Opinion of Authenticity
One of the greatest challenges facing today's online buyers and sellers is ascertaining the genuineness of items being sold on the internet.
Sellers who provide an Opinion of Authenticity in their auction listings show their commitment to honest and sincere dealings. Reduced fear of fraud and increased bid strength will signal confidence to buyers and help to protect your reputation and integrity.
Buyers can avoid the pain of trying to get their money back-after they have already purchased the item only to find it is a fake.
Dispute Resolution- Our Opinion of Authenticity is widely used as a tool to help resolve disputes between buyers and sellers.
This inexpensive service helps instill trust in the marketplace and provides a direct link to one of our third-party unbiased experts who will give their opinion about the authenticity of the item in question.
When you request an Opinion of Authenticity from one of our experts, you will receive one of the three following answers:
1) 'This item is probably authentic' ---and the reason for the expert's opinion.
2) 'This item is probably not authentic' ---and the reason for the expert's opinion.
3) 'This item is definitely not authentic' ---and the reason for the expert's opinion.
Please understand that this service is not designed to be a guarantee of authenticity or genuineness of an item. Proving the authenticity of an item can be a very difficult task, especially via the internet. Specialists and appraisers all agree that in order to have proof-positive of the genuineness of an item it must be seen in person.
On the other side of that coin, an expert is usually able to spot a fake by examining high quality images via the web.
In order to access this service you must agree to our Authenticity Understanding
To request an Opinion of Authenticity you will be required to have a minimum of 3 clear, high quality images of the item in question. The expert may also request further images and/or information from you in order to make their judgment and provide their opinion.
You will be presented your Opinion of Authenticity in a digital certificate format which you can print, link from an auction listing, email to a friend or email to help resolve a dispute.
