Mercari app is a marketplace app launched in July 2013, it currently operates in Japan and U.S.A as an online marketing system. This app basically makes it easy to sell stuff we don’t need or see as junk in our homes.
Mercari has features that allow users to receive money for the things they sell instantly. If you are looking for an online selling platform that helps and assists sellers greatly, Mercari is the right place for you. The Mercari app has over 100 million downloads and one of the most prominent Japanese apps.
The Mercari app was recognized by Google as the best shopping app in 2013 and the best app in 2014 and 2015 respectively. Mercari also made it 4th place into the seller’s choice awards in 2019. These awards prove that people embrace and appreciate Mercari’s app services.
Like I earlier stated, the app makes it easy for sellers by not only having an understandable interface but by making sellers not have to pay for the shipping of sold items. It has a free shipping option or in some cases, the buyers are to pay for the shipping.
One of the only short-comings of Mercari is the fact that it does not allow most sellers to enlist multiple items and does not work well on desktops.

Mercari works almost like eBay, although it might not possess a large user base as that of eBay. There might be a lot of issues and complaints with its services, but may I remind that Mercari is only 7 years old and has come this far in a short while. Its seller-friendly interface creates an atmosphere where buyers and sellers can relate transparently to the basics of marketing.
I know and have the feeling that this marketplace platform has so much to offer and in time it would beat the marketplace business.
