HOW DOES THE SELLING PROCESS WORK?
Our selling process is simple. Find the sarees and lehengas that are in good condition but you don't wear them anymore.

HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT FOR MY SAREE OR LEHENGA?
As a rule of thumb a used saree or lehenga in good condition should fetch around 30% of the retail market price of a similar new one depending on the condition, the fabric and the style. Back

DO YOU REDUCE THE PRICE?
Your item will remain listed at the agreed price for the full minimum listing period of 4 weeks. After that we may reduce the price up to the lowest price you are willing to accept to encourage a sale. If it doesn't sell even then, we will return the item to you.

WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND AND WANT IT BACK?
No problem. You can have your items back at any time. You simply need to inform us by emailing to “firstname.lastname@example.org” with the SKU number of the item as listed on the site. If you do request your item back before the end of the 8-week listing period, you will be charged an administration fee of Rs. 400 per item plus the cost of shipping. This is to help us cover the cost of listing. If you request your items back after the 8-week period there will be no administration fee. Back
WHAT IF MY ITEM DOESN'T SELL?
We do our best to ensure your item sells. We also encourage you to promote the site in your social network to expedite the sale. However, sometimes the right owner just can't be found even after reducing the price. If we can't sell your item we will offer three options. Either we will try to reduce the price further or we will return it to you at your expense or we can donate the item to charity on your behalf. Back
HOW DO I GET PAID?
Once your item sells, we hold the money for 15 business days. This is to allow for potential issues reported by the buyer. If there is no issue, we transfer the sale value (minus our commission, VAT and any other applicable charges) to you. We will contact you to provide bank details to ensure the safe transfer of your money. Back
CAN I SELL BACK THE ITEM I BOUGHT FROM YOU?
Absolutely. We will re-price the item and put it up on sale and you will get paid when it sells.

WHY SHOULDN'T I SELL ON OLX?
OLX and Quickr are excellent solutions for some. Most of our customers like hassle free service for a small cost to them. They ship items to us, we take care of everything and they get the money when it sells. We professionally appraise it, photograph it, post it on the site and occasionally repair it. Since in our model, we handle all the activities, they don't have to deal with interacting, meeting, and negotiating with the strangers. Some of our customers have told us about crank callers, off color communications, invasion into their privacy etc. Back

Once Again maintains a 100% confidentiality policy for all person(s) using the portal to buy or sell merchandise. Our executives are specially trained to safeguard the interest of our buyers and sellers. The identity of all buyers and sellers are kept confidential at all times. Back
HOW DO I KNOW THAT THE ITEMS ARE IN GOOD CONDITION?
Most items listed on Once Again tend to be dressy. You may find some items that have never been worn at all. Others have been worn on occasions for short duration. To help you understand, please look at the "Condition" listed on the item’s page. We have bucketed all items into 3 conditions:
ARE PRE-OWNED ITEMS CLEANED?
ARE THE IMAGES SHOWN ON YOUR WEBSITE OF THE ACTUAL ITEMS LISTED FOR SALE?
Yes, we take detailed images of every product that we sell. We also try to provide images of the areas of wear for a pre-owned item. Back
IS MY INFORMATION SECURE?
HOW CAN I SEARCH FOR AN ITEM ON THE SITE?
You may choose to browse leisurely through our saree or lehenga or designer blouse collection or you may search by a keyword (such as chanderi or silk). Back
WHAT IF I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT AN ITEM?
You can always send us an email at “question@ onceaga. in” or call us at +91-886-007-7960.
DO YOU SHIP TO INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS?
Our international payment gateway is not working right now so at this point we are taking international orders manually only. You can send us an email with the product name and SKU number or product link at email@example.com and we will contact you back for the shipping details. Back
DO YOU SHIP IN WHOLE OF INDIA?
WHAT ARE MY PAYMENT OPTIONS?
We accept American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Cash cards and bank transfers. Back
WHAT'S YOUR RETURN POLICY?
We put in a lot of effort in providing you all the details of the item like multiple images, condition, fabric, size, weight, work, description etc. We believe that this information is enough for you to make the right call without actually seeing it. So at this point we are not taking any returns. However, you can always sell it back to us after wearing it. We will re-price it and put it up for sale again and you will get the money when it sells. Back
WHAT ABOUT THE BLOUSE?
Every listing states what the item comes with, saree, blouse, dupatta etc. If there is pre-stitched blouse, it also states the size and the margins. Back
WHAT IF I DON’T WANT THE INCLUDED BLOUSE OR I FEEL THAT IT MAY NOT FIT?
If the blouse has a border or a motif, you can always cut it off and stitch it to a matching blouse. We would suggest that you take it to a tailor unless you are a pro. If you don’t want to do that, you can always choose a brand new designer blouse from our collection. Back
HOW OFTEN DO YOU GET A NEW SHIPMENT?
There is no fixed schedule. As people like you send us their items we put them up for sale. Back
WHY DO I NEED TO CREATE AN ACCOUNT WITH YOU?
There are multiple reasons. If you create an account, we could email you the latest offers or newsletter to you. If you are selling your items, we can associate your account with your items. If you are buying, your billing/shipping info is saved with us for future use. Please rest assured, we don’t share your information with anyone so you have nothing to worry. Back
WHY DO YOU NEED MY PHONE NUMBER?
If you are buying, we may call you to confirm your order. If you are sending us your items, we may call you to confirm the receipt of your stuff.
