eBay Launches eBay Authenticate Boosting Shopper Confidence

eBay Authenticate Expansion Programme to Include Additional Brands and Categories Planned in 2018

Today, eBay launched eBay Authenticate, a white glove authentication service designed to help the marketplace’s hundreds of millions of active buyers shop with confidence for luxury handbags.

eBay sellers can now utilise the service to list luxury handbags and wallets valued at $500+/£376+ and receive 80% of the final selling price when selling luxury handbags from 12 high-end brands, including Balenciaga, Burberry, Céline, Chanel, Christian Dior, Fendi, Goyard, Gucci, Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Valentino. For a limited time, the service will accept luxury handbags valued at $250+/£188+ and sellers will receive 90% of the final sale price.

For eBay buyers, they can shop more confidently for luxury handbags knowing that items marked with an “Authenticity Verified” label are backed by a 200% Money Back Guarantee.

“We’re making it even easier for our buyers to shop quickly and confidently for luxury handbags. With tens-of-thousands of high-end handbags currently available, eBay is primed to boost customer confidence in selling and shopping for an amazing selection of designer merchandise. We also believe our sellers will love this service, as it provides them with a white-glove service when selling luxury handbags. We’re looking forward to expanding this programme to other brands and categories next year,” said Laura Chambers, Vice President of Consumer Selling at eBay.

Over the past 20 years, eBay has devoted resources to setting the standard for operating a trusted and safe marketplace. For nearly ten years, eBay’s best-in-class Verified Rights Owner (VeRO) programme has allowed more than 40,000 rights owners to quickly report possible counterfeit goods. This programme simply helps eBay buyers have more confidence in the wealth of inventory on the marketplace – and enables our sellers to benefit from that confidence. Additionally, eBay’s prior collaborations with the CFDA for “You Can’t Fake Fashion,” have celebrated original design and raised awareness about our commitment to authentic fashion
