I’m sure we’ve all been asked if we can hold an item for an interested buyer. The idea sounds great, but you’re worried that the buyer might cancel last minute. The buyer is willing to initiate payment for the item now ensuring that it is held for them until they can get it. A win-win for all!
The buyer knows the item will be held for them, the seller knows that they have funds pending the completion of the transaction, and the fear of having a buyer flake has significantly improved
With thousands of items getting posted on OfferUp daily, you’ll probably find an item that you just need to have. Currently, to express an interest on an item you’d like to purchase, you tap on the “Ask” or “Make Offer” options. From there, you schedule a meetup that works for everyone’s schedules, swap cash for the item in question, and then bring your new item home. Wouldn't it be nice to instantly purchase the item? Introducing Buy Now on OfferUp.
Starting today, you can create and personalize your own OfferUp URL! This feature will let buyers find you faster and easier, which will hopefully translate to more cash in your pocket.

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.

As we shared in our first blog post, the NeighborUp program came from many months of research and discussion around the state of trust in our communities and neighborhoods. We were motivated to act out of concern over the statistics, the angst happening in our own discussions with family and friends, and the real challenges facing our country that were evident wherever we turned.
Earlier this summer in Dallas, Texas, a mom of a toddler sold her stroller to an expectant mother on OfferUp. What started as a simple exchange of stuff turned into an hour-long conversation about the unspoken challenges and joys of becoming a mom.
