eBay Adds a New Feature
eBay is known to be the king when it comes down to buying, selling, and even reselling online. The e-commerce consumer is making it even easier to sell your designer and limited-edition sneakers online. Not only that, but they’re making it easier to purchase a pair of these sneakers without having to worry whether or not they’re indeed authentic.
When shopping online, it’s common for people to open their package and discover that it’s not an authentic product, but instead, a dupe. This is most common with luxury or designer brands, especially when it comes to sneakers.
eBay is now saying “goodbye” to fraudulent purchases as they add their new feature, which is the eBay Authenticity Guarantee for sneakers.
What Does the New Feature Entail
The authenticators for the sneakers will verify the box, along with the sizing labels, the stitching, soles, logos, laces, heel tabs, and more. Once the pair of sneakers is authenticated, the left sneaker will be tagged with a unique NFC-enabled tab that provides thorough and detailed information regarding the pair’s authenticity.
There’s no additional fee for sellers or buyers to have their designer sneakers authenticated through eBay’s experts. The company also covers the cost of three-day shipping from their authenticators to the buyer.
To qualify for use of eBay’s new feature, the shoes have to be sold for at least $150 and be shipped to an address in the U.S. and they can’t be a customized pair.
