eBay Auction Consignment
How it Works
Why consign your antique book(s) with Regency Antique Books? As a top-rated eBay seller, we take time and great care in presenting professional quality listings for all of our items, and will extend the same service to you to give your antique book the best opportunity to achieve its fair market value.
We love the eBay auction experience, both for buyers and for sellers, and have found it to be one of the best formats for selling books.
Our Consignment Fees
Our consignment fee is 25% of the final auction price. Most auction listings will be live within 48 hours of receipt of your book(s). Our consignment fee includes professional-quality photos and a customized auction listing, services that are typically charged at an additional fee with large auction houses.
