People are such scumbags, I swear.
If my small size doesn't work out, I'll let them go for 248 + shipping from Hawaii. Better than returning and having them potentially be this.

If the person is selling multiple I'd agree 100% but otherwise don't be so quick to judge. I've put a pair of practice shorts up for about the same price with no scumbag intentions..

Lets do some grailed Math:
$358 asking price
Everyone on grailed seems to lowball so if he's lucky he'll get an offer of 80% of the asking price:
358*0.8= $286
Grailed takes ~13% fees:
$286*0.87= $248

These retail for 248 right? So with taxes they're still losing money here.. Even if they sell for their asking price they're making like $20. Not to mention time lost... at least where I am lines at the post office suck right now.

In my case I'm in Canada too so add on +$27 shipping and +$35 tax/duties and I lost a good chunk of cash selling a pair for around $300 on grailed.

The problem lies in the shorts not even being released or shipped yet. These are specifically being sold as a flip. Which makes me wonder why he even listed them for that price in the first place, since he's barely getting what he paid. He hasn't even gotten them and also has the option to return if needed 🙄

I never sold on Grailed so I'm completely ignorant of how much they ream you in fees. Thank you for explaining it. I appreciate it.

*Guy just sold for $364. Guess he's a scumbag after all 😂
