How To Sell Expensive Collectibles On E Bay?

By Sagar Jawale

Just lately, a buddy requested me to help him sell his assortment on Lladro glass figurines on e bay. These are expensive glass collectibles and I knew nothing about them. Actually,the ideas for selling expensive collectibles on e bay are the same, regardless of what is being sold.

Price- determine the lowest quantity you’ll accept for every figurine and set that cost as a reserve. Then make your opening bid absurdly low.
Taking a look at completed e bay auctions allows us to trace prices, repeatedly we study that beginning the cost where the seller hopes it’s going to end is not a clever tactic.

Devote space in your auction listing explaining how you will pack your item to ensure safe transit. This is critically important because in the back of every buyer’s mind is the dread of receiving a package that rattles. A collectibles buyer will inevitably be thinking of the hassle one will have to go through and the possible loss of purchase price if her item is broken. O needs to know that the seller has carefully considered this issue and has a solution.

For the protection of each of you, insist that the customer should pay for some insurance. Do not allow this to be an option. You definitely don’t need the liability of a damaged collectible that costs hundreds of dollars. In truth, if a customer objects to paying for insurance coverage, this might probably be a red flag. A real collector may be very eager as to add to his assortment and wants his figurine to be protected.

We can safely assume that every Internet buyer has heard stories of fraud on e bay and elsewhere on the Net. Therefore, anything you can do to prove the authenticity of your collectible is well worth your time. Is there a marking on the bottom? Do you have the original box or other container? Does it have a label? Is there a certificate of authenticity or an appraisal by a respected organization? If the answer to any of these is “yes”, then be certain to emphasize your authenticity in your auction. Taking pictures of your proof is especially effective.

Your bank can advise you on the time it will take to verify foreign funds. Be certain to let any prospective buyer know in your auction that there will be a delay if they are outside of your country. Do not let your merchandise out of your hands until you are sure! If you follow these ‘rules’, the chances of selling your expensive collectibles at the highest possible prices will be greatly increased.
