No. Selling counterfeit or stolen items is illegal and strictly prohibited on Reetzy.

Listings for stolen or counterfeit items will be deleted, and any accounts associated with these listings or activities will be suspended or banned immediately. Further action, including criminal prosecution, may be taken.

What do we mean by “counterfeit items”? Any item including a design or mark that is identical to or substantially indistinguishable from a registered trademark but not manufactured by or with the consent of the trademark holder is considered “counterfeit.” In compliance with the U.S. law as well as the core value of original design that Reetzy believes in, we take this issue very seriously, and will take actions above and beyond to maintain Reetzy as a trustworthy and anti-counterfeit marketplace.

Are you not sure if your item is a counterfeit? We encourage you to ask your group members. A lot of the members are knowledgeable when it comes to authenticating those brand items. Try asking members for their opinions with your detailed photos, and don’t forget to be courteous and polite when doing so!
