Sneaker collectors want to be sure that they're actually getting genuine versions of the products they pay for, so eBay is teaming up with SneakerCon to introduce a brand-new sneaker authentication service. The new program is officially launching for all new and pre-owned sneakers sold on the platform, currently, this includes sneakers that cost $100 in the US and this may be expanded in the future.
With this program, a team of experts will be put to work to make sure that shoppers are getting what they order. Officially authenticated items will receive an eBay hangtag, and the process will also be applied to shoppers who choose to make a return so that sellers will receive their authenticated sneakers in the original condition.
