Yes it's really tough to set aside the hour or so it takes to take measurements on 10 pairs of pants, take 3-4 photos per pair, and then upload them. It's too much effort to answer PMs - oh, how those seconds/minutes add up! And if (more like when) they sell, they complain about the hour or so it takes to go to the post office to queue up and post them.
"Too much effort" they cry!
Assuming you sell just
5 pairs at a low-end $15 profit each, what sort of job allows anyone with zero qualifications save a bit of cash on hand and some spare time to make $75 over 2-3 hours? I went to medical school for 6 years and when I started out I barely made that hourly rate. And lest we forget - it's essentially a risk free proposition since if no one buys the seller can always return it
I'm almost embarrassed for the posters whenever these it's just too hard
