How our consignment program works
If you have a knife or a fidget toy you would like to sell through our Consignment Program, this is the right place to start. Click HERE to fill the form and send us a request. After your consignment request has been accepted, we will provide you with the shipping address to which you can ship your item(s). Please note that we do not accept knives or fidget toys with an estimated market value of less than 300 USD. We handle all the pictures, the write – ups, listing and shipping. Once a knife is sold, Fablades will deduct a listing fee of 10% plus 5% PayPal fee from the final sale price. The net balance will be sent to the seller in USD via PayPal within 14 business days from the date of the delivery. We are not accepting any illegal items (balisongs, automatic, otf), or items with Elephant Ivory, stolen items or banned/illegal materials of any kind.
We recommend insuring your shipment, and using an express service. We are not responsible for shipping or insurance costs and lost packages when receiving or returning consignment items. Please contact us through email or the consignment form first, after your consignment request has been accepted, we will provide you with the shipping address. Items sent should be clean and in sellable condition. Repair and/or cleaning fees will be charged if we need to work on a knife to make it presentable and will delay placement on the site. We will contact you to confirm that we have received your knives.
We will offer our suggestions on pricing for any consignment knives but ultimately the decision is up to you. Some people prefer to let us completely handle the pricing of their knives, and others have specific prices in mind that they want us to follow. Proper pricing can be the difference between selling an item in minutes and sitting on it for months, so we will work with you to find a price that will both meet your needs and result in a sale. Please be aware that we cannot offer our specific pricing suggestions until your knives are in our hands, but we guarantee that we will only post your items at prices that satisfy you. Also, this process can take some time. Please be patient while we get your items ready to be listed. We reserve the right to decline any item for consignment for any reason.
If you choose to change the price on your consignment item, let us know about it. If it didn’t sell at the original price it was posted the first time, it probably will this time with a lowered price. Sometimes a price drop and a little exposure is all it takes to make a knife sell.
After deducting Fablades fees mentioned above, The net balance will be sent to the seller in USD via PayPal within 14 business days from the date of the delivery. Please be aware it is YOUR responsibility to notify us of any email address changes so that we send the payment to the correct address. Please note that we determine the sale date of a knife by when it is fully paid and shipped to the customer. Please contact us if you have any specific questions regarding your payouts.
