Selling your wedding dress might seem like a daunting task, but don't worry, we're here to help you make a quick and easy sale.
Firstly, identify the key information about your dress - designer, style, size, silhouette, main colour, sleeve style, neckline, material, condition, status (e.g. 'unworn sample' or 'used and dry cleaned'), and so on. Additional information, such as the date it was initially purchased and its original price, would be useful to include in your item description too.
Try to be as detailed and accurate with your item description as possible. Once you are happy that you have included enough information about your wedding dress, you're ready to make your listing!
Search for similar pieces on eBay and see how other sellers are valuing them. Pay attention to the condition of your wedding dress too - this will impact its sale value.
If you have a specific price in mind for your wedding dress, you may want to choose the fixed-price listing option over an auction-style listing. You never know though: an auction listing could fetch more than your original estimate, so experiment with your listings and see which method is more successful.
Once you have provided the item description, you will see a recommended price, which can be a good indication of how much your wedding dress is worth.
Here are a few pointers for a successful sale:
Write a detailed and accurate item description.
Take clear photos of your wedding dress, any accessories and original storage bag.
Price your item competitively and offer free delivery if possible.
We know that safety is important to you when selling online. Automatic protection against high-risk buyers, seller protection with eBay Money Back Guarantee and our round-the-clock customer service team will help to ensure a smooth selling process.
Wedding dresses can be tricky to ship due to size and weight. It may be easier for a potential buyer to pick the item up themselves, so offer 'Local collection' when you list as well as the usual delivery options.
