Non-responders! People who message then NEVER message back!!!

Level 6

Hi @FerGodSakes there are always gonna be people that dont follow thru with a purchase,,,,,,,,,,no matter the price or how good of deal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,but your post explains a much talked about thing here in the forums,,,,,,,,,,,,,low offers,,,,,,,,,,,,,people make low offers,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,because there are folks that accept low offers,,,,,as much as 70 percent off.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,also not following through with a purchase does not make someone a flake,,,,,,,,,,,,maybe they were in a bad accident  and laying unconsious in the hospital,,,,,,,,,,or maybe you said something to offend them and they thought better of it,,,,,,your id you use here in the forums is very offensive to some here

Or the ones who make an offer, you accept, make appt. tell all other inquiries item is sold. They show up just to be lookers. You know this because you don’t show up in a car to buy a couch.

I hear you. I get the same issues and I just started on this platform. I always respond to questions or offers, regardless if I’m already meeting someone for a sale. I’ll have some that seem legit, but won’t respond to a meeting or some that will go through the process only to tell you they don’t have the money for it. I guess I just figure that you’ll have 20 or so tire-kickers for every legit buyer, metaphorically.
Level 10! You're a 10!

Surprisingly... have not encountered as many Lookie Loos lately.
Could be the gearing up for the Holiday Season "already"
There are definitely Tire-Kickers in every aspect of Sales!
Much Success to you 👍☺

I am incredibly frustrated with people doing that to me constantly and a lot lately. I've thought about adding in my description "serious inquiries only please please do not waste my time if you are not going to reply" it may sound rude but maybe it'll stop people from messaging me. if they don't really know for sure, that they want the item or not. I'm just absolutely fed up with it

Glad to see thats its not a big conspiracy against just me cuz thats what it was starting to feel like, and in increased numbers the last few days. Maybe we on this forum should band together to start a more exclusive platform called: Letgo of your over-clicking mouse and OfferUp some buyer's etiquette.

Totally agree! Happens to me frequently as well. I am a first with cash is the first in line seller. I tell people no holds. If it's still available when you get paid then we can meet up.
I do get far more of these people plus the no shows and lowballers on Offer Up than any other site I sell on. It is also my lowest producer as far as sales. That being said the site does increase my odds of getting a sale and some of my best sales have come via Offer Up. So, my advice is stick with it. Keep listing. Never hold an item, (an exception to that rule for me are buyers I dealt with multiple times and I know will follow through).
