Hereby, the seller would be referred to as the Consignor and the Company, the Consignee. Confirmation of the consignment is subject to the below-mentioned points.
The Luxchange assures the Consignor complete confidentiality of their identity and information while transacting through the consignment mode.
You, as a consignor, attest to the authenticity of all agreed-upon items, and you confirm that you have not knowingly attempted to resell counterfeit or fake products through The Luxchange.
The Luxchange does not and will not entertain the entry of any counterfeit or fake products in any manner on the platform and thus reserves the right to initiate any legal proceedings.
Consignor attests that they have the legal title to, are in legal possession of, and have no liability whatsoever attached to any or all products that The Luxchange is entitled to sell on behalf of them.
We recommend you arrange for the pickup/ delivery of your product(s). If at all you want us to do the pickup/ delivery, we can organize the same with a reputed logistics company. Nevertheless, the risk of any damage, theft, etc., during transit, is not the responsibility of The Luxchange and it is at your own risk.
Consignors can ship the item(s) to The Luxchange warehouse:
#18, Gotri Cooperative Society,
Behind Hari Krupa Society,
Vadodara - 390021
A gentle reminder to consignors to ensure that the items being sent are 100% authentic and do not have any wear & tear or damages.
In case any item is not approved by The Luxchange team after a final inspection basis:
Final price not acceptable by the Consignor
or any other reason
a flat fee of Rs. 1,000 to be paid by Consignor towards service and delivery of the unapproved items back to the Consignor. Consignors can choose to pay the same through an RTGS, bank deposit, Paytm transfer, COD, or deduction from sale proceeds of other accepted item(s) of the Consignor.
The Contract is valid from the date of confirmation by the consignor on the terms & conditions mentioned in the contract and the final price of the item(s). The consignment period, however, begins as soon as the item(s) is displayed on The Luxchange’s online portals. There is a seven-day interval between confirmation of final prices by the consignor and the listing of the respective item on The Luxchange online portals.
During this interval, the item(s) undergoes authentication, spa cleaning, professional photography, etc.
Payout to Consignee*
On receiving a query to sell with us, our valuation team through their extensive research and understanding of the item(s) for sale, provide the consignor with an estimated range of the amount that will be paid to the consignor on the successful sale of the item. The payout depends on the brand, style, condition, demand, original packaging, category, etc. of the item(s) for sale.
A final payout is communicated to the consignor via email/ notification based on the physical inspection of the item. In 90% of cases, the final payout is within the estimated price range communicated beforehand to the consignor. In cases where the final payout is outside of the estimated price range, a clear explanation will be given for the same.
To improve chances to sell, the consignor can reduce the payout at their own discretion by getting in touch with The Luxchange team. Reducing the payout will automatically reduce the selling price of the item on the website & app, and the item will be sold under the “Hot Deals” section by default. Once the reduced payout is proposed and accepted by the consignor, it is taken as the consignor’s final decision and an increase in the payment further on will not be possible.
The Luxchange is responsible and authorized to take all necessary steps to sell your product on all of its platforms. This includes writing the descriptions, highlighting the effects, and uploading photographs of the product and also display at the store. The Luxchange will take no prior permission for the sale from the consignor.
The Luxchange will be accepting offers from customers on your item(s) and communicating the same to you. On receiving a positive confirmation on the payout based on the offer price from the consignor, The Luxchange will go ahead with the sale of the item(s).
Once an offer is accepted by consignor, the same cannot be undone by the consignor.
The Contract stands terminated:
(i) if the consignor wishes to remove his/her listing and the product is removed from the portal, or
(ii) on the sale of the product.
Unsold products requested back by the consignor within 2 months (or 60 days) of the consignment period, will be shipped back subject to a penalty fee of Rs. 3,000 per item, paid by the consignor to The Luxchange.
After completion of 2 months (or 60 days), unsold products requested back by the consignor, will be shipped back subject to a service fee of Rs. 1,500 per item. This amount is towards costs incurred by The Luxchange in authentication, spa, photography, logistics, packaging, marketing, etc. of the item. The product returned to the consignor will be a thoroughly spa-cleaned one.
In case the item is not sold within 2 months (or 60 days) of the consignment period, despite all efforts by The Luxchange:
The selling price of item(s), and consequently the net income of the consignor, will automatically get reduced. The product will be listed under the "Hot Deals" section automatically. The listing under "Hot Deals" is valid until either the item gets sold or the consignor opts for a return of the product. There is no lock-in period for this. The payout to the consignor is subsequently reduced as well. An email/ notification will be sent to the consignor 7 days prior to the end of the first three months. The consignor may either accept or opt for a return of the items (with return fees to be paid as applicable).
No response from the consignor on this will be taken as a confirmation by default.
The consignor can alternatively opt for a return of their item(s), on full payment of a fee of Rs. 1,500 per product towards the operational and marketing expenses incurred on the product.
PLEASE NOTE: Consignment does not mean “sale” of the item. In other words, you the Consignor, legally give the rights to The Luxchange to sell your Product. Until it is sold on our portal, the product is the property of the Consignor. The legal ownership is transferred to the Buyer of the item on the day the product is purchased and shipped to the Buyer and the Consignor is notified.
The payment will be scheduled within 3 Working days of the successful sale of the product through online Bank transfer, subject to all details being furnished by the consignor to facilitate the payment.
Payment to Consignor will be made via online transfers, NEFT/RTGS, bank deposit only.
Self cheque/ Cash in hand will not be given by The Luxchange.
The Luxchange runs promotions or further discounts of up to 10% on special occasions like Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, New Year, etc. The consignor will not be troubled with regards to these unless the selling price encroaches the Rs. 3,000 buffer from the payout.
*The difference in the final selling price and the payout to the consignor is the commission earned by The Luxchange towards expenses incurred in logistics, authentication, spa, photography, marketing, discounts, giveaways, etc.
“Item Aging” refers to the number of days since the listing date of the item on the site.
“Initial Seller Payout” refers to the payout amount initially approved by the Seller when the item was listed on the website.
“Initial Selling Price” refers to the initial value at which the item got listed on the website.

Terms & Conditions are subject to change.
