About OfferUp Premium

OfferUp Premium is a paid subscription that grants you exclusive access to newly posted items, plus additional member benefits to enhance your shopping experience.

Premium benefits

Early access to new items 

Premium gives you exclusive access to all newly posted items 30 minutes ahead of non-Premium users. This lets you ask questions early and potentially buy an item before it's available to everyone. To see if you have early access to an item, look for the Premium Early Access timer on the listing. (This benefit applies to the app and web experience.)

The timer is located at the bottom of a listing and counts down from 30 minutes.

No ads. Only deals. 

Premium removes third-party advertisements from your desktop and mobile feed so that you can shop without interruption. (This benefit applies to the app and web experience.)


Items that say “Promoted” will still appear in your feed. These are not third-party ads, and clicking on them will not take you away from the OfferUp marketplace. To learn more about promoted items, see Selling faster with promotions.

Premium badging

Premium helps you get noticed by sellers. The Premium badge around your profile picture makes you more visible in the messages Inbox so you stand out from the crowd. (This benefit applies to the app experience only.)

The Premium badge is purple surrounds a user's profile picture.

Priority inbox ranking

Premium helps you get your messages seen first. Any new messages that you send to a seller are bumped to the top of the seller’s Inbox so they’re more likely to be read and responded to first. (This benefit applies to the app experience only.)
