Glou Beauty Marketplace is a marketplace that makes it easy to buy and sell beauty products from other beauty lovers. No where on the web is it easier to list multiple items, or shop from multiple sellers with a single cart.
It's the only dedicated marketplace to makeup, skincare, and beauty related items.
As a S//Shopper it's easy to search for what you're looking for, add items to your cart, and checkout in a single transaction. If what you're looking for isn't available for sale at the moment, you can list it as an "In Search Of" aka ISO and as soon as someone posts one for sale or swap, they'll be alerted that you are looking for that item.
As a S//Seller it's easy to list items you have available for sale. There is a built in shipping label feature, so when your item is sold, you can print and pop your item in the post right away.
If you're interested in S//Swapping for something you want, all you have to do is include #swapWant as one of your tags in your ISO listing.
If you're open to S//Swapping something you have, all you have to do is include #swapHave in your listing.
Does it cost me anything to use the site?
It's free to list and use the platform. The marketplace usually takes a tiny commission 5%, but for now that has been suspended to encourage people to use the proceeds from their sales for charitable purposes.
I don't live in the US... Can I use the site?
Unfortunately, at the moment only current residents of the US can make purchases. The shipping feature isn't set up for international use yet. However, the work around is that you can set your shipping as a flat fee, but you will need to make your own shipping arrangements. The shipping label creator only works with the United States Postal Service.
All prices are in USD.
What are the guidelines or rules for using the site?
That can be found in our terms and conditions. As well as in this blog post:
How do I become a verified seller?
Once you use your account to make a listing, your profile will be reviewed within 24 hours.
Here is what we are looking for:
-Original photos in the listings
-Completed seller profile (profile picture, brief bio, return policy)
How are payments processed on the Marketplace? Is it safe?
Payments are processed by Stripe which means that their super-fancy-new-age-anti-fraud-bad-guy-catching-technology is behind every transaction. Stripe is the world leader in payment processing. We don’t store or have access to any of your payment information at any point, ever. If you’ve ever bought anything through Shopify planned a trip on booking.com, ordered from Glossier, or used Lyft, Stripe is the company powering that whole transaction.
What can be bought/sold on the marketplace?
- Brand name makeup, skincare, and beauty related items of any size
- Subscription box items
- Small batch independent brand makeup
In general, most items sold are brand new or swatched. The condition of the item will always be listed and you are always welcome to request proof of purchase from the seller. We are simply the service that connects buyers and sellers. Buying and selling is at your own risk. Please use common sense.
