Since November 2020, eBay has revolutionized the sneaker after-market with its Authenticity Guarantee program. And while countless buyers have enjoyed the trusted service, the online institution has been hard at work to spread the third-party authentication process beyond the United States of America. Most recently, the program has launched in Canada.

For the uninitiated, the eBay Authenticity Guarantee service works as follows: Select new sneakers priced over $100 CAD purchased via the resale platform are sent to a team of independently trained authenticators that meticulously inspect the items at no extra cost to buyers or sellers. Once a product passes the extensive, multi-point authentication process, an NFC-enabled tag is attached to it; when scanned, the tag summons eBay’s authenticity report and custom sneaker details for the pair in question. Items are then shipped to their buyers, who’re given a sense of protection and security unlike ever before.

Welcome to the party, Canada. You can start shopping for the newest YEEZY and Nike styles and/or Air Jordan and adidas shoes that haven’t been retroed yet with the protection of the eBay Authenticity Guarantee program right now. Because eBay offers an unrivaled variety of options, you can also find thousands of sneakers from other brands too.
