I love this post so much, @Jaynana58!! I'm glad you found these forums because I'm sure you have some tips and tricks for us! I'm a more casual seller and buyer, but I'm beyond passionate about this community. I found OfferUp through an old friend actually! He told me all about the app and to apply for a job, and here I am ~3 years later!
My favorite part about OfferUp is our Community MeetUp Spots!
I sold things on eBay years ago (maybe 12 - 15 years ago) but it just got hard to keep up with and work full time too so I just gave it up. I too am a pack rat so I recently listed a few items here but didn’t opt for the shipping. I live in a small town and haven’t really had any hits on my items yet. I think I priced them low enough, good descriptions and pics. I’m just wondering how long to leave them before maybe lowering the price or removing them. I’m still learning and welcome to any tips.
No...I'm certainly not an expert at selling in OfferUp...but I love the fun and the thrill of the sale. OfferUp is a unique platform in that they are professional and very organized site. I'm retired and have time to invest in what I'm doing so therefore I've had nothing but good experience's. I did have a run in with a very rude seller...but as for as I'm concerned that was then and this is now. Age has taught me too move on and not let it happen again . I say just try to have fun with it...enjoy the fun of being a part of society and having a purpose. I'm not going to miss a meal or a deal if any one particular buyer passes me by. There will always be another person come alone that will want what you offer and at the price you are asking. No need to remove a post or reduce the price. Odds are you're already selling way to cheap anyway. Just wait and keep working at it... It will sell. You bought it.. so will someone else ! I love OfferUp...and I sincerely care about all of my fellow seller's. I wish you all the very best. Just keep trying and things will happen ...good luck ! ❤😊
