Frequently Asked Questions

What do I have to do?

Very little!

1. After checkout you can save your new purchases on thelittleloop in just a couple of clicks

2. Enjoy the clothes and we'll send you a reminder in a few months to see if you're ready to trade them in.

3. When you're ready, just login, select the items you wish to trade-in, and we'll send you a shipping label / QR code (you can even arrange a Royal Mail collection).

4. That's it!

As soon as we get the items, we pay you in credit. Which you can spend on thelittleloop, or exchange for a voucher to spend with The QT.

n.b. We store the purchase price, the image, and size of each item. So when you come to trade it, there's absolutely no information to provide. And because we pay you instantly you won't have to wait for them to sell, or risk being haggled down to nothing :)

Is the trade-in value guaranteed?

The trade-in value we show on each product and in your online closet is based on a predicted item condition. If the item arrives back to us in the condition we predict, then you will receive the trade-in value shown. We will adjust it for differing conditions.

How are trade-in prices calculated?

You will receive 35% of the price we can sell the item for. Those prices are calculated as follows:

- Brand New items = 60% RRP

- Excellent Used items = 40% RRP

- Very Good Used items = 35% RRP

- Good Used Items = 30%

- Satisfactory Used items = 20% RRP

We promise to judge your clothes fairly. In fact, 79% of clothes we receive are rated good or better.

What happens to the clothes I return?

Every item will be assessed by our expert team, to decide its condition.  If it is saleable, you will automatically receive your credit, based upon its condition. 

The item will then be steamed, and any defects photographed before being listed for sale.

Our conditions are:

- Brand new: Never worn and/or with tags

- Excellent: Like new, no imperfections.

- Very Good: Used a few times, but still looks great.

- Good: Obviously worn with some signs of wear but no significant stains or damage

- Satisfactory: Used a lot and may have minor stains or defects

If an item cannot be sold it will be recycled by our UK recycling partner.

What about items which we didn't buy from you or a brand partner?

We know you don't want to be sending some clothes to one place, and the rest to another.

So - as well as your trade-in items - we'll accept ANY clean, wearable kids clothes they no longer wear.

Just order a clear-out pack from thelittleloop and send it back with your trade-in items. You'll get £5 for every full bag!
