Our consignment policy is simple: We list your coins on our eBay site as auctions, you keep 80% of the final price, and we keep 20%
For example, on a $100 sale of a coin, you keep $80.
Many times, the prices we net are much higher than other sellers, as we have a loyal following of clients around the world, which we have been building since 2007 and is reflected in our nearly 70,000 successful sales around the world! Which means more money for you!
1. How do I get started?
The fastest way to get started is to fill out our contact form located at the bottom of this page.
(Please include a brief description of the type of material you are looking to sell in the message box of the contact form)
Note: For large collections ($100,000+), we can travel anywhere within the United States and much of Europe to provide you with in-person consultations and logistical support for the liquidation of material!
2. How will you track the sale of my goods?
We will provide you with an individual link to track your auctions once they go live as well as (upon consignment) a full list of all items successfully consigned.
3. What is the average turnaround time?
For collections smaller than 100 lots, from consignment to payout, our average turnaround time is 3 weeks! For larger collections, we will work with you to come up with a plan to maximize the amount of money that you net!
4. What is a typical auction like?
We generally list our items for 10 days, ending on a Sunday evening. We have found over the years that coins generally net the highest prices when ending on Sunday nights. We avoid ending listings on major holidays. We typically sell the items at no reserve, starting at .99, letting the market decide the true value of the items.
5. When will I get paid?
For typical auction material, we will send out a check on or before the Thursday following the auction! We typically will payout via check but
can also pay via other methods such as Paypal.
6. What about eBay and Paypal fees?
Fees from eBay and Paypal come out of our end, which adds up to 13.5%. For example, on a sale of $100, you keep $80 and eBay and Paypal take $13.50 out of our $20 (aka we make $6.50.)
7. What are the pros and cons of consignment rather than an outright sale?
While we are constant buyers of quality material, we tend to purchase only material we can net a much higher sales percentage than our consignment rates. While the cost to you on a consignment will be only 20%, a typical outright purchase would have to provide us with a spread closer to 35%.
8. What are my responsibilities as a Consignor?
First, we ask that all consignors fill out and sign our consignment agreement. We will not take possession of any material without this agreement on file. We ask that any items sent, you have full ownership of and the right to sell such items. We also ask that you do not knowingly send any counterfeit items.
