We offer consignment services for clients who don’t have the time to sell their own items. The type and size of your items determine the marketplaces we use. They include, Ebay, Craigslist, Etsy, Facebook and many others.
Furniture as it is difficult to ship (we can advertise these locally)
Used electronics or items that cannot be verified to work properly
Items that are broken, stained, dented or not in tip top shape
WILL YOU ACCEPT ITEMS VALUED UNDER $100?
We prefer items valued over $100 to make it worthwhile for all of us. Some items can be grouped together into one lot to increase the value.
HOW DO I GET MY ITEMS TO YOU?
We can schedule a time to meet at your location to view your items and determine which ones would be good candidates to sell on Ebay. Or, if you prefer to ship your items to us we can provide an address and let you know when they arrive.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR MY ITEMS TO BE LISTED?
The process of creating an inventory of your items, photographing them and listing them can take up to two to four weeks. Depending on our schedule, it could be sooner or later but we will keep you informed.
HOW LONG WILL YOU LIST MY ITEM?
Most items will be listed for one year, unless other terms are discussed. This allows seasonal, holiday and infrequent buyers to find your item. We will contact you via email after one year of being listed if we are unable to sell your items. We encourage you to pick them up at our location or if you do not want them returned we can donate them to charity. Any returned shipping fees are at your cost.
HOW WILL MY ITEMS BY LISTED?
With over eight years of experience of turning client’s collectibles into cash, we implement various strategies to help your items sell:
Auction: The majority of our items begin with a 5 of 7 day auction at a price that encourages bidding and can be re-listed several times before switching to a Fixed Price format.
Fixed Price/Buy It Now: This strategy allows buyers to instantly purchase an item. They are usually listed for 30 days at a time and then re-listed until sold.
Make Offer: Ebay shoppers find this option an easy way to inquire if the item will be sold at a lower price. All reasonable offers received will be approved by you, the Consigner, prior to acceptance.
DO YOU CHARGE ANY UP FRONT FEES?
No, you will not be charged any up front fees.
HOW MUCH WILL I GET PAID?
For items that sell for $2,500 or less you will receive 50% of the final sales price of the items or 60% for items that sell for over $2,501.
From our commission, we pay Ebay and Paypal fees of 15% and all packaging costs. To earn our commission we inventory your items, take photos, weigh and measure them to determine appropriate packaging, write a detailed description, list and re-list the item, monitor the listing, answer any questions from buyers and carefully package and ship your items to the new buyer.
HOW DO I GET PAID?
Each month, after your items sell, we mail you a check or transfer funds to your Paypal account. We issue payments once a month, on or about the 15th of each month. Your check will reflect the completed sales from the previous month, so if you have sales in March, you will be paid in mid April. As a Top Rated Seller, we must offer buyers a 14 day return policy so after your item has been shipped, receipt has been verified and 14 days has passed, your payment will be issued the following month. Items that buyers do not pay for are re-listed after the sale is disputed with eBay.
WHY DO YOU OFFER FREE SHIPPING?
We prefer to offer free shipping on most items that we sell. The shipping fee is automatically added to the selling price. Studies have shown that buyers are more willing to purchase an item when free shipping is offered. Besides, Ebay puts Free Shipping listings higher up in the search engines which creates more sales for you!
HOW DO YOU KEEP IN TOUCH WITH ME?
When your items are listed, we will send you a link to the listings so you can monitor them on Ebay or other platform such as Etsy or Craigslist.
HOW DO I GET A $25 AMAZON GIFT CARD FOR REFERRING A FRIEND?
We love referrals! We are happy to reward those who refer us to their friends and colleagues by sending you a $25 VISA Gift when the new client signs up with us. Thank you in advance!
