Auriks gives you two options to sell your items through us:
- Direct sale.
We will purchase your item directly from you at a price we mutually agree upon based on the item’s market value. Condition, age, original boxes, paperwork, and whether the item is personalized determine the market value. Fill out the form below and we will contact you within four working days with a quote. Once you have accepted the quote and we have received the item, we will examine it. It may take up to two working days for this examination to be completed. Once we have determined that the item meets the description, we will pay you within 24 hours.
Within seven days, you will be able to convert your designer items into cash!
- You can sell your items on consignment.
As part of our commitment to provide the best value to clients, we only deal in super-brand designer jewellery and watches that are in Very Good Condition or better, and that are preferably accompanied by their original certificates and/or receipts. At 12% + VAT of the sale price, we offer the most competitive commission on the market. Commissions on other resell platforms can reach 20%+, as shown in the following table:
|Auriks||Flat 12% +VAT|
|Vestiaire Collective||25-40% (charged according to the value)|
|The Real Real||30-40% (charged according to the value)|
|Rebelle (EU only)||30%+|
Our 12%+VAT price includes cleaning of the item, photography, video, and advertising on our website, social media channels, and through our partners.
All of our fees are transparent and there are no hidden costs, such as “operational costs” or “marketing costs”. There is just a 12% fee plus VAT.
