New Designer Goods Online Consignment Shop
« on: June 07, 2017, 01:11:49 AM »
Just saw a consumer orientated ad for this site on Hulu.  Got to looking at it and it's a consignment shop https://www.therealreal.com

The ad says every item is authenticated by their team of in house experts.  If you look at the site you find that they have restrictions on the goods, such as only certain designers, some designers the item can only be 5yrs old, etc.

Sellers get to keep up to 70% of the selling price.  They'll schedule a pick up or you can ship the goods to them.

General info for individual sellers at https://www.therealreal.com/consign
If you're a luxury goods vendor, the vendor page is at https://www.therealreal.com/business-sellers

I have some designer handbags that I don't use any longer...but can't to bear with getting rid of.
70% goes to seller?
Might be time for me to do some shopping around for designer goods.
Thanks for sharing.

BTW, love hulu.
All caught up on Handmaid's Tale.

Up to 70.  Dunno the when/if on getting 70% Vs. getting less. Didn't dig deeper.  Still, though, even if it's less, once you consider the fact that they do all the work of the photos, the listing, shipping, customer q/a, etc. . .  Keep in mind, though, that they set the price. 

Edit - did the digging.  They have a scale system that ranges from 55% to 70%, based on your net sales.  The more you sell, the higher the commission you get.  It looks like the first year of selling is the roughest.  https://www.therealreal.com/commission-chart

Items must be less than 10yrs old, even newer for some designers (like I mentioned in previous post about how some can only be 5yrs old).  List of designers whose goods they accept is at https://www.therealreal.com/designers

Saw on another page that for jewelry and watches you can get up to 80%, but couldn't find the details.  Did discover that their jewelry category is open to non-designer goods, as long as it's a good piece.  I'm not surprised that this non-designer piece was accepted https://www.therealreal.com/products/jewelry/rings/engagement-ring/platinum-diamond-engagement-ring-17?source=igodigital I'm a little surprised that this one was, though:  https://www.therealreal.com/products/jewelry/rings/band/ring-14k-emerald-and-diamond-stacking-bands

Handmaid's Tale - coincidentally, that's what I was watching when saw the ad  :)   That is a good show, eh?   :)

Read Margaret Atwood's book back in the 80's when it came out.
It was haunting then and haunting now.
