eBay has transformed a gas station in East Hollywood into a drive-thru Authentication Station. This option lets customers estimate and sell their sneakers, watches, and collectibles, without leaving the car. It is to keep the socially distanced merchant according to the pandemic conditions.

This first-of-its-kind Authenticatication Station launches along with eBay’s Authenticity Guarantee, which allows people to buy and sell on the marketplace.

Authenticity Guarantee work with autonomous experts for full verification pieces with extensive inspections. It is available for sneakers and watches now. These are the most popular luxury categories in the marketplace.

The community response to authentication on eBay has been incredible, and we wanted to find a way to really bring this to life ahead of the holiday shopping season, eBay’s first Authentication Station gives attendees a look under the hood, and follows a simple formula: Get your item evaluated by experts, find out what it’s worth and fill up your pockets, all while staying in your car

Sneaker Con, the third-party authentication partner, will estimate the worth of every item on the marketplace.

We’ve reported that Metro Bank has opened its 76th store in Cardiff on Newport Road, bringing Wales its first drive-thru banking experience.
