STEP 1: Offer creation
You can create a trade or receive an offer from another Tradeblock member.
*Before accepting or creating a trade, thoroughly and carefully inspect your shoes, even if they are brand new and have never been taken out of the box. Note any possible issues or factory defects in your shoe listing as these are referenced during the validation process.
STEP 2: Offer decision
You can accept, reject, or counter an offer.
Counter allows you to change the offer, whether it’s the shoes and/or the cash involved. Your counter offer won’t be sent until you confirm the new offer by selecting “Send Counter”.
STEP 3: Payment
As a proposer, you’ll review pricing and enter your payment and shipping details before sending an offer. If the other member accepts, you will be
charged and expected to follow through with the trade. Once accepted, offers are binding.
Do not send offers you're not willing to commit to. If you back out or refuse to ship after your trade is accepted, you will not be refunded.
As a receiver when you accept an offer, you’ll review pricing and enter your payment and shipping details to confirm the trade. The trade will move directly to processing in your trade inbox.
*Any additional cash in a deal will not be charged until both shoes are authenticated.
STEP 4: Shipment
When both parties have confirmed the trade, you each will receive a UPS shipping label that you’ll use to send your sneakers to one of our authentication centers for inspection. You will have 72 hours to ship your shoes. If the 72 hours is set to expire on a Sunday or major holiday when UPS is closed, you are allowed to ship the following morning before the trade is officially canceled. If you’re trading multiple sneakers, please ship them all in a single box.
STEP 5: Authentication and Quality Control
Ensuring authenticity is our top priority. Our team of expert authenticators thoroughly inspect every single product that comes through our facility. The physical inspection includes, but is not limited to, examining the material, structure, stitching, color, tags and labeling of every item. Since we allow both new and used products on Tradeblock, our team ensures that the condition, packaging and accessories of each product are consistent with its listing in the app by comparing the physical product to the images and notes posted to ensure each member is receives what they were expecting.
