Walmart isn’t necessarily known for its high-quality fashion, but that may change today. Today, Walmart has entered the market for selling secondhand clothing, shoes, and accessories: an industry that has boomed in the past several years and is expected to expand from $32 billion in 2020 to a whopping $51 billion by 2023, according to ThredUp.
If you’re into used fashion or have concerns about the fashion industry’s impact on the environment, you may want to head to Walmart.com and check this out!

Get free shipping on orders over $35 and free returns when you shop ThredUp via Walmart.
When you spend at least $35 through Walmart’s portal instead of ThredUp’s, you’ll get free shipping. ThredUp, on the other hand, charges $5.99 for flat-rate shipping on orders under $79. You’ll also be able to make returns for free to any Walmart store. According to Walmart, these are exclusive perks that haven’t been available to ThredUp customers before.
You’ll need to go directly through ThredUp to sell used apparel.
Shopping ThredUp through Walmart has its perks — like free shipping over $35 and free returns, but you won’t be able to sell anything through Walmart.com. For that, head to ThredUp to order a Clean Out Kit that you’ll mail via FedEx or USPS. Once ThredUp receives your used goods, they’ll pay you with cash or shopping credit.
ThredUp only accepts goods with no signs of wear (pilling, fading, or shrinkage), damage, or alterations.
