How To Ship on Grailed: A Step-by-Step
If you have never shipped with Grailed labels, it’s super easy and convenient:
First, let’s talk about U.S. sales and national shipping on Grailed:
When listing, there really isn’t anything to do- the approximate weight is no longer required.
You will only choose whether to offer free shipping or charge for shipping.
How to Offer Free Shipping on Grailed:
If you want to offer free shipping to entice buyers, you simply check that off in the listing form.
Note that if you opt to pay for shipping, the cost varies. You will not know the cost to you at the time of listing, because the shipping cost is based on the item and the buyer’s location.
For reference, I toggled free shipping on a t-shirt, and the price displayed was $7. For a sweatshirt, it was $15.
When you make a sale, you can download the label from Grailed
You’ll receive a sales notification where you can easily print your label, affix it to your package, and ship:
Grailed labels are either USPS or UPS, and you can still pay for signature confirmation if you feel so inclined.
💡Selling large and heavy items? Grailed labels are not available for parcels weighing over 20lbs. See below how to do self-shipping.
Now, let’s talk about Grailed International Shipping:
International shipping is made simple on Grailed. On the listing form, you can customize the rate you will charge for shipping.
If you’re unsure how much to enter in these fields, I recommend pricing on the higher side so that you don’t undercharge and eat too much of your profit.
You can use PirateShip to estimate shipping costs to various countries to get a better idea of market costs. Personally, I generally follow these parameters for my listings:
- Under 4oz: $15 to Canada and $25 to other countries
- 5oz-1lb: $20 to Canada and $50 to other countries
- 1.1lb-2lb: $40 to Canada and $65 to other countries
💡Tip: I also put a note in my listing description encouraging buyers to message me for international shipping prices. With a buyer’s address, I can calculate an exact rate that is often better than my high estimates.
Remember, these rules apply to items over 20 lbs as well, as those cannot be shipped with Grailed labels.
Grailed Labels: New Shipping Changes on Grailed
What is new? If you have been selling on Grailed for a while, here is what has changed as of late 2023:
- All new listings shipping within the US will ship with prepaid shipping labels from Grailed
- If you have listings that offer self-shipping, Grailed will automatically change them at that time.
- All items under 20 lbs ship with a standard Grailed Label. You no longer need to weigh and measure your items!
- Grailed encourages sellers to charge shipping, but you can still offer free shipping in the listing form.
- Offers no longer require that the seller pays for the shipping out-of-pocket.
