According to wiki, OfferUp enables users to buy and sell everything from furniture and electronics to cars and boats through its free mobile app for Android and iOS. It is a classified online store where buyers and sellers meet to transact business. I can say OfferUp, craigslist and the likes are to the USA what olx.com and jiji.ng is to Nigeria. Today, I will discuss a topic that would benefit new users of offerUp both within and outside the USA. And that is how to Verify OfferUp mobile number easily.
What is offerup and how can you make money off it?
Before we delve into how we can Verify OfferUp mobile number easily, let us learn a little about what offerup offers. To begin with, both sellers and buyers residing in the USA can benefit from offerup. You can sell your old belongings which you could otherwise have trashed. On the part of the buyers, they can get used quality items for cheap.
Don’t mix this up as you can also buy brand new items on this site. Many of the items sold on this site are cheaper than what is obtainable on big sites like eBay. Instead of buying from the world on eBay, or scanning through the headline descriptions on Craiglist, OfferUp is a more local, more image-friendly mobile-only marketplace.
OfferUp is making waves as a mobile-only hybrid between Craigslist and eBay — and so far, users are loving it. For those who leave outside of the USA, I will teach you how to open and maintain an offerup account as a trusted member.

How can I operate an offerup.com account if I am not leaving in the USA?
It is very possible for you to own a verified offerup account outside the USA. this is the same way people are running eBay and PayPay account from outside the USA. Must only the Americans enjoy every, every?. No way. All you need to do is to get a USA line(visit my post here for help). Secondly, you need a strong VPN. I use vyprVPN and it has never failed for once.
Finally, and most importantly, you need a contact in the USA. If you have nobody there, who will help you pick up and ship the items you bought off offeup? Do your solo research on this. There are a lot of trusted agents in the USA who can help you handle your shipping logistics from the USA to Nigeria for a token. Alsway have it in mind that the likes of offerup, letgo,craiglist(just like the Nigerian Jiji and olx) are best for USED items. Amazon remains the best online relatil store for new items.
