Concierge Services

For some of us, we enjoy the process of selling online and for others, they may not have the time or the desire and which ever way you sway, I’ve got you covered. While I’ve already covered how to sell your items outright for fast cash, not everything you have may fit under the companies umbrella (think clothes, shoes, accessories and such) Here I’m going to share which designer re-sellers offer a Concierge or White Glove service and for those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s simple. You sign up on their website, they send you a free shipping kit with a postage paid label, you fill the box or bag and drop off at the appropriate shipping service. The re-seller photographs your items, writes up the description, answers any and all questions, ships to the buyer, deals with returns and all you have to do is sit back and get paid!

I’ve listed each designer re-seller below, in no particular orderso feel free to check them out and make the best decision for yourself. If I’ve left anyone off this list, please contact me so I can investigate and include!
