We list all items for a consignment period of 120 days beyond which we’ll donate your gear or, in some cases, sustainably dispose of. You have the optIon to have the item returned once 110 days of the consignment window has passed for a processing fee of AED 35.
Once a month, we drop the price by 5-10% for each item that doesn’t sell and continue to discount its price until sold or the 120-day listing period expires. This is done to give the best chance for your item to sell.
We do! Of course, our sellers get final approval on our recommended prices. Pricing info is available on your Clear Out dashboard as well as communicated to Sellers via email/ Whatsapp and needs to be approved within 3 days.
If we do not hear back from you within 3 days of receiving our pricing info, we'll take it that you’re happy to go ahead and your item(s) go live and be showcased to our community of eager buyers, increasing its chances of finding a new home quickly.

Our pricing algorithm, carefully designed by our in-house team, is based on an item’s current retail price, market demand, condition and data of similar market listings.
All that said, we are continuously refining our algorithm to ensure fair pricing for sellers and great deals for shoppers.
As a small, sustainable business, we’re proud to offer you a competitive Seller payout scale. Our sliding scale payout gives you higher earnings for selling higher-priced items. That’s because processing costs of most lower-priced items are almost as high as, if not higher than, their resale value.
Here's how it works:
Base Selling Price*
*Payouts are calculated based on the Base Selling Price and not price listed on website which may include Handling Fees.
Any time there is a price drop, the payout is automatically recalculated based on the new Base Selling Price. This price drop ensures your item is competitively priced and potentially sells faster.
When eligible items sell, you get notified and we'll transfer your earnings straight to your bank account within 18 days from date of delivery or from date of receiving your bank info, whichever is later.
Local transfers are free. For international bank transfers, transfer fees will apply.
