Bags, Watches & Accessories Now Available For Selling Globally

All the hottest bags, accessories, and watches are now available for selling around the world.  Previously only available to sellers in the US, Canada, and select European countries, now sellers located in over 120 countries can now get in on the action.

Reduced Seller Shipping Rates For Select Countries

Last month, we launched lower shipping fees for sellers in select countries around the world.  Sellers in the UK, Canada, and Netherlands can now take advantage of free shipping, and sellers in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Taiwan, China, and Macao can enjoy significantly reduced shipping rates.

Luxury Fees = Gone For Good

In case you missed it, we turned off luxury fees on ALL products sold from locations outside the US. That means that the 15% luxury import duty fee applied to items sold over $800 USD is now a thing of the past. Not only will eliminating this fee enable higher payouts for our international sellers, it will also help to better match more sellers with more buyers in the same country/region, creating quicker payouts and faster delivery times.

More Opportunities to Profit

We’re constantly adding new products and brands that have limited supply, high demand, and the potential to resell for a profit. Check out recent category additions below, and keep your eyes peeled for more new items that will be made available to sell throughout the year.
