Take nice photos.
Presentation is key. Use sharp, well-lit images. Show different sides of your item, highlighting tags or markings that demonstrate authenticity or condition.
Tell a good story
Describe it with “good-to-knows.” Include brand name, original price, why you’re selling, and household details like smoke- or pet-free. Be compelling, but honest.
Pay for shipping
When you choose this option, we mark your item with a “Free Shipping” icon. Items with free shipping often sell more quickly.
“Promote” your item
The “Promote” feature automatically drops your item’s price by 5%. Mercari moves it up in search results and alerts those who Liked it of the new, lower price.
Promptly answer any questions and, when a sale is made, ship and confirm it ASAP. Including a thank you note is always a nice touch.
