How To SELL in iNVISeDGE
Our results can be surprising!
We were recently consigned an item from a seller (who sells a lot of these types of items online). She had struggled to find a buyer for months. In the end she offered the piece to iNVISeDGE for $500. I refused it and talked her into selling her item under consignment in iNVISeDGE. Her item sold for $1840 from invisedge.com.au in just 2 days.
We charged this seller an 18.5% commission fee so she ended up getting about $1500 in the hand for her piece in just 2 days. This is after she had listed her item on various websites including ebay & had dropped the price to something pitiful. The difference between trying to sell your item yourself and using the experience & customer following of iNVISeDGE can be the difference of $1000 for just one item!
You will be asking yourself, how? … why? Ebay in particular is so cluttered with cheap mass-produced crap from China (2nd-hand and new stuff being sold directly from China) that it has become almost impossible for buyers to find anything of any real value on ebay anymore. Ebay also no longer allows potential trading partners to exchange contact numbers which means viewings and discussions about special items prior to sale are virtually impossible- if you want something special, ebay has become too hard for most buyers. Gumtree is mainly choked with items people are trying to get rid of- items they will chuck out if someone doesn’t come in a matter of week (or day) to take it away and give them 50 bucks for it. Gumtree was set up mainly for this and it’s very effective for clearing out your clutter quickly. But if you’ve got something of real value, it’s almost impossible to find anyone on Gumtree who will give you a fair price it. The vast majority of people on Gumtree expect to get something for nothing- sellers of special items find themselves banging their head against a wall! (I’ve been there myself!)
The iNVISeDGE difference
iNVISeDGE sales COMMISSION FEES
18.5% for ALL PRIVATE SELLERS who EMAIL us good clear photos of their item from every angle from the onset. (Send your photos to- email@example.com). If you’re using a camera phone set it to the highest pixel quality. All photos MUST be in LANDSCAPE ORIENTATION (Google, “landscape photo orientation”). The quality of your photos often determines the value we assign to your item and good quality photos will increase the likelihood we’ll choose your item for iNVISeDGE. A plain background with good natural lighting will give you the best result. (Open all the blinds during the day but don’t put your item in direct sun. Taking your photos in front of a garage door is also a great place. If you have to move your item or things out of the way this will often get a better result for you.) If you have an item in the same design as something we’ve sold before we will use iNVISeDGE photos as “gallery photos” to draw people into your ad but we still must be able to CLEARLY see what you have.
10% – 18.5% for PRIVATE SELLERS who have items worth more than $4000. This fee is negotiable depending on your item and what you need. If you have an item worth $6000 or more Michael will probably want to photograph your item himself and or at least see it personally to give it the best chance of getting what it’s worth (if it’s something we’ve never sold before). The photography fee will be negotiated depending on what your item is, where it’s located and how easy it will be to set-up for professional photos.
11% incl GST for all SHOP / SMALL BUSINESS owners. When you first start selling through iNVISeDGE our commission fee is 11% (10% plus 1% for GST) if the item doesn’t require Michael to personally experience the item and/or photograph it. If you’d like to present several special items in iNVISeDGE Michael can sometimes travel to work with multiple items and the commission fee would still be 11% or around 11%.
