OfferUp is popular as an online mobile-first C2C marketplace with more importance on in-person transactions. OfferUp was founded as a competitor to Craigslist and differentiates itself with mobile-friendly apps and user profiles with ratings. The platform facilitates the buying and selling of used goods. OfferUp has been optimized for smartphones and features large photos of products for sale through an infinite scroll interface. In terms of buyers, products are shown on the basis of the geo-location closest to the buyer and help encourage face-to-face user interactions and community-centric relationships and can also be filtered by category, price and distance. In terms of sellers, products are instantly listed by uploading a photo from a user’s smartphone or computer.
The platform provides a ‘bump’ feature that allows you to move the item to the top of the queue for better visibility at a nominal fee. Transactions are done by cash or OfferUp’s in-app payment platform. The product team of OfferUp puts more focus on removing ‘friction’ and making transactions as seamless as possible for buyers as well as sellers. The platform has ongoing partnerships with local police stations and a few California Ralph’s locations for establishing well-trafficked and well-monitored Community MeetUp Sports for transactions to take place properly.
OfferUp has a wide range of products. If you love playing video games, then its for sure that you love PS5. Well, you can also purchase PS5 in this platform. But the question is can you trust this platform in terms of purchasing a PS5. Well for that, we need to go through some user reviews.
A user said that he messaged a seller who was selling a PS5. He checked and made sure that the seller’s account is verified and saw that there were three positive reviews. The pictures that were posted also looked legit since he was using his PS5 to model it and he said that the one he wishes to sell is sealed properly. The seller was also ready to negotiate in terms of pricing. When the user agreed to purchase the product, the seller said that he won’t ship through the app. Well, this really sounds fishy. Let me tell you that many users have posted their reviews related to the site, especially the users who purchased PS5 but the question of doubt here is that the users said that they received their product very soon. A few people are of the opinion that these might be the influencers or journalists who have early access to the product.
So, if I have a look at the user reviews, definitely you cannot trust the site completely if you are planning to purchase a PS5. Afterall, you would pay something for purchasing PS5 and you don’t want to lose anything by receiving a damaged product or not getting the product at all. Well, my recommendation is to try other websites or the best thing you can do is directly purchase PS5 from an offline store.
