How it works

How it works

I would like to sell / rent / give something away:

1. Create an account. 
We are creating a smarter to way to wed and we're thrilled to join us! It's free to create an account, and you can sign up or log in with a username/password, or use either Facebook or Google to access.

2. Create a listing.
  • You can choose to sell, give or rent your items! 
  • Take great photos, this is the most important thing for your item to stand out
  • You can choose to deliver an item via PICKUP or SHIPPING for an item. If you choose to ship, you will have to add a postage fee (please estimate for now - shipping integration rolled out ASAP!)

3. Transactions - explained!
What happens: 
  • If someone is interested, they will request to buy your item, or send you a message. 
  • You will receive an email from SavvyWeds with a link to accept or decline the offer as well as access to a messaging system, where you can communicate with the buyer. 
    • You need to accept the request and we ask our sellers to please accept/decline within 3 days, so we can be respectful of our buyers time!  
    • If the transaction is not accepted within 3 days or before the end date (whichever comes first), the transaction is canceled, and no money is transferred. 
  • Throughout this entire exchange, you can continue to communicate with the buyer via the messaging system, to set up a time for collection / get postage address, etc. 

Payments: Payments are powered by Stripe, the world's leading payment processing system. Once accepted, the money is captured from the buyer's card, and funds are put on hold. Once the buyer receives the item, the buyers mark the order complete. Money is then moved into the seller account, and it usually takes about 7 days for the funds to post.  Both parties get a receipt of the transaction via email.

SavvyWeds fees: Our fees are very simple and straightforward. There is no fee to list items on our site! If an item is purchased, the seller keeps 85% of any sale and SavvyWeds commission is 15% (which covers credit card processing fees & allows for an ad-free marketplace). 

4. Packaging your item.
Please clean the item and package it in a safe/secure manner. We also suggest adding a short & sweet message to your buyer (as the saying goes "something old, something new, something borrowed something blue!" sharing weddings items is thought to share good luck!). 

5. The item exchanges hands.
  • If you are SHIPPING the item, please message the buyer for their address, and once the item is shipped, provide them with a shipping tracking number. 
  • If you are PICKING UP the item, please agree a date and safe location for the exchange. 

6. Complete the order.

After the buyer receives your item, the buyer must mark the order as completed.

2. Browse our listings.
We are building the largest wedding resale marketplace and are adding items everyday!

3. I found something I love.
You can request to purchase it or send the seller a question (there is a link Contact seller button inside the listing).

4. Transactions - explained!
Payments are powered by Stripe, the world's leading payment processing system.  Please review the details of the purchase, then input your credit card details.  The payment happens immediately and both parties get a receipt of the transaction via email.

The seller needs to approve or decline your request. Our sellers will respond within 3 days, but you will be notified either way. If the transaction is approved you can keep communicating with the seller via the messaging system (go to the top right corner of the page and click your profile --> Inbox)

5. The item exchanges hands.
If the sale goes through you will receive a confirmation email. 
  • If the seller is SHIPPING the item, please message the seller your address. 
  • If the buyer is PICKING UP the item, please agree a date and safe location for the exchange. 

6. Complete the order + leave your seller a review.

After you receive your item, the buyer must mark the order as completed. 

Additionally, we ask our buyers let the seller know how the experience was by leaving a review! Reviews are a really important part of the process as it helps sellers to keep doing a great job or to improve. It also helps SavvyWeds keep a close eye on the satisfaction of our community.
