I do, but I feel a bit like a detective, you know searching the items for anything that could be considered the slightest flaw. I tend to be somebody who goes a bit mad on a brand and then gets enough of it, and due to work have to wear a lot of the latest stuff, so I have and am unloading stuff like Gucci, Emilio Pucci, Bottega Veneta, YSL and Dior. Their "Please lower your price" mails drive me nuts, if I spent 2K on a pair of boots, I want at least a bit back and I don't wear the items a lot, so selling for 200 to 300 seems fairly reasonable, but not their suggested price of 150. If I am selling this or last season for 1/10th of the retail price, I am not going to take offers as they usually don't follow through, that is why I did switch the offers off, if a good bargain isn't good enough for the person who can afford "supermarket's own brand" but thinks she should be getting high end for even less, I am not the parent or her sponsor. I might as well give it to a charity then, so at least the right people benefit from it.Would you still sell expensive items through them? I'm really torn at this point. I like the increased exposure over local sites, but I have spent so much time dealing with issues on just 6 sales. And they rarely back their sellers, it seems.
As much as I hate the accepted offers that don't get paid, I'm willing to deal with that if the actual sales go smoothly. The best ones are when the potential buyer accepts a counteroffer and then doesn't buy the item. Why even accept?!
ETA: I am not a massive Zara fan, but unloaded a few items I bought on a whim and was surprised how quickly they went, given that they tend to be much cheaper when you buy them, your return percentage seems to be higher than if you offer "real" designer
