Sellers receive many benefits in selling certified collectibles through CertifiedLink. These include, but are not limited to:
Instant Access To Aggressive Bidders
We are an industry innovator with extensive experience in target marketing. Our team has spent countless hours and millions of dollars over more than two decades nurturing countless loyal buyers of valuable certified collectibles. As a result, our sellers gain wide exposure for their collectibles in front of important buyers on CertifiedLink.com.
Long Track Record Of Exceptional Customer Service
We have been online since 1996, virtually since the inception of the Web as a viable marketing tool. In that time we have established a reputation for exceptional customer service, expertise, payment reliability, and our team strives for general integrity that is unmatched within the collectibles field. From our inception, the focus of our service has been to work on behalf of the consignment seller and we do not have the conflicts of interests when representing your material that a firm conducting a large amount of dealer activity would have.
Low Cost Commission Structure
Due to our high volume of sales across platforms, our firm is able to offer sellers a low cost commission structure in the collectibles arena. Sellers benefit by receiving the vast majority of the realized sales price as opposed to some more traditional auction firms, where total commissions can be as high as triple what we typically charge. Keep in mind that a high buyer premium that is generated off of the sale of your item, if retained by the auction house, decreases the net amount of money you receive for that item by the amount of the buyer premium!
From our own targeted email marketing to an exclusive bidder base to the leveraging of effective online and offline partnerships, news feeds and social media, we ensure that collectors are aware of each auction from the early preview starting weeks before launch through the end of the auction.
We leverage our knowledge and relationships with the certification companies to screen items from your collection for certification, determining what makes sense to get certified and what doesn’t given the cost of certification. We pass along cost discounts where possible and even take care of the certification fees upfront for our sellers, deducting the costs only after the sale.
CertifiedLink provides protection to both buyer AND seller against fraud. It is easy for an eBay buyer to swindle an eBay seller since eBay and Paypal never take possession of sold items prior to a buyer’s receipt. Our service, however, accepts payments from buyers (without a processing fee for sellers) and verifies seller items prior to sending them to buyers. This patented method enables our firm to prevent costly disputes and seller losses that other services cannot.
Credit Card Acceptance without Seller Fees
Unlike other auction houses, CertifiedLink does not charge the seller an additional fee when the buyer chooses to pay with a credit card. This means no surprising unexpected fees and more in your pocket!
Up Front Cash Advances
Interested in getting payment in now for items sold later? CertifiedLink offers up front cash advances upon receipt of select consignments so you can take care of what you need to immediately, and still position your collectibles to receive top dollar within CertifiedLink auctions.
