I just noticed... There are a lot of Brand New Chanels on Ebay. How ever.. The disappointing thing is, they're selling it for much more expensive price than the retail price.. For example.. If the retail is $2400, they're selling it for $2600!
I think it depends on how badly you want the bag, I dont think a $200 profit is too bad. It annoys me when they list the item for $1000 more than retail. They are either greedy or a wholesale ebay seller - full time job thing.
supply and demand. but don't worry. chances are, the bags are just going to sit there at those prices and will eventually come down. you can even try to make them an offer even if they don't have that option. I actually got a pretty good deal that way on a bag.
Yes, you have to consider eBay and PayPal fees, which can be upto 8% of the final value fees. So if a seller wanted to recoupe their cost on a bag that cost $2,400 they'd have to list it on eBay for $2,600
Holy Moly. I had NO idea how bad those fees were. I have quite a few things to list but now....., good gosh.
I assumed that the higher price was due to taxes. Should I ever sell 1 of my Chanel's, and if it was never worn, I would ask the price I paid for it plus tax. You would pay that anyway depending on where you purchased it. I would be walking away w/a $100 loss anyway. Interesting.
I'm an ebay buyer, never a seller, but I have to say that asking $2600 for a $2400 new bag isn't bad or greedy at all. It's more a break even situation after fees than a profit one, and most sellers are selling to make a profit. When a lot of people are really pushing the limits of what the market will bear, that seems pretty fair. I'd prefer all free bags all the time, but . . . .
Yeah, I just saw a new "grand shopper" on ebay for $100 more than retail ($1999). But I guess if you don't have a chanel store near you, it may be worth it. But thank goodness there are a few in So. Cal!
