Frequently Asked Questions
Who owns and runs The Kinky Boutique and why did it come about?
We are Sienna and Dani, women like you who wanted to earn some extra cash whilst having fun at the same time. So, in 2013 we began our journey of selling our worn panties and tights through eBay. We quickly became top sellers, earning in excess of 2k per month! But the highs came with the lows, we were charged extortionate fees by eBay and PayPal and we were always running the risk of being exposed to our buyers finding out our real identity via PayPal. We also faced the frustration of eBay regularly removing our listings and on occasions suspending our accounts for up to 30 days at a time, crippling our earning potential!
How much is membership?
We do not charge any commission on the items that you sell, therefore you keep the money you have earned. To enable us to maintain, drive traffic to and moderate the site, and act upon suggestions for improvement by our members, we charge a small monthly membership of £15. We also partake in regular marketing activity to drive more buyers to The Kinky Boutique to increase your sales.
Can my friend and I share a profile?
No. We do not allow you to share a profile with friends or other panty sellers. Memberships must be purchased individually enabling you to create your own personalised, unique profile / Boutique. You must use your own photos when modelling any items you have for sale. We will not tolerate any member using another members’ photos. Any breaches of our policies will result in an account being terminated.
Do I have to show my face?
No. We advise that you do not show your face to protect your identity. We do all we can to ensure your anonymity. However, this is your choice. We cannot be held responsible for any incident that has taken place if you have released your identity.
Can you tell me more about the anonymous payment system?
From our own experience and research into the marketplace, one of the biggest concerns amongst underwear sellers was the risk of their identity and personal information being exposed to buyers through payment gateways such as PayPal.
How much can I expect to make selling my items?
It is entirely down to you. The more you do, the more you earn!
How do I sell items?
You must be a member to sell your goods. If you are a member, you can create your profile and Boutique and fill it with all items you have for sale.
What fetish Items can I Sell on this website?
You can sell used / worn panties, tights / pantyhose, socks, shoes, photos, video clips and other intimate items. If you are unsure if you are allowed to sell a particular item or not, just email and ask and we’ll let you know.
Why is PayPal not allowed when Selling Dirty Panties?
PayPal T&C state that ‘Adults Only’ transactions (including but not limited to fetish items such as Dirty Panties, Fetish Items, Digital Media, Adults Website Membership, etc.) are not permitted with the usage of the PayPal service.
Is my personal information safe?
Yes. We do not sell or give any of our members’ information to any third parties. We take your privacy very seriously.
How can I let others know of my transaction experience with a buyer?
Members’ reviews of transactions are very important! When your transaction is completed please leave a rating and feedback for the buyer and transaction.
How do I become a “Featured” Seller?
Members can become featured in several ways. The simplest method is just to be an active user of the site and participate regularly. Every fortnight members’ activity will be reviewed and members will be added to the featured section if appropriate.
How do I set up my boutique and start adding items?
You should have received a welcome email just after you signed up, which also contains user guides from mobile and laptop. You can view the guide here if you haven’t received your welcome email.
Firstly try logging out and back into your account again. When you are uploading a product, try to complete all the other information field ie.

If you’re successful, save the product and continue selling! If you’re still experiencing difficulty having tried the above, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a member of the technical team will be in touch within the next 24 hours to help resolve your issue.
How do I cancel my membership?
Go to your profile and then orders and click cancel to cancel your membership.
What if I have a problem with a transaction or another member?
The Kinky Boutique is not responsible for transactions between members and therefore cannot provide reimbursement for transactions gone wrong. Please make sure you are comfortable with the buyer or seller before attempting a transaction. If you do have a problem with a user or transaction, do let us know by contacting us through the appropriate email address listed on the site. Abuse and fraud is not tolerated here and may result in removal of the problem member from the site but we must be made aware of any problem so that we can investigate.
