I notice Grailed is now offering to authenticate things for buyers for an additional 4%. IMO, I shouldn’t have to pay to not be scammed on their web site.
CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Ehhh I kinda disagree hereI notice Grailed is now offering to authenticate things for buyers for an additional 4%. IMO, I shouldn’t have to pay to not be scammed on their web site.
So that is basically an insurance policy. It means they are profiting way too much or there is something like 2%+ fake.Ehhh I kinda disagree here
You want certainty that an item is real, buy it from a store
If you're in the secondary market, I feel like the onus is on the buyer to do their own checks.
The 4% for the extra work they have to do seems fair IMO.
I think in an age where knock offs are getting better and better, it's harder to put in systems that can catch everything.It’s like they’re admitting they do a shit job of weeding out fakes. Why pay for them to view the item in person? The RealReal has every item in their possession, and they can’t tell what’s genuine.

Yeah. I didn’t see any of the articles; I just got the email from RealReal calling them fake news, essentially. *We verify!*. (Except they don’t).
Another pro for Poshmark is they authenticate goods purchase above $500 which is great for people like me who are offloading high end bags. Atleast I am not worried about buyer claiming its non authentic and sending me a generic bag back.
For everything else its Mercari. I think they charge 10% and cheap stuff sells quick.
