You receive 100% of the Shipping cost that you charge (typically $5 for an overnight, tracked delivery).
Tip: Just don't include the cost of the return - this is the responsibility of the Borrower.
You know your item best, that's why it's up to you to dry-clean your items after a rental.
Tip: We recommend adding $15-25 to your rental fee to cover dry-cleaning, depending on the item's material.

How much should I charge for my rental?
You are welcome to set your own prices for your items - however the lower the price, the more demand you will have for your item!
The standard rental fee is around 5-15% of the retail price of your item.
For example, if your dress retails at around $450 - a typical rental fee would be around $70 + Shipping.
When do I get paid for my rental?
An important question! We listened and have made this faster than ever.
From now on, you will get paid at 5pm on the same day your rental has been received to the Borrower - or - at 5pm on the day your rental is due to commence (whatever comes first).
