Things You'll Need
- Coach handbags
Once you decide what to sell it is time to do some research on your bag. Buyers want to know the style number, year made, measurements and name of the bag. All of this information can be provide to you by Coach's customer service at 1-800-444-3611. They will ask you for the numbers from the creed of the bag. The creed is located inside the bag. An example of the creed is H0873-12362. The beginning letter is the month the bag and the first two digits are the year the bag was produced. The last five digits are the actual style number. The creed provided above means that the bag was produced in August of 2008 an it is the Bleecker Tote. Check EBay for the going rate of your bag and price accordingly.
Once you have the details of the bag it is time to take pictures. Pictures speak a thousand words when selling a Coach bag. Buyers want to view the condition of the bag including the lining. They also want to see the creed of the bag. Take pictures in good lighting, that shows the true condition of the bag. Make sure to give details of any damage. You want the buyer to be able to see the exact condition of the bag whether it is good or bad.
Write up your listing sharing all the information you gathered from Coach. Also include that you only accept cash for payment. Mailing a bag and using pay pal is not safe when selling on Craigslist. It is your word against the buyer. The last thing you want is for the buyer to dispute the sale. Not only will you have lost your money but your bag will be gone as well. If you have a Coach location near you, offering to meet at the store will provide the buyer with a sense of security. This offers a check and balance system for them to check on the authentic of your bag.
Once the bag has been listed, check your email often. Potential buyers may email you for more details or to make an offer on your bag. If your bag does not sell before the listing expires don't worry. Since listings are free on Craigslist, keep listing until the bag sells.
