eBay acquires secondhand clothing marketplace Twice to boost its Valet selling service


eBay has acquired secondhand clothing and accessories marketplace Twice, in order to beef up its Valet service, which sells used apparel on behalf of its customers. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.

This is the first buy for eBay since it parted ways with PayPal last Friday.

Twice said that its technical leadership and engineering team will join eBay to power its Valet service, which recently expanded to help users sell high-value designer clothing easily.

The company, which launched in 2012 and has been backed by venture capital firm Andreesen Horowitz, will slowly wind down its current operations. It’s currently running sales to clear out its inventory and won’t accept returns after July 30.
