Shipping and packaging

Make it an easy process

Receive discounted shipping services by using eBay Labels and get items to your buyer smoothly by shipping them to our authentication facility. Proper shipping ensures a smooth authentication process.

  • Pack the item with bubble wrap or tissue paper to ensure a tight fit in the box and to avoid damages.
  • Ensure that all relevant information is on your shipping label. If you use eBay Labels, everything—including the unique code that allows the authenticator to process orders smoothly—is included. If you create your own shipping labels, be sure to include the code on the third line as shown in the example.
  • Only include items in the original listing as sold, no extra merchandise.
  • Ship to the authenticator address indicated within View Order Details/eBay orders from My eBay and not directly to the customer.

How the authentication facility ships and packs

  • 1

    The authentication team receives the watch and any collateral materials, including but not limited to box and papers, and confirms that the item is consistent with the listing title, description, and images.

  • 2

    The authentication team performs a multi-point physical authentication inspection.

  • 3

    A security tag is attached to the watch and is then carefully packaged with eBay-branded boxes and a unique NFC-enabled authentication card filled with detailed information about the item.

  • 4

    The watch is shipped to the buyer via expedited FedEx tracked shipping with secure, signature-required delivery.
