3) We utilize a second party verification platform which uses technology such as AI to read patterns/verify date codes and model #'s on certain pieces.
Following the same routine for each item eliminates the guesswork oftentimes done at second-hand stores. Many items (Hermés, Louis Vuitton,Gucci, etc fall under the category of highly counterfeited items)
We take authenticity extremely serious! Here at SHOPUBBI there is a penalty for submission of counterfeit items. Items submitted/dropped off by individuals that are later deemed counterfeit through our authentication process will be charged a $50 fee as well as blacklisted for further consignment submissions.
We will not ship the item back to you-upon payment of the fee it will have to be picked up at one of our locations. Multiple checks are in place to prevent counterfeit goods from circulating in general + on SHOPUBBI.
Our respect for the brands we carry is why we have designed such a strict policy regarding authentication. Resale contributes to the prestige and desire for high end brands if counterfeits can be stopped.
