Here are some typical terms used when selling used cloth diapers.
NIP(New in Package)
This really depends on the brand but generally you can ask retail but not more than that. And that would include shipping(more later) and fees(more later).
JP or PREPPED(Just prepped but never on the bum)
So you bought a diaper, prepped it and then decided it wasn’t going to work out. It is no longer NIP so you can’t ask retail but you can generally ask 80% to 90% as long as you are completely honest and that the diaper never touched a booty. That includes shipping and fees.
EUC(Excellent Used Condition)
Key word USED. This means your diaper was used but is still in pristine condition-no stains, stinks, shot elastic, holes, spots, smears, dots, or any other flaws that someone could come up with. Generally you can ask 70% to 80% of retail price. Again a lot depends on brand and that would include shipping and fees. And in my honest opinion you can’t have an EEEEEEUC diaper or even an EEUC diaper. Used is used and please only use one E! Otherwise it would be NIP or JP.
VGUC(Very Good Used Condition)-diaper is used and may have some wear but overall is in good shape for another mama to use on her baby. Generally asking price is 60%-70% depending on how much wear and if there is any minor flaws. Again depends on brand, and would include shipping and fees.
GUC-(Good Used Condition)-diaper is well loved, has minor flaws, relaxed elastic, pilling, velcro is curling, or the start of a tiny hole. Make sure to include any and all of that in your description. Generally asking price would be 30%-60% depending on amount of wear and tear. You guessed it: depends on brand, and would include shipping and fees.
FUC (Fair Used Condition) or Play Condition-diaper has several flaws including many of the above listed or has any staining. Pricing should generally be FFS(free for shipping) to 30% including shipping and fees.
If any of your diapers have stains, it will automatically fall into the GUC or FUC categories so make sure you sun sun sun those babies so you can get more money for them.
