Trading is not currently supported on Slang. When payment for the full value of items is not exchanged through the Slang system, we cannot guarantee that both parties will ship their items to each other as promised or as described. For this reason, we discourage users from trading on Slang as they are not protected.

To create a listing, click on the "sell" button (the camera icon) in the app, take photos of the item you wish to sell, fill in the required information (description, price, size etc) and boom - you've made a listing!
Please remember to only list items that fall within our selling guidelines and to accurately describe your item!
We’ve put a lot of time into trying to help you take the best photos possible. Sell your items quickly by following these helpful tips:
Slang is a marketplace for sneakers. Please refrain from listing items that do not fall into this category. Such listings clutter the marketplace and make shopping for kicks more difficult and less enjoyable for others.
Pre-owned items can be listed on Slang if they are clean and in good condition. All items must be clearly and accurately represented.
Slang prohibits the sale of replicas or fakes. Real recognize real. Members who buy, list, or otherwise attempt to sell replicas or fakes risk immediate and permanent suspension from Slang. Note, using a brand name to falsely describe or promote an item violates trademark law, even if the item is not explicitly "counterfeit". For example, the use of the words "inspired by" followed by a brand (for example "inspired by the Yeezy II") is prohibited on our platform.
If we feel that your listing violates these guidelines in any way, we reserve the right to remove it and may take other actions, including restricting your future buying and selling privileges on Slang.
Congratulations on your sale! When your item sells, we automatically send you a pre-paid, pre-addressed, pre-insured UPS Priority Mail shipping label. Please ensure you use our shipping label to ship out your order to avoid any delay in receiving your earnings, as each label has a tracking number connected with each order for us to track on our end. If our shipping label is not used, we cannot compensate or reimburse users if a package is lost in transit since we will not have access to any tracking information.
When you receive our shipping label, we recommend you print it out and ship out your sale as soon as possible, as the buyer is eagerly awaiting her item! Most of our sellers ship within 2 days of purchase.
We want you to feel secure when selling on Slang. When your item sells, we send you a pre-paid, pre-addressed UPS Priority Mail shipping label to put on your package. As long as you use the Slang-provided label and the package is scanned into the UPS tracking system, you will be fully covered by Slang should the package get lost in transit by UPS. Any orders over $700 will require a signature upon delivery to provide additional protection. When the package is first scanned into the UPS mail stream, we send both you and the buyer an email with the tracking information.
When UPS tells us the item has been delivered, we notify the buyer and ask them to review and accept their order. Once your order has been delivered and accepted by your buyer, we will release your funds to your debit card.
If a buyer reports a problem with their order, we will ask them to upload details and photos. The Slang team then carefully reviews the case and offers
If a buyer reports a problem with their order, we will ask them to upload details and photos. The Slang team then carefully reviews the case and offers a resolution.
All sales are final on Slang. However, we take an active role in each and every purchase made on Slang to ensure both the buyer and seller have a great experience. A buyer may open a case with us if they don't receive their item or the item they receive is not as described within the listing. This means a buyer cannot return an item they purchased on Slang if the item simply does not fit or they no longer want the item - as long as the seller accurately described the item in the listing.
If the buyer receives an item that is not as described within the listing, is sent the wrong item, or is in some other way not as described, the buyer can report their problem to us within 2 days of delivery through the app or on the web. When a case is opened, the buyer is asked to upload photos and offer details of the item. If the return is verified, we assist the buyer in returning the item to the seller and offer them a full refund.
To avoid a problem with a sale, we advise sellers to be as descriptive and detailed as possible when creating your listings. We encourage buyers to review the listing photos, description and item condition, and if you have any questions, please ask the seller for additional details, measurements or photos. Sellers are usually more than happy to provide additional information.
When a buyer reports a problem with their order, we ask them to submit supporting documentation including photos and a list of issues. Our team will then review the photos and information provided, the seller's listing (photos, description and all communication between buyer and seller), and other relevant documentation prior to coming to a resolution. We recommend that all sellers accurately describe their items by providing clear, representative photos that fully show the condition of the item and a detailed description.
Both the buyer and seller will be notified via email once there is a resolution.
We do not support international shipping outside of the United States and its Territories at this time.
Unfortunately, our shipping label provider does not support shipping to APO or military addresses.
Yes, we support shipping to PO boxes.
We highly recommend that all sneakers are shipped “double-boxed,” meaning that the sneakers (and their original box, if provided) are enclosed within the shipping box.
Just remember - and this is important! - you need to ship in a box that is equal to or smaller than the size you specified when creating your listing. It also must be equal to or less than the specified weight. Shipping in a larger or heavier box may cause delays in shipping and receiving your earnings.
Purchasing or selling an item listed on Slang using PayPal or any means other than Slang checkout is called an "offline transaction" and is prohibited.
When payment for the full value of the item is not exchanged through the Slang system, we cannot guarantee that both parties ship and transact as promised. If we don't process payment, we aren't able to refund the buyer if something goes wrong (for example, if the seller never ships your item or the item you receive is not as described in the listing). As a result, our SlangSecure™ buyer protection program does not cover offline transactions. In addition, if we don’t process payment, we can't guarantee that the seller receives their earnings if they deliver the item as described.
Taking transactions offline is harmful and hurts everyone. Members who repeatedly take transactions offline will have their future buying and selling privileges restricted on Slang.
If you are approached to take a transaction offline, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may report a listing that violates our policies and guidelines at any time. Simply tap the “...” icon on the front of the listing and select “Report.”
Once you submit, the report will be automatically sent to our moderation team who will investigate. We ask that you not engage with the listing or its owner directly, as this can cause problems for all parties involved.

If your sneakers are reported as fake, they will be shipped to the Slang office, where they will undergo an authenticity check. If the sneakers proves to be fake, the buyer will get a refund. The seller will be invoiced for shipping cost and once that is paid, the sneakers will be shipped to him.
