This happens when browsing to buy items.
One seller kindly replied it was not local to my area because they forgot to click button for pick up only/no shipping.
It's not very efficent looking through all these items with many from other states. :/
I just posted here before I saw this thread https://community.offerup.com/t5/Welcome/FEATURE-REQUEST-Ignore-Not-Interested-in-Posts/m-p/38275
In any case, I'd like a way of ignoring or otherwise marking a post as "not interested". As I'm scrolling through, the vast majority of posts I am not interested in. Even if I do a more specific search, there are plenty of results that I just don't care about. It'd be nice to have a "Not Interested" or "Ignore" button so that the post doesn't keep showing up. For example, I look for "Snowboard Boots" and get a bunch of hits. As I go through the results, I'll discard some for any number of reasons. Sure, I can add the ones I'm interested in to a board, but now I have to manage that board. I'd much rather just remove all irrelevant results and not have to worry about them again. When I repeat the search next week, those same posts I don't care about are going to show up. I can't rely on people putting the exact words I'm looking for in the item description, so searches remain broad brushed.
Why is this marked SOLVED! ? This is still not solved.
My OfferUp is still congested with ads from sellers in other states and yes it is set to my local area and I'm browsing to Buy stuff.
I assure you things HAVE CHANGED, and unfortunately for the worse.
Before OfferUp started offering Shipping option a user could browse their local ads to buy stuff.
NOW it is diluted with stuff for sale from other states.
No, I don't want to waste my time seeing or risk my $$$ to buy stuff from other states in my OfferUp.
*Also, look at the rediculously low prices people have listed to ship. I saw a large fence over two thousand miles away and shipping said 20.00.... Impossible to ship what I was looking at for that!
Thanks, and please keep letting OfferUp know your desires... things may get better as it once was.
Hi, local pickup is only able to be chosen if you are Selling something.
Please Offer OfferUp Customer care your suggestions to improve what used to be one of my favorite apps!,
SOLVED but not (yet) fixed.
A message to OfferUp Customer Care was answered in less than 5 minutes.
I have posted her reply here to hopefully help others and also get other app users to contact Customer Care when needed. Thanks Vicky =)
Please Please PLEASE install a way for Buyers to eliminate seeing ad's from local area chosen. My OfferUp buying experience has diminished dramatically as now when I browse there are ad's diluting page from Non Local areas. Many don't want to deal with shipping to or from. Please fix this! Thanks =)
