Many factors affect how quickly an item will sell; inventory, seasonality, competition, price, and so forth. Some items sell in minutes, some take a bit longer. Here are some of our seller tips:

You can have a really good item but the right person hasn't seen it. Sometimes it's the time of year, the price, the interest. There's no guarantee anything will sell.

Some things sell well depending on brand name. I would not sell on there if I was you. They suspended my account after 100 5 star reviews over a thief. He is still on the site and suspended me an honest seller. This site has a lot of scammers. Look at their bbb report. They have a F. They do not have good customer service. These people will tell you one thing and do another. I would suggest amazon or eBay. eBay May have its issues but even that site is more professional than these people.btw the thief got to keep a free Apple Watch band because mecari protected him. I'

Things tend to sell really quickly on here, especially with a recognizable brand name attached to them. Mercari frequently offers coupons to buyers that work to drive quick sales in many categories. The only things that seem to languish on the marketplace are non-branded clothing items.
