Where to sell?

Postby ikendal » Fri Sep 20, 2013 12:57 pm

Can anyone provide a comparison of where to sell collectable whisky?

I used to use ebay - alas no more...
Scotchwhiskyauction looks good but expensive

is there anywhere else...

I need to recoup on my investments!!!

you can still sell on ebay you just dont tell ebay your selling a full bottle so dont do a photo of a full bottle say you are selling a empty container
the only problem is it doesnt allways work
you ask buyers to contact you about what your selling it sometimes works as ebay are a bit thick
there are plenty of places to sell do goggle search but read all the small print first and make sure you read the post office rules for sending alcahol
best of luck

SWA takes only 20% net, plus a few quid for the listing honestly, that aint so bad.
In a private sale, you'd scarcely make more than that if your lucky.

theres pros and cons in everything the swa auction as with some others is you have to send the bottle to so costs extra on postage but you get more exposure ie worldwide

whiskybid and delux you send the bottles yourself but you cant send worlwide so you have a reduced audience so probably not such a good price

i did ask for comments about various whisky auctions but got none :headbang:

As I mentioned on a previous post, reading comprehension is a useful skill.
SWA takes 10% from buyer plus 10% from seller = 20% NET fees, which is exactly what I wrote.
Beware of sellers hyping their goods.

SWA, as mentioned, charge the buyer 10 pct, the seller 10 pct and a £3 listing fee. VAT is also charged on the 10 pcts, I think. So they take more than 20 pct of what the buyer pays for the bottle.

Whiskyauction.com is about the same. A little cheaper because of the VAT. And whiskyauction give small concessions for having a number of bottles in the auction. It's harder to get whiskies to whiskyauction because of the postage situation.

But SWA are pretty good. I would recommend them as they achieve some pretty high prices. Unfortunately, though, they don't insure shipments - a downside for buyers. It's at your own risk.

I have sold & bought a few bottles on SWA, with no problems.

If a bottle sells for £100=10% com= £10 + vat 20%.
total for buyer or seller=£12
Does not include the listing fee for the seller, £3 no reserve, £4 with reserve.

Mctears
same £100 bottle would be = £21.60
Not sure if they charge to list, guess they do.
I would not use them for selling, had some bad issues with them in the past.


I still sell the odd bottle on ebay, with no issues, slight hassle with shipping but if you do some research it is not a problem.

I sold a few bottles with whisky auctions edinburgh, happy with the prices reached. They offer free UK courier collection, it was TNT who picked up, made it a bit cheaper overall, seller fees were 10% plus £3 listing fee.
