Yessss!! It’s been quite a fun and satisfying journey!
Last Summer (2018), I was driving down the highway on the way to work and I saw a Mercari Ad on the billboard. I did not know what it was, so I ignored it. About a week later, we were trying to get rid off some baby stuffs that we do not need anymore. I tried Craigslist, but I really do not like the idea of having stranger come to our home just to ‘see’ of they like the items that I am selling.
Fast forward a few days later, I started to get curious about Mercari. I downloaded the App on my phone and signed up right away. It was so easy to use. I started taking a picture if the item, put some descriptions, price and shipping options. The results were surprising! I did not realize anyone would pay shipping for used items.
I sold a few items within the first week. Then a few more baby items after that. Me and my wife also started gathering items that we no longer use and made them as our after-the-kids-went-to-bed project! We spent a couple hours snapping pictures and posting them in Mercari. We posted many items in various category including clothes!
To date, we have earned almost $1,600! That’s quite some money that we used towards our unplanned expenses!
Here is a screenshot of what was sold recently:
So, why Mercari?
I like Mercari because of its simple to use, plus the fact that I dont need to meet strangers is a WINNER!
Price negotiation can be done in the App. Mercari hold the buyer’s money until the item is delivered before I receive the money. It’s fair for both parties.
All shipping and deliveries are tracked in the App.
Keep in mind, Mercari takes 10% of your sold price. It seems pretty steep, but it actually much better than eBay.
If you have items you no longer use or need, sell them on Mercari for extra cash. The cash can be used to help pay your credit card or whatever else you need to pay.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
