OfferUp partners with Stripe, a secure payment processing service, to allow you to get paid for shipping sales in the app. In order to process your payments, Stripe collects your personal data via the OfferUp app.
Examples of personal data that Stripe collects include:
- Legal name (no nicknames or business names allowed)
- Date of birth
- Debit card or bank account information
- Government-issued photo ID
- Social Security Number
Providing your taxpayer information
Periodically, Stripe will ask you to provide your Social Security Number (SSN) and your current address via the OfferUp app. Stripe is required by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to collect this data for tax reporting purposes. To learn more, see Form 1099-K and tax reporting.
Submitting your data through secure notifications
OfferUp will send you a notification (by email or in the app) any time that Stripe requires your personal information or needs to validate your data. For your safety, only submit the requested information through the secure email or in-app notification; never provide it by text or over the phone.
