WOW! Sounds like great advice @LakotApache ! I deal with these types of people and messages way too often. It's actually one of the main factors that deters me from listing many many more items on OfferUp currently. I will definitely be giving this a try moving forward!

I just recently agreed to accept an offer for 50% of my asking from some one, said they'd pick it up, and then asking for measurements and now says they need to check if it'll fit and not setting a date. Ugh! Extremely frustrating!

@ZygyKoz It definitely is great advice! Maybe you can try putting in measurements moving forward in your descriptions so that doesn't happen again Smiley Happy Just a thought to help with this! 

Well atleast you do reply in a timely manner...most of the people that I’ve dealt with on here either take 3 weeks to answer or don’t answer at all....now that is just ridiculous....sorry just venting at most of the sellers out there...

Thank you so much for this advise! I'm kinda new and that frustrates me the most. What a great common sense reasonable response to this problem. Can't wait to try it. Thanks again!

Great advice, thx! I’ve been sitting waiting for a no show on my first use of this app. How do you handle people wanting your address but not committing to a time to come see the item?

I rarely give out my actual address. If I do, it’s usually when they tell me they’re on their way.

Thanks Abi, good idea, I will do that next time.

Hi pink, I answered earlier but I don't think it showed up. What I said was the way I deal with it is 2 ask first how long will it take them to get to my area. Then I have them message me when they get there and I direct them to my house only a couple of blocks away without giving them my address at all because I can meet them in my drive way.
I hope that helps!

Hi LakotApache, thank you for your answer! People don’t have an issue with you doing it that way? The person I was dealing with kept insisting on my address.
