Although originally founded on the basis of online auctions and purely digital transactions, eBay is increasingly exploring the landscape of in-person events. We recently partnered with eBay to host an evening event at the Kimpton La Pier Hotel in Los Angeles, where guests in attendance had the opportunity to engage with eBay’s unparalleled selection of luxury watches — as well as handbags and jewelry — with top categories for the marketplace.
As luxury goods play an increasing role in items listed on the eBay platform, the marketplace has taken several steps to support buyers and sellers when it comes to high-value transactions. Luxury goods are often counterfeited, and eBay’s Authenticity Assurance service adds extra confidence to protect buyers and sellers of luxury goods such as watches, jewelry and handbags. As it pertains specifically to watches, eBay’s authentication service is available for timepieces valued above $2,000 USD, and by acting as an independent third-party intermediary to authenticate the specific item being sold, both buyer and seller are protected. From an unscrupulous party making false claims about the product’s authenticity or status.
In addition to adding an extra level of security to high-value luxury goods transactions, eBay is also committed to improving the overall experience for those buying and selling premium goods on the platform. One of the ways eBay is doing this is by hosting in-person events that bring eBay’s unparalleled inventory to life, allowing attendees to benefit from eBay’s curated sales, promotions and two-way protection of its authentication services. .
As watch enthusiasts, we all know that the opportunity to experience a timepiece in metal and try it on our wrist is very important. While this is simply not possible when buying a watch online, eBay’s in-person events allow prospective buyers to try on the models they want to buy, then conduct the actual transaction through eBay’s secure digital platform, so shoppers can benefit as well. From the protection of eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee.
Guests at our event with eBay in Los Angeles also received a discount code to help them sweeten the deal on any timepiece they wanted to buy. As many watch lovers sell one piece so they can make room for another, we encourage event attendees to bring timepieces they are interested in moving out of their personal rotations to sell or trade among event attendees.
Apart from watches, other products such as handbags from brands such as Hermès and Louis Vuitton were also on sale, with tequila and Armagnac tastings provided by El Cristiano and Cardinal du Four, who were also at the event. Thanks to the folks at eBay for making it an extra-special and fun evening for everyone. If you missed us this time or couldn’t make it to Los Angeles, keep an eye out for future event announcements and we’ll see you next time!
