Users Ask What Happened to iOffer Listings
By: Ina Steiner
Ecommerce site iOffer took its site offline on February 25th for maintenance and said it was planning to be back up and running on March 1st. But users are asking what happened to all the listings.
These days we don't keep up with the alternative online marketplace, which launched in the early 2000s (we've found management to be unresponsive to our inquires), but users reached out to us today to ask what was happening.
On Twitter, the company announced on March 4th that it had completed maintenance, and "everyone should be able to access their accounts again."
On March 11, it tweeted, "We are aware several sellers inventory on iOffer have not been restored from the maintenance we are working on individual sellers account to restore their items/listings. Thanks again for your patience."
But as users continued to report seeing far fewer listings than before the maintenance, iOffer tweeted on March 13, "We're hoping to restore all sellers items/listings."
Feel free to share your experiences with iOffer below.
Update 4/1/19: An anti-counterfeiting group issued a press release about the iOffer shutdown, and Amazon Pay suspended the accounts of iOffer sellers, see update here.
