So sorry you are frustrated, but I can tell you it happen almost everywhere not just on this app. It happens on all social media sites, E commerce sites, and walk in stores. I have a brick and mortar store, AND sell on two E commerce sites, and Social Media, and on this app. Doesn't seem to matter where you sell, it happens. It is frustrating, but not worth stressing because the ones that do follow through, or buy at your asking price, are so much more worth dwelling on.
Before the holidays I contacted a person that's selling a knitting machine for $20.00. He responded about 1 week later and told me he would get back to me after the holidays. He never responded so I contacted him again first part of January. He never responded and he's still running the ad.
I know this topic was posted last year, but it is still true today, so thanks for allowing me to agree with the venting!
I am new to this platform. I am a Craigslist person and have had pretty good success there. I waited quite sometime before joining OfferUp because new things usually have a lot of kinks to be fixed. Decreasing/avoiding the amount of no shows, no responses/inactives, lowballers or those who arrive with incorrect funds seems to be an ongoing kink.
I can deal with not selling on OfferUp because I have other venues. What is most frustrating is not getting responses to specific questions about an item or even an acceptance/denial of a made offer (at asking or no more than $5 off). What is so hard about responding with the correct information, if you're not a scammer, or denying an offer you do not like, or marking the item as "sold," if it is no longer available? What is so hard about deactivating accounts that have not been accessed in months or allowing others to see if the seller/buyer has missed meetings? *sigh*
