  • Accountability

    They need to implement a phone number attached to every ID. Scammers can hide with new emails. There is no accountability so the marketplace is riddled with scammers

    What’s even the point of releasing this app in the United States app store if US citizens aren’t allowed to sell or shop on this app? Pointless.
  • Update every 2 days??

    It was convenient for its buy and sell platform but it gets frustrating everytime they need to upgrade it from time to time.
  • US not Supported?

    At least in iOS, the US isn’t supported yet. Canada is, but there is a twitter account already up and running for USA? Might be a neat app but clearly not useful if I can’t use it yet. Maybe marketing should scale down until you have a product launched in the area you’re marketing to.
  • Okay for a Commission-Free Marketplace. Nothing Special.

    I wish I could give Carousell 5 stars, but there are too many weaknesses that really put a damper on both sellers and buyers. If these are addressed, I would definitely consider giving them 5 stars. For the most part, this marketplace has pros others lack. For example: there is no listing fees or final sale fees. Sellers can coordinate transactions via the method of their choice, and cut out the middle man other marketplaces take. The marketplace is also fairly large and somewhat active relative to other commission-free marketplaces. The cons, however, are abundant and I’ve seen little improvement in the past year. Firstly, the layout is terrible. They group items into very vague categories like “for him”, “for her”, etc. There are no subcategories, so you will find everything from housewares to clothing and children’s items, all scattered throughout each category. There are so many inactive users, and Carousell won’t remove them. They leave the listings up even though some of these users have been gone for over a year. I tried to buy 12 different items and wasn’t able to because all of the users (12 different people) were inactive. I reported them multiple times, and nothing happened. My experience as a seller has also been pretty underwhelming. I rarely sell anything whereas, I sell thousands of items on other marketplaces. Most of the likes are from wholesalers trying to get buyers, not people actually interested in buying items. Lastly, they have a list of “featured sellers”. Rather than having set criteria to be a featured seller, they appear to hand pick individuals without a rhyme or reason. Some of these “featured sellers” haven’t sold anything or did anything to prove themselves as worthy of the designation. There are small businesses with very professional photos and lots of positive feedback, that are not selected as featured sellers, yet they will give this designation to teenagers whom haven’t made a sale or received a single positive feedback, and take pictures of wrinkled clothes on floors, no sales or feedback. I wish they had set criteria like how eBay has set criteria to be a ‘power seller’ or Poshmark’s ‘top-rated seller’.
  • Very Convenient and Useful App!

    One look at this app before, and I knew it was going to be successful! I would highly recommend Carousell for those on a tight budget, making ends meet, or just into plain online business! This app's ease of use is phenomenal, so convenient! Take a photo with your phone, post the item, and watch the magic work- that simple. The app also allows users to experience an unbiased form of economy, as well as more freedom for a broader range of products and modes of delivery via its users without compromising their security. They even have a system with its users that could post bogus buyers/sellers. They also make great developments in the app that keeps them in line with the current online businesses. I so love it, it has helped me out a lot. Thank you so much Carousell team. Superbly revolutionary! Keep it up! :)
