How To Launch A Luxury Resale Business

Do you live and breathe luxury? The bags, shoes, clothes and everything that comes with an expensive price tag? Have you bought and sold on the resale market and just knew you could turn your side hustle into a full-time business? Do you source and sell for friends and family? If you answered yes to any of the above, now is the time to turn your passion into profit and we’re going to walk you through the process of launching your own luxury resale business.

Luxury resale is a unique category with obstacles not found in other industries, and you cannot treat it like you would any other business. Understanding everything from licensing to insurance, COGS to ROI, authentication, and not to mention that not all brands are equal, taking each step one by one and making the right choices for your vision is just the beginning of what you will learn in this course.
