Offerup is an online marketplace with an emphasis on in-person transactions. It lets customers deal directly with customers and is a C2C based platform. It is similar to Craigslist and Ebay but the company has been focusing on delivering a better mobile app experience. Offerup was launched in 2011 with the aim to compete with big names like Craigslist, Ebay and Facebook Marketplace. By 2016, the company had raised $221M USD and was valued at more than $1B USD. The company had 33 Million active users as of Oct 2017.
The main purpose of the app is to facilitate purchasing and selling of goods and make the process easier. Offerup helps you find the product you are looking for at the nearest distance. This is done to encourage in-person transactions and avoid fraud. Payment for the product can be done through Cash or by using the payment options in the app. Offerup also has a ‘bump’ service which brings your product to the top by paying a nominal fee.
