Posh Tip: How To List Luxury Handbags For Resale On Poshmark

021115_posh tip_celine

Do you have a luxury handbag that you love, but don’t wear? With thousands of items from top brands – including Balenciaga, Hermès and Celine – Poshmark is the perfect place to sell it. Plus, with our exclusive Posh Concierge and Posh Protect services, you can buy and sell luxury with confidence.

How do you get started? When selling luxury items online, it’s important for sellers to know the item is authentic. While verification practices vary by brand, we’re here to help with this handy listing photo guide for sellers.

First thing’s first: be sure that your photos are on point. Photos should be taken in a well-lit area with plenty of natural light so that your pictures are crisp and clear. We recommend avoiding the use of filters that would alter the appearance of the item for sale. Want to share more photos of your item? Consider adding a separate listing for extra photos.

Logo and Hardware

Capture a clear, straight-on photograph of the logo that is labeled on the handbag. Don’t forget the small, but important details such as the zipper and hardware. Make sure that the images are focused and bright enough to read any small inscriptions!

Serial Number, Date Code or Hologram Sticker

Buyers will feel confident in purchasing from you when you display the unique code for your bag. Most of these codes are located in secretive areas like the bottom of the bag or deep down in the interior pocket. Can’t find your code? Call up the store where you purchased your bag and they will be able to help you locate it.

Documentation and Extras

Do you still have the tags, dust bag or box for your bag? Include it in your photos and mention it in the description.

Condition

Make sure to disclose any wear and tear on your bag through photos and in the description. See our handy guide to help you know how to describe the condition of your item. Hiding flaws can jeopardize your sale on Poshmark. We recommend creating another listing to provide more detailed photos for your prospective buyers.
