You’re in! We’re giving you VIP, early access to our new personalized OfferUp URLs as a thank you for being a part of our online community. Translation - You get this before the general public!
Starting today, you can create and personalize your own OfferUp URL! Don’t worry - this won’t go away, but we’re giving you first dibs. This feature will let buyers find you faster and easier, which will hopefully translate to more cash in your pocket. If you remember, we made changes to our users’ profiles about a year ago to help build trust between buyers and sellers and here’s another way we’re supporting that - we’re so excited! These personalized profile links will be first come, first serve, so be sure to lock down your personalized URL as soon as possible. Be careful of any typos - once the personalized URL is set, it will be yours forever.
Creating a personalized URL only takes three easy steps, as pictured below. It’s as simple as navigating to your user profile, selecting “Custom profile link” and type in whatever you’d like to be identified as on OfferUp! Keep in mind, however, that we won’t allow names that include profanity or anything inappropriate.
Excited to choose your name? I know I am! I’ll be more creative than “Mj_206” with my personalized URL. Since I mostly sell makeup, I think I might use “MjsMakeUp” because not only is it cute and fun, but it also lets others know what I mostly sell! So, my direct link would look like offerup.com/profile/MjsMakeUp 💄Once I have my personalized URL, I’ll be able to market my profile even better, post my link on my social accounts, and sell-sell-sell! What are you going to set your personalized URL to?
