My consignment fees are as follows:
25% of gross for items under $500,
20% $501 to $1000,
15% $1001 and up.
Out of my percentage comes any credit card fees or paypal fees (up to 5% for certain cards). The buyer pays the shipping.
Items must be in my possession and I offer the buyer an authenticity guarantee. In return for my "cut" as they say, I handle the total transaction, including shipping the item to the new owner.
A check will be sent to the consignor once the item has been received by the new owner and they are content with their purchase. This policy has been very effective for 14 years, and has served the consignors well.
