I WOULD LIKE TO TRADE IN MY CHILD’S CLOTHES FOR CREDIT. HOW DOES IT WORK?
You have to consider giving your child’s clothing a new life ;-).
Check our list of brands of which clothing can be traded in. Of course we accept all brands being sold at Mio Meraki, but also many others (see below this page the list).
Make sure your items doesn’t have stains, holes or buttons missing etc. and then click on the sign-up button to fill out our seller’s form. We will review this form and get back to you within a few business days.
Please note that we cannot accept tights and socks.
Once we confirm with you which pieces to send, we ask that you ship all items within seven days of our confirmation, or bring it to the store in Bussum when you live in the neighbourhood. Upon arrival, we will check your gently used kids clothing and confirm the price within one week.
As soon as the item is accepted, you will receive the shop voucher that you can spend toward any future purchase at Mio Meraki.
HOW MUCH DO I GET FOR THE ITEMS I TRADE-IN?
You will receive a shop credit for the price we sell your item for minus €5 shipping/ handling fee. The price we set for the used items is between 20-35% of the new price.
For example: if you send us a dress that originally cost €100 and it is in a very good condition, we will offer it in the shop for €35. You will receive a credit for €30. For €5, we will take pictures, write product descriptions, wrap and send it to the new family.
IS MIO MERAKI PRELOVED A CONSIGNMENT BUSINESS?
No, you don‘t have to wait for your credit until we have sold the items, we issue the shop credit as soon as we offer your clothes online and in store, it is a service to our customers.
Please note that there might be reasons why we cannot accept your preloved item, for example if we have too many similar items in the shop at the moment or the style is out of season (i.e. summer dress in December).
MY CHILD’S GARMENT HAS A VERY SMALL STAIN, WILL YOU ACCEPT IT?
For our trusted community to work, we must ensure that all our preloved items are in very good condition: this means no stains, holes, or missing buttons.*
We inspect all items very closely and reserve the right not to accept the clothing if the condition does not meet our standards. We will let you know upon receipt if we find a noticeable imperfection and offer you two options: 1) if you would like an item sent back to you, we kindly ask that you pay €3,50 for return shipping within The Netherlands or 2) we will gladly donate the item for you to ‘Because we Carry’. This foundation offers help to refugees in Lesbos.
*Some parents remove tags to avoid irritating sensitive skin. If your item has a tag removed, please indicate that in your email to us. These items will be decided on a case by case basis.
WHO PAYS THE SHIPPING FEES?
You are only responsible for the shipping fee to send your garments to Mio Meraki in Bussum, The Netherlands. We highly recommend a tracking service as we cannot be responsible for lost packages en route to us.
For each garment that sells, we take a €5 fee to cover the packaging and shipping cost to send the garment to the next family!
