Sneakerheads have a new home on the internet: eBay. It’s all thanks to the shopping giant’s new Authenticity Guarantee – a service designed to protect sellers and allow buyers to shop with confidence. So, whether buying and selling sneakers is your passion, hobby, or business, here’s why you need to check out eBay.

The Authenticity Guarantee service for sneakers means that when you sell a pair of sneakers on eBay instead of sending them directly to the buyer, you’ll ship them to a vetted third-party authenticator. 

The authenticator will then carefully inspect the sneakers for authenticity and accuracy against the item listing, and, upon confirmation that everything is present and correct, they are re-packaged and securely shipped to the buyer. 

If the authenticity of the sneakers cannot be verified or they are significantly not as described, they are returned to the seller and a refund is issued.

Best of all, this service is completely free to the sellers and buyers.

It’s worth noting, though, that in order to be eligible for the Authenticity Guarantee service several conditions must be met.

First of all, they have to be from a premium brand. Think Yeezy, Nike, Adidas, Balenciaga, Gucci, and Off-White, to name just a few. The sneakers must also cost over $100 in new condition or $150 if pre-owned.

When buying sneakers, it’s important to check listings for the “Authenticity Guarantee” blue checkmark badge – don’t just assume they’re included in the scheme.
