I've been using the "Offer Up" website (AP) now for about 3 months. I've decided after this time period that IT JUST ISN'T WORTH THE AGRRAVATION!
You post items ont this site and it seems easy enough, then you begin to get numerous ridiculous offers on your items (usually less than half your asking price is standard). When you politely decline these ridiculous offers, people begin to send you rude messages telling you how worthless you item is AND THEN, they start to "stalk you" by making absolutely ridiculous offers on EVERYTHING ELSE you have listed for sale. YES, these people can see everything you're selling and because their pissed off you won't sell your item for pennies on the dollar, they start offering pennies for all the rest of your things. Also, you list your item, people make offers (sometimes they are acceptable) AND THEN after you reply back telling them you will accept their offer, you never hear from them again.
Or they ask you a question about your item, you answer the question quicker like they suggest and then "no other response." There's ABSOLUTELY NO recourse for people placing a bid and not following through. Nothing, Zip, Nodda, just more frustration. When you complain that someone is harassing you, you can jump through hoops to get that person blocked, but it's sooooo easy to re-register the harassment continues until you get fed up and remove the item. Management will quickly send you an apology email ( Don't expect a personal email, it computer generized) that says the EXACT SAME THING EVERYTIME!!
My advise in this site: If you are going to consider using this site, understand this site is basically like throwing your stuff out on the driveway for a yard sale and just taking pennies to get rid of it.
You WILL NEVER GET what something is worth, NEVER!!
So I'm fed up after 2-3 months and I'm sticking with craigslist. Sure there's a chance you will get "robbed or carjacked", but that's a small price to pay to keep from being harassed and low balled by using "offer up."
