Craving this season’s hottest new designer bag but need to pay rent instead? Consider visiting online site Luxe Designer Handbags for your newest handbag addition.

This site features all of the latest styles, gently worn, and offers both an option to pay in full or a monthly payment plan. You can find pretty much any designer you’re looking for on their site from Louis Vuitton to Gucci! We caught up with Luxe Designer Handbag’s specialist, who answered a few of our questions about purchasing pre-owned bags.

1. What are the most important things to consider before buying a used designer handbag online?

When shopping online for used designer handbags, on sites like Luxe DH it is very important to feel safe and secure. There are so many sites out there offering fake merchandise. For LuxeDH, authenticity is of paramount importance. We employ a team of authenticators with a combined 25 plus years of experience authenticating handbags. In addition, LuxeDH is listed as a recommended seller on one of the oldest and most trusted sources of designer handbag authentication services, MyPoupette.

2. If the bag is on-trend, why would the dealer want to get rid of it?

Some women own a bag for a month or two and realize that either the bag is not their personal style and they want to sell to us to make some extra money. Some tire of their bags quickly and are on to the next quest to find their dream

3. What are some questions the buyer should be asking the dealer before they buy?

It is important for a buyer to know the condition of the bag they are purchasing. All of our handbags are pre-loved and most are in excellent condition. Always make sure to look at all of the pictures. Also, the size of the bag they are purchasing is equally as important. Since most women want to know how they will look in the bag, we show all of our bags with a mannequin, but it is very important to look at the measurements provided in the description.


4. Is there anything that the dealer doesn’t have to tell the buyer?

Our site discloses every bit of information that we have to our customers. It is extremely important for all customers of pre-owned goods to have as much information as possible before making a purchase.

5. How much less than the asking amount is appropriate for the buyer to negotiate?

Our site offers different promotions and coupon codes depending on what sale we are running.

6. What is the protocol usually for a customer who receives their bag in the mail and is unhappy?

We offer a fantastic hassle free return policy. Every customer has 5 days from the day their handbag was delivered to call or email us to request a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number for a full refund. After the initial 5 day period, every customer has 30 days from the day their handbag was delivered to get an RMA for an exchange of equal or greater value.

7. What are some warning signs that people should be aware of before buying?

There are so many warning signs! If a buyer sees that there is a Chanel listed for $ 200, then they should stay away. Also, the pictures shown on sites should look very unique. All of our handbags are photographed by a professional and are one of a kind. We show the bags as is so that there are no surprises when the customer receives their dream handbag!
