Zip codes and the whole country being able to message you

Level 1
Can somebody please help me with how I can narrow down my zip code selling radius? I am getting messages from people from the opposite side of the country and its getting crazy annoying. I cant ship a china cabinet to you at the other end of the country, sorry. I thought this was supposed to be for people in your own area? I dont mind shipping items to people as I have once before; although it doesnt ask me that option anymore weirdly enough, but big items being shipped to people is absolutely ridiculous. My acct says the correct city and zip....help please -__-

@Madds03 welcome to the OfferUp Community forum,

Madds03 When your posting items you should see the option to toggle shipping or no shipping, if your not seeing that option I would recommend contacting customer care,

If your still interested in shipping it’s going to give people nationwide shipping option,
That being said,
if you still want to shipping you could post your limit for your shipping area in your description in your posts.

What’s the zip code in your posts saying?
If the zip code isn’t correct, here’s the information below,

@Madds03, Welcome to Community Forum, I try to figure out maybe when you post items last next ti last step where it asking you for shipping feature. There is that little box, it auto check, up right hand corner. Please uncheck that will let you deal with local area pick up only other it go thru nation wide shipping. Have you check it out? This easy fix but if it not then my second option referred contact customer care on your app.
