My buyer has agreed to make a deposit payment on an item so he can reserve an item. How does he go about making the payment within OfferUp? I recommended doing it in app for transparency and to have a paper trail.

The buyer can use OfferUp's "hold" option. It was created this is exact situation.

@Paulwnek, I dont believe there is a reserve function in OU.

Other way I can think is have them transfer the deposit to your account, and give them copy of the bank transaction as a good faith of showing you received it.
