Marcelle Parish, head of fashion for eBay Marketplaces, and fashion blogger Garance Dore celebrate the expansion of eBay Valet into apparel at The New York Edition
Online marketplace eBay announced Thursday that eBay Valet, a professional selling service, will accept high end clothing, in addition to shoes, handbags, electronics and other popular household items.
eBay Valet will include top designer fashion labels offering more options for people who want to sell their new or like new apparel on the online marketplace.
eBay Valet does all the work for consumers; from estimating the price, to taking professional pictures, to the quick and safe shipment of items to buyers, and everything in between.
As such an easy way to make money on eBay, consumers may find themselves frequently turning to their closets in search of something to sell with eBay Valet, says the company.
“Fashion is one of the top categories on eBay globally; in fact, a dress sells every second and a pair of shoes sells every two seconds,” said Marcelle Parrish, head of fashion at eBay Marketplaces. “The expansion of eBay Valet in the fashion category delivers access to experts who will showcase clothing in the best possible light, in front of one of the largest online shopping audiences.”
eBay also partnered with fashion blogger Garance Doré to debut the expansion of eBay Valet – providing fashion lovers everywhere tips and tricks on what to sell and how to sell.
To sell through eBay Valet, follow three steps:
1. Visit ebay.com/valet and request a free, prepaid shipping label.
2. Place the items in any box.
3. Using the free prepaid shipping label, send the box to a valet.
Once the items have been sent to a valet, customers will receive regular updates via email, during the next 3-4 weeks, when their items are received, listed and sold.
Customers then receive up to 80 percent of what their items sell for, deposited into their PayPal account. Any unsold items are returned to the customer for free.
