Send a Community MeetUp Spot
OfferUp partners with local businesses and police stations to create Community MeetUp Spots. These spots are brightly lit and have video cameras. They’re great places to meet someone to inspect items and complete sales.
When you’re looking up a location in the OfferUp app, you’ll see these MeetUp Spots on the map as blue pin icons, like these:

Tips for meeting
- Don't want to meet at a MeetUp Spot? Meet at a well-lit public location with lots of people around, like a cafe or shopping mall.
- If you're buying a large item, bring a friend to help lift it.
- When leaving for your location, use OfferUp messages to tell the other person you're on your way.
- If you're running late, let the other person know.
