Not sure how to sell your item? We’ve seen it all and listed effective selling tips on how to price and share so that you can make some $$$!
1) What sells quickly?
Items that buyers are already in the market for.
If you haven’t seen it in the stores, in your social feeds or on the street, it may be a longer sell, but still possible, just with a little patience.
Items that sell quickly don’t have to be trendy items, they can be classics, fantastic quality classics; for example Bally flats, Burberry rain coats and Prada clutches.
2) Setting a price.
Forget what you originally paid, what is the preloved market value now? Don’t let the original purchase price overly inflate what its resale value really is.
We find items usually sell for 70% off the original retail
Below are relevant pieces, if items aren’t classics or on trend we recommend discounting further.
Example: $450 original retail = $125 resale value
Marc by Marc Jacobs Percy
Original Retail Price $200
SOLD for $60
Burberry Nova Check
Original Retail Price $400
SOLD for $130
Mackage Cody F5
Original Retail Price $500
SOLD for $145
Pieces sell for 50% off original retail when the item is a current style & strong brand.
3) Nice to see you!
It always helps to know who you are buying off of, or selling to! In your profile you can add a photo and say a few words about yourself or your closet.
Feel free to comment on other peoples items too.
