How can I tell if an item has been authenticated by our partner?
All luxury items with InstantBuy are authenticated by our luxury trusted sellers. You can identify these listings with the tag below.
When you receive the item, it should come with a tag to prove that your package is not tampered with and/ or swapped during delivery.
What happens if I think I receive an inauthentic item?
If you believe that your item purchased with InstantBuy is not authentic, you may raise a return request using the reason “Item is not authentic” within the 7-day return period. To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition and packaging as you received it. The Carousell tag on the item should be intact and not damaged.
Please include photos and remarks to help validate your claim by taking clear photos of the following:
- Serial numbers
- Brand logo including placement of the logo on the item
- Tags and position of their tags
- Design to show where and/or how the design differs from the original, if possible
You will be required to provide certified proof that the item is not authentic from the brand owners, authorised in-house authenticators or software like Entrupy, to support the claim. Once we have received the proof from you, our support team will arrange a return pick up from your doorstep to return the item back to the seller. Otherwise, your return request may be cancelled.
Once the seller has received the returned item and completed the evaluation, the seller can click “Item Returned” and your refund will be processed.
