MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Totspot, a peer-to-peer mobile marketplace for buying and selling new and gently used children's fashion, announced today the launch of Totspot Concierge, a full-service selling tool designed for busy parents who don't have time to sell their children's pre-owned clothing on their own. With Totspot Concierge, users can now have other parents in Totspot's 185,000 people strong online community sell their children's clothing for them, saving time for the original owner and providing an additional source of income for the seller.
To start, users simply order a "cleanout" bag on the Totspot app, fill the bag with the items they would like to sell, and ship the bag to their personal concierge, free of charge. The concierge then evaluates the contents for sellability, quality, and condition and lists the items for sale in Totspot's mobile marketplace on the user's behalf. When an item sells, the profits are shared between the bag owner and the Totspot concierge, with the bag owner making a 20-50% profit on every sale, depending on the quality and condition of the items sold. Totspot's certified concierges make 40% on every sale.
"Totspot Concierge is the next evolution for our company and a service that our community has been wanting for some time," said Totspot CEO Vijay Ramani. "We've built a service layer on top of our growing parent-to-parent marketplace that allows busy parents to sell their children's clothing without ever having to take photos or list any information. Additionally, the concierge program provides current Totspot users with the opportunity to assist other parents with the selling process. Over the past few months, we've carefully selected top-tier sellers on Totspot to be our concierges and reward them for their role in facilitating each transaction. After three months in private beta, that service is now available to all buyers and sellers on Totspot."
Totspot notifies the seller when their item is purchased and credits the user's account, which they can use to purchase other items on Totspot or simply cash out. All declined or unsold items are donated to local charities. The Totspot app is available on iOS and Android.
