eBay Authenticate launched in October as a simple, trusted way for consumers to get paid for their luxury handbags. Now, the service is open to small business sellers who want the ease, security, and earnings that come when expert authenticators take care of everything.
Simply ship your items for free using a prepaid USPS label, or drop them off at a participating FedEx location. Our independent experts will authenticate, list, and sell them for you. We’ll also handle all buyer questions and returns. As a special promotion, you’ll receive 90% of the listing price until January 31, 2018. (After that date, you’ll receive 80% of the listing price.)
Buyers can purchase your luxury handbags with confidence, thanks to each listing’s “Authenticity Verified” label and 200% Money Back Guarantee. Also, they’re already loving the beautiful luxury packaging—see for yourself in this unboxing video or this one.

What items are eligible for eBay Authenticate?
eBay Authenticate is currently available for handbags and wallets from the following luxury brands: Louis Vuitton, Hermès, Chanel, Gucci, Céline, Fendi, Christian Dior, Prada, Goyard, Balenciaga, Valentino, and Burberry (aka “Eligible Brands”). While eBay typically accepts Eligible Brands that are worth $500 or more, you can send in those worth $250 or more for a limited time. We’ll be adding more luxury brands and categories in the upcoming year.
What are my options for sending you my handbag?
Ship us your handbags for free using a prepaid USPS label. You can also bring your handbag to any participating FedEx Office location, and they will pack and ship it to the experts for free.
What happens if the authenticity of my handbag can’t be verified?
Your handbag will be shipped back to you for free.
How will my handbag be priced with eBay Authenticate?
Our independent experts will price your handbag at the higher end of the estimated market value based on the condition and price of similar items sold on eBay.
What happens if my handbag doesn’t sell?
Our independent experts will relist your handbag up to 10 times if needed, each time with a slightly lower price. If your bag hasn’t sold after 60 days, it will be returned to you for free.
What happens if a buyer wants to return my handbag?
We’ll never bother you with returns. Once a buyer purchases your handbag, you receive payment and keep it. If a buyer returns an item, our independent experts will process the return and the handbag becomes their property.
Why should I sell with eBay Authenticate versus on my own?
Buyers can shop with confidence, knowing our independent experts have authenticated each bag. Meanwhile, your job is simple: use free shipping to send us your bags, and let our experts authenticate and sell them for you.
