Browsing & Buying FAQ
To start a local search for vintage furniture available near you, click on "Near Me":
(Step 1) Click on the "Find Me" button to automatically input your current location
(Step 2) Now just browse the results! Listed items are sorted according to the shortest distance from your location.
If you would like to ask the Seller a question regarding a particular listing, when viewing the item, click on the tab that says "Comments and Questions" and fill out the short form. Your message will then be forwarded to the Seller, along with being posted on the listing. The Seller can then reply directly to you post. You will be notified via email when a reply has been sent.
Great! Add the item to your "Shopping Cart" which will then direct you to our Checkout page. We use PayPal to process all transactions safely and securely. After we have processed your payment, the Seller will then send you an email to set up a time and place to view the item in person. Remember to try to meet in a public place, if possible, and bring along a friend. You can then decide to take the item home with you, which will officially close the sale for all parties, or you can leave the item with the Seller. If you decide to leave the item, please contact us right away so we can begin to issue your refund.
We use PayPal to process all transactions safely and securely. PayPal accepts all major credit/debit cards. For help using PayPal, please contact PayPal directly with questions.
Unfortunately, there is no way to 100% verify a Seller is accurately listing the item they are selling. We ask all Sellers to withhold an agreement stating they are listing an item accurately, but it is on the honor code. It is important as the Buyer to ask the Seller the right questions and use common sense. If the deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
The "Confirmation Code" is a special code we use to verify the item you purchased on our site was then picked up by you, meaning we can issue the funds to the Seller. After you purchase an item on our site, we will send you an email containing the Confirmation Code. When you meet with the Seller and decide to take the item home with you, you will then need to give that same code to the Seller. Letter capitalization matters, so be sure to supply the code to the Seller exactly as it looks in your email! An example Confirmation Code could look similar to this: H832ILd8
If the item you purchased does not match what the original listing described, simply do not take the item home with you, then contact us right away and we will issue you a refund. Once you take the item home with you, it cannot be returned to the Seller for a refund!
As we are still new to the world, it may take a bit of time for us to build up our Classifieds marketplace, which may mean limited results in your area for the time being - but we’re doing our best to change that! Want to help us out? Spread the word about RECOVETD in your city and neighborhood, let everyone know where they should be selling their used furniture!
