What is SNEAKQL?

A sneaker launch platform retailers can use to manage the launches of hyped sneakers. SNEAKQL prevents sites crashing, stops scammers and delivers a launch that is Run Fair

What does Run Fair mean?

We believe that everyone should have a fair chance of getting their hands on the sneakers they love, that's why we've built fairness in.

SNEAKQL's smart technology helps deliver a fair draw and supports the rules we live by:
  • Only humans can enter draws: Every entry goes through a mulit-step security verification process that confirms you are a human.
  • One entry per person: Entries are deduplicated against unique identification tags.
  • Launches are always secure: We use best in class security protocols and comply with GDPR standards to make sure your information it always safe and secure.
  • It should be simple to enter: Once you have a verified SNEAKQL account, entering becomes a breeze.

When you see the 'Run Fair' logo, it's a sign of integrity. It means the technology used and the steps taken by the retailer to run the launch are of the highest standard. The launch has been "Run Fair"

How does SNEAKQL work for retailers

Retailers simply set up their launch on SNEAKQL's launch platform. SNEAKQL analysis this information then provides a branded hyperlink that is placed on the retailer’s site. This links to your new launch page where visitors can enter the draw for the chance to win. Once the launch closes and it's draw time, that's when SNEAKQL's automated draw logic kicks in.

What is the the credit card verification step that asks for a pin number?

This is called 3D secure, it confirms with your bank that you are the real card holder. This process ensures that the card is not stolen, or fraudulent activity hasn’t occurred on it previously.

What do I do if 3D secure isn’t working for me?

3D secure is managed by your bank. If you are having issues, please contact them. You can also try to switch devices. For example, move from desktop to mobile.

Do I purchase the product from SNEAKQL?

No. The transaction agreement is made between the draw winner and the retailer.

Can I enter a draw for the same product multiple times?

We want everyone to have a fair chance of getting their hands on sneakers they love. More sneakers in the hands of more people makes everyone feel great. So, only one entry per person per product. That’s the way a fair draw should be run.
