Do people on HF actually purchase jeans here?  

post #1 of 92
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am a new seller on HonestMall and posted 3 pairs of R&R and 1 TR Coat yesterday, my question is, do things actually get sold here? To be more specific I am selling brand new jeans for 185$ including shipping and pointed out that I work out deals for multiple items and even consider offers...

In canada these jeans retail close to or $400 each, I do realize that the US prices are much lower, but still believe my price is pretty cheap, am I wrong? and would you purchase from me for that price or not, lets say two pairs for 320$ ??

Or am I just wasting my time and should post on ebay only?

Thanks!

it depends what people are looking for. prices in the US are way less than what they are in canada. a lot of people on here are looking to spend less in general so you may not get what you're looking for. also you just listed them not to long ago am i correct? items don't always sell overnight. if you want more money for your items i recommend ebay

Not so much at that price because most of the time things can be found cheaper, especially on here.

I sold two pairs of jeans this morning, and one pair last week, so yes, things absolutely do sell on here, quite often, in fact.

You can't rely on your price being good just because of how much the retail is in Canada, you have to look at what the goods you are selling can be had for HERE, since the people HERE that are selling the same or similar items are your competition.

WELCOME! & Good Luck!

Yes as Cherie said ^ Prices are generally lower here on HF , everyone is looking for a deal.
You will get more $ if you list on ebay but by selling here you gain a reputation and dont have to deal with crazy ebayers.

^ i agree w/ cherie

but one perk is it's safer to sell in HM as you wont get ripped off or crazies claiming your stuff is fake when it's not. You can purchase with confidence because everyone on HF sells authentic and if not they're usually banned. It's free (no ebay fees)!!! and sometimes it does take a while to sell stuff but it is a more pleasent experience all around.

I've sold about 5 pairs of jeans on here and have had nothing but wonderful experiences w/ all my buyers! (though they never have left me feed back poo)

personally i'd only use Ebay as a back up if my stuff wasnt seeling in HM

btw welcome to hf!

Thank you for all the info, I understand people are here for a deal, being a marketing freak I am trying to get a better understanding of how much new R&R jeans go for, pre-used to me is a total different market. So I was wondering if at 160$ a pair, do I have a competitive price for HF or not even close? I mean if someone is selling new R&Rs for 100$ on a regular basis.. they must be fake right? My stuff is obviously the real deal, and for reasons I do not have to disclose, I manage to get great deals

not true at all. if they're on here they're real, fakes are weeded out asap if anyone would have the balls to even list fakes here

on ebay deals happen i've seen plenty of brand new styles go for cheap

its also going to depend on size, wash, style etc. some are more popular than others and i know many on here don't like the new R so that makes a difference too

Agreed and Agreed, HOWEVER, once again being in sales, I myself know for example if I was selling a playstation 3 at an incredibly low price compared to retail on a regular basis, sony would come after my listings. Why? Because I am screwing up the market and taking alot of business away from stores and suppliers. Here in canada sales are way down because of the dollar being so high and prices not dropping, people are buying more and more online or driving to the states to get their shopping fix.

How come R&R or any other major brand come bother you guys for selling 300$ jeans for 100$????
post #13 of 92
I have gotten authentic TR for $1 before.. So it does happen. If people undersell, yeah it will be hard for sellers to sell things at a normal price.
I dont think your prices are bad, and your jeans are pretty new styles so I think youll sell but it takes some time and people in the US arent buying a lot right now either.. Most of my ebay sales are international since its cheap to buy from the US right now.
Dont give up hope though!

you can find R&R at certain marshall's for $49.99 so yeah you can find stuff for cheap and what can R&R do if they're real?

Well I can answer that, R&R and 99% of major brands deal with suppliers, usually two for the US - EAST and WEST and one for Canada. Here is how it works, if you have a clothing store and wish to sell a certain brand, you must go through this supplier. Once there you get a wholesale price and a FIXED retail price. Why? because if you let the stores decide to sell at whatever price they wish, than no one will be able to compete with the big boys like holt renfrew. This is not Wal Mart that decides to lower prices at their own will. If a store is caught selling under retail, they loose their supplier account forever.

This is how everything works, even the milk you buy at the store has a fixed price. You cannot decide what something is worth, that way anyone has the chance to run their store since prices are more or less the same everywhere without taking in account clearance sales and such.

So R&R can do alot more than you believe my dear, trust me on that, I deal with them on a daily basis and would not like to let them know about this website myself. I do not rat

Just think about it, being the owner of this website, living in the US, if R&R being a multi-million dollar company comes at me with a lawsuit to shut me down, unless I am in China, I am shutting down.

They can also have ANY ebay listing removed at their will, I have worked on ebay for years now and I know how it works in and out.
post #18 of 92
well if R&R was so concerned you'd think they'd stop their items from going to tjmaxx, nordies rack, off fifth, NM last call, marshall's, loehmanns, etc but they haven't done anything yet. hell they even had a sample sale where their items were priced anywhere from $70-$100

and stores obviously don't have to sell for a certain price b/c i've gotten R&R from bloomies for $70
post #19 of 92
well obviously R&R vero is doing a very shitty job b/c there are more fakes on ebay than real so if they really wanted to do something you think they would've done it already. there are also tons, and i mean tons of fake websites as well

Of course! Samples are worth less than that, I am not familiar with the stores you speak of, but if they are LARGE stores that buy older styles for less and sell for less such as Winners in canada, that is normal and accepted, suppliers need to clear their stock in order to make room for the new stuff. I am talking new season latest styles, not from past selling periods

I never said R&R was doing anything, I said they can if they want to do not misunderstand me.
post #22 of 92
actually the there were plenty of jeans at the sample sale that weren't real samples. they're jeans that are already out in the market and new for this season. BLOOMINGDALES is a HUGE department store here in the US, they do not carry old stuff they carry tons of premium denim and high end designers
post #23 of 92
poeple have also found new seasons styles at discount stores so the discount stores can carry both new and older season items
post #24 of 92
of course new styles are worth more than older styles, supposedly anyways

in the case of R&Rs, the new squashed Rs are very very extremely *not popular*. it makes my bum look flat and squashed like the Rs themselves! LOL..... and it seems like i'm not the only one with this problem.

so even though they are new, in season, us girls are just not willing to pay premium pricing to have our bum flattened and squashed if you know what I mean

on the other hand, if there's an older pair, for example........... xenax blue?? many girls are still willing to pay top dollars for those, because they are rare, beautiful, and next to impossible to get!!

if you can get more sought after styles, like.. silver strutter for example, you'd probably be able to sell those much much easily!!

You're trying to make a big deal out of nothing. HonestForum, like eBay, is a platform for individuals to sell one another goods. The site itself makes no money off of the transactions, and as such it is not subject to any rules or regulations by R&R. There is nothing Rock & Republic could do to shut down this website, as it is entirely legal and not infringing upon any copyrights or anything of that sort.

The sellers are not businesses buying jeans from an R&R supplier, they are individuals who for whatever reason got ahold of cheap jeans and want to make some money off them. (Or in some cases, bought jeans at full price but don't like them and want to make at least part of the cost back.)

EDIT: politeness improved
