All The Answers

Here are some of the most common questions we receive. Maybe you have the same?

How do I know I’ll get my money?

We have taken several measures to make the payments secure and to avoid fraud. We use PayPal and Stripe for purchases to ensure the payments are secure and that you can pay with most available cards.

When a buyer pays for a product, the amount is sent to Sharesson. The amount is held until the buyer confirms that the product has arrived. The amount is then released to the seller.

To make the transactions even more trustworthy, the seller has to give their bank details to Stripe upon seller registration. The reason is, of course, so that you as a seller, can receive your money. But it also means that any fraud attempt will be very easily tracked and reported to authorities. On top of these measures, there is a built-in rating and review system for both buyers and sellers to assure the highest standard for all connections. We want Sharesson to be a safe place for awesome outdoor people to connect. That’s why you are here, right?

How do I handle shipping costs?

You can allow both shipping and pick-up for your products. You specify the shipping cost under ”Delivery fee.” You can use the ”Additional items” field to add international shipping cost, and specify in your description where you can send your product to. For now, you have to look up your shipping cost yourself, but we will soon integrate that function here on Sharesson.

Who can buy?

Anybody around the world, who is in need of great outdoor products.

Who can sell?

Individuals, brands, retailers, distributors, agents, and sales reps.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast with:

- a garage/wardrobe/house full of unused, perfectly fine outdoor gear that collects dust you can list and sell those products and earn 80% of the listing price

If you are an outdoor brand or an outdoor retailer and have:

- returned goods that are perfectly fine and are in great shape

- repaired/recycled products that are in perfectly fine condition and can still be used

- stock of perfectly fine gear that is “outdated” but in new or great condition you can list and sell those products and earn 80% of the listing price

If you are a distributor, agent, or sales rep of outdoor products and have:

- stock of perfectly fine gear that is “outdated” but in new or great condition

- samples of perfectly fine gear you can list and sell those products on and earn 80% of the listing price

If you are an outdoor product manufacturer and have:

- overstock of perfectly fine outdoor gear

- canceled products in perfectly fine condition

- products with minor defects (need to state the defects clearly), but that function perfectly fine you can list and sell those products and earn 80% of the listing price

Our mission is to keep great gear from landfills, simple as that! No matter if the products are from a previous collection, samples, the “wrong” color, or a repaired product that is almost as new again, we want to get those products in peoples hands, to be used so that they can enjoy their time in nature at an affordable price.
