eBay Expands Trading Card Authentication To Canada
eBay has announced Authenticity Guaranteed for Trading Cards is now available in Canada for single ungraded cards over $250.
eBay Canada is pleased to announce the launch of our Authenticity Guarantee for trading cards, helping both buyers and sellers transact with confidence.
Single, ungraded trading cards sold in Canada for over $250 will now be verified by our partners at CGC and CSG in our new Canadian authentication facility, at no additional cost to either the buyer or seller.
- List your eligible card and the blue Authenticity Guarantee badge will appear.
- Once a buyer purchases your card, you’ll ship it to our Canada-based authentication facility for inspection.
- Your card goes through a multi-point inspection process performed by CGC or CSG. The card is also checked against listing details before being packaged. Cards are not graded.
- Your card is slipped into a larger penny sleeve and sealed with an authentication sticker. A QR code linking to authentication details is provided. It's then placed into a padfolio and delivered safely to the buyer via discreet and secure tracked shipping.
If you allow returns and a buyer wishes to return, the card will be reinspected on the way back, protecting both buyers and sellers.
As always, check the full terms and conditions carefully:
