SAFEFUNDS Item Verification
Item verification is a separate service available to
Safefunds members and provided by the Safefunds Logistics
This service provides an additional layer of buyer and
seller protection when the transaction is of high value
and subject to imitation or fraudulent representation.
Typical items are designer goods, watches, jewelry,
antiques, and collectibles.
Item verification service protects the seller from sending
an item to the buyer with return allowed and having the
buyer keep the original item and substitute a replacement
or “knockoff” imitation in the return.
Item verification service protects the buyer from the
seller sending a “knock off” or a misrepresentation
and claiming the item returned is not the original item
sent to the buyer.
Here is how the Safefunds Item Verification Service
1. The seller ships to SAFEFUNDS.
2. SAFEFUNDS verifies the item, creates a unique identification
record for the item, and ships the item on to the buyer.
3. If the buyer is not satisfied and returns the item
as a condition of the sale; or claims fraudulent representation
and starts a dispute, the item is returned to SAFEFUNDS.
4. SAFEFUNDS verifies the item is the exact item originally
sent. If the seller has allowed returns and the item
is the exact one sent, it is returned to the seller and
the money is released back to the buyer in the normal
course of the transaction. If the item is not the one
sent to the buyer, the item is returned to the buyer
and the funds are released to the seller. If a dispute
arises over the item's representation, Safefunds can
verify the original item's authenticity.
Both Buyer and Seller are fully protected.
