OfferUp App and Offer Community

Level 1

Why is the offerup community separate from the offerup selling site itself.  For example, I had to signup here (community) with a user name different than the selling site itself.  Plus I am getting a lot of views, but as always, low ballers, and messages do not alert sound through my android, so I am sitting here with my email open and offerup signed in and open also.

Community user Jenny2018 - offerup user Jenny Pompano)  - why cant they both be the same instead navigating of the offerup site completely?

 

Anyways, thank you for having me on board - Hey Folks, nice to meet all of you :0)

@Jenny2018

Reason for separation: OfferUp does not want people to advertise/solicit/market their items on the forum, which is why the profiles from the app and the forum are not linked. Otherwise, it just becomes an extension of the app,

 

The forum is a place to share ideas and info in regards to the app itself.

@Jenny2018 Lapua got this answered for ya! It's also for privacy reasons. If you feel comfortable privately sending someone a link to your account, that's allowed, but posting any identifiable information (aside from a profile pic) isn't allowed.

OK got it, saw both responses and understand, just thought it would be simplier for logging in at both places instead of having to remember so many logging details. For i.e. log in to offerup and it would sign you auto to community also and not have 2 different sites.
