Have you been tightening your purse strings lately? You’re not alone.

With COVID-19 squeezing an already shrinking job market, it helps to get creative and find new ways to supplement income.

Designer bags, shoes and accessories have continued to hold their value exceptionally well, even in the current economic climate. As opposed to cheap and low quality ‘fast fashion’ destined for the landfill, luxury pieces are sought after as a symbol of status and are known for their high-quality craftsmanship and durability.

This constant demand means that selling designer items online is a great way to get a quick cash windfall.

With climate change an ever-increasing threat and a more environmentally friendly society turning to more sustainable and mindful shopping choices, it is no wonder that the Australian resale market has been booming, even more so with the impact of coronavirus.

People staying at home taking the opportunity to clean out their closets have turned to online marketplaces as a way to convert what they no longer want or need into cash. On the other side of the coin, those looking to buy are opting to buy pre-owned over new, seeing it as better value. If there was a time to enter the resale market, that time is now.

Those brave enough may try to go it alone on traditional marketplaces like eBay and Gumtree, or peer-to-peer sites like Facebook buy and sell groups, but the stakes are high. The luxury resale market in particular is rife with non-committal tire-kickers, authenticity concerns, and ugly chargeback disputes.

For those wanting to avoid the inevitable headaches, Luxe.It.Fwd, Australia’s most trusted online reseller of authentic pre-owned luxury, provides a frictionless selling experience from obtaining a simple online quote, free courier pickup and otherwise handling the entire selling process from start to finish.

Sellers are guaranteed a great return of 70% when consigning their items valued at under $4,000, and 80% for items greater or equal to that. For those needing to see cash quickly, there is also an option for direct sell, where sellers receive 50% straight to their bank account after authentication.

Fill out their quick and easy online form and Luxe.It.Fwd’s friendly team will email you back with a quote. If you’re happy to proceed, simply send your bag to them for free using their pre-paid post label, or for those stuck at home, free home pick up is available – now that’s convenient!

After Luxe.It.Fwd receives your item, it goes through the process of being professionally cleaned, photographed, and authenticated by external professional authenticators.  Once authenticated your item is listed on Luxe.It.Fwd’s website and broadcast to their extensive network of luxe-lovers, where it will have no shortage of attention.

Named by the Australian Financial Review as one of Australia’s fastest-growing new companies in their 2020 Fast Starters List, Luxe.It.Fwd has gained a reputation for quality and authenticity, amassing 40k average monthly visitors, and a combined social presence of over 10k followers. Many of their bags sell in a matter of minutes, which certainly beats days, weeks, or even months of frustrating back-and-forth communication on traditional marketplaces.

Keen to ‘luxe it forward’? Here are few points to bear in mind before you start ransacking your closet for designer treasures. With years of experience under their (designer) belts, the ladies at Luxe.It.Fwd have found that the most in demand brands are the designer trifecta of Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci. So, if you have pieces from these brands lying neglected in your closet, you may be in luck!

Most importantly, keep in mind that the original price you paid for an item doesn’t necessarily translate to its price in the resale market.  The level of demand determines resale pricing. For example, black or neutral coloured styles are more likely to fetch a higher price than brighter hues, or limited-edition prints (unless they are very rare) as they are more sought after for their versatility.

Ready to dip your toe into the luxury resale market? Simply head over to Luxe.It.Fwd’s site and fill out an online quote form to be connected to their friendly team. Join the revolution against ‘fast fashion’ and give your designer pieces new life, allowing a new owner to enjoy them rather than letting them sit in the back of your closet collecting dust.
