The new Rebag+ membership program offers a unique approach to luxury resale, allowing customers to use their membership contributions toward a purchase in what the company described as a “fund now, buy later” scheme.

To join, members must contribute a minimum of $50 per month or $500 per year, but all of those contributions are fully converted to R+ Credit, which can be used to buy products at Rebag. Whether a user chooses to contribute monthly or yearly, Rebag adds a 2% monthly R+ Bonus to member contributions, generating up to 27% more to spend at Rebag within 12 months.

Rebag+ members also receive 10% lower prices on all items, access to weekly new arrivals and sales, free shipping and returns and up to 5% higher payouts when selling products. Members can also skip their monthly contribution whenever they need to, as well as cancel or request a refund of their R+ Credit at any time.

“We are thrilled to introduce Rebag+ as a testament to our commitment to providing the ultimate luxury resale experience,” said Charles Gorra, CEO and Founder of Rebag in a statement. “By allowing our customers to fund now, buy later, we continue to invest in customer relationships and set new standards in the industry.”
