Carousell is designed to make browsing a thrilling experience, with photos at the centre of discovery. It’s like thumbing through a beautiful catalogue, which is why users are encouraged to spend a little more time on their pictures. Well taken and Insta-worthy photos matter! Simple and neat photos tend to get more offers.
Aesthetics aside, you can also make your listing stand out with clear and catchy names and descriptions. Buyers are looking for information to make a decision, so put yourself in the shoes of a buyer and think about what you would ask. Take time to provide as much specific detail as possible, to avoid having to address multiple queries. For example, product brand, item condition, measurements, defects, warranty periods, and other relevant information.
Some other quick tips:
- List items regularly as that’s a good way to bring a regular flow of new users to your profile.
- Review your prices if you don’t receive offers on your items. In general, Carousell users tend to price their items about 20 per cent above market prices. Lowering your prices will likely attract offers much more quickly! If there is an interesting story behind the product, you should share it. Users are always on the hunt for something special, and appreciate a good story behind the items.
- Take part in Carousell’s campaigns. Carousell recently ran ‘Black Friday’ and ‘12.12’ sales where a huge surge of user activity was recorded during these periods. Sellers have the opportunity to move many more items, while buyers get to score great deals.
Carousell is a community for people to share new and preloved items, to find a new home for things they no longer need, and for them to discover unique treasure.
