Here’s how to loan your bag through Share Our Style in 7 easy steps…

We provide insurance for eligible owners*.


Step 1
List your bag

Step 2
Set your nightly rental charge and delivery options

Choose how much to charge for your bag per night (12:00pm to 11:59am).

You may wish to raise or lower the cost depending on the popularity or scarcity of your bag.  The minimum nightly rental fee is £15.

You may offer shipping, pickup or both options.  For shipping the bag must be sent using Royal Mail’sGuaranteed by 1pm’ service and the renter pays for the delivery and return.  To calculate the postage cost please visit www.royalmail.com.  For pickup you need to agree a time and a place to meet the renter.

Once you’ve listed your bag, we’ll be in touch for some more details about you to check your eligibility for our insurance.  Please see our Terms and Conditions and the Share Our Style Guarantee for details.

If eligible your bag will be covered for the duration of the rental period.  Cover begins at 12:00pm on the day of let through to 11:59am on the day of return.  We do not cover loss or damage while your bag is in transit to or from your paying renter.  Please refer to our Terms and Conditions and the Share Our Style Guarantee for further details.


Step 3
Approve a rental request

When someone wants to rent your bag, click ‘View conversation’ from your confirmation email (which will include the rental dates) and you’ll have 3 days to accept the rental request.

If you’re unable to respond then the request is automatically declined after 3 days.  Before accepting a booking check the renter has selected the correct delivery option to ensure you receive shipping fees, if applicable, and check you can meet the dates.  Remember there is no Royal Mail service on a Sunday.


Step 4
Payment

Once you approve the booking, you’ll receive payment (minus fees from us and PayPal) within 7 days.

You should use Share Our Style’s messenger throughout the process to communicate with the renter, such as arranging to meet up if the pickup option is selected.


Step 5
Deliver the bag to the renter

Now it’s up to you to make sure the renter receives your bag on the first day of the rental period.  Don’t forget to take photos of your bag before you ship it to or exchange it with the renter.

Important note if you’ve selected the shipping option:
You must send your bag to the renter using Royal Mail’s ‘Guaranteed by 1pm’ service.  We suggest that you take a picture of the package which clearly shows the renter’s address and include your address (as the sender), retain the postal receipt, check the building name or number and postcode printed on your Post Office receipt and send the renter the tracking reference number and your address for return of the package.
Please note service restrictions may apply and additional fees are charged for Saturday deliveries.
Important note if you’ve selected the pickup option:
The pickup should take place at or after 12:00pm on the first day of the rental period and should be returned no later than 11:59am on the last day of the rental period.  If pickup or return occurs outside of these times your bag will not be covered, even if you’re eligible for our Share Our Style Guarantee.
You’ll need to take 2 copies of the Pickup receipt for the start of the rental for the initial pickup and 2 copies of the Pickup receipt for the end of the rental on its return.  Each copy needs to be read and signed by both parties to ensure both of you get a copy.  You can find the receipts on our pickup receipts page.
We also suggest that you take a photo of the renter with your bag.
Please remember that you’ll be meeting someone you don’t know so you need to be comfortable about both the pickup meeting and its location.

Step 6
Bag return

The renter should return the bag as previously agreed with you.  We recommend you take photos of your bag as soon as you receive it.

Important note if you’ve selected the shipping option:
The renter must also use Royal Mail’s ‘Guaranteed by 1pm’ services and you should receive your bag by 1pm the day after the last day of the rental period.
We suggest that the renter sends you the tracking reference number once the item is on its way back to you but feel free to ask them for it.  The renter will pay for the return postage when your bag is posted back to you.  If your bag doesn’t arrive by 1pm on the last rental day please contact the renter as soon as possible.  If you believe something has gone wrong please refer to our Share Our Style Guarantee.
Important note if you’ve selected the pickup option:
You should arrange to pickup your bag by 11:59am on the last day of the rental period.  Don’t forget to take 2 copies of the Pickup receipt for the end of the rental as detailed in Step 5.  If return occurs outside of these times your bag will not be covered even if you’re eligible for our Share Our Style Guarantee.

Step 7
Give feedback

After a rental has been completed both you and the renter will be invited to review. You can do this once the renter has ‘marked the order complete’.  Either click ‘Give feedback’ button in your order completed email, or go straight to your messages on Share Our Style.

We are creating a community of designer handbag lovers so it is essential that you can review your experience. We ask that reviews are truthful and clear.  Please do not include any personally identifiable information in a review such as a person’s last name or address.

It’s as simple as that!
