The CheckCheck alternative that's actually the real deal: more accurate, better customer support, actual authentications (with actual reasons) + more

Would you risk authenticating your item with authenticators that are not the most accurate? We wouldn't. Read on for a CheckCheck vs Legit Check By Ch comparison

Real expertise, not self claimed

Anyone can set up a website and claim they know how to authenticate items. Yes, sure, influencers can recommend a solution, but should you trust what influencers recommend? We think actions speak louder than words (especially words from paid ads). We'll just put it this way: Legit Check By Ch has a library with 1,000,000+ words written in free, public guides. Trusted businesses in the industry use our free guides to train themselves. This is what real, proven expertise means. That is not what setting up a website and claiming 'I know how to authenticate' means.

The proper authentication service

On average, we give out 5-6 reasons for our decisions. You won't be hit with 'authentic' or 'fake' and nothing else on top. Quite the opposite: our team will let you know what it is that makes your item authentic or fake (with a list of reasons). This, once again, speaks to our mission: we care about educating the industry and the markets, not just making a quick $. We pour our revenue into the Library of guides, so what you pay us helps our efforts even further: fewer scams will, hopefully, take place thanks to you.

We have actual experts

Let's put it this way: if you pay $0.75 for an authentication, how much is the authenticator making out of that? Probably less than $0.75. The question is: do you think somebody who is paid part of $0.75 per check is actually spending time every day with Louis Vuitton, rare collectible Nikes, etc? If you would spend the last 10 years of your life learning and knowing all this information on legit checking items — would you want to be paid less than half of $0.75 for checking an item? Probably not. We can't imagine being paid that and then looking every day at luxury items. So we have a system where we take care of our experts. That also means: better customer support, more patience, a professional service, etc.

Why people are choosing us as a CheckCheck Alternative

Here are some more of the reasons people have shared for why they’ve chosen Legit Check By Ch vs Check Check

Actual proof to the claim of expertise

Legit Check By Ch is the most trusted authentication service in the industry, due to the facts: we have a solid proof to our claim of 'We know how to authenticate items'. Ask other services and see for yourself the answer: "Trust us, we just know".

Multiple authenticators handle your item

We are a CheckCheck alternative. When you buy an authentication, the item goes through at least 2 teams, and as many as 4 teams. This way, the risk of failure is reduced dramatically. That's how we've managed to keep the most accurate rate of success.

Proper customer support as a CheckCheck Alternative

Because we don't sell authentications in the same way that a factory can produce in a high-volume, low-quality system, we can actually afford to: A) Talk to you, B) Want to help you, C) Care about doing the right thing, D) Do the right thing. If we can help, we'll do it. If we can clarify a question of yours, we'll do it

We're trusted by relevant institutions

Our Certificate of Authenticity has a 99.9% accuracy rate (guaranteed) and it's been trusted by various institutions: Chase, Bank of America, PayPal, eBay, Poshmark etc. This is just facts. This is not bragging about partnerships (although we do that as well) — it's simply what happened. We wouldn't want to mess with that. Hence, we're doing our best to be at the top of our game all the time — for you.

Legit Check By Ch Vs CheckCheck: what's right for me?

We want to be honest in this comparison. We naturally think we're the best option, but here's an honest comparison:

Both companies can authenticate the item for you. It's mostly down to this question: do you need an answer that is as precise as possible? Or do you just need a quick reply, where the answer is not that important?

What we mean by that is: you should go with CheckCheck if you don't care that much whether the verdict is accurate or not. Maybe it's a second check, or maybe you don't care that much because the item is not yours. For whatever reason. If that's the case, then we have no shame in saying it: don't pay us, and save the money. It's cheaper.

If the verdict is important to you and you don't want to take any chances, we've built Legit Check By Ch for you.

We believe the following: if the health of relative of yours would be in danger, you wouldn't want to go to the fastest or the cheapest surgeon. Why? The stakes are too high: your relative's life is in danger.

We think it's the same situation here: we've got fed up with paying $500 → $5,000 for items, without knowing whether we're getting scammed or not. The stakes were too high. If we wanted fake items, we would have bought them. But we didn't: we wanted to know that what we paid for was not the $100 cheap knock-off.

Imagine paying $900 for an item that actually costs $100. That's not even taking into account the social aspect, or the moral one. Just the financial one. The stakes were too high to take a chance. So we wanted an authentication service that doesn't play around and that has a perfect reputation.

Another thing to consider is what happens after the authentication: got a problem or something you need clarified? CheckCheck vs Legit Check By Ch's business model is not the same — CheckCheck can't afford to handle all those problems. As an alternative to the CheckCheck App, we do. But it's simply down to what you need. Maybe you don't need all those bells and whistles.

Do we cost more? Yes. Do we have a reason for doing that. You bet — for all the reasons we've listed above.

Are we the fastest? Probably not. If you need a quick answer, CheckCheck's $0.75 to $3 per authentication price tags will do that for you. But we simply didn't want to rush our authenticators to put out a sloppy verdict, simply because they have 1 minute left to make a decision. Our verdicts can come in as little as 20 minutes, but we have a 48h timeframe (which we never really reach, to be honest).

Authentication Service FAQs

Can you authenticate my item? If yes, where do I start?

The short answer is: we most probably can.

On the off-chance that you place an order for an item we can't authenticate, we'll refund the purchase.

Besides, if we're not sure about an authentication's verdict, we would rather refund the purchase.

Our expertise is earned through the millions of words for the thousands of items we've covered in our Legit Check By Ch Library, where we keep publishing, updating, curating and tweaking the world's most exhaustive Library of fake vs real authentication guides.

To find out for sure whether we can authenticate an item or not:

1. Simply click the green button below
2. Find your item
3. You'll either find your item in our list, or, if you can't find it, you'll be able to select just the brand and the item type.

What do I need to place an order?
Is it complicated?

Not much... just your device, information and... that's pretty much it! Even pics of your item are optional: you can upload them later at any given point.
How does the Authentication Service work? What happens once I order?
We've explained everything on this page, but the short of it is:

1. Send us pictures and a few details
2. An authenticator is assigned to your order
3. We come back with a verdict ASAP
4. If we can, we'll help you get your money back.

What's your accuracy %? Why do you claim to be the most trusted service?

It's pretty simple: we wouldn't have offered the service if we weren't bulletproof from this point of view. Why? The reason why we started offering the service is simply because anyone can claim expertise.

Anyone can open up a stall tomorrow and claim "I know how to authenticate".

But the stakes are too high, we believe, for anyone to risk going to somebody who can't prove his expertise. You wouldn't go to the cheapest and fastest surgeon on the market, would you? Not when your (or somebody you love's) life is at stake.

So our expertise is earned through the millions of words for the thousands of items we've covered in our Legit Check By Ch Library, where we keep publishing, updating, curating and tweaking the world's most exhaustive Library of fake vs real authentication guides.

By choosing us, you're making the industry a safer place, as millions of people from all countries around the world rely upon our guides. We're pouring back the money you pay us into making the Library even stronger.
