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.
