    I have messaged about 7 sellers about items I was really interested in, and not one responds back. Does anyone else have that issue on Offer Up?

    The sellers probably getting more than a few of them and getting tired of the "run around" that seems to happen
    with these offers..or the offer is really a low ball:shrug:

    I didn't even make an offer, I wanted to go and buy it. How do these sellers expect to sell anything if they don't respond?

    Some sellers just don't respond. If you message a bunch of sellers with recent listings and they don't respond, it's possible that you may have been shadow banned. Everything would look normal on your end, but your messages don't actually get sent. I have heard of this happening and it is unfortunately all but impossible to reverse, even if you didn't actually do anything wrong.

    Shadow banned? You know, I tried listing one thing, and I don't know what happened, the listing was removed. No notice, nothing. I couldn't find it.

    I don't know what "offer up" is so at the risk of running off-topic.. I'll say forums classifieds is the best place to buy/sell I've encountered. You almost always meet likeminded people, who are excited about the transaction.

    But I've also bought/sold on fb marketplace/ebay/etc. And as bad as it is for a buyer to "ghost" you, I get it.. sometimes people's eyes are bigger than their wallets. But sometimes a seller will "ghost" you, and that baffles me. You took the time to research an appropriate price, take pics, find the forum to list item.. and then list it. And then you ignore an offer to purchase item at said price, or a reasonable compromise? Blows my mind. I think some people like the idea of a marketplace, but are intimidated by the reality of it.

    So I emailed customer support at Offer Up, and this is the generic response I get:

    Hi,

    Thank you for reaching out and apologies for the trouble you've encountered.

    It appears a technical issue caused your account to enter a locked state. We’ve made some changes that have resolved the issue.

    Again, apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    Good luck buying and selling!

    I'm still not getting responses back from sellers. I doubt they are even getting my messages. Oh well....Craigslist it is.
