Our friends at FASHIONPHILE have launched a new service I’m really excited to share with you.
Many of you are familiar with FASHIONPHILE, the online fashion resale website to buy and sell luxury designer pre-owned handbags. Fashionphile’s system for selling (aka rehoming) your bags always is simple and user friendly. As I continuously curate my collection, FASHIONPHILE’s online quote system effectively prices my item and helps me decide whether to sell.
Now, however, the folks at FASHIONPHILE have taken it up a notch with a new virtual appointment service.This service allows you to schedule a live video-conference appointment with one of FASHIONPHILE’s trained buyers.
Having just used it myself let me explain a little more. We now can share in real time (just like a zoom call we’ve all grown accustomed to during the pandemic) and discuss the potential bag that we want to get a quote for with the intention to sell. Your bag may have special features, or might be a limited edition, or color. Consider it a grown up show and tell opportunity.
Moreover, with the interactive feedback we can better understand the criteria that go into calculating the price offered to us for the handbag in consideration. For example, sometimes we anticipate the buyout price to be higher than what is offered, which leads to disappointment or frustration. Being able to talk it through with an expert mitigates this completely and creates a more personal experience.
To better demonstrate the new system I decided to give it a try myself. I had a video call scheduled with Gigi and selected a range of bags from my collection to put to the test.
