In California, they don't allow the sale of exotic skin items, including bags. Stricter enforcement supp went into effect in 2020. FP's HQ is in Carlsbad (Southern California). Maybe that's why?
Only python. Everything else can be sold here - croc, alligator, ostrich, elaphe, you name it.

Appalled is a understatement! Sent pictures of a bag I wanted to sell to fashionphile over a week ago and they just got back to me... their quote was $6k for my Birkin! Which I paid over $10k for last July. My birkin is from 2007 however is in very very good condition and it is a rested color that I’ve seen a lot of draw for the last few weeks. I was also including a brand new rodeo with the bag. Honestly I was just hoping to get $12k since the same bag is now on far fetch for a whooping $15k and the bag on far fetch is in way worse condition! Honestly this just made me never want to do business with Fashionphile.

Do not sell it. You can have boutique send it back to Paris to repaint if needed to freshen up the bag.
It’s better to enjoy it. You can not even buy Chanel small on $6k.

Thank you for the response, if need be can Paris match the exact rested color? I definitely don’t use the bag as much because I am scared of wear and tear and Paris not being able to match the exact color for repairs.

They can match it. If I was in your place I would apt and take to your local Hermès store. Tell them you need it to be restored in the same color, etc.
I would use this time that we are mainly at home to get it fixed.
good luck

I honestly don't think a quote of 6k is that bad from FP for a birkin from 2007 that isn't pristine, never used, with stickers still on, etc. Fashionphile sells Birkins, Kellys, etc on the low side compared to other resellers/consignment/preloved stores (unless it's a brand new bag from this year or last year, an HSS, or an exotic).

If you bought it for 10k last July, they will probably list it for around the same amount, since it is an "older" bag and not brand new with stickers still on it. 6k is 60% of 10k if they list it for that, which is in range with what I expect from fashionphile and have experienced myself.

Farfetch is on the opposite end of FP in terms of prices. They price their preloved Chanel and Hermes bags very high, so that probably explains $15k for the same bag on Farfetch. If you bought it last year for $10k, it doesn't really make sense that the value would've increased 50% in a year.

But that's just my opinion, you of course do not have to accept the quote if you are not comfortable or happy with it! You will most likely be able to get a lot more for your bag if you sell it independently, instead of going through a place like FP where they get a large percentage of the sale.

JMO, I would not sell, you are taking a huge loss (40%), unless you need the money for something.

I’ve never sold anything online before...decided to try Fashionphile. Not sure if I got particularly unlucky or my items are super undesirable but the quotes were very unexciting to say the least.
I was offered $500 for a jersey fabric Reissue 224 (in excellent condition)...possibly because I misplaced the authenticity card but I saw another one listed on the website with a missing card for $3000+. And $400 for a mini Miss Dior bag which has been discontinued but I see other versions of the same bag listed on the site for $1200 + Mine is in very good condition with the full set.
Not so great first experience overall

Dont settle for the quote. Schedule virtual appt. with them to see you can get a better price quote or wait until the current one expired and submit the new one.

I got a quote of $6300 for a full set (box, card, tag, dustbag, etc), brand new, iridescent pink calfskin from 21S.
With 10% for store credit or a NM gift card, they offered $6930. I'm not planning to sell but I was curious what they would offer.

I also got a quote of $1500 for a small velvet hot pink boy bag in very good to excellent condition from 2014. Yoogis offered me $1100 for the same bag. I find both of those quotes to be shockingly low....

Has anyone used multiple Neiman Marcus giftcards (from fashionfile Chanel item sale) to buy new Chanel item?
Is there limit how many NM gift card you can use at NM Chanel?
Not at Chanel, but when I used NM GC to buy VCA at NM, I was told they can only use a total of 11 cards(including credit card), so 10 GC + your CC to cover whatever left over amount from the GC.
