I am trying to sell one of my bags but a bit nervous about selling something of value on ebay.

I recently successfully sold an LV bag on Gumtree. Had no luck on eBay.

Have you tried www.buymywardrobe.com

I've bought on there, and was very impressed

If you can't sell mulberry bags on eBay does anyone know where else I can sell?

As a lot of people will probably ask about the authenticity on purseforum, have a look at which pictures they are asking for to authenticate the bags. Then you don't have to take more pictures later.

Personally, I don't want to use ebay for selling Mulberry bags (or any other higher end bag). I've read about how ebay/paypal have allowed buyers to destroy bags and refunded the money, because the buyers reported the bags as fake. Despite not being fake... These bags were Hermes, so more expensive than Mulberry.

Yes a private sale is always more appealing. I don't think there is a for sale board here.

is there a for sale board on here? there is on another forum i use, might be a better idea to start with that. i've found it easier selling to people i 'know' from chatting to online, also no fees.

I am looking to sell three bags (2 mulberrys) and I am quite put off by it all. Too many bad news story's.

start at the minimum price you are willing to accept, end the auction in an evening, I find Mon or Tues best. Take lots of pictures, add security marks in case they try and return a different item, send fully tracked with online proof of delivery, if you offer collection only take cash.

It is free listing this weekend so I would get the listing live tonight or tomorrow night.

What bag is it, Magenta? Pm me. I could be interested! wink

Mine was on the reverse of the disc thing which has the Mulberry logo on.

where's the serial number?

EleanorFarjeon Fri 21-Jun-13 22:49:15

My one and only (to date) eBay sale was a Mulberry bag which my DH had bought me and had sat in a drawer for about 5 years (unused because he bought me another, almost identical one).

I got so many e-mails from people asking me for serial numbers and other details - I was quite naive.

In the last hour there was quite a bidding war but no problem.

ShebaQueen Fri 21-Jun-13 22:47:23

Oooh I'd be interested, depending on which model and colour!

ChocolateCremeEggBag Fri 21-Jun-13 22:09:59

I bought one on eBay (tan leather Phoebe for £200 2 years ago)

Seller took lots of pictures from all different angles, bag had marks and signs of wear - but to me that meant it was more likely to be real. It's definitely a real one though ask also checked on the designer bag forums.

I would also look at posting via a courier service like MyHermes - much cheaper than by Rotal Mail now which will also make your listin more attractive. Check out the eBay forum for more advice on postage

I'd either set a BIN or start your auction at a price you'd be ok to sell at. You pay more to list, but better than risk it going for a song.
Then be vv sure to get the listing right (no spelling mistakes and put it in the right category)
List on a Thursday for 10 days and you get two weekends for people to "find" your bag, more people browse eBay at weekends so better to maximise your chances of more people looking.

Good luck

Which mulberry is it?

suebfg Fri 21-Jun-13 20:36:04

Yes, my purchaser hinted they thought I had sold counterfeit goods too - I had bought the items 20 years ago from a designer boutique and was selling them as vintage. Thankfully they didn't open a dispute but the experience was a bit stressful - I think they got carried away in the bidding and then regretted it. Interestingly I always list my items at 99p and so far they have always achieved a good price.

suebfg Fri 21-Jun-13 20:32:53

I haven't sold a Mulberry but have sold a couple of other designer items. I'd just be wary and make sure you send recorded delivery so they cannot dispute they have received the goods.

KikeriFreedomCastle Fri 21-Jun-13 19:26:11

I've sold two, both old bags with broken/missing bits, including an ancient scotchgrain Mulberry, they sold quite well considering. I had serial numbers, dust bags and so on.

I set one with a starting price I'd have been happy to sell at, and another with a buy price (requiring immediate payment).

chartreuse Fri 21-Jun-13 18:30:22

I have sold a few. Lots of photos and list it as a Buy It Now, rather than an auction. It may take a little longer to sell, but at least you will be happy with the price.

SerBrienne Fri 21-Jun-13 18:27:24

Which model is it?

Allthingspretty Fri 21-Jun-13 18:13:02

Yes but I didnt get near to what I had paid for it.

magentastardust Fri 21-Jun-13 16:22:44

Thanks for your help.

FIFIBEBE Fri 21-Jun-13 16:21:10

I have. 3 in fact. I listed everything,every flaw, till receipt, took many photos, link to the purse forum etc etc. Posted recorded delivery - so basically did everything possible to appear genuine (which they were). No problem getting paid and happy with the price.
