One common online venue for selling used designer handbags is eBay. But in recent years this has become more difficult due to the amount of people on eBay selling fake designer merchandise. eBay now reserves the right to demand that you show a receipt for selling an "authentic" designer handbag, and shoppers have become more wary of buying luxury handbags on eBay, even when there's a receipt (since such receipts can be forged). Some online sellers have chosen to make use of Craigslist instead of eBay, however the same types of issues exist involving the risk of counterfeit merchandise, perhaps much more so, since Craigslist does not conduct oversight on its sellers the way eBay does.
If you do decide to sell your used designer handbag on eBay be sure to include several good quality photos from the bag (inside and outside), along with a thorough and well written description, along with a scan from the receipt (should you still have it). When shipping the handbag, pay the small extra fee for USPS's "delivery confirmation" service, which means you don't end up in a situation where a buyer says they never received their handbag.
Another option for selling a used handbag is to visit a "bricks and mortar" buyer of pre-owned handbags. Some well-known gold and jewelry buyers for example San Diego Jewelry Buyers (SDJB) are now buying luxury handbags from select high-brand designers. So, you may want to check with a well-establish fine jewelry buyer in your area to determine when they are purchasing luxury handbags too. Even if they haven't purchased handbags previously, they might decide that it?s a good idea to begin buying luxury handbags along with gold jewelry and diamonds.
The thing to keep in your mind when selling your used handbag to some second-hand buyer is that you will not be receiving a price that's equivalent to the retail price. The buying offer is going to be related to the value of the designer handbag around the resale market, and that price varies, based on consumer demand for the brand and the condition of your handbag.
There are, obviously, always pawnshops too. But you will likely get the least quantity of cash for any used designer handbag from a pawnshop, since they aren't in the usual business of purchasing such items and don't have an established network of channels through which they are able to re-sell your handbag. A pawnshop could be best only when you'll need a small amount of quick cash for a collateral loan and also you intend to buy back the handbag in a few weeks or couple months.
