Reviews from our community of buyers


Thanks to this service, we are sure to buy an original item and not a counterfeit. The price remains reasonable and the service is very fast!


When I bought a Prada bag with authenticity verification, I was relaxed because I knew that, in case the bag hadn't been authentic, I would have been 'protected' by this service. Luckily, it's authentic. I was really happy.


I get the benefit that I can keep my money safe until the item passes the verification check.


I don't have to worry about buying a fake item. And I can be completely sure that everything will be taken care of, including shipping the item to me.


I bought a bag through the system and it was automatically sent to the verification location before it was delivered to me. I received a tracking number so I could see where the bag was at any time.
