What are some things I should know before selling my old jewelry from overseas?
After you make the decision to sell your jewelry from overseas, you need to take some time to your homework before the final sale. When selling your jewelry from overseas you should…
Beware of fraudulent buyers
Before selling your old jewelry from overseas its extremely important to be suspicious of any fraudulent transactions that could occur. This is so you don’t sell your old jewelry and get scammed out of what could be a huge return on your investment.
Make sure there isn’t a language barrier
It’s never a good idea to sell anything to anyone if you can’t quite understand what they are saying to you. If you do, you may just open the door to a fraudulent transaction. Make sure you understand the buyer completely. If you’re having trouble don’t hesitate to bring in a mutual party to help.
Understand shipping & customs
Shipping and customs is a huge part of selling anything internationally. So when you sell your jewelry internationally, you need to be aware of who’s paying for shipping and customs. Will it be you or the buyer? Most of the time it’s the buyer, but if you aren’t careful you could be the one paying for it either upfront as a part of the final sale.
Check with the better business bureau
If you’re planning on selling your old jewelry to a jeweler from overseas you should always, always, always check it with the better business bureau. This is where you’ll read the buyers ratings, reviews, and maybe even complaints. Make sure the buyer has a good reputation and is willing to give you a fair return on your jewelry investment before selling anything internationally.
Spend some time getting to know the buyer
Whether you plan on selling your old jewelry to a private buyer or a well-known jeweler it’s crucial that you get to know them before you send your pieces from overseas. This could mean spending time reading reviews and reaching out to previous customers or it could mean exchanging a few emails.
