If an item of yours takes a while to find the right buyer, you can list it on OfferUp for as long as you like.
At the same time, when buyers have a good experience, you’ll have more serious potential buyers looking at your items. With this in mind, our system looks for older items with several unanswered messages. Sometimes sellers forget about older listings, which can be confusing for buyers.
You might choose to ignore low-price offers, or questions that don’t seem serious. This is fine. Keep your item up, and let us know you haven’t forgotten about it.
What can you do about an older listing?
- Answer a message. Even if you need to encourage buyers to make an offer closer to your asking price, or remind them that you’re only looking at serious inquiries, it’s helpful if you keep an eye on your messages.
- Archive it. If you think it might be better to try again later with selling the item, you can archive it now and then unarchive it any time you like.
- Mark it sold. Did you sell the item on OfferUp or somewhere else and forget to update the listing? Mark it sold and you won’t have to think about it again.
