Trust The Process

Our global team of experts uses a rigorous, multi-step verification process.


We only allow deadstock on our marketplace. That means every item bought or sold must be brand new and never worn.


From the full list of accessories to all the additional add-ons, rest assured that your purchase on StockX will match any retail purchase experience.


Equally important as the product itself, our team ensures packaging meets the highest quality standards to deliver a brand new product.

Hear From Our Team

In a community filled with inauthentic items, I have the opportunity to protect our customers and their hard-earned money.


Authenticator, Veldhoven

I have the privilege of teaching a new generation of authenticators, to help them succeed, and watch them grow. It’s fulfilling to see.


Authenticator, Tempe

I am the second set of eyes reviewing packages before they ship out to customers. I take pride and care in ensuring our customers have a perfect unboxing experience.


Quality Assurance, Detroit

I authenticate every item as if it was going to a collector. I have a skillset that not many people have, and it’s my responsibility to provide the best service possible.


Authenticator, Detroit

Committed to Quality

Over the years, our team members have authenticated tens of millions of products.

We’ve compiled data from every product we’ve verified on StockX to build a database of elements that don’t meet our standards. Our database is updated daily and constantly serves to keep our team educated and up to date.

Fighting Counterfeits

Like it or not, counterfeits are a problem for current culture goods on the secondary market. The quality of fake items has increased, as has the quantity of unauthorized items (often made in the same factory as the real items).

StockX has always been committed to fighting counterfeits and fraud on our platform. We remain one of the few marketplaces committed to physically reviewing 100% of the items that pass through our platform.

Our efforts have led to rejecting over 1.4 million items valued over $400 million.

StockX will continue to invest in the people, processes, and technology to stay ahead of the fraudsters so we can improve the purchase experience for our customers.


Behind The Scenes

Our authenticators share a deep love and knowledge for the products and culture around our marketplace.
