Click either the "Get Started Now" button or "SUBMIT" at the bottom of the page.
How do I upload images of the items I want to sell?
Once you have told us about your item, you will be asked to choose an image from your phone.
How do you determine if my item is authentic or not?
Your item will be reviewed by our in-house authentication experts who draw on extensive experience and familiarity of luxury goods to review the quality of materials, stitching, hardware, shape, color, serial numbers, holograms, dust bag, receipt, manufacturer's registration and authentication cards, original price tag - to name the top inspection points.
By submitting an item to Bag Borrow or Steal for Consignment or Direct Buy, you are representing that the item is authentic. If Bag Borrow or Steal determines in its sole discretion, that an item you submit for Consignment or Direct Buy is counterfeit or not authentic, Bag Borrow or Steal will return the item to you and you authorize Bag Borrow or Steal to charge you a $50 Authentication Fee.
If you resubmit the item or the item is returned to Bag Borrow or Steal for any reason, you authorize Bag Borrow or Steal to charge you an additional $50 Authentication Fee.
How do you determine the amount of your offer?
Your item will be reviewed by our in-house authentication experts, and our offer will be based on a number of factors: the age and condition of your item, rarity, retail price, sales of comparable items, current fashion trends, and the inclusion of original materials, such as dust bag, receipt, manufacturer's registration and authentication cards, original price tag, etc.
Do you negotiate?
Generally, no. However, if potential sellers are able to provide additional information or original materials (like dust bag, receipt, manufacturer's registration and authentication cards, original price tag, etc), we may reevaluate a submission.
How will I get paid?
After your item is authenticated and accepted, we will send you a check via US Mail or issue a store credit to your Bag Borrow or Steal account, if you chose that form of payment. A store credit can be used at BagBorroworSteal.com and automatically applies to your next transaction - you don't have to do anything. And it never expires!
How will I know when I've been paid?
If we accept your item, you will receive an e-mail informing you that we are buying your item. It will confirm that either a check is in the mail or a credit has been issued to your Bag Borrow or Steal account, depending on the form of payment you've chosen. You can also check the status of each submission in the "Selling History" through your online account.
What if I want to end my consignment term before the 120 day expiration?
Bag Borrow or Steal will return the item to you and you authorize Bag Borrow or Steal to charge you a $50 Early Cancellation & Processing Fee.
What if you lose my item?
We supply a pre-paid shipping label from UPS for your convenience. If your item is lost in transit AFTER the package has been scanned by UPS, we will honor the price you accepted and send you a check for that amount.
We will also take responsibility for the item while it's in our possession. Once your item reaches our warehouse it is safe, and we have checks and balances in place to keep track of it. If we have to return the item to you and it's lost, we will file a tracer investigation with UPS. If they approve the claim, we will honor the price you accepted and send you a check for that amount.
Do you buy shoes and/or clothes?
In addition to accepting submissions for handbags, jewelry, sunglasses and watches, we have recently started accepting unworn women's shoes in sizes 6-10.5, as well as scarves and belts.
