Form 1099-K and tax reporting

OfferUp partners with Stripe, a secure payment processing service, to allow you to get paid for shipping sales in the app. During the calendar year, Stripe keeps track of your earnings from online sales. If you receive more than $20,000 and have over 200 transactions for the year, Stripe reports your earnings to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Stripe also sends you Form 1099-K for your income tax return. To learn more, see our FAQs below.
