Buffalo Exchange Sell By Mail

By Brittany, Buffalo Exchange Sell By Mail

If you need to clean out your closet, but you’re busier than all get-out (hey, us too), make it easy on yourself! With Buffalo Exchange’s Sell By Mail program, you simply request a bag online, fill it up with your clothing and accessories and then drop it off at the U.S.store. Within a few weeks, you could have cash or trade in your hands! No waiting in line required.

1) Request a bag

The first step is easy – just request a bag online! Then, keep an eye out for our bright yellow envelope in your mailbox. Your kit will contain a pre-paid U.S.bag and a handy-dandy “How To Sell” card with all the info you need to know to sell your clothing.

Our pre-paid bag holds approximately 20 to 40 pieces of clothing. Some folks like to clean out their closet all at once, while others prefer to keep the bag in their closet and slowly fill it with pieces they just aren’t wearing anymore. With Sell By Mail, you can go at your own pace!

2) Clean out your closet!

Whether you’re looking to clean out your summer staples to make room for your fall/winter wardrobe or you just have a few things that haven’t been getting worn, send it in! We buy the best of all seasons, all year round. Not sure what to pack? We’re always looking for men’s and women’s current styles and trends, designer clothing and everyday staples. Through Sell By Mail, keep in mind that we do not purchase swimwear, children’s clothing and accessories, maternity clothing, intimates, counterfeits, fur or bridal wear. We also don’t buy clothing from fast-fashion and discount brands like Forever 21, H&M, Old Navy, Aeropostale, Target, Walmart or Kohl’s.

Check out our most current Sell by Mail needs here.

 

3) Give it a last look

Before you drop your bag at UPS, double-check the items you’ve packed. We don’t wash or mend anything before it goes out to our stores, so before you sell your clothing, look at it under a bright light. This way, you can catch any items that need to be spot-treated or washed before sending them off.

4) Drop your bag at UPS!

Drop off your Sell By Mail bag at any U.S.store. Then, sit back and relax! Once your bag has been delivered to us, we’ll send you an email to let you know we got it. Within 3-5 business days of arrival, we’ll process each item in your bag, making selections based on style and condition, and buy any items that will sell for our stores. Within 2-4 weeks of dropping off your bag, you should have money in your pocket.

5) Get Paid!

After our buyers have processed your bag, you’ll receive an email stating the amounts of cash or trade you can choose from. You can opt for 50% of our selling price in trade (store credit that works at all Buffalo Exchange stores excluding Buffalo Outlets) or 25% in a check or PayPal payout. Once you make your selection, we’ll send out your trade card or payout within 3-5 business days.

6) Give Back

What about the items we can’t buy? You can elect to donate your remaining items to a good cause or pay the $14.99 shipping cost to have them returned. We hold a $1 Charity Yard Sale every other month to benefit charities that may not have a need for clothing but would benefit greatly from a cash donation. So far, we’ve donated over $7,000 to various non-profit organizations through our Sell By Mail $1 sale donation program.

7) Request another bag!

All done? Enjoy your fresh new closet and money in your pocket! While you’re at it, request another Sell By Mail bag so you’ll be ready to sell your clothing any time your closet starts to get too full!

  1. Hello:
    I have a lot of clothes, mostly Boys Quicksilver, Volcom, Levis jeans, Quicksilver shorts, Ralph Lauren polo jeans, pants, and shorts for kids of almost all ages. May I please have a bag sent to me? And also, does going to the store personally represent more money to the donor?

    1. Hi Fabiana,

      Thanks for contacting us. We take adult-sized clothing only – no kids or juniors. For these types of items, you might try Children’s Orchard, which is not too terribly far from you.

      For all adult-sized clothing items and accessories you’re looking to sell, we’d love to take a look! In store, we offer 30% of our selling price in cash, whereas we offer 25% when you sell by mail. We offer the same 50% in store credit for both. If it’s still more convenient for you to sell by mail, simply request a bag online.

      Let me know if you have any further questions!

      Best,

    1. Hi Manali,

      Thanks for asking! We do have to see all items in person before we can say whether or not we would buy them and what we would price them for, so we can’t offer you an estimate ahead of time. If it’s your first time, you might try selling a sampling of your items to start to get an idea of how it works. If you’re near a store, we always recommend going in person so you can ask your Buyer any questions you have.

    1. Hi Dawn,

      Yes, we do take plus size clothing! There’s no cut-off size – we just make selections based on style and condition. Feel free to send it in!

    1. Hi Nadia,

      We do take vintage items! Just like anything else, we buy based on the style and condition of the item. For vintage we usually look for great classic pieces that are still wearable today and funky unique items we know our shoppers will love! Feel free to bring in your items to your local Buffalo Exchange and our buyers will be happy to take a look.

  2. It says you don’t take fashion from places like Target or Kohl’s through Sell by Mail. Do you take them in store?

    1. Hi Tara,

      We do accept those brands in our stores so long as they are current and in like-new condition! Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.

  3. Do you take Men’s western wear items? I have several suits and long and short sleeve western shirts. They are the snap buttons , not regular buttons on the shirts . Thank you

    1. Hi Dana,

      Thanks for asking! We do take men’s western shirts, just depending on style and condition. With suits, modern slim-fit versions tend to sell the best for us, but I recommend bring everything you’re cleaning out down to your local Buffalo Exchange. One of our buyers will be happy to take a look at everything you have!

    1. Hi Gissele,

      Yes, we do buy Forever 21 items in store just depending on style and condition. Since they’re a little more affordable brand new, we’re selective about how current they are and look out for mint condition, but feel free to bring your items in – we’d love to see you in the store!

    1. Hi Electra,

      Thanks for reaching out to us. We have to see all items in person to say whether or not we can buy them and set a price, so I recommend stopping by your local Buffalo Exchange. One of our buyers would be happy to take a look at your Henri Bendel trench, as well as any other clothing and accessories you’re cleaning out. We buy all items based on style and condition, rather than brand. If we’re able to take any of your items, we would assign a selling price and you would get 30% in cash or 50% in store credit. We hope to see in the store soon!

  4. Also, do you accept clothing from HSN and QVC? I have some Iman, Serena Wiliams, and other brands from those sites

    1. Hi Lori,

      Thanks for inquiring! We select all items based on style and condition more than brand. I recommend sending in any clothing and accessories you’re cleaning out – our Buyers would be happy to take a look!

  5. I am looking to bring some clothes in on Monday, 7/3 to the Tucson location. Is it open that day and can I leave my clothes and check back later?

    1. Hi Brian,

      I’m so sorry I missed this comment! We were indeed open for normal hours on Monday. Hope you made it into the store and had a happy 4th! In general, you do have to wait until a Buyer can assist you, but at that point, you’re welcome to leave your clothing with them and stop back in later.

    1. Hi Sam,

      We buy based on style and condition more than brand or anything else, but these are certainly brands we would consider. Feel free to send them in!

    I wanted to know if you take brands like Bebe,Guess and I also have Coach Tote bag. Do you accept these?

    1. Hi Cristina,

      Good question – the store credit will be loaded onto a store credit card. The card never expires, so you can use it as many times as you like until you’ve used up your store credit!

  7. Hi,
    Are you still accepting fur coats for the Humane Society of the United States Coats for Cub donation?

    If not, do you know any organization that will accept fur coats as a donation?

  8. I have some men’s clothing nice jeans from Tommy Bahama and
    Lucky brand! Do you ever sell those kinds of jeans? And is there an average that you would give in cash in my pocket

    1. Hi Tammi,

      We do buy Tommy Bahama and Lucky Brand through our Sell By Mail program, however, what we can buy is mainly based on style and condition rather than brand. We’re always looking for current styles in like-new condition. If you would like to learn more or request a prepaid Sell By Mail mailer bag, you can visit our website at BuffaloExchange.com/SellByMail.

  9. Hello. I have some great boots and shoes that I just don’t wear. Am I also able to mail these in the bag Buffalo Exchange sends me? What size is the bag? If I need two bags should I put in two requests in a row?

    1. Hi Ann,

      Thank you for inquiring!

      We do accept shoes through our Sell By Mail program! If you decide to send in shoes, please be careful to wrap or pad them, as there’s potential for the shoes to rip the bag, or damage other items in transit. With shoes, we are always looking for clean items in mint condition and current styles and trends.

      Our bags are 24″x24″ and we currently allow one bag at a time. Once we receive your first bag, you’re welcome to put in another request and we would be happy to send you a second bag.

      Best,

    1. Hi Nico,

      Thank you for inquiring!

      We make our selections more based on style and condition than brand, but Converse is certainly a brand we would consider. Feel free to send them on in!

      Best,

      Brittany

    1. Hi Natalia,

      Thank you for inquiring!

      While our customers are most often looking for everyday staples and current, casual styles from popular mall and designer brands, we do also purchase business attire. With suits, modern slim-fit versions tend to sell the best for us. We do need to see items in person before we can determine if we’re able to buy them, but if you’d like to send them in, we’re always happy to take a look!

  10. Hi

    I live in San Francisco but and can’t seem to find a time to drop my items in store as I’m usually working or just too busy. I’m interested in the send by mail option but I think I have more items than what the bag could hold. Would it be possible to send my clothes in a package of my own, with shipping to you on my own expense?

    Thanks!

    Tin

    1. Hi Tin,

      Thank you for inquiring!

      Unfortunately, we do not accept items shipped in anything other than our pre-paid Sell By Mail shipping bags. We currently allow one bag at a time, but once we receive your first bag, you’re welcome to put in another request and we would be happy to send you a second bag.

      Best,

      Brittany
