Information about DressedGPS

How it works



Can I try it on before I rent/buy?

Yes! Once the owner accepts your rental request, you’ll have 2 hours to try on your rental before you get charged. You can cancel the rental for whatever reason within those 2 hours. After you try it on, click "Rent" or "Buy" and the purchase will be made. 
If you'd like more time to try it on, request an extension with the owner.

What if I accidentally stain or damage a rental?

We understand, accidents happen. If there is a minor stain or damage, it is your responsibility to repair it. If the item is stained or damaged beyond repair or never returned, we will charge you for the full retail price of the item. We strongly recommend that both parties have a ‘before’ picture of the item so that if anything happens, there is clear evidence. If there are any issues, please email us at contact@dressedgps.com  and let us know.

Do I have to clean the item?

If you rent something on DressedGPS, you agree to return the item in the same condition as when you picked it up. Always clean the item per the instructions on the listing- sometimes that will mean dry cleaning. If the instructions aren't clear, message the owner to ask how they would life for you to clean it. 
If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at contact@dressedgps.com

What’s the late return policy?

Rentals are due back to the owner by midnight on the return date, the last day of the rental.
If the item isn’t returned to the owner, the renter will be charged $10 per day for every day the item isn’t returned, starting the day after the return date. After 3 days, the renter will be charged another rental price of the item in addition to the $30 they’ve already paid in late fees. The renter will continue to be charged the rental price of the item each week until the item is returned.
It’s very important that items rented are returned back to their owners by midnight on the return date. The owner may need it, or they may have another renter that wants to rent it. For late fees to begin, the owner must Make A Claim on our website after the midnight deadline of the return date by letting us know which outfit is late. We’ll take care of things from there.

When will I be charged for my rental/sale?

Once the owner accepts the rental/sale, you’ve got 2 hours to try on the rental/sale and cancel if it doesn’t work. If you choose to rent or buy, you’ll be charged as soon as the owner accepts the rental/sale. As long as you cancel before the try-on period ends, you won't be charged. 
You’ll be charged the rental price of the item if you cancel a rental and do not return it when you cancel.

How do I contact the owner?

After checking out the item on the owner’s profile, you’ll be able to send the owner a direct message. If you are having trouble contacting the owner please contact us at contact@DressedGPS.com and we will help you reach out to the owner!


Where should the renter and I meet?

You can meet them wherever you feel most comfortable. We recommend you meeting at a common meeting place like the campus hub, your dorm, or an academic building.
Many renters would prefer to take the item with them and try it on at home. If you’d prefer they didn’t do this, meet in a location with a bathroom so they can try on the item before taking it home.

What’s the late return policy?

Rentals are due back to the owner by midnight on the return date, the last day of the rental.
If the outfit isn’t returned to the owner, the renter will be charged $5 per day for every day the item isn’t returned,  starting midnight after the return date. After a week, the renter will be charged another rental price of the item (in addition to the $35 they’ve already paid in late fees). The renter will be charged the rental price of the item each week until the item is returned. 
It’s important that all items are returned to their owners by midnight on the return date. The owner may need it, or they may have another renter that has reserved it.

Who deals with the cleaning?

Renters are responsible for returning items in the same condition they were picked up in.
Owners are responsible for keeping their outfits in good, rentable and buyable condition.

What is the try-on period?

Everyone that rents or buys from you has 2 hours after reserving an item to try it on and cancel the rental or sale without getting charged. This ‘try-on period’ ends 2 hours after you accept the rental/sale.

How will I get paid?

The renter will be charged once they click the ‘Rent’ or ‘Buy’ button. You’ll be paid directly into your bank account a few days later (1-3).

What happens if something is stained or damaged?

Renters are responsible for all damage to the item. This is why it is important to have ‘before’ pictures at the time of the exchange so that in the event of damage, proper evidence can be shown. All damage must be reported within 2 days of the rental return date by making a claim to contact@dressedgps.com

How much does DressedGPS charge to upload an outfit?

How can I get more rentals and sales?

Here’s some advice on how to get more rentals and sales on DressedGPS!

1. Photos are the most important! The best outfits have lots of well-lit, high-res photos of varying types:
-Photos of you wearing the item
-Instagrams and party pics
-Retail shots from online

2. Be very descriptive
Describe the fit. Including your height, weight, and size can help potential renters and buyers find the perfect-fit that matches closely to theirs.

3. Describe the color. Do the photos do it justice? If not, talk about the colors in greater detail. The more specific, the better!

4. Share the link to your profiles.
Add the link to your profile on your IG Bio and FB profile or share it with friends
