Can't message or make offers without Truyou

Level 1
Why am I being forced to use truyou? I thought it was optional.

Now I am unable to message or make any offers.

Any ideas?

Someone else had this issue.

Yes, it should be optional.

Reach out to OfferUp Support and send them screenshots when requested.

@goblin @Hotrod I contacted customer support and they replied stating that truyou is important for peoples safety and proceeded to ignore messages after that. 10/10

It's usually flagged because you are selling high-risk items. What have you been using OfferUp for?

It's not optional! Offerup are liars! I got the truyou block box everytime I tried to message or make an offer. My account is essensially suspended unless I give them my drivers license or passport! They inisitially told me it was a technical error block and it has been resolved. Then I checked and the block remained. I complained again and they told me I mist give them my license or passport! Liars! That's rediculous! That's very private and I don't trust "offerup" or anyone else with it. Very unsafe. If they lie about the technical error they could be lying about what they do with your ID. Come clean offerup! Let members know what you are doing!
