Everyone in this video I wanted to show you how to use an app called to offerup to buy and sell anything now offer up is very similar to using eBay, Craigslist Facebook marketplace. Let go those are some of the competitors, but I really like offer up.

So on Craigslist on Facebook marketplace, it works the same way. So it’s. Gon na ask for your zip code, go ahead and type that in and let me show you the app really quick. Let’s. Focus on the buying part.
First, so on top here you got pickup, so those are the things that are only available for pickup and on the right side you have shipping. So those are the things that people could ship to you. So you could choose that when you sell something, is it available for pickup only or shipping only and then underneath that you could sort by newest, closest and so forth, and you can set the price minimum and maximum so that’s? What’s going on on top here on the bottom, you have your home, which is the page I’m on now.
Next to it is your inbox! So when you get messages they’ll show up here. Let’s, jump in all the way to the right. This is your sign-in or login, so you have to sign in or log in here to start making these transactions.

So if you are searching for cell phones, for example, it’s, just gonna look at that category and show you items under that category here. So again you have pickup and shipping as your options, but that Square tab is category popular near me.

Gon na give you some options. Let’s say I wanted to buy iPhone X. I could go ahead and search for that and then I could browse through some of these. As always, I could click one. I could read it. I could see the price I could see where it’s located, and this one is gonna be able to ship for five dollars, and I could just go ahead and jump in and make an offer.
Even if I wanted to make an offer for $ 400, I could just do that. I send that offer. I’m gonna cancel and since I already have something for sale, so if I go to the dollar sign you see, selling and buying.
These are the things that I have under my categories. I could now, if I wanted to sell another thing: press the camera icon on the bottom, that’s. The one I haven’t covered yet go ahead and press the camera icon, and it takes you to that selling page that we already went through so taking a picture, selecting a picture, giving it a title, and so on that’s.
