell things like I normally would, e.g. on Facebook?
Chevron

Yep, exactly! We’ve got tips and tricks to share, but you should already be super comfortable selling on local-meetup sites, like Facebook Marketplace, OfferUp and Craigslist, as well as marketplaces with national reach, like Poshmark and eBay, where you’ll offer shipping to buyers.

Do I take pics, write listings, and post items myself? Do I negotiate with buyers?
Chevron

Yes, Resellas are responsible for all tasks related to reselling. You’ll be trusted by customers to create high-quality listings that showcase items in the best possible light, and you’ll also negotiate with buyers, answer buyer questions, and receive payment for the item—just as if you were selling items for yourself. Your customers can view your listings and may offer suggestions, but ultimately, you’re the reselling expert! Flex your creativity and skill to get items sold.

What if I’m missing information about an item I’m selling?
Chevron

Hit up Google for standard product info (like whether a video camera is 4k or not), or the seller for personal details (like how long they owned it and whether they’re the first owner).

What sites should I sell things on?
Chevron

You can use any apps or sites you want, e.g. Poshmark, eBay, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, private Facebook groups or community email lists, a local newspaper classifieds section, etc. 

How much do I earn when an item sells?
Chevron

You’ll earn a commission for every sale you make. The default commission rate is 25%, but you’ll see some orders with higher commission rates (like 50% for 10 items of mid-value clothing) and some with lower rates (like 15% for a Macbook Pro 2022). 

For a $1,500 Macbook @ a 15% commission, your commission earnings would be $225.

For a $150 pair of jeans @ 40% commission rate, your earnings would be $60.

Sella makes money by collecting a service fee from your total commission (more below 👇).

What’s Sella’s revenue share of Resella earnings?
Chevron

Our service fee is:

35% for earnings from first-time customers
25% for earnings from repeat customers who have given you a 5-star review

This structure perfectly aligns our interests with yours: we only make money when you make money, so if there’s any way we can help you earn more, we’re on it! Speaking of which…

Can I make money doing other hourly services?
Chevron

Yes! In addition to reselling, you can set your own hourly rate and offer services like helping customers organize and declutter a garage (great way to find more things to sell!), or running low-value items to Goodwill.

You can also offer your customers curbside pickup on a case-by-case basis, with variable  rates. For example, you could accept $10 to pick up an iPad and a Macbook from a customer 2 miles away, but you might want $100 to pick up a drum set from across town. 

For hourly services and local pickups, you set your rate and negotiate the details with your customers. Once you complete the work, we take care of charging the customer’s credit card and providing a receipt, and then we deduct our service fee and send you your net earnings.

Does Sella offer any incentives for referrals?
Chevron

Yep! You can earn a 20% revenue share* for each Resella or customer you refer to Sella. We think that’s a pretty sweet deal! Once you're onboarded as a Resella, you’ll automatically be enrolled in our Affiliate Marketing Program and get access to online and physical referral materials, so it’s a snap to spread the word and start earning.

* You'll get 20% of whatever Sella earns in service fees from referred customers and Resellas during the first 6 months after they register. That means if Sella makes $100, we'll send you $20.

What if I accidentally drop an item, or it’s lost by UPS when I ship to a buyer?
Chevron

When an item is lost or damaged, you and the customer are protected by Sella.

First, Sella will pay out your customer, just as though the item sold. Whew! Easy peasy. They’re happy and protected, and you’re not on the hook for a $2,000 camera lens that vanished into the ether of the USPS.

Next, we’ll work with you to try to recoup as much value as possible by selling damaged items “as is” and filing relevant claims with UPS, eBay, etc. Once all is said and done, you’ll only be responsible for 20% of any remaining loss, and Sella will cover the other 80%. You definitely need to handle items with care—store them away from chewy pets, package them safely before shipping, etc. —but we want you to feel excited when you get a $2,500 camera to sell, not anxious!

What happens if something goes wrong with a customer?
Chevron

This really shouldn’t happen, but occasionally a tough customer will slip through our vetting process. If you're fed up with a customer, Sella can help you unmatch with your customer and transfer their order to another Resella. Your safety and comfort are super important to us, and life’s too short to work with jerks. We evaluate every situation on a case-by-case basis, but if someone makes you uncomfortable for any reason, we’ve got your back.

How and when do I get paid for sold items?
Chevron

When you sell an item, you’ll be the one collecting money from the buyer in cash, via an app like Venmo, or as a payout from a 3rd party marketplace like Poshmark. So you’ll be paid… immediately!

Once you record the sale on your Resella dashboard, we’ll calculate your commission and let you know (1) how much of the cash to keep, and (2) how much cash you need to send to your customer for the sale and (3) how much Sella will collect for its service fee. When sending cash to your customer for a sale, you can use whatever agreed-upon payment app you want, like Venmo or Zelle.

How and when do I get paid for hourly services?
Chevron

As soon as you complete the work, Sella will charge your customer’s credit card. Once the charge has settled, we’ll deduct our service fee and send you your earnings via an electronic transfer (e.g. PayPal or Venmo).
