Founded in 2012 as a California Benefit Corporation, Yerdle has been called a “sharing economy powerhouse” by Fortune Magazine for its innovative approach to recommerce. Yerdle Recommerce provides logistics and technology that makes it easy for brands to buy back and resell their items. By taking advantage of resale, brands take control of the growing secondary retail market – increasing profits, deepening customer engagement, and lowering the environmental and social cost of the stuff we buy.

Yerdle Recommerce began as a used goods marketplace, helping 950,000 members share more than 1.2 million items, from jackets to tents. Today, Yerdle Recommerce is proud to support iconic brands such as Patagonia and Eileen Fisher in their efforts to develop new business models that deepen customer engagement. In the coming months, we're excited to grow along with other brands willing to take similar leaps. 


More than 25,000 items get shipped through Yerdle every month, and companies such as Levi’s and Patagonia have used it to distribute unsold merchandise.
