Heritage Offers 0% Seller Fee for Return Business
May 04, 2009

Heritage 0% Sellers Fee - Sell it Where You Bought it

In reading my Heritage email this morning, I noticed a bit of spectacular news. Heritage is instituting a new program for all it's auctions, in coins and in other collecting fields. It's a simple concept, but I can't recall any coin auction firm ever doing anything like this before. I asked friend and fellow blogger, George Cuhaj and he too does not recall any firm offering a deal like this in the past. For those of you buying high quality coins, this presents the possibility of a real money saving proposition, so better check it out.

Here's the details:

Reduced auction commissions when you resell your winnings!

When you win any lot worth with a hammer price of $1,000 or more (or $2,500 for Art and Natural History lots), you will receive a coupon that entitles you (or your heirs) to re-consign that lot to Heritage at a reduced seller's commission. Selling through Heritage is a convenient and hassle free way to maximize your return (find out why). Maybe you'll need to make room in your collection for something better, perhaps your collecting tastes will change, or maybe it will be your heirs that benefit; but be sure to save the coupon, which could be worth hundreds or thousands of dollars.

* Coins: 0% Seller's Commission for all items $1K or more.
* Comics: 50% of the usual Seller's Commission for all items between $1K & $10K, and 0% for items $10K and over.
* All Other Categories: 50% of the usual Seller's Commission for everything else over $1K ($2,500 for Art & Natural History).

Sometimes a simple little idea can be genius. The best deals are always good for both parties and in this case Heritage has struck upon something that benefits many of their regular high high end customers, while ensuring future business for their firm. A win, win situation.
