I’ve been in the process of cleaning out my apartment for the past few months.
I currently have stuff shoved everywhere and anywhere.
There is even an overflow of stuff slowly taking over TheViking’s dry cleaners.
Part of this process has included me trying to sell the things that I will never use again.
As much as I would love to squeeze into my Frock dress, I’m never going to be THAT skinny again.
Poshmark has been a help with this. I’ve gotten rid of several things while making some extra cash.
Remember when I made this post? I’m sure Poshmark was thrilled with my review!
Somewhere along the line I stumbled across a new app called Mercari.
Like Poshmark, Mercari is a great aid to my clean out, but it does have its own pros and cons.
You know Jax is going to neatly spell it all out for you, don’t you? I mean, come on now!
**Mercari is currently not charging the buyer/seller any fees during its beta launch.
**Mercari doesn’t limit you to only selling/buying woman’s clothes.
**Mercari doesn’t limit you to only selling/buying clothes. You can buy/sell a wide variety of things.
**Mercari gives you a few different shipping options so you can pick what’s best for you!
**Mercari has a customer service option that you can chat with directly through the app.
**Mercari allows you to track a shipment directly through the app.
**Mercari utilizes a rating system that rates the seller AND the buyer.
**Mercari pays out through direct deposit or a check in the snail mail.
**Mercari does not have a option to re-post your items. The initial post goes to the top of the list and then gets lost as time goes on.
**Mercari does not protect buyers/sellers with bundle shipments.
**Everything is based on the buyer/sellers actions. A long period of time has to pass before Mercari steps in. This could mean delay in payment if your buyer is inconsiderate.
**Mercari notifies the user that there is no fee for the beta launch, but doesn’t give much information. It would be nice to know when this will end and how much of a fee will be implemented.
I made sure that I really made myself familiar with this application before posting my review.
After a month of selling several items, I have been pretty pleased.
All transactions have gone through smoothly for me so far.
Direct deposits have been made to my account without any hassle.
I even tested their customer service. They did respond to my inquiry, but it took a couple of days.
But, you all already knew that I wouldn't give such an honor without doing my homework.
Without further adieu, it’s my honor to extend the Jax Seal of Approval to Mercari!
I can only imagine the amount of happiness the creators are feeling after getting this high honor!
Have you or will you try the Mercari application?
**Please note that this was not a paid review. In fact, I’m sure Mercari does not even know I exist!**
