    The odds you get a fake are .0001%. Just buy what you want.

    Guys, question here, just to see if someone has had this happen to you on GOAT. Long story short, Last Thursday I sold a pair of shoes by matching a "best offer" price. As you know, sometimes orders get reviewed and not accepted right away for a "secure" transaction. After 24 hours (which they say is the maximum time under review, in which the sale must be approved or denied) i emailed them 2 times stating the sale was still pending, got only 1 response that they will look into it. Today, 5 days later sale is confirmed! I already told them i cant ship because I'm out of town and that i shouldn't loose seller rating based on this! I really believe this is BS, do they expect for you to wait for almost a week without potentially selling elsewhere or something like this happening? I mean i do have the shoes but i just cant ship right now, (i actually enabled vacation mode on the app last sunday) Just want to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

    I've had it take 3 days just recently. I wasn't on vacation on the latter part of those 3 days but I can see your dilemma. Surely they will be ok with it.

    ^just another reason goat should leave a listing active until the payment goes thru...if a more qualified buyer comes along or anything else happens (like seller going on vacation) then the 'underqualified' buyer is sol

    That's actually a good idea. That will be great both for sellers and buyers.

    Mine took 2 business days to 'REVIEW", then finally confirmed today. They are just taking extra measures that the buyer has sufficient funding and extra security measures.

    I get that they are trying to be secure or something, but they should either change their App description on time frames or at the very least get back to you via email stating its going to take X amount of days and if thats ok with you. Just poor CS/Management i suppose. :ohwell:

    Update guys, i finally got a response, they cancelled the order and did not deduct seller rating because of it. Finally a good call, wish it didn't take so long for CS to respond though, they definitely need a call center or something to speed things up. Thanks everyone for your comments.

    Is it the same result if you hit cancel manually or have them auto cancel? I sold a pair of shoe on stockx and completely forgot to remove the same shoes from goat.

    Debating on copping a pair of OG UNC 1's off the Goat app 300usd for worn 360usd for new , are those prices accurate for what they're going for in the re sell market ?

    Hmmm I don't know about the price, but when i buy shoes for myself that are over retail i usually go with the used shoe if they look practically new / very good condition if they are to be used frequently on my rotation and save a few bucks, but thats just me.

    This is my first time in this thread. I buy from GOAT because I found decent deals, but I notice they let sellers take pics of shoes in the dark. I hate that. I bought a pair of birthday lebron 4's once and there was a few things wrong with them that wasn't stated in the description (i.e cracking, and the tab on the velcro strap fell off. I complained and got a $10 credit). I think they need to make sure sellers take clear and bright pics. I also once saw a fake pair of cool grey XI's, and they were bad fakes. I tried to report it, but for some reason it didn't go through.

    Who cares reporting fakes, wanna know why. If someone is stupid enough to knowingly sell fakes and someone buys it, they’ll get rejected and the seller will be on the hook to pay for the initial shipping and return shipping to get his fakes back :wink:

    Not everyone pores over shoes like the NT community, it's not just us that deals with GOAT, and that pair shouldn't have made it to the site in the first place. Who's monitoring the pics? Clearly no one since there are issues with the clarity of the pics, that was my whole point of saying that. GOAT is partially to blame for that, and it was one of my complaints with the lebron 4's. You should also be able to request more pics if you are a buyer.

    You dont have to go over them, Goat does that for you. That's what you pay them for.

    They don’t monitor that because in the end they have to go through verification

    With the used kicks, that’s the issue. They compare to the pictures used and verified they’re authentic. That’s it. Good chance when buying used you’ll find an issue or see something you weren’t expecting

    Does anyone have experience with buying used shoes on GOAT? I might look into buying used Off White sneakers but want to know if they usually come with all the extra laces and accessories.

    Sold some kicks on GOAT recently after a several month hiatus, and I was pleasantly surprised. I'm shipping from NJ -- in the past I'd have to UPS it to Cali (3 days), then wait for verification and payment. This time around, they gave me a USPS label to a center in NJ -- package delivered, shoes verified, and money deposited next day.
