From creating the perfect listing, to pricing and beyond, here are our Top Ten Tips to excel as a Professional Seller.
Describe your item in as much detail as possible. Think model name, colour, size, material, and origin (whenever possible). The more information you provide in your listing, the easier it is for interested buyers to find your item.
Take advantage of our campaigns
Every year, we run several global campaigns designed to celebrate major events with our global community. These are great opportunities to showcase your products and attract buyers.
If you want to sell your pieces quickly, make sure to sell them at the right time. Swimwear might not sell quickly in winter!
Presentation is everything
Fact : the better the photographs, the faster the sale. Take the time to photograph your items at the best angle in the best possible light, remembering to include close-ups of all details and flaws. Why not include a picture of the item as worn? This can help sellers get a better feel for how the piece hangs, its size
When describing your item, it can be tempting to omit small imperfections in a bid to sell your piece faster. Don’t fall into this trap! It’s always better to be honest about imperfections to avoid stalling the process at a later stage. All sold items are checked by our team for quality and authenticity. Any item bought from a professional seller can be returned within 14 days. Honesty really is the best policy!
It’s all about balance. We understand that you want to set a great price for your item, but you also want to make sure it sells. Check out similar items on Vestiaire before listing your piece and make a note of those that have sold and those that haven’t. This will help you choose an attractive price that will draw buyers in!
Deposit items as regularly as possible - but don't stop there! Once your item’s online, make sure you stay responsive. Answer any questions you receive from potential buyers and be open to offers should you get any. The more you engage, the higher the chance of your item being seen by the community, and the greater your chances of making a sale!
Managing your available items is as important as listing them. If you list your items yourself, remove items that are no longer available from the platform immediately to avoid cancelled sales.
Who doesn't love a good sale? Regularly marking down your inventory is a great way to increase the visibility of your products. Visibility in our catalogue is based on price: meaning the more attractive the price, the more your item will be highlighted.
