WHAT IS STOCKX?

Dubbed the world’s first “Stock Market of Things,” StockX has quickly become streetwear’s favorite online marketplace for the buying and selling of streetwear, trading cards, collectibles, designer handbags, clothing, and everything in between. Brands like Adidas, Yeezy, Jordan, Supreme, Teflar, Nvidia, and BAPE are longstanding staples of the marketplace.

HOW DOES STOCKX WORK?

In the StockX ecosystem, you are either a buyer or seller. As a live marketplace, the retailer operates similarly to the stock market — the current market demand determines the price of the products featured on the site. StockX does not determine the price. Shoppers are able to bid and buy items at real-time prices. As an individual or business, you can sell products on StockX.

CAN YOU TRUST STOCKX?

Products are bought and sold all over the world. Every item sold goes through our proprietary multi-step verification process with our team of expert authenticators.

Founder Josh Luber explains how he made sneaker authenticating a real career path.

Thanks to $110 million in funding from investment firms DST Global, General Atlantic, and GGV Capital, StockX is now valued at over $1 billion, surpassing a $1 billion annual GMV run rate in less than three years.

In another reminder of how insanely big the sneaker resale market has become, StockX has announced the appointment of its first-ever Chief Financial Officer. John Kaelle comes to the company after serving as the CFO of both Mesophere and Marin Software.

StockX announced that it’s opening its first permanent physical store later this year. The brick-and-mortar StockX location will be in New York at 237 Lafayette Street and follows a series of “drop-off” pop-up locations in New York, Los Angeles, and London.

2020

StockX announces Series E funding round that has raised $275 million, valuing the resale platform at an astounding $2.8 billion. The total funds raised now amount to $490 million.

StockX remains open during COVID-19 because the resell market is still strong.

You can now buy and sell NFTs on StockX. The move is not surprising, considering StockX has been at the forefront of the resale business since its inception and is always looking for new categories to add to its existing portfolio. However, Nike is not too happy about that decision.
