    Of course you can find authentic bags on eBay. But of course you have to be careful and know what to look for. (red flag: price difference. chances are it's a fake with that big of a price difference)

    You can find authentic ones there. The more common styles are obviously going to be easier to find. Limited edition stuff, a bit more difficult. Definitely agree with Jennifer, a rare bag at a ridiculously low price is not going to be authentic.

    Usually, I buy bags from listings that say something along the line "authentic" or "genuine" but lately, that rule does not work anymore

    As a newbie to designer anything, I would love to see pics of real AND fake to be able to compare.
    Then I could learn as I go!
    Or even if the people could describe what it is that is "off".
    Just my 2 cents!!!

    If I send a picture, can you authenticate a bag for me. It is the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM. I have to take a picture of it and can send it tomorrow. It was a gift, is new and really beautiful. It is huge! I love it for work and play!

    So, if I were to sell a authentic Prada bag, where is the best place to sell if Ebay is no good? Thanks!

    I dont think that we should use price to gauge if a bag sold in ebay is authentic.
    If that is the case then wont sellers try to sell their unauthentic bags at a few thousand dollars?

    We don't use price only as a means to say if a bag is a replica, however, if a limited edition bag that was regularly $2k is selling for $500, then more than likely it will be a fake because limited edition bags usually sell for around 20% more than retail on eBay. We use price as a jumping off point on some bags because if the price seems off then the bag might be off as well.

    Yup I agree. If i buy a 2nd hand bag and already in worn out condition is a low price reasonable?

    Of course. Price is based on the items condition, how much it was selling for when it was new, and it's value compared to others like it out there. You want to do your research and make sure you're getting a good deal for a good bag. You don't want to overpay.

    But when you tell people you bought the LV at a low price people will say its unauthentic without considering the condition you bought it at

    Again, price has nothing to do with authenticity, but we use it when we see a bag that seems off in price to check it's authenticity on sites like eBay. Here is a prime example:
    LOUIS VUITTON "GLOBE SHOPPER" TOTE | eBay

    The bag is listed for $299. It is a limited edition bag that originally retailed for $1280 in 2006. The price is too low which is a reason to look at it twice and to inspect to see why the price is so low. It's a replica.

    You don't need to tell anyone how much you paid for a bag, that's your business. Besides if you have an authentic bag does it matter if someone else thinks it's a replica?

    This is obviously a fake but I don't think that anything to do with price because this was a starting price -- so the seller might just start low thinking it will go higher....
