The Mercari App Makes It Easy to Buy and Sell One's New or Used Items

For a few years now, Mercari has been helping people in Japan to make better use of their goods, and the Mercari app is now available on the other side of the Pacific. The buying and selling platform has opened in the US, giving American consumers an easy way to make money off of the goods they no longer make any use of.

While buying and selling used goods has long been the quarry of sites like eBay and Craigslist, the Mercari app makes it significantly easier. When a user makes a purchase on the platform, Mercari will send the seller a prepaid shipping label, so it's free to ship on the seller's end. All sellers need to do is print the label, take the product to a post office or shipping center, and send it off.
