eBay Authenticity Guarantee for watches

In September 2021 eBay launched what is possibly their most powerful selling feature ever – the eBay Authenticity Guarantee ✅. This brilliant new innovation means shoppers can purchase high end luxury watches (currently £2,000 or more) from eligible sellers with the confidence that it is a 100% genuine – GUARANTEED.

Third Party Testing to prove authenticity

All products bought under this new scheme are sent from the seller to a third party testing house. These professional watch authenticators perform all the necessary tests to confirm it’s the genuine item. Once satisifed, the watch is sent to the customer with a certificate of authenticity – EASY 😊

What does it mean?

It means that scammers can’t sell fake watches on eBay anymore. It means shoppers can confidently purchase luxury items. This only applies to items showing the “Authenticity Guarantee” of course. Naturally there will still be fraudsters selling fake watches and other counterfeit goods, but shoppers can avoid them by buying only from participating sellers.

In short – if you buy a luxury brand watch from a seller NOT covered under the Authenticity Guarantee – you have to accept some level of risk. So why bother – look for the BLUE TICK and shop with confidence.
