Little Traders is an online, managed marketplace that eliminates the hassle of buying and selling second hand baby and kid gear. Buyers can shop top brands at top value, or sell their own gear through us.
Buying and selling second hand baby gear online more often than not leads to scams, delivery struggles, interactions with strangers and awkward cash exchanges.
We eliminate the hassle by taking care of:
- Fair Pricing
- Item validation and cleaning
- Payments between both parties
- Scheduling of exchanges
- Pick up & Delivery
- Easy Returns
As conditions around COVID-19 continue to evolve, we remain committed to our mission and are mitigating the risk of transmission through the following methods:
Contact-free Pickup and Delivery
For all items, our team will pickup and deliver to your door rather than entering your home. For large items, if you prefer in-home delivery please email us as: firstname.lastname@example.org. For in home deliveries or pickups, our delivery team will be wearing masks, take all precautions, and maintain 6 feet of distance.
Hard Surface Sanitization
Under guidance from Public Health Agency of Canada, we are asking that our community of sellers clean and sanitize the hard surfaces of their items prior to pickup. Cleaning prior to pickup as a precautionary measure will ensure the safety and wellbeing of our delivery team.
Delivery of clean and sanitized gear is an important part of our business. We ensure that picked up items remain untouched in our warehouse for 48 hours. After those 48 hours we sanitize and clean each item with a hospital grade steam cleaner before it's packaged and delivered to its new home.
Selling with us is simple!
1. Gather your items
2. Fill out our form to request a pick up
We recommend collecting as many items to sell as possible at one time. On the date of your pick up, simply leave your items outside or with your concierge and we will pick them up within a designated pick up window.
Once your item is sold you can expect to receive 20-70% of the sale price. You can choose to be paid out in cash (via EMT), a store credit for the amount plus 20%, or donate a percentage of the money to our local charity partners.
We accept most baby and kids gear except the following:
- Clothing and Shoes
- Car Seats
- Broken and Recalled Items
- Stuffed Animals
- Couches, beds, and oversized furniture
- Items that have reached the end of their useable life
For a full list of items we accept, check out our How it Works page.
Depending on the item, we offer upfront payment or traditional consignment.
Payouts are based on the listed price on our website and will be paid out after the item has been purchased. You can expect the following consignment payouts on each items:
$300+ earn 70%
$150-$299 earn 60%
$60-$149 earn 50%
Less than $60 earn 20%
At the end of every month, your payout will be initiated by our payments team.
Options for payout include:
- Cash (via EMT)
- Store credit for the payout amount PLUS 20%
- Donate a portion of your payout to one of our charity partners.
Nope. It's free to have your items picked up by Little Traders but we do ask for minimum 7 items to sell.
We use a combination of current retail prices, the model, year, condition, as well as marketplace data to price your items.
Often times items don't sell because of price, seasonality, and/or supply in the market.
We reserve the right to lower the price of the item in order to help it sell. If your item has not sold after 6 months, we can donate it on your behalf or provide them back to you at your request.
Definitely! You can either chat with us via our website or book a free consult with one of our Traders. We will help answer any questions you have, guide you to the best products to buy based on milestone, and help you find the best deal.
