How Legitmark Authentication Works on COLLECT

Devin Robertson

SoleSavy x Legitmark Join Forces

For months, our members have enjoyed our retail-or-less marketplace COLLECT, where they can buy, sell and trade sneakers without fees. Now, COLLECT is open to the public with the lowest fees in the industry. Thousands of completed transactions later, we’ve seen that our identity verification process is effective in preventing fraud. But if you’re offering cash on higher-value items, or trading with someone for the first time, authentication can be helpful to give you peace of mind. This is why we’ve partnered with industry leader Legitmark to power authentication on COLLECT.

Legitmark has built a suite of digital authentication tools, providing objective assessments for collectors and traders. They aim to be the default service layer for the secondary market by offering independent authentication for highly valued items such as sneakers, collectibles, and luxury.

Why We Partnered w/ Legitmark

Establishing itself as the go-to for sneaker authentication, Legitmark has earned the trust of over 80,000 collectors and traders who have relied on their services to verify over $7M USD worth of sneakers. Their distinct approach, combining objective analysis with expert authenticators, guarantees a thorough and accurate evaluation of each item.

Sneaker authentication requires a level of precision and attention to detail that sets the bar high. Legitmark exceeds expectations with their bespoke evaluation process, delivering precise results consistently. Their use of advanced data and a dedicated team of experts allows them to continually raise the bar on accuracy, making them the trusted choice for discerning collectors and traders.

How do I authenticate my sneakers in COLLECT?

In an effort to build a safer sneaker marketplace, Legitmark authentication can now be initiated directly in app.

Here’s how it works:

  • Tap ‘Launch Legitmark’ in your COLLECT listing to open the Legitmark app. (10% discount automatically applied for COLLECT users). 
  • Find the sneaker you’re looking to authenticate.
  • Follow the step-by-step guide in order to capture the correct photos and angles.
  • Sit back and let Legitmark do the work. You’ll receive a confirmation email of your order.
  • If any additional photos are required, Legitmark will reach out for additional images.
  • Get Your Certificated ID back in as little as 12 hours.

Once authenticated on Legitmark, you will receive a ‘Certificate ID’ that you can add to your COLLECT listing. The best part about this feature is that ID will transfer ownership if you choose to sell or trade your sneaker.

Our retail-or-less pricing policy means that most listings on COLLECT are low risk for fraud. We chose to make authentication optional to save collectors time and money on the majority of your purchases. However, we do recommend using the feature when dealing with higher-ticket items for that extra peace of mind.

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
