New features make listing & selling faster than ever

Selling and shopping just got (even) easier with these new feature updates, just in time for the holidays.

Mercari Team

This holiday, we’re bringing you even more features to help make selling easier and buying better. We want to ensure you are getting the most out of your Mercari experience to deliver the hottest trending products to shoppers at the right time of year. 

That’s why we’re excited to introduce an improved Mercari listing experience that now allows you to list select items faster with accuracy and ease. When you upload an item image, Mercari may instantly identify select products and automatically input listing details for you. By using Mercari’s pre-populated item description, item search may also be improved so shoppers can find items faster.

Try it now for select items, including video games, consoles, Squishmallows stuffed animals, and Pokemon TCG. We're just getting started with our improved listing experience, and right now now it's available to all customers in the Mercari app for iOS and Android and on Mercari.com

Here’s how Mercari’s improved listing experience works:

Log in to your Mercari account to list an item.

  1. Upload up to 12 photos for your listing. Here are some tips on taking great photos. 
  2. If Mercari identifies the item, you can select a match and information will automatically populate in the text fields.*  
  3. Continue with your listing as usual – edit and confirm any remaining details, pricing, and shipping.  
  4. Click List to publish your listing. 

*If Mercari does not identify the item, you'll still need to input item information manually. 

Check it out in action:

Also introducing: Smart Offers

We also recently introduced Smart Offers to take the hassle out of negotiations and save time for both shoppers and sellers. When you set up a listing or edit an existing one, you can enable Smart Offers and set a minimum price for your listing. When a shopper sends an offer, Smart Offers will accept it if it’s in your acceptable price range. If the offer is not in range, a one-time counteroffer will be sent automatically to negotiate with the shopper, on your behalf. This is just one of the ways Mercari is making selling and buying simple. 

Mercari continues to make reselling preloved items more effortless than ever before. We hope you enjoy these improvements to your marketplace experience this holiday season!
