Do Sold items disappear on OfferUp?

Yes, sold items do disappear on OfferUp. When a buyer purchases an item it is automatically marked as sold and will no longer appear in the list of available items. If a buyer backs out of a purchase, then the item may reappear.

After an item has been marked as sold, the item can no longer be messaged, commented on, or viewed. Additionally, once an item has been marked as sold, the item’s location and contact information will no longer show.

As a seller, it’s important that you mark an item as sold after completing the transaction to ensure it is no longer visible to buyers.

Why is OfferUp charging me to post?

OfferUp charges users a fee to post in order to help cover the cost of running the platform and bringing buyers and sellers together. OffeUp is a marketplace for anyone to list items for sale, and since members don’t have to pay a subscription or membership fee, the platform needs to generate revenue in a different way.

The money from the fees helps keep OfferUp running and provide its users with an ever-evolving selection of items to buy and sell. This fee also helps cover the money spent on marketing, payments and fraud prevention efforts which help ensure the safety of buyers and sellers.

So, by charging a reasonable fee to post, OfferUp is able to offer users a safe and easy way to buy and sell items on their platform.

How much does OfferUp take from your sales?

OfferUp takes a 15% commission on most sales. For high-priced items, they take a 10% commission up to $500 and a flat fee of $50 above $500. For vehicles, they charge a flat fee of $99. For any sales over $1,000, they have a “Bottom Line Price” which is the seller’s listed price minus OfferUp’s commission.

Buyers never see the actual listing price that you are offering, only the Bottom Line Price. All applicable taxes and fees will be collected from the buyers and added in as part of the Bottom Line Price.

Sellers are still responsible for any applicable taxes and fees for their sales.

What is shadow Ban OfferUp?

Shadow ban on OfferUp is a feature of the app to help protect both buyers and sellers. It works by reducing the visibility of specific users on the OfferUp marketplace. When a user is shadowbanned, their listings will still be visible to them and to their followers, but they won’t show up in searches or in other users’ feeds.

This limits their access to the marketplace’s larger audience, preventing them from potentially engaging in malicious or unwanted behavior. The purpose of the shadow ban is to reduce the risk of fraud and other harmful activities within the marketplace, ensuring the safety and security of all OfferUp users.
