Selling and Buying sneakers online is now made a lot easier with the newly launched Sneaker Marketplace in South Africa. Named Sneaker Spaza, the site allows consumers to Buy – Sell – Trade Authentic Sneakers on the secondary market, space where Re-sellers and Buyers connect anonymously.
Unlike other platforms where you buy products and not being sure if that they’re legit, Sneaker Spaza serves as a middleman that provides various services from Authenticating a sneaker to ensure the product that is sold is 100% Authentic and also handles shipping to the buyer.
As a buyer on Sneaker Spaza, you don’t know who is selling you the sneakers, but you know two basic things: the price and that the sneakers will be authenticated.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Seller sends product information which includes: Sneaker Name, Size, Condition, and the Price to Sneaker Spaza.
If the listing is approved, the sneaker gets listed on www.sneakerspaza.co.za
When the buyer makes a purchase, the seller ships the pair to Sneaker Spaza to verify the legitimacy of the shoe and sends the shoe along to the seller.
Authentication takes place when the process is successful – the buyer is paid and the sneaker is shipped to the buyer.
Launched in late June 2016, now Sneaker Spaza has over 50 Pairs of sneakers listed, including brands like Nike, Air Jordan, Adidas and some of the available sneakers includes 2016 Air Jordans and Adidas NMD’s. Sneaker Spaza allows unworn and worn good condition ( original boxed) sneakers.
“We brought to life this platform soon after we introduced the Sneaker section (yomzansi sneakers) on yomzansi.com, which provides users with latest sneaker news, release dates and restocks. With a flood of DM’s and emails we used to receive each day from people looking to resell and to buy sneakers, we saw a gap for such a platform in South Africa and with the internet experience we carry for over 10 years of developing Innovative Ideas this was easier for us.” said founder of YoMzansi
