Introducing Vinted product verification service
Vinted gives clothing and accessories the second life they deserve. The Lithuanian company lets you sell and buy secondhand clothing in a few efficient clicks. This October Vinted announced the roll-out of product verification services for items priced at over 100 euros.
The service is available as an optional add-on for buyers of eligible items for a budget-friendly fee of 10 EUR (this includes the cost of the service and shipping to the verification centre). The items will be verified by Vinted’s dedicated team of verification experts that brings together over five decades of experience and accumulated knowledge about thousands of designer brands. The service is currently available in France, Italy, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands for selected brands and for items listed in adult fashion categories of bags, shoes, accessories, jewellery, and watches above 100 EUR.
Currently, about a hundred brands are qualified for this service, including Bottega Veneta, Céline, Jacquemus, Adidas, and New Balance. Vinted plans to gradually expand its verification capabilities to more brands, markets, and categories.
“We understand that authenticity and trust are paramount in the world of online second-hand shopping and we believe this should be accessible to all. That’s why we’ve worked hard to provide our reliable verification service for designer pieces at an affordable price. Since Vinted was founded 15 years ago, our commitment has always been to make second-hand fashion the first choice for everyone and we see this new service being a significant step forward in our ambition to provide our community with the utmost confidence.” says Adam Jay, CEO of Vinted marketplace.
