OfferUp employee

@Olamontana123 Awesome! And yeah, tons of tips members can help you with. I'm going to move this thread to the Pro Tips forum so you can hopefully get some helpful tips there and read tons Smiley Happy


Just a few from me: include good descriptions when uploading your shirts, multiple high-quality photos of different details (especially since you're making these shirts yourself, show them off!), include sizes for each shirt, & make sure you are a verified TruYou member. Anyone else? Smiley Happy

Hi @Olamontana123 😊
Great advice from @Elin just too add research your price point, answer all questions promptly, people will move on quickly if you don’t, what works for me best, I list my items at firm price, it cuts out a lot of lowball offers, you will still get offers through ask question option, don’t let your items get to old, try and re-list them three times a day, if you want a lot of action, don’t keep lowering your price people will message you then stop and wait till you drop the price, then make a offer. always message through OfferUp only, scammers like to try and get phone numbers and people personal information, don’t give out your address, meet in a public place like a coffee shop, or a safe zone police station lobby, also have a friend with you when meeting someone. Hope this helps you a little, happy sales 👍

Welcome to the Community Forums @Olamontana123. Any interest in the music scene? Getting high visibility with local bands, groupies or fans would get eyes on your stuff. Think of your local events that you may be able to get lots of people into t-shirts and create a buzz. When it comes to OfferUp ads...great pictures, great prices. That'll help.
