Then, you’ll be prompted to fill in your product description, which should outline the bag’s condition along with other important details such as if this handbag been used or is it only pre-owned.

What are the best ways to ship used designer handbags after selling them on eBay?
If your handbag includes a dust cover, place the bag inside. Otherwise, secure the handbag inside of a soft plastic bag. This will protect the material along with any gemstones or other decorative embellishments. Place the handbag in a sturdy box and fill it with a dense layer of packing materials to prevent the bag from moving around. Then, proceed to My eBay and print your custom shipping label.
Can I sell used or pre-owned designer replica handbags on eBay?
eBay only allows you to sell authentic designer handbags. Users are prohibited from selling fake, counterfeit, or replica items that infringe upon the trademark of any brand as such sales are illegal. For example, you cannot sell a bag bearing the Gucci name if the bag was not officially manufactured and licensed by Gucci. You can sell designer-inspired handbags, but these bags must not bear any trademarked logos, features, or insignia.
