New Year, new luxury resale experience

Jan 24, 2023

With 2023 well underway, now is the time to step back and evaluate our closets. If you’re particularly savvy, you might even do a little planning ahead for upcoming seasons. That means you should start looking to resell one of your preloved handbags or find that new (to you!) bag you’ve had your eye on for some time.

A new year also gives us the opportunity to consider new ways to sell and find designer handbags, and ensure our bags are real with an expert handbag authentication service. Why not make it easier than ever to take advantage of the entire luxury resale market?

Whether you’re looking to Sell, Find, or Authenticate this year, we’ve got you covered with each of our expert luxury resale services, because this is what OpenLuxury is all about.

Sell

Sell

Coming soon in 2023, our flagship service is perfect for finding the best place to sell your designer handbag and get the best quote for the highest amount possible. This first-of-its-kind service, Sell, helps you save time, effort and money when looking to sell your luxury handbags on the luxury resale market.

How it works

We can fetch multiple quotes for you as long as your item was made by one of the designers on our brand list. These are the designers and luxury brands that our buying partners will accept for resale. Just follow along with the form to submit the requested information and photos to us and we can get the process started!

Once submitted, we’ll review your photos and connect with our partners. Our partners are trusted and reputable private dealers, auction houses, and resale companies that are looking to provide quotes and purchase your items.

There are many different types of resale companies and ways to sell designer handbags, whether it’s on consignment, at auction, or outright through private sale. We make your options easy to understand, and can answer any questions you may have along the way. It’s like having a knowledgeable agent on call to guide you through your options!

Once we hear back from our partners (our standard response time is 3 business days), we’ll compile the quotes in an easy to understand format and send them over to you for selection. When you have the quotes in front of you, you’ll know the best option for selling your luxury handbags and accessories and be clear on exactly what it will entail.

The price of transparency

Sell is the most efficient way to ensure you’re getting the best deal possible for your luxury handbags. We’ve all been there, settling for a lower price because it happened to be the only offer on the table.

For just $50, you can ensure you get 3 or more quotes from resale companies large and small without having to move a muscle.

Coming soon in 2023

Sell is currently under construction and will be officially released later this year. Sign up for our newsletter (enter your email in the box in our website footer) to stay in-the-loop about the launch of Sell and much, much more!

You can also follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn to keep up to date on all things Sell and OpenLuxury.

Find

Find

Have you ever been looking for a designer handbag, but you can’t seem to find the right style, at the right price, and in the right condition? Find is the service that solves this problem, but not just for those who can afford a bag concierge service or personal shopper.

Available now, Find aims to make searching for your next bag easy and safe.

How it works

You could be looking for something as simple as Louis Vuitton Neverfulls, as trendy as the Dior Saddle bag, or even rare designer handbags that you can’t just walk into a store and buy; it doesn’t matter!

All you have to do is fill out our form, and let us know a little bit more about what you are looking for in the bag of your dreams. Once we receive your information, we’ll start searching our network of vetted resellers and resale companies to find options based on your criteria.

Once we find them, we’ll deliver the options to you on a silver platter (digitally), and answer any questions you might have. Personal shopping for the resale market!

The price of accessibility

Our goal with our Find service is to democratize luxury concierge services. For just $50, we can source any bag you could dream up within 3 business days! In the event that we are unable to source for you, we’ll issue a full refund of our fee.

That’s it! We’ll connect you with the item or listing, and you’ve bagged your bag!

Bulk sourcing and more

With Find, we also offer bulk sourcing options if you need to purchase luxury bags at higher volumes. We’ve worked with all kinds of resale company structures and buying needs in the past and can tailor our service offering to you.

Contact us to find designer handbags, and learn more about bulk sourcing for you or your business.

Authenticate

Authenticate

Authenticity is at the center of the luxury resale industry. Over a decade of luxury authentication service experience at large resale companies and exclusive auction houses will teach that to you.

The luxury resale community needs online authentication services they can rely on (and trust) to deliver a high standard of excellence and expertise. Whether you’re buying, selling, collecting or trading, Authenticate can be of service to you!

How it works

It’s quick and easy to submit your designer bags and accessories for luxury authentication. To get started, fill out our form to submit the information and images required for our experts to authenticate your luxury bag.

Our standard response time is 24 hours so you’ll hear back from us within a day, and we have expedited response times for an additional fee if you need a quicker answer.

When you are filling out your order, you’ll see some additional services we offer as well as a straightforward luxury authentication.

If you need proof that your item is a genuine (or counterfeit) designer bag, add on a certificate of authenticity or written statement of inauthenticity. Certificates of authenticity boost confidence in your items, and give you piece of mind that you have the real thing.

Need to know what your item even is? We can issue an ID Report with details such as the official brand, model name, size, material(s), age (exact or approximate), and color name(s).

Want to find out how much your luxury handbag is worth? Add on a Valuation, and receive an approximate resale value for your “investment”.

Whatever your needs, our Authenticate service offers the highest standard in online authentication services. You no longer need to search around for where to authenticate bags, you have a handbag authentication service right in the palm of your hand!

The price of authenticity

A Standard Authentication from OpenLuxury is $30 for a 24 hour response time. To expedite this to half the time, select the +$15 “12 hour authenticity turnaround” add-on option at checkout.

We never upcharge for Hermès authentication services! No matter if it’s made of leather, lizard, ostrich, or crocodile, all of our authentications start at just $30. We take our mission to make luxury handbag resale transparent, easy, and safe seriously.

For a certificate of authenticity or written statement of inauthenticity, select the +$10 add-on “Documentation” option and we will have an official, digital (with QR code verification) OpenLuxury certificate of authenticity sent to your email address.

To get an ID Report and find out all about your luxury bags, it’s just an additional +$10 fee.

And to get a Valuation, just add on that option at checkout for the +$10 fee.

Once you’ve selected your services, response time, and add-ons, we’ll get right to work on authenticating your designer bags.

We work with everyone

Have a larger collection or revolving inventory of luxury handbags and designer accessories? We work with everyone, from small resellers to large resale companies!

We can tailor a specific package to fit your businesses’ financial and operational needs, like 1 hour response times and bulk discounts. Contact us today to find out more about custom pricing plans and how it works.

Rethink how you do luxury resale

Let’s leave 2022’s mistakes in the rearview mirror and use us for your luxury resale needs. We’ve all been there, trying to navigate online luxury resale stores and brick-and-mortar consignment shops looking to buy or sell our authentic luxury handbags and accessories, only to be stuck with a fake or ripped off on condition or price.
