I build rustic furniture and have turned a hobby into a business and sell on offerup. If it wasn't for offer up o wouldn't have a business because I can't afford to a storefront and hate eBay and don't want to ship stuff when the shipping costs for an item would be more than what I charged for it. There are a lot of people like me who make furniture and sell on offer up not all is box store as you say. Try looking in a specific category for whatever your looking for that's what I do. Its faster then trying to scroll through everything on the main feed. Offer up is for everybody and I'm sorry you think it should only be for people selling their unwanted items only. You could always try letgo or better yet Craigslist oh and its not the "clogged feed" making it difficult to sell stuff because people do look in categories and not just the feed. You have to be proactive repost your listing every few days
Hi @Robynbyrd ,
I didn't think your comments were, I understand about the car dealers and box stores. Believe it or not its not as bad as it was a year or two ago. For awhile there it was all car dealers spamming the same ads over and over. And there were the massive amount of scam posts offering 20000 dollar cars for $2495 or some ridiculous price and they only wanted to co!mmunicate through email. But there are some people who complain about small business like mine where I'm trying to make a living to support myself. And if you take a look at those who are complaining 60% of them are selling used makeup, drug paraphenalia, weapons, and pot. It just makes me mad that they think I sdouldnt be selling on offerup, when really half the stuff they're hawking the goodwill wouldn't tale it as donations.
