Want to know one of the best things about cloth diapers? Not only are these reusable diapers, it’s also possible to reuse them on multiple babies! Baby #1, baby #2, whatever. Then they can be sell them to another family to use on THEIR baby(ies).
I heard about a new service that totally fits this need really well. It’s called the Relight Marketplace. The best part is that you can buy and sell cloth diapers and it is completely safe from start to finish. No more scammers, misrepresented condition, and dozens of PMs (private messages) back and forth.
Relight Marketplace guarantees that you get the item that was promised in the condition it was promised in, or receive a full refund. Buy and sell cloth diapers with confidence.
I hate the direction that social media is going. Especially places like Facebook. They control everything. What you see. What you don’t see. They own the content, not you. It’s censored, and not in a good way. And the buy, sell, trade groups seem to be just, over the top.
Vanessa Tomchik, the creator and owner of Lighthouse Kids Co. seems to agree.
She didn’t like the controversies that were surrounding social media platforms. And the smart business owner that she is, Vanessa also realized that many of the new parents coming in just weren’t on platforms like Facebook anymore. And this is where Relight Marketplace comes in.
The creation of the marketplace allowed Lighthouse Kids Co. to expand their education and customer experience from the beginning of the cloth diaper journey to the very end and host it ALL on their own website. That took control away from third parties and brought it back to where it belongs. Now there is a place to buy and sell without any hassle!
I personally created an account and a test listing to see how the buy and sell worked.
It was EASY PEASY people.
It’s set up in a step by step way. You basically fill in the blanks with the cloth diaper name and print, condition, notes and pics and then submit. I honestly took less than 5 minutes. There’s even tips on how to take pictures to get the best possible outcome.
And to buy it’s just as simple. All for sale listing are in the same place. All the info you need to make a decision. All for sale posts are reviewed before going live. And all are back by Treet Protection, he service that handles the behind the scenes stuff for Lighthouse Kids on the Relight Marketplace.
You are guaranteed that you get the item that was promised in the condition it was promised in, or receive a full refund.
As a seller you are also part of the Treet Protection. From the website, They trust “that you will represent your items correctly when posted. If for whatever reason, a Claim is raised and we need to return the item to you, Treet will cover the customer support and cost of return shipping.”
How you get your money
The best part? You can actually get all that support and protection for NO FEE! If you choose to receive a store credit, you will be given the full amount of your sale price for any product offered on lighthousekidscompany.com.
If you decide you just want the cash, there is a 20% commission from the sale price of whatever you sell.
I think the setup of the site is super easy. I love the protection both sellers and buyers get. All the fun without all the hassle. And the pricing is really reasonable in my opinion.
