00:00:00 00:00:03 offer up is a great marketplace that i
00:00:02 00:00:05 used to cross-post
00:00:03 00:00:07 a lot of my listings when i would resell
00:00:05 00:00:09 things like liquidation cashback
00:00:07 00:00:10 and coupon products because it was just
00:00:09 00:00:11 another potential marketplace where i
00:00:10 00:00:13 would get
00:00:11 00:00:15 sales you know for little work or
00:00:13 00:00:16 practikally no work for inventory i
00:00:15 00:00:19 already had right
00:00:16 00:00:21 and so it hit me you know recently like
00:00:19 00:00:22 why don't i also try to drop ship on
00:00:21 00:00:24 offer up with
00:00:22 00:00:26 a lot of the proven listings that i have
00:00:24 00:00:28 on facebook marketplace for example
00:00:26 00:00:30 and it's been working fairly well okay
00:00:28 00:00:31 the issue with drop shipping on offer up
00:00:30 00:00:33 and i'm going to show you completely how
00:00:31 00:00:35 to do it from a to z
00:00:33 00:00:36 in this actual lecture there are some
00:00:35 00:00:38 issues with it there are some kind of
00:00:36 00:00:39 hiccups and speed bumps along the way
00:00:38 00:00:40 that you
00:00:39 00:00:42 need to know kind of how to navigate
00:00:40 00:00:43 through it's not that big of a deal
00:00:42 00:00:45 there are some things that are going to
00:00:43 00:00:46 be challenging but if you know good
00:00:45 00:00:48 workarounds
00:00:46 00:00:50 you can drop ship effectively on
00:00:48 00:00:51 off-road okay so it's basically just
00:00:50 00:00:52 another platform
00:00:51 00:00:54 where you can put your drop shipping
00:00:52 00:00:55 listings to make more money make more
00:00:54 00:00:57 sales
00:00:55 00:00:59 you know potentially get other customers
00:00:57 00:01:00 that might not be on sites like poshmark
00:00:59 00:01:03 or facebook marketplace
00:01:00 00:01:06 or mercari or amazon or ebay right
00:01:03 00:01:07 and it's really just another opportunity
00:01:06 00:01:08 for you to make more sales and profit
00:01:07 00:01:11 with little to no
00:01:08 00:01:12 extra work on your part okay so before
00:01:11 00:01:14 we get into the actual video and i show
00:01:12 00:01:16 you how to drop ship on offer up
00:01:14 00:01:17 what i do want to tok about is the fact
00:01:16 00:01:19 that one of the main issues we're going
00:01:17 00:01:20 to tok about in this video with drop
00:01:19 00:01:22 shipping on offer up
00:01:20 00:01:23 is that you're only able to really list
00:01:22 00:01:25 on your phone
00:01:23 00:01:27 until now right they only want you to
00:01:25 00:01:28 list on your phone but yesterday it
00:01:27 00:01:30 wasn't yesterday's video but the last
00:01:28 00:01:31 video on this channel i'll drop it at
00:01:30 00:01:32 the bottom of the description
00:01:31 00:01:34 so you can watch it after this video if
00:01:32 00:01:36 you want i actually show you how to list
00:01:34 00:01:38 on offer up from your computer
00:01:36 00:01:40 using an emulator okay so watch this
00:01:38 00:01:42 drop shipping on offer up video and then
00:01:40 00:01:44 it will be easier to actually do so and
00:01:42 00:01:46 move your listings over faster
00:01:44 00:01:47 when you do it from the computer so
00:01:46 00:01:48 without further ado let's just jump into
00:01:47 00:01:50 the computer
00:01:48 00:01:52 and i'll show you all the nuances and
00:01:50 00:01:52 things to avoid with drop shipping on
00:01:52 00:01:55 offroad
00:01:52 00:01:56 offer up is a uh an app and a website
00:01:55 00:01:59 where you can basically buy
00:01:56 00:02:00 sell you know trade local things it
00:01:59 00:02:01 started that way almost like a
00:02:00 00:02:03 craigslist right
00:02:01 00:02:05 but they introduced the shipping option
00:02:03 00:02:06 fairly recently i want to say it was
00:02:05 00:02:08 like a year ago-ish
00:02:06 00:02:10 um and there's still not that many
00:02:08 00:02:11 sellers on it but i do make sales on
00:02:10 00:02:13 offer up so
00:02:11 00:02:15 while the sales velocity really isn't up
00:02:13 00:02:16 to par with like a in amazon obviously
00:02:15 00:02:18 or an ebay or poshmark or
00:02:16 00:02:20 mercari or clearly a facebook
00:02:18 00:02:20 marketplace you're gonna make sales
00:02:20 00:02:22 there
00:02:20 00:02:23 it's not very difficult to list there
00:02:22 00:02:25 you can do it very very quickly and if
00:02:23 00:02:26 you find a winning product on facebook
00:02:25 00:02:28 marketplace for example if you're
00:02:26 00:02:29 selling a lot on facebook marketplace
00:02:28 00:02:31 for the product
00:02:29 00:02:33 well chances are if you also list that
00:02:31 00:02:35 product if it fits other marketplaces on
00:02:33 00:02:36 a marketplace like offer up it's also
00:02:35 00:02:37 potentially going to sell what they'll
00:02:36 00:02:40 uh well
00:02:37 00:02:41 there too okay so offer up is a great
00:02:40 00:02:43 opportunity
00:02:41 00:02:45 to also you know list on another
00:02:43 00:02:45 platform make more sales on another
00:02:45 00:02:47 platform
00:02:45 00:02:49 you know communicate a different product
00:02:47 00:02:51 to a different type of buyer
00:02:49 00:02:52 that may not be on facebook on again
00:02:51 00:02:54 another platform okay
00:02:52 00:02:55 now before we get into actually how to
00:02:54 00:02:57 do it right
00:02:55 00:02:59 it's pretty self-explanatory you can
00:02:57 00:03:01 download the uh the app or the
00:02:59 00:03:03 website obviously and then list from
00:03:01 00:03:05 both i'm going to tok about
00:03:03 00:03:07 how you can actually do so there are two
00:03:05 00:03:08 main issues with drop shipping on offer
00:03:07 00:03:10 up and well really there's three
00:03:08 00:03:10 actually i just didn't add the other one
00:03:10 00:03:12 okay
00:03:10 00:03:14 so the main issues with drop shipping on
00:03:12 00:03:16 offer up first and foremost
00:03:14 00:03:18 is they only want you to list from your
00:03:16 00:03:21 phone okay so if you go to the website
00:03:18 00:03:22 and you try to list it or post something
00:03:21 00:03:24 it's going to tell you to download the
00:03:22 00:03:25 app and i've actually reached out to
00:03:24 00:03:27 their support and said like
00:03:25 00:03:29 hey like i i'm a reseller i i think
00:03:27 00:03:30 offer up's really promising i want a
00:03:29 00:03:32 list on offer up
00:03:30 00:03:34 uh but it it's so much easier for me to
00:03:32 00:03:35 list on offer up from the computer
00:03:34 00:03:36 because i can copy and paste everything
00:03:35 00:03:38 that i already have
00:03:36 00:03:40 over to offer up because i list and sell
00:03:38 00:03:41 on a number of other platforms and i
00:03:40 00:03:43 want to bring my business and all my
00:03:41 00:03:45 listings to offer up to make sales
00:03:43 00:03:46 and obviously give more value to your
00:03:45 00:03:48 marketplace but like if you're gonna
00:03:46 00:03:50 make me list from the phone it's very
00:03:48 00:03:51 very it's not worth my time in a lot of
00:03:50 00:03:53 ways right so that's a main
00:03:51 00:03:54 issue and they've obviously said that
00:03:53 00:03:56 currently right now
00:03:54 00:03:58 their main focus is only listing from
00:03:56 00:03:59 the app they think it differentiates
00:03:58 00:04:02 themselves
00:03:59 00:04:04 and the it's kind of like a i guess a
00:04:02 00:04:06 buffer for you know people that are
00:04:04 00:04:08 going to abuse it a little bit like we
00:04:06 00:04:08 we would be with drop shipping and just
00:04:08 00:04:10 listing like
00:04:08 00:04:12 you know hundreds or thousands of
00:04:10 00:04:14 listings right so currently they only
00:04:12 00:04:15 really want you to list from your phone
00:04:14 00:04:17 although i
00:04:15 00:04:18 also know of a workaround clearly where
00:04:17 00:04:20 you can use an
00:04:18 00:04:22 emulator that is going to basically
00:04:20 00:04:25 something that you can download to
00:04:22 00:04:27 emulate a mobile version on your desktop
00:04:25 00:04:28 computer or your laptop computer so that
00:04:27 00:04:30 you can then copy
00:04:28 00:04:32 and paste a lot easier okay now the
00:04:30 00:04:33 second one that i actually forgot to put
00:04:32 00:04:35 in here right
00:04:33 00:04:36 is that you can't with it with a
00:04:35 00:04:38 software like z drop for example it
00:04:36 00:04:41 copies listings to
00:04:38 00:04:42 mainly facebook marketplace also etsy
00:04:41 00:04:44 and they've slowly started to introduce
00:04:42 00:04:46 copying listings to mercari and the
00:04:44 00:04:47 poshmark which obviously makes it so
00:04:46 00:04:48 much easier
00:04:47 00:04:50 because you can with a click of a button
00:04:48 00:04:52 just copy and paste your listing to a
00:04:50 00:04:53 different marketplace very very easily
00:04:52 00:04:55 right
00:04:53 00:04:56 another software like list perfectly
00:04:55 00:04:58 which is a multi-channel listing
00:04:56 00:05:00 software where you can basically take a
00:04:58 00:05:01 listing from facebook and post it to a
00:05:00 00:05:03 number of other places right
00:05:01 00:05:05 or for example if you have a listing on
00:05:03 00:05:06 poshmark already you can cross-post that
00:05:05 00:05:07 same listing with a click of a button to
00:05:06 00:05:09 facebook
00:05:07 00:05:10 and then to mercari and then to depop
00:05:09 00:05:12 and then to other places
00:05:10 00:05:14 but the issue with offer up is offer up
00:05:12 00:05:15 doesn't integrate with any software
00:05:14 00:05:17 because you're not allowed to list on
00:05:15 00:05:19 the computer right so you can't use the
00:05:17 00:05:20 drop to a list to offer up with a click
00:05:19 00:05:22 of a button
00:05:20 00:05:24 and you can't also cross post to offer
00:05:22 00:05:25 up because the software like lists
00:05:24 00:05:27 perfectly which is a multi-channel
00:05:25 00:05:28 listing software where you can move your
00:05:27 00:05:30 listings from
00:05:28 00:05:31 marketplace to marketplace very very
00:05:30 00:05:32 easily again doesn't integrate with
00:05:31 00:05:34 offer
00:05:32 00:05:35 okay so that's the second one that i
00:05:34 00:05:37 actually forgot to add here but there's
00:05:35 00:05:39 really three main issues i only listed
00:05:37 00:05:40 two that's the second okay
00:05:39 00:05:42 so the third is the next one that you
00:05:40 00:05:44 need to use an offer up label a lot like
00:05:42 00:05:46 poshmark okay so you need to use the
00:05:44 00:05:47 offer up label to ship to the customer
00:05:46 00:05:50 okay
00:05:47 00:05:52 and that is you know kind of a hindrance
00:05:50 00:05:54 uh because you can't use you can't
00:05:52 00:05:55 literally order from your supplier
00:05:54 00:05:56 directly to the customer
00:05:55 00:05:58 unless you do a little workaround like
00:05:56 00:06:00 i'm gonna show you here and so
00:05:58 00:06:02 you either need to do one of two things
00:06:00 00:06:04 okay so those are the main issues
00:06:02 00:06:06 with the offer up and drop shipping okay
00:06:04 00:06:07 you need to do one of two things to make
00:06:06 00:06:10 this work because remember like i said
00:06:07 00:06:12 you need to use the offer up label okay
00:06:10 00:06:13 so you need to either when you list on
00:06:12 00:06:15 offer up and then make a sale you either
00:06:13 00:06:16 need to do something like i've deemed
00:06:15 00:06:18 which is drop ship
00:06:16 00:06:20 arbitrage and i've done dropship
00:06:18 00:06:21 arbitrage for like a year now on offer
00:06:20 00:06:23 up and on poshmark
00:06:21 00:06:24 and before i was actually drop shipping
00:06:23 00:06:26 on mercari i was also dropped doing drop
00:06:24 00:06:28 ship arbitrage on mercari
00:06:26 00:06:29 but obviously now you can use your own
00:06:28 00:06:30 your own labels on mercari so you don't
00:06:29 00:06:33 need to do that
00:06:30 00:06:34 but with offer up and poshmark you do
00:06:33 00:06:35 need to use their labels to ship and so
00:06:34 00:06:38 you need to do
00:06:35 00:06:39 one of these two things either use
00:06:38 00:06:41 dropship arbitrage which is basically
00:06:39 00:06:42 when you make a sale you order that
00:06:41 00:06:45 product to your house first
00:06:42 00:06:46 in this case specifically you need to
00:06:45 00:06:48 use a supplier that's going to
00:06:46 00:06:50 obviously have fast handling times so a
00:06:48 00:06:52 supplier and a product right
00:06:50 00:06:54 a supplier and a product that has fast
00:06:52 00:06:55 handling times and fast shipping time so
00:06:54 00:06:57 that it's going to get to you
00:06:55 00:06:58 within two to three days because you
00:06:57 00:06:59 need to ship out within two to three
00:06:58 00:07:01 days on offer up so
00:06:59 00:07:03 if you list for example an amazon prime
00:07:01 00:07:04 product and you order that amazon prime
00:07:03 00:07:06 product to you
00:07:04 00:07:08 well it's gonna get to you in most cases
00:07:06 00:07:10 uh within a two days right because
00:07:08 00:07:11 amazon prime's free two-day shipping and
00:07:10 00:07:12 a lot of times now it's free one day
00:07:11 00:07:14 shipping so
00:07:12 00:07:15 for me exam for example like when i used
00:07:14 00:07:16 to do this heavily i would list products
00:07:15 00:07:17 with
00:07:16 00:07:20 prime it would come to my house like the
00:07:17 00:07:21 next day if not like a day later and
00:07:20 00:07:22 then i would literally just package it
00:07:21 00:07:24 up with the offer up label
00:07:22 00:07:26 and then bam ship it out to the customer
00:07:24 00:07:27 okay so you can do drop ship arbitrage
00:07:26 00:07:28 which is when you make a sale on offer
00:07:27 00:07:30 up from your listing
00:07:28 00:07:32 you order that product to you first and
00:07:30 00:07:33 then you use the offer up label to ship
00:07:32 00:07:36 it to the customer
00:07:33 00:07:38 which is drop ship arbitrage okay so you
00:07:36 00:07:40 just add the the extra step where you
00:07:38 00:07:40 order it to you but again you're not
00:07:40 00:07:42 paying for
00:07:40 00:07:44 the shipping here so it's not adding any
00:07:42 00:07:45 other cost to you it's just adding an
00:07:44 00:07:46 extra step
00:07:45 00:07:48 in there because you're going to charge
00:07:46 00:07:49 the buyer for shipping okay or you're
00:07:48 00:07:50 just going to mark your price up a
00:07:49 00:07:52 little bit more or whatever right
00:07:50 00:07:54 or you can do what a lot of other people
00:07:52 00:07:56 do which is what i'm testing out a lot
00:07:54 00:07:57 lately so i still do the dropship
00:07:56 00:07:59 arbitrage because it's proven it works
00:07:57 00:08:01 it adds another step in there so you
00:07:59 00:08:02 obviously do need to drop them off i
00:08:01 00:08:04 like the post office or in like a post
00:08:02 00:08:05 office bin or something like that which
00:08:04 00:08:07 is not a big deal at all
00:08:05 00:08:08 especially for me because i'm always out
00:08:07 00:08:10 anyway so like they're right by my house
00:08:08 00:08:11 and my apartment so like i just dropped
00:08:10 00:08:14 them in the bins
00:08:11 00:08:16 go super easy and super fast but so
00:08:14 00:08:17 you can do it the other way which is
00:08:16 00:08:18 when you make a sale on offer up you
00:08:17 00:08:20 then order
00:08:18 00:08:22 that product to the customer from your
00:08:20 00:08:23 supplier just like you would with any
00:08:22 00:08:25 other drop shipping you know
00:08:23 00:08:27 site or or any other drop shipping thing
00:08:25 00:08:28 right like you order the product
00:08:27 00:08:29 directly from your supplier to your
00:08:28 00:08:32 customer right
00:08:29 00:08:34 but then because you need to use the
00:08:32 00:08:36 offer up label
00:08:34 00:08:38 offer up needs this to see and track
00:08:36 00:08:39 their label going to the customer from
00:08:38 00:08:42 you right
00:08:39 00:08:43 so what you can do is when you make the
00:08:42 00:08:44 sale on offer up
00:08:43 00:08:46 you do the normal drop shipping right
00:08:44 00:08:47 you order the product from your supplier
00:08:46 00:08:49 to your customer
00:08:47 00:08:51 but then you also use and print out the
00:08:49 00:08:53 offer up label and ship it to the
00:08:51 00:08:54 customer as well with a thank you note
00:08:53 00:08:55 in it okay
00:08:54 00:08:56 you can use one of these basically
00:08:55 00:08:58 that's just drop shipping with a thank
00:08:56 00:09:01 you note people also do this on poshmark
00:08:58 00:09:01 really any site that makes you use their
00:09:01 00:09:03 own
00:09:01 00:09:05 uh label like a poshmark or an offer up
00:09:03 00:09:07 you can drop ship with a thank you note
00:09:05 00:09:08 some people might not like it so bear in
00:09:07 00:09:09 mind that although i haven't had too
00:09:08 00:09:11 much issues
00:09:09 00:09:13 since i've been testing it out recently
00:09:11 00:09:15 if you want to go you know
00:09:13 00:09:17 obviously less time invested but a
00:09:15 00:09:18 little you know slight risk here you
00:09:17 00:09:19 might get the occasional annoyed
00:09:18 00:09:20 customer
00:09:19 00:09:22 uh then you can go with the drop
00:09:20 00:09:23 shipping with a thank you note you can
00:09:22 00:09:25 also another way that you can kind of
00:09:23 00:09:27 mitigate your risk is like offer them
00:09:25 00:09:29 like 10 off their next order
00:09:27 00:09:30 or you know one of the ways that i
00:09:29 00:09:32 actually did this believe it or not
00:09:30 00:09:33 on poshmark for a while and then i just
00:09:32 00:09:36 kind of moved away from it
00:09:33 00:09:37 it really worked well and i had happy
00:09:36 00:09:38 customers but i just
00:09:37 00:09:40 eventually stopped because i hate to go
00:09:38 00:09:42 into the bank and getting money
00:09:40 00:09:43 what's what i would do is i would drop
00:09:42 00:09:45 shift from poshmark with a thank you
00:09:43 00:09:47 note and also put a one dollar bill in
00:09:45 00:09:48 there with like a handwritten note
00:09:47 00:09:49 which the handwritten note took me like
00:09:48 00:09:50 a minute to write i was like hey thanks
00:09:49 00:09:54 for your order like
00:09:50 00:09:55 i uh i oh my i ran out of inventory
00:09:54 00:09:56 in my warehouse because they don't know
00:09:55 00:09:57 where you're shipping it from or like
00:09:56 00:09:59 what your business is right like so i
00:09:57 00:10:00 was like i was always like
00:09:59 00:10:02 i put the handwritten thank you note in
00:10:00 00:10:04 the poshmark envelope
00:10:02 00:10:05 um with the poshmark label right same
00:10:04 00:10:06 thing goes with the offer up you can do
00:10:05 00:10:07 that as well
00:10:06 00:10:09 and what i would do is i'd write a
00:10:07 00:10:10 handwritten note send them a one dollar
00:10:09 00:10:12 bill
00:10:10 00:10:14 and literally be like uh hey like i
00:10:12 00:10:16 apologize i ran out of inventory in my
00:10:14 00:10:16 warehouse but i have inventory in amazon
00:10:16 00:10:18 or
00:10:16 00:10:20 in walmart or wherever you're you're

00:10:43 00:10:46 happy they got a free dollar so
00:10:45 00:10:47 basically they got a dollar off their
00:10:46 00:10:48 order
00:10:47 00:10:49 you could do any number of things with
00:10:48 00:10:51 it i'm just kind of spitballing here
00:10:49 00:10:52 that's what i used to do on poshmark a
00:10:51 00:10:53 couple months ago and it worked very
00:10:52 00:10:54 well
00:10:53 00:10:56 i got a lot of love notes which if
00:10:54 00:10:57 you're unfamiliar with poshmark it's
00:10:56 00:10:58 just a comment on
00:10:57 00:11:00 on your profile that's like this
00:10:58 00:11:02 person's a great seller it made a lot of
00:11:00 00:11:04 people happy right so that's
00:11:02 00:11:05 kind of a way you can give a discount
00:11:04 00:11:06 you can send money you can write a
00:11:05 00:11:07 hammer and thank you note
00:11:06 00:11:09 or if you don't feel like it you can
00:11:07 00:11:11 just print out thank you notes and kind
00:11:09 00:11:12 of say like hey one's on the way
00:11:11 00:11:14 uh you know to you i had to order it
00:11:12 00:11:16 from my for my amazon listing because i
00:11:14 00:11:17 ran out of inventory in my warehouse so
00:11:16 00:11:19 they don't think that you're just doing
00:11:17 00:11:21 that every single time it's just like a
00:11:19 00:11:24 one-off circumstance right
00:11:21 00:11:27 so drop ship arbitrage on offer up or
00:11:24 00:11:27 drop shipping with a thank you note
