Our Consignment Terms are similar yet distinctly different than those you'd find at other resale platforms:
1. FASHION FORWARD provides a 60% Consigner Commission as opposed to 50% - 30% offered on other resellers. Our business is founded in empowering women, and we know how much every dollar means to nonprofits.
2. FASHION FORWARD Consignment Term is 365 days as opposed to 90-120 days. We know that seasonal and specialty merchandise can sometimes take longer to sell.
