Everything you need to sell collectibles
Learn more about selling collectibles
Like any other high-ticket business, before you start selling collectibles online, you have to decide on your business model and the types of collectibles you want to sell. Then, you can create a Shopify store and get everything else running. With a Shopify store, you get a digital storefront to upload photos of your collectibles and give a captivating story behind each item. You can sell directly to customers and even integrate with third-party marketing platforms to get the word out.
You can set up a Shopify store from start to finish in a few easy steps, market your collectibles via the Facebook and Instagram ad integrations, and close deals seamlessly with Shopify’s lightning-fast checkout. Shopify also allows you to sell your collectibles on other third-party platforms and auction sites.
Yes, you certainly can! Shopify gives you everything you'll need out-of-the-box to start selling collectibles online. That includes a beautiful online store, over 100 payment gateway options, multiple shipping partner integrations, as well as marketing features depending on the plan you choose. With the Shopify app store, you can benefit from over 6,000 apps to customize your store to meet the unique needs of your business. Plus, if you are one of the many collectors who own a physical store, Shopify POS allows you to collect in-person payments and automatically logs your sales in sync with those on your online store.
Collectibles and antiques feature higher price tags than ever, and many people see them as high-yield investments. A collectible's popularity, rarity, history, and the kind of audience you sell it to will determine how much money you make on it. With the right buyer, the sky's the limit for how much you can sell a collectible.
Price your collectibles based on their popularity, their rarity, and the rich history they hold. The rarer and or more ancient a collectible is, the pricier it should be. It would help if you also looked at how your competition is pricing similar collectibles and then decide whether to sell higher or lower. You will then have to factor in shipping costs, especially for heavy collectibles, and make security arrangements for costly collectibles.
