OfferUp Review

OfferUp is a mobile trading marketplace. Founded in April 2011 by Nick Huzar, today, the application competes with such large players on the market as Craiglist, eBay, and Facebook Marketplace. As the main operating zone of OfferUp is English-speaking countries, it available to download only in English. Users can access the platform through the browser or Android/iOS applications that are completely free to download and install.

Design and Usability 10/10

The application’s interface is very similar to other marketplace apps operated on the market, as all of them are using similar design patterns. On the main page, there is the Pinterest-like picture layout where you can scroll the page up and down to find the desired item. Once you click the photo, you will be automatically redirected to the product’s page. Here, you can view other photos, read reviews, and other essential information about the item. Also, from this page, you can go to the purchase. All navigation is very simple and intuitive. You do not need so much time to figure out how OfferUp works as, again, the design implements best practices for the marketplace applications’ interfaces.

Key Functions 10/10

OfferUp serves as a middle-man and a platform that connects buyers and sellers: every user can become a buyer as well as a seller. With an easy-to-use interface, you can search for items by their name, category, or a seller. By the way, there are products from dozens of different categories, including furniture, electronics, shoes, jewelry, and so on. Interested in the product, but the description does not contain all the information you need? So, you can chat with the seller without leaving the application. And if turn on the notification, OfferUp will note you about the new messages.

In addition, to a search by names, sellers, and categories, you can view the map and explore the items that are sold near you. Each user has a rating and feedback on the platform. Therefore, before purchasing, you can read it.

Security & App Purchases 9/10

OfferUp will require you to grant them the basic permissions, such as reading your phone book, get the information about the current location, read the media files, take pictures from your device, and so on. To read the full list, please, go to the app’s download page and click ‘Permission’ in the Additional information section. Also, here you can find the link to Privacy Policy.

OfferUp is completely free to download, install, and use. But if you are a seller and want to promote your products, then you need to purchase the ads.

Conclusion

This application is one of the largest marketplaces for buying and selling different items. You can explore the products near you, or search them by a name, seller, or a category. OfferUp is a completely free app and available on the iOS and Android platforms. At the time of writing, OfferUp has more than 10 million installs on Google Play only.
