Sellers earn a percentage of the sale price (excl. GST) after a product has sold. Commission is based on what price the product sells for.
$1 - $64.99 = 50% of the sale price (excl. GST)
$65+ = 60% of the sale price (excl. GST)
*GST is Goods and Services Tax, 15% of the sale price that we are required to pay to Inland Revenue.
We determine the price based on multiple factors of the product:
- If it is unopened or not.
- If it is opened, how much product and shelf-life remains.
- The condition of the packaging.
We typically start by taking 20 - 25% off the product's RRP, and then we will further discount the product depending on the above factors.
From time-to-time, we will run extra promotions on our website that may affect the selling price of your product. E.g. A 30% storewide sale.
Payments are issued into the Seller's bank account on the first Tuesday of every month, following the month that the product was sold. E.g. If the product sold in May, your share would be deposited in June.
You can either:
- Drop off your products.
- Organise your own shipping or;
- Purchase a selling kit which includes a pre-paid NZPost courier label and packaging to send your products in.
If you are organising your own shipping, we recommend using Trade Me's Book a Courier service as they have great rates for NZPost and you can book a pick up right from your front door - without the need for a printer either!

Accepted products are listed on our website for ten weeks and go through a sale cycle - six weeks at their original price, two weeks at 25% off, and two weeks at 50% off.
If unsold after the ten weeks, you can choose to have your products returned to you for the cost of shipping. Otherwise, we can recycle and/or responsibly dispose of them for you.
As we cannot determine a product will be accepted until we have seen it in person, you have the option to have unaccepted products returned to you for the cost of shipping ($4.50 for standard or $8 for rural shipping) or to have Second Skin recycle or responsibly dispose of the product.
