But navigating which bag to buy and how to buy it can often be a complex process, so here are a few tips to help you when buying a designer handbag online.
- Buy from a trusted retailer.
There are many online stores and websites that sell luxury designer handbags. Often at times, seller use altered images of the products that they are selling to make them look more authentic and the description is different than that to the exact item. Pay close attention to the details, by checking the photos carefully and reading the descriptions and looking at the condition very closely. If the description of the bag says something like “inspired by” or “XXX style”, it is probable a copy. These types of retailers to to lure you into believing it is genuine, but they protect themselves by saying it is similar to, without actually claiming to be a designer bag. This is why it is important to do your research before buying, to validate that the retailer is legitimate and is not selling fakes. One way to do so is to read the sellers feedback. Read the reviews that customers and consumers have written, they usually tell you all about the seller, the quality and authenticity of their merchandise, etc. if there are more positive reviews then its safe to say that that is a trusted retailer. But if there are a larger number of negative reviews, this is a sign to not purchase from that seller to avoid a negative experience.
- Pay attention to the features and details of the bag.
When purchasing a designer handbag online, always be sure to ask questions about the condition of the bag and request that the retailer send you additional information such as photos and videos of the item, to assure its authenticity and condition. If the retailer is unable or refuses to send you any information that you are seeking regarding the item, then you might be dealing with an unreliable retailer that is most likely selling counterfeits. A retailer that sells expensive luxury designer handbags and is legitimate will always have staff with impeccable customer service that is able and willing to provide you with any information that you are looking for.
- Date Codes and Authenticity:
Just like a serial number, designer handbags have a date code stamped on the inside. There are many online resources and ways to look up these dates to find out how old or new the bag may be. Brands such as Hermès, Chanel, Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton have these in their merchandise. Authentication is most important when purchasing a designer handbag. It should always be sold complete with its respective manufacturer’s warranty. Some models have identity cards, so if the one you wish to buy should have one, ask to see a photo of it.

Prices of designer handbags vary depending on the brand, material, design, color, collection, etc. Don’t just look for a great deal, think about what you want in advance, and make sure to research the style and brand beforehand. While you might find a bag with a too-good -to -be-true price, then maybe it is! If you see a bag with a price tag that is way off than its original value then it is probably a fake. As previously mentioned, always ask for information on the item.
