The Shoe Snob Market is gaining traction. Increasingly more individuals are getting their footwear on there and we actually have a few manufacturers collaborating, one in all them being Carlos Santos with a complete vary of footwear. JM Legazel additionally has just a few fascinating one-off’s on there too.
Some suggestions that I’ve although is for the sellers and potential sellers. I see a number of folks including footwear however not a ton of gross sales and the reason is that individuals are merely itemizing their used footwear at too excessive of a value. Footwear are like automobiles. The second they depart the store, they robotically lose about 40% of their worth. Subsequently even if you’re promoting model new footwear on right here, however you aren’t the precise model of the footwear, folks gained’t worth buying from you as they might the precise model or retail store that sells the footwear. That is merely our psychology as people.
Subsequently, what I like to recommend to all of you that want to promote your footwear is to decrease your costs. You should settle for that you’ll nearly by no means get what you actually need when promoting a used pair of footwear. For a used shoe (and naturally, this has many variables to it that have an effect on value), you need to be trying to get 1/four or 1/three of the retail value if worn greater than three instances. Worn as soon as evenly can in all probability get you 50% of retail. After all, the extra you additions you will have i.e. shoe timber, toe faucets and so on, the extra seemingly you’re going to get a better value in your footwear. And the higher you current them in photographs can be one thing that may make them extra fascinating to a possible purchaser.
Everybody has footwear that they don’t need. Polish them up, take footage within the daylight (i.e. outdoors) and get them listed for an affordable value on The Shoe Snob Market. And you’ll promote them!!
To all current sellers, get on the positioning and decrease your costs if they’re trying excessive. Belief me. It is going to assist.
****For Costs proven in these footage, that is the value if you’re primarily based in NYC as this was exhibiting me the value as if I used to be the customer (which included delivery and NYC taxation). Costs alter primarily based in your location and might both be larger or decrease relying on delivery/tax costs****
