Snappy Auctions - will sell your stuff on eBay

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently discovered SnappyAuctions, a service that sells your stuff on eBay.  I used them to sell some Oxxford suits and Alden shoes and the moved them quickly.  They are in most major cities (or will be soon) and are also at www.snappyauctions.com.

I looked into a couple of these and was amazed at the high fees they charge. Sure, they have to take pictures and write descriptions, but still -- 30% off the top seemed to be the norm from what I saw.

30% is not enough - a brick and mortar consignment store would charge you 50% for a small fraction of the work, and they don't have to pay 10-15% off the top to ebay/paypal. At 30% I think it is a losing proposition for the consignment company...

Although I have no experience with snappyauctions in particular, I must say I like ebay auction dropoff companies -- as a buyer. Many, indeed, most, don't know how to sell clothing, much less high-end clothing. Misspelled brand names, insufficient pictures, esoteric measurements or no measurements at all, etc. It's as if the amateurs have farmed out their amateurness to would-be professionals.

Right about those eBay consignment places that don't know clothes-- got a 1 year old Zegna navy Su Misura with functional sleeve buttons-- maybe worn twice-- for a little over $200... From a buyer's point of view... love 'em. Ned Soltz

One of those companies listed about 10 Paul Stuart used suits about 4 months ago -- all priced at something like $75 each. The descriptions and pictures were so awful that I don't think a single one was sold, must less saw any bidding action. They were relisted once, with the same lack of interest.

Alright, this thread is just begging for blatant self promotion, sorry If you want to sell high-end clothing, best to post it here on the forum, or if you want it on ebay then go through a professional, eg. me....

A Harris - if you truly wanted to self-promote, you should have said "i.e.", not "e.g."
