Shipping and getting paid

SOLVED
Neighbor
When an offer is accepted and a shipping label is sent. Does the shipping label come with prepaid shipping or do I need to pay the shipping and wait for reimbursement?

Thank you for the help

Shipping label provided by Offerup is prepaid. The buyer paid for the shipping.

This seems really strange to me. “ I send an item to a buyer, then wait to get paid”!!!!!!!????????
Tons of potential to get ripped off

When shipping, the buyer's funds are HELD by OfferUp in an escrow account, so by the time you are issued the shipping label, the buyer's payment is in OU's hands.

 

Majority of the "not getting paid" complaints is based on the fact that the money transfer from OU's payment processor to the seller takes too long (mainly for the  the FIRST shipped transaction).

I’m in the same boat. I have shipped and the seller has received his item and happy. Why is my payment being delayed. I would have never have shipped and may never use this service again. Not happy

I am new to the platform. I had a user message me with an offer. I told them this was agreeable. What is the next step? I can’t figure out how to sell the item to that person.

Is it local or shipped? If local set up a meeting time and place and exchange money for the item. If shipped, accept the offer and ship the item.
I understand sometimes it can get backed up but this was been well over two or three months ago that I shipped it and it and it got delivered and it says that they are received my payment but I have not I think two or three months is a little ridiculous to have to wait on your money
