When you find something on OfferUp that you want to buy, here’s how to contact the seller and arrange your purchase.
Enter your payment info and address if prompted.
You’ll see a summary of your offer and the final cost. Tap Confirm offer to send it to the seller.
If they accept, you’ll be charged and they’ll ship the item to you. How shipping works for buyers
If you’re meeting in person, inspect the item there. Get documentation or an outside inspection if needed. If you’re satisfied, go ahead and make your payment. If it isn’t exactly what you want, politely decline to buy. It’s nice to let the seller know you appreciate their time.
If you’re getting the item shipped, you have 2 days to inspect it after it’s delivered. If there are any issues with the item, like if it’s damaged or isn’t what you were expecting, see Buyer protection.
After the sale is complete, ask the seller to mark the item as sold so you can rate and review each other.
