Wow... Maybe thats why this app isnt really taking off. Plus the fake ads. I just logged on and the first 8 vehicles are Fake ads with spam. And everytime I report them, I get ANOTHER email..... Do you work for offerup? Because they need to really listen to users and find out why people dont use it...
This is my first time messaging on this board and I am also a brand new user of OfferUp. I have now sold a few things and overall really like it, but I have one BIG complaint - I'm being swamped with unwanted emails driven by every little comment that anyone writes to me! I'm getting so many my inbox is filling up and I'm missing important email and I consider this such a significant problem that I'm considering looking at other online marketplaces because, from what I'm seeing here, there isn't a way to turn off these ridiculous emails.
In fact, I don't understand the logic in why OfferUp would even want to include this annoying feature as it's just not helpful for someone selling or buying occasionally as a part time thing. Getting notifications on my mobile device is plenty! Maybe full time professional buyers/sellers don't use their email for anything else, but I'm not in that boat and am finding this issue to be a serious problem.
I am going to look at my email client and see if I can automatically route these messages to a dedicated OfferUp folder so I don't even see them in my Inbox. If that doesn't work, I guess the only thing to do is to either create a new email address and change my profile (and miss important messages from OfferUp) or quit OfferUp altogether. Sound right?
