How to buy a Hermès bag?

To purchase a Hermès bag you need to follow the right steps in order for it to be a success, and for you to put your money into a good investment that will revalue over time. Next, we will give you some specific tips to buy a Hermès bag successfully and be able to seize it for future resale.

Purchase from trustworthy sources

One of the most important situations when it comes to buying a Hermès bag is the place from which you’re going to purchase it. This is very important because you can’t always find authentic Birkin or Kelly handbags when purchasing from random bag resale sites or bag resellers that don’t have enough reviews or clients that vouch for their professionalism. 

This is why, we recommend that you try to purchase your first luxury handbags from Hermès official stores because you can be 100% sure that they are authentic. However, it is well-known that Hermès stores are not an easy place to find Hermès bags immediately and let alone purchase them easily, that’s why we also recommend you buy from respectable Hermès resellers that have a proven clientele and enough comments about the way they operate business.

These professional Hermès resellers can be found on some online bag resale sites, or directly on Instagram, where you can testify to their business by checking comments and the amount of followers they have. You can also consider communicating with people that have been their clients.

Verify the authenticity

Before purchasing a Hermès bag from another place aside from Hermès official stores, you must check the authenticity of the bag, using the provided authenticity elements such as the official invoice and payment ticket. With these elements and an inspection of the pictures you have been sent, you can have a first approach to verifying that the Hermès bag is genuine.

If you chose a rightful Hermès reseller and they sent you all the details about the bag, you can trust them and purchase the product to then have a rigorous inspection at home, comparing the handbag and the documents. If you come across a Hermès reseller that doesn’t provide authenticity elements or tries to avoid the subject, don’t buy anything from them.

The authenticity of a luxury handbag is the most important aspect since it is the only thing that allows the product to revalue and for you to be able to resale it if you purchase a fake bag, you will not only lose the investment made but also any form of earning money back, the handbag will be useless.

Take care of your investment

Once you have purchased a Hermès Kelly or Birkin bag, you need to take care of its materials in order for it to retain its value and be able to revalue with time. For that, you need to know if you’re going to use the bag, or if you plan on storing it and saving it for resale in a few years. Either way, it is very important that you store it in a dry and dark place away from humidity and direct sunlight since this can damage the skin and hardware.

If you plan to use the handbag, be aware that you must avoid any liquid spillage and bump against any rough surface, that way it can keep its beauty and be perfect. Remember that the better kept the bag, the more that it can revalue and the more you can regain from your investment.

Nowadays there are thousands of sites to sell designer handbags, most of them dedicated to selling other luxury accessories from different brands. However, it may be tricky to choose the right spot to publish and put your Hermès bag for sale. To choose the right place you must have in mind that most of these sites take a commission from the final selling price of your handbag, or maybe even a percentage, which means that they take away a big part of your earnings.

And although these sites offer you a publishing space, they shouldn’t take away that much. This is why it is important to find the right site, so that you can keep as much money as possible and that your sale becomes profitable and worth it in the end. Another thing you must consider is that these sites feature millions of bags, so it may take longer to find a client that wants to buy yours. But where to sell Hermès bag?

On the other hand, share good pictures with the buyer, where they can see in detail the status of the skin, hardware, and structure.

And when it comes to authenticity, be sure to share all the documents and invoices that prove that your Hermès handbag was purchased legally and is in fact genuine. Remember that this is the most important thing that actually gives value to the bag, the fact that it is authentic and not a counterfeit or stolen bag.

Ship the bag with its components

When the sale is completed and the buyer has already paid, you must ship the Hermès handbag to their location. For this, check the bag once more, make sure that it has all of the components that it must contain; such as the original Hermès orange box, the dust bag for the bag and the clochette, the raincover if it came with it, and the authenticity documents. Include the invoices and authenticity proof in a separate envelope and place it inside the orange box, this way they are completely secured.

Follow the guidelines of the shipping company you chose, and make sure to take pictures while packing the handbag, this will be helpful to record everything it includes so the client can be aware in case something goes wrong during the shipping. On the other hand, always communicate with the buyer in case they want to hire insurance for the shipping, as Hermès handbags are very valuable luxury items. 

After you have shipped the handbag, share the tracking number with the buyer, so that they can be aware of the location of the bag and follow it until it reaches the final destination. Remain in communication with the buyer and ask them about the bag once they receive it, this will always be considered as a good gesture and it will give you good reviews as a Hermès reseller in the future.
