Mercari – Easily Sell Your Things | NewsWatch Review

Consumer Update

There’s nothing more annoying than having clutter in your home. Well, that is, unless you have clutter that’s in good shape but you just don’t have the room. Enter Mercari.

This is an app that lets you sell unused items to help de-clutter your home and make money at the same time. Here’s how it works. All you have to do is simply take a picture of the item, set the price, and it’s instantly in the marketplace. On the buyer’s side, you can browse through a broad selection of items, from clothing to electronics. If you find something you like, you can chat with the seller before you purchase the item. There’s discounted shipping, tracking, and return labels if the item isn’t up to snuff. And if you’re worried about buying and selling online, don’t be. Mercari secures the transaction until both the buyer and seller are satisfied. They even have a money back guarantee if you don’t receive an item. Easy as that. Since launching in 2014, millions of items have been bought and sold. The app is growing fast as a mobile alternative to eBay or Craigslist, recently reaching number 1 in the shopping category.

There are a bunch of different categories to search under including women, men, kids, home, vintage and collectibles, beauty, electronics, sports and outdoors, handmade, and even an “other” category for those miscellaneous items. So, start listing or shopping today!

Mercari is available to download on iOS and Android devices, and for limited time, it is free to sell your items. Go download today and start de-cluttering your home! You can even go directly to their website if you prefer,
