The secondary market for sneakers has never been more volatile. There’s a lack of trust, connection, and transparency involved that has caused buying, selling, and trading sneakers to be a nuisance and a risk. As people who love sneakers, we’re looking to improve that process and level the playing field. That’s why we’re proud to introduce COLLECT by SoleSavy, our marketplace app where you can fairly buy, sell, trade, and (most importantly) connect with other real sneakerheads.
COLLECT is built for people who love sneakers and was designed to put the fun back into buying, selling, and trading sneakers and – putting the consumer first. That means better deals for people who want to wear and collect sneakers, not profit from them. Let’s bring back the days when we didn’t flex about profit, or try to exploit people that missed out on a release.
- COLLECT was built for buyers and sneakerheads
- Every user will have their identity verified with KYC technology
- Buy, sell, and trade all within the app
- No extra fees paid to SoleSavy
As important as connection is, we think it’s equally important to know who you’re transacting with. This is why COLLECT is only available to SoleSavy premium members. We take careful consideration into whom we allow to become a SoleSavy member and we’ve set up Know Your Customer (KYC) identity verification within the app, ensuring you’ll know exactly who you’re transacting with. You’ll no longer be dealing with faceless names on a screen, you’ll be dealing with a fellow member of your online community. Note that the data collected with KYC will not be shared with any other company and will be used strictly to verify member identity. The data lives with our verification partner and never even hits our servers.
COLLECT will be unlike any marketplace out today because of who we built it for. In a world where marketplaces are catering to sellers, we’re putting the consumer and sneakerhead first. You’ll start by creating your profile, you’ll then be prompted to verify your identity, and to set up your payment info. Once you’ve been verified you’ll be able to:
- Upload your sneaker collection
- Explore the collections of other members
- Make offers for sneakers
- Buy/sell/trade sneakers
*Helping members get new sneakers for retail remains one of our top priorities but we understand that buying, selling and trading has always been an important part of sneaker culture and want to provide members with a safe and fair place to get past releases.
We believe a marketplace built for the sneaker community instead of those trying to profit from it is long overdue. SoleSavy will in no way profit off any transaction in COLLECT, allowing our members to maximize value and avoid paying superfluous fees. That’s right, unlike many of the platforms you’re accustomed to, you won’t have to pay a fee to a middle man per transaction for buying, selling, and trading on COLLECT. All experiences on COLLECT come included in your SoleSavy premium membership. The only fee you’ll pay is the standard credit card processing fee, which is an unavoidable expense.
COLLECT is now live for all SoleSavy members and can be accessed through your preferred app store. Join now!
