    Man, I"ve tried buying KD 8's and some Harden 2 LS's off GOAT. Everything seemed to be going smoothly, prices were low and I'm like "wow i'm saving money this is dope!"

    both sellers canceled the orders. uh.. what? your shoes are listed as x price and when i try to buy them you cancel? i'm sticking to stockx now i've lost hope and respect for goat

    Got a DS pair of 2002 French Blue 7's today, I know it said no box in the description, and usually when it says that I get a replacement box. Not this time smh. I got spoiled, but oh well. Gotta make do.

    Pricing is different even within regions. House of Hoops supposedly aren’t even owned by corporate (at least as of my conversation with a lady that worked for FTL.com about 5 years ago when I lived in Houston. Who knows whether she’s right?). Odd thing is, the last few years when they quit discounting certain Jordan’s, like the 11s, and Ultra Boost for a while, they told me it’s because of corporate; go figure.

    Anyway, my whole conversation with the lady started about a return. Manager at Gulfgate FTL was being a **** about a return, spoke to the lady and she told me dude was wrong and just sent me a return label for some Kobe 9 Allstars I purchased 2 days earlier. The short of it was HoH weren’t owned by FTL, corporate had to price match brick and mortar stores, but not the other way around, and QS couldn’t be returned for 24 hours. Whether everything she told me was true, who knows?

    Another thing I noticed was when Pure Boost came out, I was buying them pretty religously and I noticed a pair of PBs at the Northline HoH were more expensive (they were still full price) than the Galleria HoH. Mind you, they may have been out a month, and this was before the whole Kanye and white Energy Boost ordeal that made UBs take off, but the PBs were like 50% off. Once HoH wouldn’t match the other and they were like 5 miles apart.

    Anyway, take that ramble for what it’s worth. Again, this was like 5 years ago, so take it with a grain of salt.

    So I’m thinking about letting a pair go. About to go through the listing and on the bottom it says I’m a trusted seller, no photos needed to submit but I haven’t even sold that many, only about 5. Has it always been like this? I thought they needed pictures on every listings.

    Used to require more sales for this but now they allow no photos after your first sale.

    Seems like they had to do this in order to compete with StockX

    Yea it’s a lot better without the photos. Didn’t really see the point of it since they still have to verify it. I do think for used pairs photos should be included in the listing so buyers can actually see the condition it’s in, but even used pairs dont require it now.

    Soooo, I purchase a pair of Js on GOAT using PayPal. My preference is set to PayPal credit. However, it charges the bank acct I have my PayPal linked to. Called PayPal, they tell me GOAT doesn't accept PayPal credit, it declined the credit, and ran my bank acct. I asked why I wasn't given a choice to try a 2nd way to collect payment, and all I got was, "so sorry but theres nothing we can do at the moment". I just put a stop payment on the transaction, hoping it gets cancelled. Has anyone else had this happen?

    thats on your PayPal settings, nothing to do with goat

    if you used PayPal it would deduct from your preferred payment, if that gets rejected it goes onto the next and so on.
