Frequently Asked Questions

1How much do you pay for each container?

Every container is different! Just head over to our free quote page and find out how much your containers will earn you.

2Is this legal?

You are permitted to sell any baby formula you have acquired legally and not through government programs like WIC (it is a violation of Federal regulations to attempt to sell or gift formula that was obtained through the WIC Program).

3What are the expiration date guidelines?

SellFormula will purchase any listed baby formula that has more than 6 months before the expiration date.

4My baby formula has personal information on it; should I remove the label?

No, please leave it on! We have a special mechanism to remove this without damaging the can or case. If you'd like, you could take a felt tip marker and black out any personal information.

5What are the minimum and maximum amounts I can sell?

The minimum is $48 — there is no maximum! For really big purchases, call us at 1-866-617-SELL (7355) for more help!

6What happens if I send a package that contains the wrong brand, shorter expiration, or a smashed or rusted container?

We will deduct from the quoted price based on the extent of the damage. All items we can't purchase will be returned at the expense of the seller. Please not that we do not purchase cans that are rusty.

7My brand isn't on the sell page list. Do you buy them?

You may be in luck. Send us a message via the Contact page and we will reply within 24 hrs and let you know.

8Do you buy Gerber or Sam's Club products?

We do buy Gerber products! Unfortunately, we are not purchasing Sam's Club products at the moment.

9Do you purchase Sample Size cans?

No we do not. We only purchase the sizes that are listed on our sell page.

10How do I ship my formula?

SellFormula will send you a free pre-paid shipping label for use with UPS. Just give it to any UPS driver or drop it off in any UPS location.

11How do I know if you received my package?
