Mercari aims to provide a solution by enabling people to easily sell and purchase second-hand items in a mobile marketplace with their smartphones.
Japan’s mobile shopping obsession is finally in the US. Mercari, the resale shopping app, is the country’s biggest community-powered shopping fair in the palm of your hands. The intuitive app lets you buy and sell anything, from anywhere, in seconds from your phone: fashion, electronics, jewelry, console games, new, pre-owned and hand-made items, Mercari delivers. Listing your item is as simple as uploading a photo and adding a few details, with built-in features that help you easily print out shipping labels and quickly drop packages in the mail. Mercari’s sharing community grows larger and makes the world more sustainable every day.
