Who To Sell My Louis Vuitton To?
Your next questions after you decide to sell your Louis Vuitton handbags should be focused on knowing exactly what you have and what to price them for. Is your Louis Vuitton a classic that retains value very well or is it an unpopular style that warrants a much lower resale value than the original purchase price? Some bags are very rare and so desirable that they can actually appreciate in value over time. One of the biggest mistakes a seller can make is undervaluing their handbag, or selling it somewhere with no guarantee of price. We recommend searching for the exact style of your Louis Vuitton on trusted websites such as Her Authentic, Rebag and Fashionphile to see how much similar condition bags are listed for. All 3 of these companies will also give you a quote to buy your Louis Vuitton outright.
Here at Her Authentic, we wanted to make it as simple as possible to sell your Louis Vuitton and get the most cash for your handbag. All you need to do is fill out our Sell To Us Form and provide us with the necessary information about your bag. It really is that simple. All we need from you is your name and contact information, then the basics about your bag – the designer, the item’s style name, and some details about the condition of it, such as scratches or scuffs in the leather. After that, quickly snap a few well-lit shots of your handbag to make sure that it is authentic. We like to make sure you have an effortless experience every time, so we almost always pay you the same day your handbag arrives with us.
Can I Get More Selling My Louis Vuitton on Auction Sites?
Trying to sell a handbag yourself using auction sites such as eBay or Depop can be good for a quick sale but can also be a big pain in the butt. What’s more, eBay takes up to 15% of the entire sale price, whilst also allowing buyers up to 6 months to return the bag! Who knows what condition you might get that handbag back after someone has used it for half a year. There’s also no guarantee of authenticity on auction sites. This often times makes buyers more weary to pay what your handbag is actually worth and you will get a lot of lowballers.
