Mercari Now connects buyers and sellers within their own neighborhood.
We partner with Postmates to pick up and deliver items contact-free between buyers and sellers who live nearby.
Currently, Mercari Now is only available in the app.
How does Mercari Now work for sellers?
Mercari Now is introducing a completely new way to sell. It’s perfect for items that are too expensive to ship. Plus, the day the item sells is the day we pick it up. There’s no need to have a car or make a visit to the post office. You can also make money faster as the item is delivered the day it’s sold.Just list an item in the Mercari app and you’ll have the option to select home pickup with Mercari Now. Once your item sells, we’ll match your availability with the buyer’s. Get your item ready for pickup by putting it in a bag and sealing it up (if possible). If it’s fragile, package it with care.
