Useful Mercari Shopping Guide

Mercari Logo

It is well known that Mercari is the number one online flea market  in Japanese, but Mercari does not open for international shipping. The goods on Mercari are second-hand products sold by individual sellers (like Carousell). It also does not support Overseas bank card / Visa / Master payment, if you want to purchase, you can register a Hoyoyo account to process.

The advantages to shop on Mercari are:

1. Various amount of Manga, Animation or Pop Stars peripheral products

2. The price is much lower than original price (some can also be bargained)

3. Products are second hand yet in good condition

Mercari sellers are basically divided into two categories: individual sellers and professional sellers.

There are a number of sellers on Mercari specializing in the sale of Mikihouse children's clothes or Hysteric mini.

The second category is individual sellers, which are characterized by:

1. The number of evaluations is small (generally single digits, or only a few dozen evaluations are many)

2. There are few surrounding areas to be sold, but the general price is very cheap. There are also a lot of medieval papers within 1,000 yen. Most of the products such as children's clothing are relatively low.

*Personal sellers will put their own neighbors on other websites (such as Fril: in addition to the coal stove, so there may be invalid shelves on the coal stove, so the words are still given. Seller message communication is better
