Just going down my Application List, Accuweather Amazon (great example, lots of specific notification toggles) Google Drive (and most Google products, as mentioned by another user) Firefox Google Photos Gmail Google Maps Gas Buddy Tinder (good exaple of having seperate settings for push notifications vs email notifications) Netflix Google Play Store Reddit (another good one) Podcast Addict (oh my god, the sweet, sweet customization in this app, of all settings including notifications) Youtube Music Youtube (another good example) This was only my home screen. I hope this illustrates my point, that basically every single app that is available offers notification customization. OfferUp is the only app on my phone in which I can not turn off unwanted notifications from the app. This range of apps have a range of customizability for their notification settings; some with tons of in depth, highly specific nit-picking, some with the bare bones "all notifications off" switch. At the very least, however, I can turn off all notifications from inside the app. There is a sweet spot between those two extremes, which I would put somewhere around Amazon, Tinder, or a Google app. Plenty of options breaking down all types of push notifications, as well as options for what gets an email notification (as that is a whole seperate issue; getting two notifications from two apps every time you get a single message is excessive and annoying). Ideally, I want to see an entire section/page in OfferUp's settings dedicated to notifications, in which there is toggles for every type of notification (message alerts, new offers, new items in your area, promotional offers, etc.), as well as either those same options, or a simple on-off toggle for all email notifications. Community Formus settings too; I am tired of getting notified both by the app and email, every time I earn a new badge or level up, or whatever. I simply do not care. That brings me nicely to my final point. I do not care about these things. All I, personally, care about, is getting notified with offers on my listings and messages. But that is not the case for everyone, as you Elin, made clear. Some people like these notifications. Some people probably want more. I dont mind if OfferUp adds a running ticker of notifications for every time anything in a fifty mile radius is posted. All I care about is having the options to turn off the things I dont want to hear. My apps are there to add function to my life, not frustration and annoyance. Please pass this up the chain. Thank you for reading. Ben.

Can we please, for the love of god, get full customization of notifications? Currently the only option is toggling newsletter notifications, but I still receive offers and updates and whatever else this app feels like pushing to my phone with its stupidly loud cha ching notification. In the help section of the app, all it says about turning notifications off is that you have to do it on your phone's end in your settings, but that disables all notifications indiscriminately. We should be able to toggle all notifications separately, and to change the notification sound to our phone's notifications. The way it is now is clearly a way to try to boost engagement with the app that is so overt I am tempted to uninstall. For the last time, OfferUp, I dont want to hear about new listings in my area, of whatever new feature you think I might care about. I know I sound crotchety, but my phone notifications are very important to me, and I do not want an app marketing to me when I am not in it, or sending me notifications that do not matter. I only want to be notified when something happens that requires my attention, and I am the only one who gets to decide that, not you OfferUp.
