How can we help you?

Selling and shipping nationwide

OfferUp lets you ship across the contiguous 48 states through the US Postal Service. For local items, you can still meet and pick up locally, just like always.

To get started fast, see Shipping for buyers, Shipping for sellers, and Get paid after shipping.

How shipping works

Sellers can make their items available for shipping by choosing Sell and ship nationwide when they list an item.

When buyers see an item they like, they can choose Ship to me, make their offer, and pay through the app.

We send sellers a pre-paid shipping label. Using this label is required, or the shipment isn't tracked and payment doesn't go out.

Eligible items

To be eligible for shipping, items must meet these criteria.

  1. Items must weigh less than 20lbs and be smaller than 108 inches in length + girth.
  2. Items must be offered for sale at a price between $1 and $500.
  3. Items must be available for immediate shipping. Items that may not be fulfilled on time, such as custom-order goods or event tickets, are not allowed.
  4. Drop-shipped items are ineligible. Drop shipping is when a seller purchases items from another retailer and directly ships to a buyer. This type of product sourcing is not allowed on OfferUp. 

Sellers are responsible for complying with all applicable laws and regulations regarding mailing. Please see the US Postal Service shipping restrictions webpage for more information.


Sellers are responsible for paying a service fee. Shipping costs are typically paid by the buyer, but may be paid by the seller. Shipping fees can vary, so the amounts are shown for each item. You'll know how much you'll pay before you buy.

Shipping is subject to the OfferUp Terms of Service.
