Price Quotes. You may submit descriptions and pictures of items for direct sale by completing our consignment form (“Start Selling”). After receiving your submission, we will review your submission. If your item is accepted for sale, we will email you a consignment quote and a buyout quote. If you accept one of the Consignment quote or Buyout Offer, you must deliver your Item to Caviar Gauche for assessment and possible sale.
Quotes are in Canadian dollar and valid for thirty (30) days, at which time they expire. Once a quote has expired, you may resubmit a quote request for a new quote.
Assessment of the item (for Consignment or Buyout). Upon receipt of your Item, we will review your Item to confirm that it is authentic and that its condition is consistent with the description you provided in your original submission.
Authentic Items in the Represented Condition.
Consignment: If we determine that the Item is authentic and in the condition described in your original submission, we will photograph and list your item for sale.
Buyout: If we determine that the Item is authentic and in the condition described in your original submission, we will issue payment to you for the Buyout Offer.
Authentic Items in Different Condition. If we determine that your Buyout Item is authentic but not in the condition described in your original submission, we will deliver to you an updated Buyout Offer or consignment price. Accessories (straps, locks and keys, pouchettes, etc.) that were expected but not shipped by the seller may also result in an updated Buyout Offer or consignment price. If you accept the updated Buyout Offer, we will issue payment to you for the updated Buyout Offer.
Unauthentic Items. If your item is determined as unauthentic by our team, you will be charged a mandatory 350$ fee per item in order to receive your item back. This covers shipping and all costs related to the assessment of the item. This fee must be paid within (30) days, or the item is destroyed in order to be removed from circulating in the resell market.
Retention of Sale Items. We reserve the right to take any action permitted under the law to offset any costs incurred in connection with your submission of unauthentic sale items, including but not limited to retaining any of your authentic Sale Items or referring the matter to a third party collections agency.
