Good marketplace to sell...Could use some added user options
When I first downloaded this app I was excited that there was a marketplace app that was perhaps a bit safer than craigslist. For example, Offer Up requires you to take a picture of your drivers license and validate your real name. That said, there are some obvious ways people can get around that. However, it did make me feel better knowing that at least they were taking my security into consideration. As with any marketplace there are potential buyers that do not follow through and since the app is not yet as popular as other marketplaces, it
does seem to take longer to get rid of some items. My main sale items are household and furniture. On a positive note, I have been able to sell several items using this app and have had positive experiences doing so.
As with any internet resale site or app, be careful and put tour safety first. I have received messages that were inappropriate on offer up from other offer up members. All in all this app is fair....it's not terrible....But again, would benefit from some simple upgrades.
Disappointing more than anything
I really likes this app when I first downloaded it but now I hardly use it anymore. I work and have a family so I got really sick of waiting my days to see if someone was really going to pick up something I had "offer up". I sell items from hundreds to 1$ so waiting my day to sell a pair of shoes for example, really got old. I have been ripped off when I attempted to do PPU. I traded something and what I got was not what I agreed to. So there is no one other than the local police to referee these issues. I know the hazards of PPU, however I don't have time to sit around and was trying something new so that I could still find deals and get them delivered or picked up. Local police does not have time to referee idiots that want to rip you off for a five dollar item so there is no security measures and you do not have to be a member of the "true you" to sell so you have no idea who you are dealing with which is quite scary especially if you're meeting someone while you were running errands with your children in the car. The app is average and works for what you need it to I guess however you can't have a life and you need someone with you at all times. I prefer sticking to the swoop swap pages or craigslist quite honestly.
LOVE this app!
This app is great! You can find amazing deals near you so fast! It's like what craigslist wishes it could be! You look through everything fast, see what you like and get it! Selling is so easy! Take a good picture, write a good description, and price item and sell! Much faster than eBay or Craigslist!!!
I love the ease of everything, ONLY thing I wish it could do is add more pictures to items *hint hint developers!* :D
ONLY complaint is that you do get some annoying messages, well if you're an attractive female I guess... I posted pictures of shoes I wanted to sell and guys were hitting me up! I agree with other reviewers that there NEEDS to be a rating system like eBay has for buyers AND sellers, to weed out the creeps and fakes! It can make users uncomfortable when having sexual advances made towards them when this IS an app that requires you to meet the people you are doing business with! What if they make a fake account and use it for something horrible?! That's scary! Also I was solicited "sexual favors" to trade for an item? No lady, no... Lol!
