Our Selling Strategy
Our initial approach is to list your items under an auction strategy. This is to allow your items the best shot to sell at the highest price. If your items do not sell under our initial approach we will change to buy it now strategy. Once we collect your items we tag, picture, research, authenticate and then list your items. After 6 months we will ask if you want to donate or take the items back. If you want your items back we can either send them to you and you would be responsible for the shipping label or you could pick them up.

HOW AND WHEN DO I GET PAID?
Our payment system runs monthly, and payments are made when you have completed sales between the first and the last day of every month.
Your money and invoice will reflect the completed sales from the previous month, so if you have sales in February, you will be paid in March.
Completed sales are those that have been paid for and shipped.
Buyers have approximately two weeks before they are required to pay, so items that appear to sell one month, may not be considered completed until the following month.
Items that buyers do not pay for are re-listed after the sale is disputed with eBay.
