The Anti-Counterfeiting Exchange eliminates counterfeits across the retail industry

The Anti-Counterfeiting Exchange is a collective effort to make it safer to shop online and more difficult for bad actors to move among different stores to attempt to sell their counterfeit goods.

Protect consumers, brands, and rights owners from counterfeiters

The Anti-Counterfeiting Exchange enables participating stores to regularly share information about confirmed counterfeiters so participants can more quickly detect and address counterfeiting, improve their individual risk evaluation systems, and hold more counterfeiters and criminal organizations accountable with law enforcement.
