I agree wholeheartedly, I couldnt even tell you how many times ive told people when talking about OfferUp that ir seems like the very name of this app alone tends to make prospective buyers think that they can just offer any obsurd amount of money for any given item they're bidding on. I also oft mentioned while on subject that Craigslist never seemed to be nearly as bad. When i first started on offerup i almost stopped posting items to sell just as fast, within a couple of weeks or so i noticed almost every offer i received was an insulting fraction of my items worth. But i kept going, i just stopped responding to ridiculous offers, i tried using. "Firm on price" feature, bjt that seamed to reduce the offers way too much. Things have gotten better as community has developed though. The other day however, a guy offered me 20 bucks for a brand new pair of Ray Ban Clubmaster frames which I have listed for $75, which is less than half of the retail of the item, and being brand new seems more than fair to me. The $20 offered seemed obsurd, even laughable, and I thought to myself oh boy here we go again! But as ive sajd, the issue of being loballed has gotten somewhat better at least in my experience. I strongly encourage those of you who are the more seasoned offerup sellers to share any tips, ideas you may have with the rest of the community as to how to deal with and overcome the issu of loballing. Thanks everyone and good luck on offerup selling your items!
