EVERYONE you need to understand that you are dealing with everyday people from the communities around you. Really take that into consideration and keep your head on the swivle. Ive had pleasant and not so pleasant experiences so far with offer up. Im thrilled they have buter protection and a direct link to your account now. Much less of a problem when selling higher end items. I know my area. Have to keep on your toes or you'll be taken advatange of. Thank you offer up for helping me sell my goods in a safe fashion.
Always respond with a courteous behavior. Id never buy from someone snarky or too a matter of fact. Sometimes kindness and a little wiggle room can close your deal. I might not of sold much but the items i did sell were 300$+ after some polite banter and making your customer feel comfortable you can close the deal. When selling anything over 60$ it takes more then a post unless you have a hard to find or hot offer. Idk good old kindness goes very far. Goodluck!
Its a insult when you have something that is a good deal and someone lowballs...it is more than rude when the person messages you with just a price they think they are entitled to pay ...i have learned not to even respond to these kinds of offers...I did at first and couple times the person just wanted to be rude and argue. It bothers them when you ignore them so thats what i do...
They do that to make you mad and usually that don't even get to me I reply if your self haded u would have known the value. Never fight or start argument specially you never know you c that person who u exchanged bad words.
I am new to offer up but what I figure is it must be a meeting of the minds. What will it cost me if I decide later to replace the item. There are those who want to offer less and then take your item to resell at a more expensive amount. That is wrong... I believe fair and considerate offer is appropriate not scandalous. Hopefully both parties are happy. That's what we all want.
