Revenue rose 35% to $63.3 million, ThredUp said. FactSet consensus called for a loss of 16 cents a share on sales of $62 million.
“Supply continues to appear endless, demand for secondhand is increasing with more first-time buyers trying ThredUp, and we’re doubling down on infrastructure investments,” ThredUp Chief Executive and co-founder James Reinhart said in a statement.
ThredUp guided for fourth-quarter revenue in a range between $69 million and $71 million, and fiscal 2021 revenue between $248 million and $250 million.

RealReal’s supply ramped “nicely, driven by at-home concierge appointments and our expanded retail footprint,” Chief Executive and founder Julie Wainwright said in a statement.
“Based on what we know today, we believe the operational and supply impacts to our business from COVID-19 are effectively behind us, and we are well positioned for a strong holiday season,” Wainwright said.
Moreover, RealReal’s business model is largely insulated from the supply chain shortages and some of the inflationary impacts many retailers are experiencing, she said.
RealReal went public in June 2019.
