I've been asking around and I can't find one person that has actually ordered from them, but I've been reading that it is legit???? Has anyone actually ordered from there???

it's like ebay.  Just have to make sure you use paypal so you're protected if you buy a fake.

Just in case someone wants to take a chance on limited foams.  I purchased both in a size 12 and will find out if they're 100% authentic.

ok, I will.  FYI, i bought a pair of galaxy foams for $1,300 from a seller on the NikeTalk group on Facebook and used paypal.  The foams seemed real but looked like they were resoled.  I sent them back and paypal reimbursed me in full.  Just make sure you don't gift money on paypal because you won't get the paypal protection.

Ok thanks man, how exactly do you gift the money? That way I won't do it. I usually use PayPal on legit big company websites, I've only bought one pair from eBay and that's it.

When you pay through a website, it always goes to paying for goods and services.  Sometimes sellers who will try to sell on the side send an invoice with a 4% discount if you pay as a gift (you have to click the gifting to family and friends option) is a trick.  A seller will charge you 4% more if you pay through paypal as a good or service because that's the fee they get charged by paypal.  Trust me, the protection is worth the 4% charge up.  Not everyone charges you more but some sellers try tricking buyers by offering a discount if you gift the money.  Remember, there is no paypal buyer protection when sending money as a gift.  Make sure to always take screenshots of what you're purchasing and save conversations that you have online with the buyer.  Always make sure the seller writes that the shoes are 100% authenticate and has everything included.  You might get stuck with something you didn't want if there is something that is missing in the description and you didn't ask the seller to clarify.  Keep records and proof of everything just in case paypal asks for it for their investigation.  I buy and sell on ebay all the time.  The key is to always do your legit checks and check the sellers feedback.  I always take the shoes I purchase from ebay and do a legit check at my local foot locker or sneaker shop.  If they end up being fakes, you just file a dispute with paypal and they walk you through everything.

Ok thanks that is very helpful, so I should only gift the item if they provide a detailed invoice with that 4% mark up?

post #10 of 60

sorry, I think I confused you.  Don't "gift" money under any circumstance unless the person is an actual family member or friend. It doesn't matter how detailed the invoice is.  If you gift, there is no paypal protection.  You should always pay as a "good or service" unless it's someone you know and trust.

 

The 4% discount I was talking about is when a seller says that they'll give you a discount if you gift.  Don't take the bait.  They'll usually charge you 4% extra if you pay as a "good or service" but it's much better because you're safe if they end up being fakes.

I just got a refund from them when I asked if they sent my foams. It's a scam because they are using pictures from other sites and photoshopping their store name.

But, kixify is a platform, not an outlet.

The question of whether kixify is legit is like asking if ebay is legit.

It's a platform to sell sneakers, some sellers will be legit, some won't.

What is an "authentic online store?"

Flightclub inspects the kicks (and does so very well) to ensure that no fakes are sold out of their brand. Kixify is just an aggregator of independent people selling kicks. There are definitely scammers/fakes on there - there's a thread here about a seller on there who stole pics from other auctions, PS-ed his tags on there and tried to run a scam listing Galaxys, Paranormans, etc. There are also 100% legit dudes using the site. Kixify is a marketplace, not a retailer.

My first time buying sneakers from Kixify.com. I bought these Black Cement 3's DS for a good price, and I have a pair of DB 9's on the way as well... But here are the Black Cement 3's. I'll post up pictures of the DB 9's when they come in.

The DB 9's I ordered was a scam. I was able to get a refund since I paid using paypal.

post #28 of 60

So would you buy a pair of shoes from a seller from Kixify, on the side, who's sent you a PayPal invoice, and it said they were 100% authentic.

If I paid that invoice and they were fakes, am I covered if they aren't?

 

Thanks.

post #29 of 60

Yes, you're are covered by Paypal buyer protection.

post #30 of 60
I'm not very into trading does yet, so if someone wants to do a trade with me where I add money and ship first, if they don't send the shoes, will I be able to get the shoes and money back? This would just be over paypal.
