You don’t have to pay any commission on eBay if you sell certain sneakers over $ 100 that go through its sneaker authentication program. However, a seller who uses the service noticed that the terms had changed to raise the threshold by $ 150.
As of March 27, 2021, the terms and conditions of the sneaker authentication program stated that sellers selling certain brands, which it listed, qualified for the program if they sold “$ 100 + to the state. new or $ 300 + used, excluding taxes and shipping. “
Terms now state (April 2, 2021) that qualifying sneakers must sell for “$ 150 + new or $ 300 + used, excluding taxes and shipping.”
Sweetnam said, “It’s this kind of unique, cross-category buying opportunity that we intend to translate into more buyers, more opportunities, and more sales for you.”
