FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES FOR A SWIFT AND SUCCESSFUL DROP-OFF
DROP OFF PROCEDURES:
As part of our mission to offer HIGH QUALITY SEASONALLY APPROPRIATE items for all of our consigners, we inspect items at the time of drop off. This way we can prevent stained, shabby, out of style, out of season, broken, etc. items from making it to the sale floor.
We know that despite our best efforts, sometimes we miss a stain or a sundress feels it’s so adorable it can be worn all year-'round and jumps into your winter coat pile -- so we don’t want you to be offended or frustrated by our double checking all your items before they come onto the sale floor.
Please expect drop-off to take 20 – 30 minutes depending on the number of items you have.
If you have roughly 150 items or more, it may be best to schedule two drop-off shifts.
You must complete our Drop-Off questionnaire in order to come inside the PAL Building.
This form must be completed on the DAY OF DROP-OFF - before you enter the building.
How To Drop Off:
Please note that you will be asked to confirm That Neither you nor any member of your household is currently ill, or has been ill in the past 10 days
When you arrive at the Wayne PAL for your pre-selected time, you will
• Park your Car (DO NOT UNLOAD)- You may temporarily park your car in front of the building.
• Check-in with a Team Member to confirm:
• You’ve arrived and we are ready for your items
• After sale Donate/No Donate Status - are you planning to pick up unsold items?
• Hand any car seat waiver forms -CAR SEATS & BOOSTER SEATS - If you would like to sell a car seat or booster seat PLEASE FILL OUT our Car Seat Waiver From
• Approve / Deny ability for sale volunteers to discount to 1/2 price any items that are slightly stained or
missing batteries still meet our sale guidelines. If you choose not to discount these types of items, they will be removed from the sale and will not be sold.
• Have all items sorted properly. (see below)
Do your best to keep like items together? Your drop-off will be lightning-fast if you do.
• Bring all your items into the Gym when instructed to do so by a Team Member. After bringing items in we ask that
you park your car in a proper parking spot and NOT in front of the building.
• If NOT donating all, make sure you plan to leave a large empty bin labeled with your seller number that will fit at
least half of your items. There will be a $10.00 no bin charge for any seller who fails to leave the appropriate amount
• Bring Items to appropriate check-in stations (see below)
Your items should be tagged, clean, have working batteries, secure packaging, and be ready to put on the selling floor
when you arrive.

How to NOT have a nice drop-off experience
Don't sort your items
Don't have tags on your items
Don't have your clothes on hangers
Show up late
Completely miss your time slot
Have loose pieces or missing pieces
Just throw your stuff in the car - who needs organization anyway?!
Have items that are NOT appropriate for the season
Forget to leave a bin
Try to put tags on your items in the drop-off line
Whoo Consigns cannot accept items with loose pieces or items without batteries!
We will have a small “self-help” station to install batteries and to secure loose items.
If available, a Team member can assist you in the best possible manner to secure your items together.
WE HAVE GUIDELINES SET IN PLACE TO OFFER THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE TO BOTH YOU, OUR SELLERS, AND OUR SHOPPERS.
FAILURE TO ADHERE TO THESE GUIDELINES WILL RESULT IN DEDUCTIONS FROM YOUR FINAL SELLER PAYMENT AND MAY RESULT IN BEING PROHIBITED FROM SELLING AT FUTURE EVENTS
EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF ITEMS THAT DO NOT MEET GUIDELINES
If you arrive at the event with a large amount of miss sorted items, items with excessive wear and tear, smell, or lack of overall functionality you will be charged a processing fee and risk being asked not to participate in future events.
TAGS THAT DO NOT SCAN AT CHECK OUT
White cardstock (60-70lb.) paper is REQUIRED for all tags to be printed on!
Regular computer paper or “copy paper”, colored or off-white cardstock, or any other types of paper are not permitted. Failure to use the appropriate paper will result in a $25 fee deducted from your final Settlement Report and payout.
Barcodes must scan! Reasons for scanning issues include incorrect paper, low ink/toner, cut-off barcodes, taped barcodes, or poor print quality. Improperly printed tags significantly slow down checkout and reduce buyer confidence. If more than 5 of your tags don't scan, then a $25 fee will be deducted from your final Settlement Report and payout.
FAILURE TO LEAVE THE PROPER AMOUNT OF LABELED SORTING BINS
$10.00 for not enough tubs, $25.00 for no tubs.
At drop-off, you are asked to leave LARGE LABELED tubs if you are not donating all of your items. You should leave enough to hold half of your items in order to help us clearly separate your items from other sellers' items on pick-up day.
