8 ways we’ve simplified selling

Making some extra money and extra space in your home is easier than you think with Mercari. Here's how.

Team Mercari

Whether you’re decluttering your home, making room for upgrades, selling your stuff on Mercari is fast and easy. From bundles-made-easy to bulk pricing edits, here are a few ways Mercari makes selling a breeze:

1. Get paid instantly

Nobody likes waiting for payment! When you have a balance, you can cash out with Instant Pay for just $3 and get paid within minutes. Cha-ching.

2. Promote or Offer to sell it faster

With Promote, you reduce the price by 5% and we’ll boost your listing and notify anyone who liked your item that you’ve lowered the price. Or, use Offer to give a discount just to people who’ve liked your item. In addition, when you set up or edit your listing, you can also enable Smart Offers. Smart Offers allow you to set a minimum price you’re willing to accept, and we’ll automatically approve or counter one offer per user based on your acceptable price range.

3. Pricing edits are easier than ever

On, now you can change multiple listing prices all at once! In your profile, go to My Listings, update the price(s) you want, and click save. You can also update the price from the individual item’s listing.

4. Authenticate your Luxe items in a snap

With Mercari Authenticate, get your designer items authenticated in the app in just 48 hours. Authenticated items get a diamond badge, and are automatically boosted and seen by more buyers.

5. Delivery for local selling

Mercari Local is a great option for selling fragile, bulky items you don’t want to ship. Our delivery partner will pick up and drop off your item, in a bag, a box, or whatever you’ve got on-hand.

6. Skip the label with a QR code

When you use a UPS or USPS prepaid label, there’s no need for a printer – after your item sells, we’ll give you a QR code on your Order Status page. Just take your package to a USPS Post Office or UPS store, show the QR code on your phone, and they’ll scan it and ship your package off. Done!

7. Accept bundle offers easily

Bundle offers allow you to sell multiple items at once to one seller. Shoppers can simply select the items they want and you choose whether to accept, counter, or decline. And because you can ship multiple items together with a Mercari prepaid label, bundles also help shoppers save on shipping. Try listing multiple items in the same category and/or complementary items at the same time to encourage bundle-building. Shoppers can only make bundle offers on the Mercari app.

8. Flip Vacation mode on in seconds

Taking a quick break from selling or going on a getaway? You can temporarily deactivate your listings with Vacation mode, so you won’t miss a sale or shipment deadline. Your listings will automatically reactivate when your break ends. You can also edit or turn off Vacation mode at any time.
