Security when selling a watch
1. Take care of your privacy
Only share the necessary information about the product in the ad.
2. Be careful about buyers
As well as when buying, in sales situations, you should be careful with whom you deal with. If the transaction requires sending the product or traveling, you should be especially careful about who you deal with. For example, when selling by cash on delivery, it is a good idea to make sure of the buyer before sending the product.
3. Avoid financing agreements
Flippaaja.fi urges to avoid financing and debt agreements between unknown persons.
4. Don’t trust the unknown
Flippaaja.fi urges you to hand over / send the product to the buyer only after the payment has been confirmed.
5. Take advantage of technology
Thanks to good communication connections, you have several tools at your disposal to help you secure a buyer. For example, Facetime, Whatsapp, Skype, Google maps, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram services provide the ability to verify that a buyer actually exists.
6. Create a deed of sale to sign
The deed of sale clarifies situation management in the event of possible damage and misuse. It is advisable to attach a certificate of the parties to the transaction and the transaction to the deed of sale. For example, a picture showing the parties' IDs and a receipt / screenshot of the bank transfer.
7. Shop in public and take a friend with you if needed
Never invite strangers into your home. Deals can be made, for example, in a library or café with other people around. If necessary, take another person with you. However, be sure to notify the other party of other persons in advance.
8. Know what you are selling
Make sure your product is what you say it is. If necessary, the authenticity or condition of the watch can be obtained from a professional watchmaker.
