    Default thinking of selling some of my designer bags... question

    ive noticed that on some auction sites, aside from putting MPRS, some sellers are also putting that they are members of a certain handbag forum...

    is this okay to do? I am considering selling a bunch of my designer purses (to make way for a slightly pricier purchase soon) and since i do not really sell anything, i have very few "tokens" on auction sites. Is it okay to put i am a member of the bag forum? and encourage potential buyers to come here and have my items authenticaterd?


    TIA!! :)

    I don't think there would be any problem for you to state that you belong to a particular forum. You are welcome to direct bidders to get the items authenticated either here or any other forum that you trust. Be aware though that bidders may have their own favourite forum that they would prefer to use.
    Also be prepared to take tons of clear close ups for that purpose. I'm sure you don't mind as the more bags you sell, the more funds you have for your wishlist bag right??!
    Good luck with your sales!

    i don't see why it would be a problem to mention being a member.

    but, some sites (ebay, for sure) do not let you post links or use the web addy, as in: thebagforum.com -- you are not supposed to use the .com part. i see people do it all the time, but all you need is one jerk to report you and they will pull the listing.
    hmmmm... maybe something RED next

    Good info from chickie, I second it.

    It is harder to sell on ebay when you don't have a lot of sales racked up. Anything you can do to counteract that will help. I think you're on the right track.

    I also recommend requiring shipping insurance and accepting PayPal only.

    It seems like a good idea especially if you've talked about your bag before. It also shows you know about bags.

    I always put TBF member on my listings. I want people to know that I'm part of a place that is all about fashion, bags, etc. It shows that you would lever buy/own/sell a replica if you are an active member of that place, and it's also a good reference for people if they want to come here and have it authenticated.
