PageLines- 2.PNGYou want to Flip clothes with FlipSize but our Flip Bags seem to be ALWAYS SOLD OUT right? It’s true, our Flip Bags are VERY popular. We recently made them available and they were gone in 2 hours! (Our email subscribers are the first to know about the bags being available, so make sure you’re on the list by signing up here so that you don’t miss out next time). If you’re live near us though, all hope is not lost. There’s a special process just for our locals and in this post I’ll tell you all about it.

We are really picky about the clothes we will buy, because we’re really picky about the clothes we will sell. Check out this blog post about the “No Dud” promise we make to our customers.

After you’ve got your clothes all sorted out you need to:

  1. Look around your house and find a box, bag, or bin and put the clothes inside. Then write your name and email address on a piece of paper and include that in your receptacle of choice. If you haven’t registered for an account on our site, do that here.
  2. Now you need to figure out which location is closest to you. We have locations in Abbotsford, Langley, Surrey, Coquitlam and Maple Ridge. Send me an email (info@flipsize.ca) and let me know you’re planning to drop off clothes and ask me to send you the address of the location closest to you. You can find the cross streets for each location here
  3. Then go ahead and drop your items off and send me an email to let me know you’ve done so. And you’re done!

Now it’s my part.

I’ll process your items and make sure they meet our standards (Here’s a video I posted on Facebook to show how I check clothes over). When I’m done I’ll send you an email tell you how many points have been added to your account. Here’s a little explanation of the points. (20 FlipSize points = $1)

Once your points have been added to your account you can use them to pay for items in our store (and if you do this we’ll give you extra loyalty points as described here) or you can use them for PayPal cash or gift cards.

    Hi just checking out your site. So about $1-2 per item if it’s accepted?
    Thanks

      Thanks for taking a look at our site.
      The amount is very dependent on the size, brand and quality of the item. For smaller more common items, yes you can expect $1-2. For items in higher sizes, boutique brands, specialty items, clothes with tags attached etc – you would receive more points. I hope that helps.
