Shipping feature!?

Community Manager

@Jcncream Good question - I'm assuming that the funds will be released sometime tomorrow. Once the funds have been released, you will no longer see the Pending deposit as it will be on the way to your bank, which can take up to 5 business days.

If I'm remembering correctly, you have used the feature before, so the transfer to your bank should be sliiiightly quicker than last time. My guess is that you should have the funds on Monday or Tuesday Smiley Happy

The seller told you he was waiting 5 days for payment before shipping?

If that's what your saying, that's a user problem, not a shipping problem. Reminders are sent to the seller very quickly to ship the item. Payment wont come until after you've received and had your 3 day protection window.

The shipping feature has clear instructions from what I've seen.

How shipping works for sellers.  How shipping works for buyers

Now, my experience has been, some people set up for shipping but once they get the offer, they become flaky. Has happened to me with 3 recent sellers. Yet, yes, I love the shipping. How sellers handle it is another issue. Just like meeting face-to-face some people are more reliable than others.

I also forgot: Buyer protection on OfferUp.

Which has worked fine for me when I used it. The return shipping will be up to you to handle of course.

Hi there, @Lynnie22 - have you reached out to the Customer Care or Shipping team yet? 

Level 1

As a buyer I love it. Problem is it only shiws up sporadically at best and generally on my desktop and not my phone.  Which is weird. I had been lookig for a camera and never could find it local.  When I would ask sellers about the option, Bam!  That was basically the last communication, they wouldnt even respond. So,  the $500 went to someone on another site.  I even offered sellers the option of waiting till the payment cleared before sending the item.  Oh well, hey, some things you just cannot locate within a 8hr round trip, which is too bad.  Most of the time it is a very good thing, just not all the time

Welcome to the Community Forums @ChuckDollar.
I'm not sure I can understand what you mean by it only showing up sporadically. You mean items available for shipping?

There is a tab above the listings to choose shipping in your search. If your not seeing that, maybe you need to update your app.
