So with Offerup, and there pickup option. People are able to sell things to people in there area by walking or by the use of transportation. Although say if someone is interested in an item but they live in another state, This is where OfferUp’s shipping comes into play, you will be able to expand across the country.

I havent done it but having to package, ship , postage this and that doesn't seem like a good experience to me. I definitely wouldn't buy without laying my eyes on the real product. Maybe I'm wrong but it seems like a huge hassle. ?????
