Mercari is an Android application for selling or buying literally anything. This popular marketplace offers a way to get rid of unwanted stuff and earn some cash.

Mercari can be a great way to sell items you no longer need. Instead of throwing the stuff away or giving it out for free, it is possible to earn some money by putting it up for sale. Or vice versa, you can purchase used things in great condition and enjoy items second life without overpaying.
The whole process is well organized by the apps developers. Buyers and sellers do not have to meet in person. When something that you have listed is sold, you receive an email with a printable label. Further, you have to pack the item and ship it to the buyer. Additionally, for some big American cities, Mercari may send a courier right to your door to pick the package up.
The service guarantees there will be no scam. Sellers get their money only after buyers confirm the successful delivery. Please note that it is very important to keep the tracking number otherwise you will not be paid. Also, buyers can ask for a refund in case of any problem.
There is another service operating by the same principle called Tradesy. It specializes in authentic brand fashion clothing, accessories and jewelry.
