To price bags, we use recent sales of comparable items. We consider our own record of sales as well as online sales or auctions from other sellers. We also consider the retail value of the bag. Other factors such as condition, rarity, and current trends are considered.
There is no simple answer for this as some items find a buyer within hours of being listed, and others may take much longer. The average bag will sell within 2 weeks to 2 months from the time it is listed for sale.
Most consignment items will sell before the 90-day consignment term ends. However, if items remain unsold, we will contact you to discuss either keeping it available for sale at a reduced price or having it returned. If the consignor has required a specific price that has kept the bag from selling, a $60 fee is required before returning the item(s) at the end of the consignment term. If Fashionphile determined the price without input from the consignor, no fees will be charged to return items at the end of the 90-day term. Please bear in mind that of the thousands of bags we've had on consignment, only a few bags have ever been returned due to inability to sell.
Maybe. If your item has not been sold after being available for 70 days, it will be placed on a 7-day eBay auction. The minimum eBay reserve price will be 50% of the price that Fashionphile first established as the website/showroom price.
You may ship items to Fashionphile using any shipping method you prefer (USPS, UPS, FedEx, DHL). We request that you use signature confirmation with whichever carrier you choose. You may also drop items off directly at our Beverly Hills showroom.
Seller attests to the authenticity of all agreed upon items, and has not knowingly requested the resale of counterfeit goods. Items deemed to be counterfeits will either be returned to Consignor for a $25 authentication and shipping fee, or discarded.
Fashionphile offers to buy your bag/item as soon as it arrives at Fashionphile and the authenticity is certified.
Offers are typically made only on select Louis Vuitton and Chanel bags. Even among these brands, not all bags will receive offers. Whether or not an offer is made depends on many factors including popularity, budget, season, condition of the bag, etc. Offers will not be made for shoes, sunglasses, or costume jewelry of any brand.
Payments are made by either check (sent by US Mail), Paypal, or by applying the funds to a Fashionphile purchase.
Direct Buy payments are made after the bag had been received by Fashionphile and our authenticator has certified the bag's authenticity. The authentication may take several days, depending on the brand. It is our goal to send the payment as soon as possible.
After appraising the bag's value in the secondary market, Fashionphile will typically offer a buyout price between 50% and 65% of that resale value. The buyout price is not based on the original retail price of the bag.
Bags purchased from Fashionphile may be sold back to Fashionphile for 70% of the purchase price, within 90 days of the purchase.

These auctions can often result in lower prices than originally marked on the website.
Each item's price is determined by comparing recent sales of that particular style of bag or accessory. We do extensive research to find as many sales as possible of the same or very close to the same style bag in order to come up with the most accurate "market value" possible.
Although most items on Fashionphile.com are marked at between 80% and 60% of their original retail price, some items may actually be priced higher than the original retail price. There are 3 possible reasons for an item to be priced above retail:
1) Old Price Tags - Some bags we sell still have the original tag, but often, the bag is several years old and the price tag may reflect the price for that item a number of years ago which will typically be lower than the item's current retail price.
2) Vintage & Rage - Vintage items or limited edition special order items may exceed comparable current retail prices because of their rarity.
3) Sold-Out - When a particular item sells out completely at it's company's boutiques or website, its value might increase beyond its original retail price due to its scarcity.

These fees exists because we pay the consigner immediately after an item is put on layaway with the assumption that a layaway will be paid in full.

We do love our International Buyers! Unfortunately, we can not lie on customs forms. We mark all of our customs forms as used items (not stating the brand), valued at the amount that you paid for it (minus shipping).
We are glad to help you save money by combining shipping for multiple items, and will wait to ship an item to see if you've won another auction. Just send a quick email and ask us to hold it for you.
We ship almost everywhere in the world. However, some countries have customs policies that have made shipping luxury branded items very difficult. For this reason, we may not be able to ship items to France, Germany, Spain, Italy, or South America.
The buyer of the item is responsible for any customs duties or taxes that are applied by his/her country.
