Broke But Love Shopping? Swap Clothes, Shoes & Bags With Other Women For Free!

Ten-Second Takeaway

This For That is a women-only community that lets its members exchange stuff from their closets. Bags, clothes, jewellery, footwear or even mak eup… you can exchange anything at mutually agreed terms and the platform facilitates the final swap by sending a messenger who collects and delivers packages for a convenience charge of a mere INR 150. The service is currently available in Delhi and NCR and some parts of Haryana. 

Buying Is Boring

Remember the joy of raiding your bestie’s cupboard? Or having privileged access to your mom’s make up? Well, This For That let’s you do it virtually and with generous strangers from across the city. It’s a pure barter platform where women open up their closets to others for potential swaps between two willing takers, both of who like what they’re getting from the deal.

The platform has an in-app currency called credits that women use to assign value to products. The value could be anything between 30-70% of the product’s original price depending on how old the article is, how worn-out/flawless its condition or what brand you’re offering. Once you’ve decided on the credits, you go about clicking the prettiest photos and uploading the necessary product details on the site. The This For That team then steps in as a moderator to ensure your credits are fair and the quality of your item isn’t dodgy. Usually, members exchange things of equal credits {for instance, an INR 1,200 credits worth of dress for a bag for INR 1,200 credits}.

Once approved, your item goes up on the website and anyone who likes it can initiate a swap request. The two people only pay for delivery {INR 150}.

So Simple, So Sorted

People can agree to exchange stuff for a limited period or forever.

You’re probably wondering what happens if someone likes something from your wardrobe but you don’t like anything from the other party {that or vice versa}. Well, in that case, you can purchase credits that cost a mere 10% of the product’s credits {if the dress is for 4,000 credits, you’ll need to pay only INR 400}. The purchased credits then get added to the other party’s account and they can use it in a similar situation.

Have more questions on what happens if the product doesn’t turn out as great as the photos? Or what if the other person cancels the swap or isn’t responding to your swap for request? Or other random concerns are also patiently answered by the community managers who hand hold people through every step of the way. Or, read here.

So, We're Saying...

Why rent when you can own and why pay when you can get away with only a fraction of the shipping cost? You’ve not just got viewing rights into other fashionable women’s wardrobes, you can get Zara, Mango, H&M and other favourite brands at 90% discounts. In that sense, it’s even better than ‘pre-loved’ goods.

All the broke but fabulous folks, this is just what you need in your life. Seriously.

*BRB* We’re cleaning our cupboard.
