Better than Craigslist to buy and sell used goods

Better than Craigslist to buy and sell used goods

Buying and selling used stuff is a great way to save money or put a little extra cash in your pocket. But, sites like eBay can load you up with expensive shipping costs. And, local sites like Craigslist can feel unsafe. If those are your concerns, you need to visit this site that'll help you save on shipping by finding quality used goods right in your neck of the woods. The website also verifies sellers' identities to make you feel safer about your transaction.

Buying is really easy with OfferUp. If you like something, just click on it to be taken to the item page. From there, you can make an offer or set up a time to meet and take a look at the item.

You'll see the price the owner is asking for next to the item, but you might be able to talk them down. If the seller accepts your offer, you can set up a time and place to meet up and get your stuff.

Selling is simple, too. Using the app, you can take a picture of the item you want to sell, add details like your asking price and upload it. The whole process is done in no time. If someone makes an offer or needs to ask you a question, you'll see notifications pop up right on your gadget.

OfferUp also has a mechanism to verify buyer and seller identities. The TruYou system works with the app. It lets you scan in your ID, so the service can verify your identity for other users on the site. Items sold by TruYou verified sellers will be highlighted in blue.

There's also a rating system, so buyers and sellers can let the rest of the community know what they thought about a transaction. Was your item described accurately? Was the other person friendly? This is the place to let everyone know what to expect from other users.
