General Questions
01. How do you authenticate products?

We have in-house professional authenticators with experience authenticating thousands of luxury items from prestigious designer brands. Our proprietary multi-tiered authentication process ensures that each piece is reviewed multiple times by a trained authenticator before the item is available for sale. We collect data about all our items and use it to create reference libraries that show us every variance and minor change made by the brands we carry. We conduct an extremely detailed research about the counterfeit market and collect data on exactly how they are made to compare to authentic pieces. Our Authenticators are trained on exactly what details to look for that indicate an item may be counterfeit. We are constantly improving our methods and using technology to advance our processes. Learn more about our authentication process.

02. Where do you get your products?

Our expert buyers have sourcing partners worldwide that look for the most pristine and rare vintage finds. In addition, we buy from auction houses globally and directly from our vintage-loving clients. Sell to us now.

03. Will I be charged tax?

Sales tax will be calculated and applied to your purchase prior to checkout. It is contingent on your state’s current tax rate. States that do not have a WGACA presence will not be charged tax.

04. When will I be charged?

As soon as you complete your order, authorization for the necessary payment will be requested automatically to verify the credit card and availability of funds; however, the card is not charged at this time. The actual payment occurs when the order is invoiced, at which point you will receive a notification e-mail of the shipment with tracking information. If your order is canceled for whatever reason, the pending charges will drop within the next few business days.

05. What payment methods does WGACA accept?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, Affirm and PayPal as payment methods.

We do not offer layaway options.

06. What is your price adjustment policy?

We do not offer price adjustments. Each WGACA item is unique in its grade and age, and because of this, its pricing is subject to various conditions

07. I just purchased an item and now there’s a sale. Can I receive a price adjustment?

We cannot offer price adjustments for previously purchased items. Various factors contribute to an item's inclusion or exclusion from a sale. Critical eligibility factors cannot be assessed if a previously purchased item is no longer in our inventory when the sale begins.

Sell to Us Questions

What Goes Around Comes Around buys outright; we do not offer consignment. When you sell your luxury item(s) to us, payment can be issued by one of the following methods:

  • Paper check sent to your home
  • Direct electronic payment to your bank account
  • Store credit where you can earn an extra 20% more than a cash payment
02. How long does the whole selling process take?

The selling process takes about 3 weeks total from acceptance to pay-out (in the event there are no delays). After uploading your photos, the seller will receive an estimated offer if we are interested in purchasing their item(s). If the seller would like to accept the estimated offer, we will issue a prepaid shipping label for them to send in their item(s) to be checked for QA/QC in-house. After receiving and checking the item(s) for authenticity and condition, our team will then either confirm the estimated quote or propose a counteroffer in the case that the item(s) are in a different condition than the original photos indicated. Once the final offer is agreed upon, the seller will select their preferred method of payout. Store credit is processed the same day and available for use on our website or at any What Goes Around Comes Around store. Check and Direct Deposit payments are processed by our internal finance department, and the payout is mailed or deposited within 10 business days.

We do not provide shipping materials to sellers. Please securely pack your item(s) using any box and packing materials you see fit in order to maintain the condition and structure of the item(s). You can then drop your package off at any UPS facility or schedule a pickup.

There is no limit to how many items a seller can submit to us. Please remember to keep submissions limited to only the accepted categories and brands we carry.

11. What are the advantages of receiving store credit versus cash?

We offer a store credit value that’s 20% greater than the cash estimate issued for each item submitted by a seller. Store credit can be redeemed at any WGACA retail location as well as on our website.

12. How do you determine pricing?

We determine the price of each item we buy based on its current market value, which can vary by style, size, colorway, and, of course, condition. Other factors such as client demand, rarity, accessibility, and our retail price are also considered when making our offers to sellers.

We offer full transparency to our sellers regarding the valuation of their luxury item(s) and do our best to answer any questions.

13. Will you price match a quote from another company?

We realize and understand that a seller might receive a higher offer for their luxury item(s) from a different company, as we all have our own pricing structures, markups, and customer demands. Although we do not practice price-matching, we are open to hearing your price expectations and, in some cases, are open to negotiations.

14. What if you don't accept my item? What if I don't accept your updated offer, if it has changed after inspection

If we pass on the item(s) due to condition and/or authenticity concerns, we will update you via e-mail and ship the item(s) back to you immediately. If we are unable to authenticate the item, you will need to provide us with a return label to send back. If you choose not to accept an updated offer after the inspection or we do not come to an agreement on price, we will ship the item(s) back to you immediately at no expense to you. All shipments are made via UPS.

15. Will you tell me if my item is real or fake?

We do not provide virtual authentication services. However, during the selling process, all items are checked for authenticity in-house. If our team passes on an item due to authenticity concerns, we are happy to explain how we came to that determination and describe the specific points of concern if the seller wishes to hear them.

What Goes Around Comes Around takes authenticity very seriously and guarantees that only authentic items are sold to our customers. For that reason, we cannot accept any item that we are not 100% confident is authentic.

01. I purchased a bag from one of your wholesale partners. Can I return it to you?

Once an item is sold to a third-party wholesale partner such as Dillard's, Von Maur, or Belk, we no longer own the product and cannot extend further courtesies on their behalf. If you wish to return or exchange, it must be done with the wholesale partner and by their policy.

02. Do you offer a warranty?

We do not offer warranties on any of our products due to the varying degrees of the condition of each item at the time of purchase.

03. How do I register my bag?

Our feature to register on our website is still a work in progress.

04. I purchased a bag from one of your wholesale partners but I did not receive a branded dust bag or box. Can you send me these items?

Unfortunately, we are not able to provide boxes or original dust bags for your purchase. Each item is pre-owned and sometimes purchased without the original box or duster. Your handbag is still guaranteed to be authentic without these effects.
