How To Sell Your Chanel Bag Online


Are you considering or have you ever considered selling your Chanel bag? Were you anxious about making a decision and going through the processes? And so how to actually sell your Chanel bag online? If you have don’t feel discouraged because there are plenty of reasons to be a little hesitant about selling your bag. There are so many scam artists in this industry that buying and selling online is extremely risky.

When you’re on the consumer side of the table you’re anxious about purchasing a fake bag, or a bag that’s not in the condition it was promised to be in. Staying on the lookout for scammers when you’re selling online is also just as crucial. Always be vigilant about who exactly you’re selling to. It’s hard to trace buyers from other countries, and it’s especially hard to trace buyers who are really scam artists.

Here are few situations that could occur when selling to a scammer.

1. One situation that could happen is that the transaction goes over well, but the “buyer” reports to eBay that they have not received the bag. Here, the scammer is making it seem as if you are actually the scammer. It’s a stressful scenario considering that eBay can’t actually verify that the customer received the bag.

2. Selling to skeptical buyers can be quite stressful. There’s not much worse than having a potential buyer who takes long to complete the transaction because they’re skeptical. You can’t really blame them, however. With all the scammers on the web that are selling fake Chanel bags online, it’s smart to be a bit skeptical. This also can be a tough situation to deal with.

3. The bag gets lost in transit. This is quite possibly one of the hardest, most nerve wracking situations to encounter. I’m sure most of the employees at customs offices know the value of Chanel handbags. They wouldn’t have a problem with just taking it for themselves. So what’s the solution if this happens? Well, you could report it at the office, but most of these places have limited liabilities.

4. The buyer is not willing to pay. You may come across some buyers who simply want you to send the bag before they pay. I’m sorry, but most business transactions don’t work that way. The thing with these people is that if you did send the bag out before they paid, they wouldn’t pay. This type of situation is actually common. Whatever you do, don’t send out your Chanel bag without some form of payment.

5. The last scenario to be on the lookout for is when the buyer claims they are not satisfied with your bag. They’ll go through all of the protocol of returning the bag, but instead of it being your bag, they return a fake bag. There’s technically nothing you can do in this type of situation.

With that being said, consider a few tips to help you when selling your Chanel handbag online.

1. Sell your Chanel bag online to a local buyer. Meet up with the buyer, and talk to them. Even visit a Chanel boutique so that you can verify the authenticity of your bag. This should speed up the process of the transaction. Make sure both exchanges happen simultaneously.

2. Be sure that your Chanel bag is insured. Yes, you can insure your bag. if your bag is insured it makes dealing with the above scenarios a lot easier, if they do happen to you.

3. Instead of using PayPal or eBay, I use IBAN. It’s not a requirement, but I find it easier than both PayPal and eBay. If you’re selling your bag abroad, send it first to someone you trust in that country and have them contact the buyer.

4. Sell your bag to a local consignment store. This is probably the easiest way to sell your Chanel bag. You’ll have money right away, and you’ll have the guarantee that your bag is in the hands of trustworthy people.

5. Sell your bag to well-known Chanel lovers on sites like this one. There are plenty of communities where handbag aficionados hang out discussing their love of bags. There is less of a risk in selling to them because most likely they’re reputable, active members of the forums.

So tell me what you think? Do you find it a little easier to sell your handbag, now? I really hope so.

  1. Hi,

    I am selling my Chanel boy medium handbag that’s been used only once. Got it as a present and not so much into the color. Selling price $3500usd. Do email me if interested.

  2. Advice please
    I’m selling a chanel bag on ebay. It’s as new/never used, boxed etc.. I deliberately did not show the the authentication number as I thought that anyone that wants to make a fake could copy it….someone has mailed me for the number and asked nothing else – should I give it to them? I checked their rating out and they seem to sell a smorgasbord of things – mostly cheap. Although I am not a snob, it does not fill me with confidence….but they could be genuine. Am I doing the right thing not advertising the number, or doesn’t it really matter? I’d be prepared to walk into a Chanel store with any serious buyer to verify – obviously hoping that they do not mug me in the process.

    • Hi Claire, giving authentication number doesn’t really add any value as it doesn’t verify whether your bag is real or not. The real way to authentic a bag is to check it personally. Check the leather, stitches and other details. So giving or not giving doesn’t really matter. If you feel like you shouldn’t, then don’t give it.

  3. Iamlooking to sell a pristine condition Chanel, caviar leather, jumbo classic flag, with mademoiselle clasp for 3500, ono. if anyone would be interested please contact me for further info.

  7. Hello.
    I’m selling my easy caviar jumbo flap in black. Item condition is excellent.

  8. I am trying to sell a Chanel purse on EBay & it just got taken down by Ebay & I received an e-mail from Chanel attorney that if I put it back up I will be sued by Chanel… please help!

        • I’m sorry, I mean; did they told you why you can’t sell your bag on Ebay? Do they think it’s a replica or something?

          • You have a couple more options:

            1. Sell it to the consignment store
            2. You might want to ask friends of friends
            3. You might try at other sites, like deluxe mall, maybe let it check it’s authentic by a designer bag verification company (, I heard a couple of times about their site, but never worked with them). But you also have the receipt right, which can be supportive?

            Don’t take it personal from Chanel, there are many counterfeiters on the internet.

  9. I have sold several Chanel bags through the internet. If you are rushing to sell your bag, you might become a victim of a scammer. The best way to sell is to put some notes on the papers what qualifies your buyer and then find the person who matches your qualification. A lot of emotion can come to play when you sell your thousands dollar worth of bag. I mean, what if something goes wrong and you lose all your money? What if you send the bag and it never returns. That would be horrible.

  10. I sold my jumbo single flap last week on Ebay. The buyer said she did not receive the box, I was scared and call ups up. It happen they had some delay. I have heard horror stories about sending Chanel through ups and other post companies. Never again

  11. I think I will get more from the internet than the cosignment store, but I am scared to send my Chanel bag to the buyer. If something happens I lose my bag and my money =(
