If you are tired of letting your gently used clothes and other items collect dust in your closet, the Twig app is the one you've been waiting for.

Twig is taking the world by storm. It is a unique online platform that lets you effortlessly turn your unused items into cash instantly. No more back-and-forth messages and waiting around to sell your items.

In this article, we will explore what Twig is and how it works. So, let's dive in and discover how Twig can help you declutter your home and make some extra money.

What is the Twig app?

Twig is a fintech app that allows users to sell their old clothes and electronics and receive instant cash. It provides a user-friendly platform for people who want to declutter their homes and make some extra money.

Unlike other reselling platforms, Twig offers a simple and hassle-free way to sell your items. With Twig, users can simply upload their items, receive a valuation, and then choose to ship the items off to Twig for instant cash. This eliminates the need to meet with potential buyers or negotiate prices.

The app also features an in-app feature where users can plant trees, and for every tree planted in the app, a real tree is planted in the world. It adds an extra benefit by allowing users to contribute to reforestation efforts while selling their used items.

How does the Twig app work?

Twig describes itself as a new-generation circular economy finance where you can offload your unwanted items in exchange for instant cash.

After verifying your Twig account, you get to start selling things. All you have to do is snap a few photos of the item you wish to sell, and choose the category it falls under (for example, you can select clothing, shoes, bags, electronics, etc).

Subsequently, you will need to fill in a few details about the item such as its condition, and then the app gives you a free valuation for the item using its database of prices on items in the primary and secondary markets.

Once you accept the value that is presented to you, the amount will be either deposited instantly into your Twig Visa Debit Card or will be deposited once it arrives in our warehouse, depending on whether you have a third-party card linked to the app.

After that, you need to ship your items to their warehouse. Once they receive your items, they will go through Twig's quality assurance system. They will put them into the secondary market if they reach their standards in terms of quality, cleanliness, authenticity and so on.

What happens if the items do not pass the quality tests?

In case your items don't pass the quality tests, they will be returned to you. Folks at Twig will contact you via email and you will be charged a fee of £2.80 for the shipping costs of returning your items, which will be debited from your Twig Visa Debit card.

If you have a third-party card on Twig, they will hold a deposit for your items until they pass quality assurance. If your items do not pass, Twig will debit that holding deposit from your third-party card. So make sure the items you sell are in good shape.

And that covers almost all the basics about the Twig app. Stay tuned for more content on this viral app. In the meantime, read about other viral apps such as BeReal and ChatGPT.
