All items shown on the Loopster website, unless otherwise mentioned, are nearly new i.e. second hand. We hand check all our items to ensure a good level of quality and condition.
Items may vary slightly from their pictures. The images of the items on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we make every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of an item. Your item may therefore vary slightly from those images. We will not be responsible or liable for any differences between an image and an actual item.
Currency. All prices are in GBP / £ sterling.
VAT. Our items are not subject to VAT.
Price errors. We try to ensure that our items are correctly priced. It is possible however that, despite our efforts, an item may occasionally be incorrectly priced. If an item’s correct price at your order date is lower than the stated price, we will charge the lower amount. If an item’s correct price at your order date is higher than the stated price, we will contact you before we process your order.
You may only place an order with us if you are 18 or over.
Please take the time to read and check your order at each step of the order process.
Order confirmation. After you have placed your order, you will receive an order confirmation setting out details of your items and the expected delivery time.
Acceptance of your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you this order confirmation, at which point a contract will come into existence between us.
If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order (this might be because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the item or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline), we will email you and we will not charge you for the item(s).
Incorrect order information. We will not be responsible for any loss or damage you may experience if you provide incorrect information during the order process and this leads to the wrong items being delivered or your items being sent to the wrong address.
We only sell to the UK. Unfortunately, we do not accept orders from or deliver to addresses outside of the UK.
The total amount in your basket must be paid upon ordering.
We accept payment with:
- Credit or debit card (Visa or MasterCard);
If the issuer of your payment card refuses to authorise payment to us, we will not be liable for any associated delay or non-delivery.
Items will be delivered by Royal Mail to the address provided by you on your order form.
Delivery costs. Postage fees are not included on the initial order page but will be displayed and added to your order before you make payment and confirm your order. For details of our postage fees click here.
Delivery time. We will let you know the estimated delivery time for your item during the order process.
If you are not at home when the item is delivered. If no one is available to take delivery and the item cannot be posted through your letterbox, Royal Mail will leave you a note informing you of how to rearrange delivery or collect the item from a local depot.
Faulty items. Loopster will carefully package all orders to ensure safe delivery. Please check the condition of your item when it arrives. If there is a fault with an item as result of the delivery process, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Delayed deliveries. If delivery of your item is delayed, email us at email@example.com and we will contact Royal Mail to help locate it. However, we will not be responsible for delivering an item late or not delivering part of an order if the delay is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
Delays outside of our control. If delivery of your item is delayed by an event outside of our reasonable control, we will contact you as soon as possible and will take steps to minimise the effect of the delay. Provided we do this, we will not be liable for delays caused by the event, but if there is a risk of substantial delay you may contact us if you would like a refund for any items you have paid for but not received.
When we may refuse to make a delivery. We may refuse to deliver an item to you if:
- You do not make any payment to us when it is due and you still do not make payment within 5 working days of us reminding you that payment is due;
- You do not, within a reasonable time of us asking for it, provide us with information that is necessary for us to provide you with an item; or
- You do not, within a reasonable time, allow us to deliver an item to you.
In any of those circumstances, we will refund any money you have paid in advance for items we have not delivered to you but we may deduct reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your actions.

SELLING CLOTHES TO US: HOW IT WORKS
1. REQUEST A LOOPY CLEAR-OUT BAG
To send us your nearly new children’s clothes, you will first need to open a Loopster account and request a Loopy Clear-Out Bag to fill with clothes to sell and send to us. Click here to open your Loopster account.
Once we receive your request, we will send you a Loopy Clear-Out Bag by post free of charge and will enclose a pre-addressed label for you to use when you return it to us.
Each Loopy Clear-Out Bag must be filled with at least fifteen (15) items of nearly new children’s clothing. If you send us less that fifteen (15) items in any one Loopy Clear-Out Bag, we reserve the right to deduct the postal cost which we paid so that you could send the bag to us for free from the payment we issue you for your clothes.
If you have considerably more than fifteen (15) nearly new clothes to send to us, you can order more than one Loopy Clear-Out Bag free of charge. If you are unsure as to how many bags you may need, feel free to contact us to discuss your requirements at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All clothes that we buy from you must meet the following criteria:
- Be children’s clothing from 0-8 years;
- The clothes must be nearly new, for example:
- all stitching, buttons and zips must be in good condition;
- no stains, holes or tears on the outside or inside of the clothes;
- colours must not be faded;
- no piling (little bobbles) on the materials;
- no markings (such as children’s names) on the outside or inside of the clothes; and
- all clothes must be recently washed and ironed.

- If in doubt, please don't send us anything of a lesser quality than you would be happy to buy.
- New clothes with the price tag still on will also be accepted and we will pay more for these clothes than for the equivalent used clothes.
- We do not accept any of the following types of items in any condition:
- Children’s shoes that have been worn or accessories such as: glasses, hats, caps, bonnets, belts, straps, gloves, scarfs, or bibs;
- Underwear: briefs, knickers, socks, long underwear;

We will not accept clothes that do not meet all of the above criteria.
4. IF YOU SEND US CLOTHES THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT
When requesting a Loopy Clear-Out Bag, you will be asked to choose what to do with any clothes that do not fulfil our criteria.
The options are:
(a) you can ask us to donate them to the charity ‘Traid’or
(b) ask us to return them to you (you must pay our reasonable postage fees if so).
(c) If later on, you change your mind about which option you wish to choose, we will not be responsible for your loss if we have already donated them to Traid.
5. GETTING YOUR LOOPY CLEAR- OUT BAG TO US
You can send your filled Loopy Clear-Out Bag to us by Royal Mail.
Please put your minimum of fifteen (15) items of clothing inside the pre-labelled Loopy Clear-Out Bag, close it completely with the adhesive strip and drop it at your nearest Post Office. It is free, postage has already been paid!
6. HOW MUCH WILL WE PAY YOU FOR YOUR CLOTHES?
To get an idea of how much we might pay you for an item of clothing before you send it to us, you can consult our ‘How much will I be paid?’ guide here.
Upon receiving your clothes, we will inspect and assess every item against our buying criteria.
We will then email you a non-negotiable price offer for each item we can accept.
If you want to accept our offer, you then need to select how you would like to be paid (see the Payment section below).
If you don’t want to accept our offer we will return your items to you (you must pay our reasonable postage costs for this).
Loopster will negotiate the shipping or postal cost of returning your clothes with you on an individual basis by email. We will send them by Royal Mail and they will be returned within 2-3 working days at an approximate cost of £3.00 to £4.00.
When you accept our offer of a price for an item, you will then need to tell us how you would like to be paid.
The options are:
(a) via Paypal. If you choose this option, we will make payment within fourteen days to your Paypal account;
(b) direct into your bank account. If you choose this option, you will need to provide us with your bank sort code and account number in your Loopster account and we will make payment within fourteen days of receiving this information.
