How do you know if that beautiful Chanel bag on eBay is the real deal? There are lots of shysters out there and Chanel is popular. Chanel knock offs are a dime a dozen. Whether you’re looking for a Chanel purse, Chanel make-up or perfume, a pair of Chanel sunglasses, shoes or a beautiful Chanel belt, here’s a guide to buying Chanel on eBay.
Buy Chanel with Confidence
Know Your Chanel Products
• Read item details carefully when looking for Chanel products.
• Make sure the Chanel product actually exists! Visit Chanel’s official site and check Chanel products, descriptions and details carefully. Make sure the Chanel product on eBay is identical.
• A new Chanel bag that retails for $1000.00 but is being sold on eBay for $50.00 is probably a fake.
• Make sure you’re buying an ‘authentic’ Chanel product. Don’t buy if the Chanel seller doesn’t mention authenticity.
• Pictures posted on eBay shouldn’t be stock Chanel photos. Pictures should be of the actual Chanel product itself.
• Figure delivery costs into your Chanel product’s final price. If you’re spending a lot on your Chanel the seller should insure it when it ships.
• Ask for information about the Chanel being sold by clicking the "Ask seller a question" link under the seller's profile.
• Always complete your Chanel transaction on eBay (with a bid, Buy It Now, or Best Offer). If you buy your Chanel product outside of eBay it won’t be covered by eBay protection programs.
• Never pay for your Chanel product using instant cash wire transfer services through Western Union or MoneyGram.
