eBay announced the first announcement today (October 12, local time), foreign media reported
In fact, for years, eBay has been notorious for allowing the sale of problematic products. Because eBay is the first and largest of its kind, they often make mistakes in finding the best way to achieve specific goals by rules, regulations, and technology.
Now, eBay's new sneaker certification program shows a good sign. For collectors and investors, sneakers seem to be an inexhaustible source of interest and value, and eBay hopes to take this opportunity to upgrade itself.
The service will be launched in partnership with sneakercon this month. During the certification process, sneakercon certification personnel will use a comprehensive product specification list to confirm the legitimacy and quality of products. The eBay certification system confirms the consistency of each product list, performs physical checks, and attaches a special eBay tag to the certification.
This process is bidirectional. If the seller decides to return the goods, the returned goods must also be certified by the certification center to ensure that the returned goods are intact.
Although this is the first time that a sneaker has been certified on eBay, the auction company has recently actually launched a similar watch certification program. In September, eBay launched a certification service for all watches over $2000.
