MATCH. AUTHENTICATE. SHIP.
House of Trade is a modern trading platform for sneakers and luxury goods. The platform allows users to trade their "closet currency" (i.e., sneakers) with other users for these luxury items that might be hard to find elsewhere. In today's economy, when financial resources are limited, and safety is top of mind, this platform facilitates the exchange of goods in a safe, secure and efficient manner.
House of Trade sits at the intersection of commerce, culture, and community. We are minority-led (Chris Holloway) and women-led (Keren Nimmo) company that serves an ethnically and gender diverse community.
HOW IT WORKS
Simple, Easy and Reliable.
Create an account and upload your sneakers. Your safety is top of mind, your account will remain anonymous so other users won't be able to link a sneaker to an actual user.
Browse our sneaker collection and find the sneakers you want. All trades need to be accepted by the both parties so there is no risk in uploading sneakers.
Each trade is $30/ sneaker which includes authentication.
If the trade is accepted, you will pay and ship your shoes to our warehouse. We will have a certified authenticator verify the authenticity of the sneakers. Each shipment will include an authenticity certification.
We will provide you with a shipping label via email. You will ship your sneakers to our warehouse. After authentication, we will then ship your sneakers to the designated recipient.
/Per Pair of Sneakers
You don't pay until a trade is accepted by both parties. Once a trade is accepted by both parties, each Trader pays a $30 transaction fee (excludes shipping costs). Each Trader will ship their respective sneakers to our centralized warehouse where we authenticate each sneaker and ensure complete trades are received. If there is a problem with the authenticity of the shoe or the other sneakers are not received, we will refund your money.
