No Seller Fees For the First Time Ever 💥#ReverseBlackFriday

We’re flipping the switch this Black Friday. To encourage cleanout over consumption, we’re waiving ALL seller fees on new items listed from Friday, Nov 25 through Sunday, Nov 27.

#ReverseBlackFriday

Over 85% of textiles produced end up in landfills. In America alone, that amounts to about 81 lbs of clothing per person, yearly. With Reverse Black Friday, we’ve envisioned a fun way to keep fashion out of landfills and help folks earn extra money for the holidays.

This is the perfect time to do something about that pile of clothes you don’t wear anymore… the ones that you’ve been meaning to do something about for months. List any item on Curtsy from Friday, Nov 25 through Sunday, Nov 27 with no seller fees.

Questions about Reverse Black Friday?

Check out our FAQ below or send us an email at [email protected]

  • When is the promotion? You can start listing items for zero seller fees anytime on November 25. All items must be listed by midnight November 27th to have no fees
  • What are seller fees normally? Our seller fees are $1 + 5% of sale price + 2.9% payment processing fee
  • Are seller fees waived for all items? Yes, all items that are typically allowed on Curtsy are included in this promotion. You can read our Seller FAQ to learn more about what items we allow on Curtsy
  • What if the item sells after the promotion ends? If you list an item from Nov 25 through Nov 27, it won’t ever have seller fees, no matter when it sells
  • Are you also doing a typical Black Friday sale? To encourage cleanout over consumption, our only Black Friday promotion is to waive seller fees 11.25 – 11.27 🙂
  • Is there a limit to the amount I can post? Nope! You can post as many items as you’d like
  • Do I need to do anything to get no seller fees? Nope! As long as you list your items from Nov 25 through Nov 27, your items will automatically have zero seller fees
  • Does this affect the items I already have listed on Curtsy? Our Black Friday promotion is only for new items listed on Curtsy and does not affect any items you already have listed
  • Can I make drafts before Friday Nov 25 to post during the promotion? Any draft made before Friday Nov 25 will still have seller fees.

Happy listing!

Today we’re launching Try Ons: It’s like TikTok for resale

Try Ons are a new way to shop and sell with video. Scroll, shop, and list videos, seamlessly in the app.


Read WWD’s feature story about Curtsy’s new Try On feature: https://wwd.com/business-news/technology/curtsy-video-fashion-resale-1235293389/

We believe the future of resale is video

Shopping resale and selling your clothes online shouldn’t be hard. Try Ons create a unique way for sellers to show their clothes in action, letting buyers easily see all the details of the item.

We’re launching Try Ons because we believe it’s a faster way to post items, and, they’ll sell sooner because buyers can easily see the material and fit of items. 

While a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth a thousand pictures.

How Do Try Ons Work?

When you post your item, you’ll see a new Try On option to add a video to your listing, alongside the current photos option. You can list an item with photos, a Try On video, or you can add both!

The best way to show your item is to model it so buyers can see how the item fits. You can also show the item on a hanger, or a simple surface, if you don’t want to model it. This works well for things like sneakers, accessories, or any items that no longer fit!

Pro tips for taking videos

  • Make sure the item is in full view
  • Good lighting is key so you can see the item clearly
  • Include a clip showing any damage or flaws
  • Zoom in on the item to show details and multiple angles

Here’s what our users are saying

We’re so excited to share this feature and hope you have as much fun using it as we did creating it. If you’d like more info, watch our video or send us a message in the app. 

We know the Try On feature may not be perfect from day one, so we’d love to hear from you on how we can continue to improve it ([email protected]).

We’re excited for your feedback!

Cheers 🥰

3 Trending Winter Aesthetics for 2022

A new season calls for new fashion aesthetics! At Curtsy, we are always keeping up with trends to keep YOU up with the styles worn by fashion and TikTok girls (and maybe even become one yourself). For Winter 2022, it’s all about layering, staying warm and keeping it basic while also keeping those sequins and glitter pieces from New Year’s Eve in rotation! 

From the preppy vibes of Academia Style, Romantic Ballet and Dollette Core to flashy and fun Euphoria inspo, here are the 3 trending winter aesthetics for 2022 to know (and wear).

📚Pre-academia

This style is layers on layers on layers! If we’re being honest, the base of the Academia aesthetic has never really been out of style – it just reinvents itself with the times. Think Blair Waldorf meets literature student reading a romance novel under a tree (lol).

If you love wearing neutral tones, oversize blazers over button ups and turtlenecks, pleated skirts and trousers, loafers, tights and neutral bows or chunky headbands – you may be into the Academia aesthetic. It is such an easy style to replicate with items we all probably have in our closets because they are capsule staples!

🌟Euphoria Inspired

We are pretty sure you already know EXACTLY where we are headed with the Euphoria aesthetic because it’s one of the most talked about shows in the last two years! Although the aesthetic needs no explanation, all we have to say is pretend it is New Years Eve everyday!

Expression is the number one word that comes to mind when the Euphoria aesthetic is mentioned. Not only does each character wear their hearts on their sleeves, but their entire personality can be seen the moment they step on screen. From glittery, bright eyeshadow to cutout dresses and low waisted pants – dress like the party never ends!

Love this aesthetic? Shop hand-selected pieces in our Euphoria Inspired List >

🎀 Romantic Core

When you think of lace, tulle, pink roses, fresh flowers, lots of blush on your cheeks and nose and the color pink, a Romantic aesthetic girl is probably not too far behind! Instead of the off-duty model, think off-duty dancer in wrap tops, elevated athleisure, ballet flats or UGG’s and anything that reminds you of a doily on the dining table! 

The Romantic aesthetic is all about soft and cute pieces. Terms like Dollette, Coquette and Ballet Core describe someone who loves this aesthetic.

20 Tips to Ship: The Curtsy Shipping Guide

You know the old saying…ship happens! You’ve just sold something on Curtsy and now the only thing standing between you and scoring extra cash in your Curtsy Wallet is shipping. We’re here to show you that shipping is easy. Straight from our customer support team to you – here’s tips to becoming a shipping queen! With this shipping guide you’ll ship easy and have buyers (and USPS) coming back for more!

The 1-2-3-4 of Shipping

  1. Print out the shipping label we email to you or request a label to be mailed to you 
  2. Pack your item in any small box or envelope, or use our Shipping Kit
  3. Give your package to USPS, schedule a pickup, or drop it in a USPS bin 
  4. Be sure to mark your sale as “Shipped” in the app and you get paid once it ships! 

For more details check out our Shipping FAQ Page

Label Tips: We’re into labels

  1. Print your label: Regular size 8 1/2 paper or label sticker works just fine!
  2. Use the link from Curtsy to print so the label is clear (not a photo of a photo).
  3. No printer? No problem! When creating your pre-paid label, tap “request label via mail”. We’ll mail your label the next business day, and you’ll receive it within 5-7 business days! Request a label soon after you sell to avoid delays.
  4. You can also find a printer near you at a print shop, school, friend’s house or public library.

Packaging Tips: Wrap it up

  1. Pack up your item, any small box or envelope will do!
  2. Order our Shipping Kit: Don’t worry about finding a box! Buy a shipping kit and we’ll send you mailers to have for your next sale.
  3. Sustainable packaging: Reuse a box or envelope (Yes, even an Amazon box). Remember to remove or cover old labels and tape. 

💡Pro tip: In a pinch? Flip a previously used mailer inside out. What’s old is new again!

  1. Tape on your label, but DON’T tape over the barcode (it’s harder for USPS to scan over tape).
  2. Use tissue paper and padding on fragile items like sunglasses and jewelry, and to keep your items from moving around in the box.
  3. Keep it clean: Make sure items are dirt free and match your listing.
  4. Take photos of your item before and after packaging for your own records.

Personalization Tips: Be a little extra

  1. Add in a thoughtful thank you note, sticker, or extra gift with your package as a fun surprise for the buyer.
  2. Draw doodles on the package for a nice touch.

Drop off Tips: Options to Ship it!

  1. Let USPS come to you: You can schedule a pickup with USPS using this link, and USPS will come to you! 
  2. Drop off at the post office: Leave your package with a clerk inside USPS, and be sure to get a receipt for your records!
  3. Use a blue USPS drop box: Drop your package in any USPS dropbox near you! (This option can sometimes come with increased delays, so try the options above first if you can! Be sure to snap a quick pic of the info on the drop box too!)

Quick Guide to a Winter Closet Clean Out

Who says you have to save your big closet clean out until Spring? The sun is officially setting later each day, so it’s the perfect time to take advantage of the burst of energy that comes with a bit of extra daylight! ✨

I have three easy steps you can follow to clean out your closet for this Winter season AND help you play your part in circular fashion* for years to come (*a sustainable approach to fashion where clothes are reused and recycled in endless amounts of ways, instead of throwing them away). ♻️

🔎 Figure out what’s already working

Imagine your closet as a place you can emerge from each day with a layer of armor that helps you take on the world  💪. I know that might seem impossible with a prom dress stuffed in the corner, or an old winter coat blocking the flared corduroy pants you just bought – but that’s all background noise for now! Time to take a deep breath and figure out what does work first. 

First, ask yourself how you want to look and feel this season, and set aside the basics and classics that’ll fulfill that vision 👁️‍🗨️. Now comes the fun part – what are some unique gems buried in your closet that will show the world your outfits are made for you and no one else? Set these aside too! (Need some help? Make a 2022 vision board).

The answers might come right away – but if they don’t, you can always keep mental notes over a week or two on the pieces you are drawn to/wear the most, and set those aside in your closet 💭

💚 Make your space sustainable

If anything is constant, it’s change, but creating a space where you can cycle through changes and evolve will help you stay grounded for the long run. To keep the closet clean out momentum going throughout the year (and the year after that 🤩), try setting aside an area for all things resell. This could be a section of your closet, a corner of a room, or even an attic space, where you go to decide what you want to donate, resell, and buy for yourself. You can set up some warm lighting, a full-length mirror to try out different looks (and model items to list on Curtsy! 📸), and a cozy chair or floor pillow to pack up your sales and browse for those hidden gems (bonus points if you call this your Curtsy Corner 😉).

💎 Thrift Your Dream Closet

At this point, you probably can’t wait to level up your winter wardrobe with key pieces – like the perfect pair of platform Converse to go with your distressed dad jeans. But after taking inventory of what works, note what’s desperately needed. Maybe you’re way more comfortable in oversized denim this year instead of bombers. 

Made it a goal to work out more? Why not treat yourself to Lululemon leggings in your favorite color? Or maybe you’ve picked up painting again and want a cute patterned bandana to keep your hair out of your eyes while you focus. Whichever items you end up thrifting, they’ll mean a lot to the person you’re working hard each day to become 🎇

By cleaning out the old and creating a closet space you want to keep going back to, you’ll turn sustainable fashion into a practice for life 🌍💙

    I am a recent homeowner and am in the process of buying new furniture for my rooftop deck!
  • What is your top seller tip?
    Include free shipping to your posts. What the buyer sees is what the price actually is. It makes for a much better experience for the buyer and seller especially when you are negotiating prices when shipping is already included in the price.

#extendthetrend Curtsy Comeback INSPO Trending

Y2K Trends Making a Comeback in 2022

Every year it seems like another trend we collectively decided to get rid of a decade before becomes the IT clothing item to wear. At Curtsy, we are always trying to stay one step ahead so we are ready to dig out those Y2K comeback trends from the back of our closets and wardrobes! In 2022 there are already some expected trends to return from the 90s like, the puffer jacket, yoga pants and our personal fave – UGG! If you’re looking to achieve the full Y2K aesthetic, read on for our 3 style tips.

Puffer Everything

The puffer coat has gone in and out of style for years – literally DECADES! So it’s no surprise that it’s back on all the physical and virtual shelves. In the 2022 version of puffers, there are vests, bomber jackets, calf and ankle length in an assortment of colors. You can find all of our available Puffer options for Winter 2022 here on Curtsy! Our go-to brands for puffers are Aritzia, ZARA and Urban Outfitters.

Yoga Pants

If you can remember back to the middle (or high) school days, you were DEFINITELY wearing yoga pants. Probably with a low waist and some branded logo on the back. While we hung up our black yoga pants in the early 2000s, they are making quite the comeback in 2022. If you’d like to add some back into your wardrobe this year, you can shop them here on Curtsy! Some of our fave brands for yoga pants are Aerie, Lululemon and Alo Yoga.

UGG brand

A comeback that truly needs no introduction – UGG Brand is back and better than ever! When they first gained popularity, EVERYONE and their mom had a pair and the long length was the only way to go! Now in 2022, mini is in – the shorter the better! Some trending styles this year are the UGG Disquette, Funkette, Coquette, Bailey Bow, and the Classic Ultra Mini. If you got rid of your Uggs from the 90s, but want to bring them back, here’s what we have on Curtsy!
