eBay Launches Authentication for Luxury Handbags

As the marketplace's luxury categories continue to gain momentum with recent quarter over quarter growth, eBay announces the expansion of its Authenticity Guarantee service to include handbags. Beginning today, new and pre-owned handbags sold for more than $500 from 16 prominent luxury brands, including Saint Laurent, Gucci, Celine, Balenciaga, among others, will be professionally authenticated. The announcement builds on eBay's authentication program, which initially launched with luxury watches $2,000+ and was fast followed by sneakers $100+ in late 2020.

"Authenticity Guarantee has changed the way people buy and sell luxury items on eBay," said Charis Márquez, VP of Fashion at eBay. "There's a handbag bought every 12 seconds on our marketplace, and now we're expanding authentication to deliver an additional layer of trust and confidence for these shoppers and sellers."

All eligible handbags bought and sold in the U.S. will be vetted and verified by eBay's team of professionally trained authenticators, using detailed physical inspection and advanced technical equipment in a state-of-the-art facility. Shoppers can visit eBay.com/authentichandbags to browse and buy from a selection of tens of thousands of new and pre-owned handbags from in-demand designers – all marked with a badge of Authenticity Guarantee.

Authenticity Guarantee for Handbags:
 How It Works
When a handbag purchase is made, the seller ships it directly to eBay's team of professionally trained authenticators for a comprehensive, multi-point physical inspection, ensuring that the item and collateral materials are consistent with the listing title, description, and image. Following this rigorous assessment, the handbag is sent via expedited shipping to the buyer, at no-fee to the seller or buyer. Details on the handbags authentication process include:

Thorough Inspection: eBay's authenticators inspect the general quality of materials and serialization, and use magnification and measurement to inspect the brand logo, hardware, chains, zippers, and snaps, analyzing the engraving and ensuring the stitching is uniform.

Proof of Authentication: An eBay security tag, and unique Authenticity Guarantee card filled with detailed information and details about the item such as brand and model to guarantee its authenticity, is then attached to the bag to finalize the process, reaffirming confidence in collectability and resale value.

Verified Returns: For sellers who choose to offer returns, eBay's handbag authentication program ensures the exact item initially sold is returned to the seller, via a verified returns process. Returns are shipped back directly to the authentication center, where authentication experts verify each item and its condition before returning to the seller.

Eligible Brands: Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci, Hermès, Saint Laurent, Celine, Dior, Prada, Fendi, Goyard, Burberry, Chloe, Valentino, Givenchy, Balenciaga, and Bottega Veneta
