Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

StockX pairs buyers with sellers and verifies products through its live bid-and-ask structure, funding itself by charging a transaction fee on each sale. In return it verifies each item sold on the platform for authenticity and condition, setting it aside from competitors in this space such as TheRealReal.

The company is now hoping to further distinguish itself by working directly with brands to release products through the platform, with a vision to letting its customers set the price for goods in the same way investors do for shares in the stock exchange.

Despite issues including allegations of counterfeiting from Nike and a general slowdown in the resale goods market over 2022, StockX has continued its rapid growth, doubling the number of buyers on its network to 12 million. While a global economic slowdown has caused it to give up on plans for an IPO in the near term, StockX is nonetheless planning to expand its product line and expand internationally in the near future.
