Hi everyone!

 

You will see three different sections on the homepage of the online community. The three sections are: Explore the Blog, Announcements, Discussion forums.

 

Explore the Blog will take you to four different parts. In Announcements you will be able to hear about exciting news we have coming up, the behind-the-scenes fun we may have, trending topics that are happening inside the online community, and much more. Features will give you an in depth look at what we have coming out so you can use them to your full potential. TruStories will highlight members of the community selected by us based on the stories they share as to how OfferUp has helped change their life. Tips will feature educational tips pulled from the forums featuring fellow community members, as well as a guest post here or there.

 

The Discussion forums are also broken down into four parts, with each part having its own section.

 

In Get Started, you will find our fun incentives you can earn like Badges and Ranks while you’re in the community, Community Guidelines, places to leave suggestions either to offer feedback, ideas, help and more. If you’re the type of OfferUp member who has great tips that you find you always tell your friends or family, post them in the Pro Tips forum! As you’ve read about above, we will be highlighting those community members who leave great tips for our Tips section in the blog. Local Connections is a place where you can get to know other OfferUp sellers who share your interests or your neighborhood, so you can connect on common ground. Lastly, if you are an entrepreneur who is doing incredible things with OfferUp, or if you’re the type of person who wants to learn how to start a business with us, Business Advice is the place to be. 

 

All in all, we can’t wait to see you and connect with you. If you see us, come say hi! Have fun connecting, exploring, and sharing!

Hi I'm new to this and I was wondering if it was appropriate forum for me to give the community a heads up about essentially what I think could be a scam with vehicles I can attach a photo later on if needed. but I really want the community to know that this 99% sure is a scam. 

OfferUp employee

@AllMixedUp While we want to steer clear from calling out specific people in the forums, I think a "How to be safe from scammers" post, or a "what to watch out for" would be very helpful!

Thanks

 Hello. I have been posting for several months now I've had a few sales from this platform iOffer many many items ranging from antiques to Vintage items to handcrafted items that I personally make art that I personally make to gently use no longer needed items I have a lot of items right now that would make great Christmas presents. And I would like to ask people to please take a look at my page and see what you may be interested in people who purchase multiple items will get discounts and if you're not local shipping is available. Thank you very much

Hello!

Captain

Why are buyers offering to buy and they cancel when to have confirmed time a date to pick up? It’s happened quite a bit. 

Level 7

Why isnt tge "announcements" area being used to tell us about whats new in each update that i seem to be getting daily? I expected this area to have that info so im not constantly guessing ax to what has been changed and how to use those adfitional features. There doesnt serm to be snything that tells people exactly how to use the app and what each ipdate brings specificslly new features.

 

The titles posted here in the forums are very misdleading in their content?

 

OfferUp employee

@zinda This is the Announcement blog for all Online Community-related content, not necessarily the app itself. We put new features and how to use them on the app in the Features part of the blog. 

Captain

 This has been a good experience all the people I've dealt with it so far have been very pleasant and sociable if I was grading OfferUp up I'd give it an A

Offer up is just an amazing app, it is very resourceful and the people that one gets to meet are just great in general. Is there any offer up merchandise ornstickers?

How do we get a suggestion to the Offerup programmers? The new hold feature is a good idea but it would be better on the seller side to have a time specific hold button. IE: 1 hour hold, 2 hour, 24 hour. Not on the the buyer side but on the seller side. And a “release hold” button. For the people that no show.

@Onlineyardsale Welcome to the OfferUp Community forum,

 

Onlineyardsale Right here I’ll also be glad to add this to my feedback list, the OfferUp team is always listening to their members ideas. Sometimes I’ve even see members ideas showing up in testing new features and even some actually show up in the live app. Thanks for sharing.

New Member

Ok well I think that a lot on people of offer up do not quite understand the true meaning of the app in itself. The whole point is to offer a offer you can offerd and the person deli g the item shouldn’t get mad at someone for the fact that they feel there offer was to low and that they then have the right to insult that person and act like a 3 year old and go back and forth arguing with a person who did what the site was created for to offer a price for USED items. If I wanted to pay retail price well then I would drive to the store and purchase a brand new it the. Where I knew it worked with no issues. All they have to say is no Thankyou or offer a price they would take and then the other person can say yes or no. Many people don’t like my offers. They say I’m trying to low ball them and that’s far from the truth. I have met many people who go way down on price cuz they want the item just gone and are willing to take whatever when some people are not willing to but I always got to try becaus I have not a high income and a lot of mouths to feed so some of us are not fortunate like others and since that’s my issue I gotta six the. Not ask cuz you never know. But then to keep being ridiculed and made me feel lower than I already do to be made fun of because I don’t have a lot of money to be is very ignorant and childish and it saddens me because I rather go yardsaleibg and garage sale if the. Do offer up. Which I was suppose to be under impression I thought this was yarxsaleibg online the only issue is I have to drive to multiple different paces when at a yard sale I get cheaper items all in the same place and paying prices from people who get furniture for real cheap and then greedily take those good deals and up them by 3rimes what they paid and flipping it and purposely going high to **bleep** people so they can make a bigger buck when someone profanely was kind and gave them a deal thinking they were helping them instead they scammed them and to me are very selfish and give people who really need a good deal who genuinely need that item at a low cost a bad name! So that’s my rant for the night! I promise it’s over!! Lol but I had to get that off my chest for real!!
