A little note about Carousell.

A little deviation from my baby musings.

You know Carousell? Well, to date I’ve managed to sell two items. A dress I’ve never worn before and a North Face bag I’ve previously bought for traveling. I thought that this app was great for selling pre-loved items. It’s like a modernized garang-guni man, only on the social platform.

However, one thing I didn’t fancy about the app is that they allowed PO. PO – Pre-Order, is for group buys where people order the items from the seller first and receive the item once the seller reaches their minimum order in order to purchase from their supplier. Of course, group buys make things cheap..only if you got the patience to wait for it to arrive (usually 1-3 weeks depending if the order is cap). Recently I’ve happened to like an item and the item seller seems to have ran off with the money collected. You know these PO means you have to transfer the payment in first to secure your purchase. I wasn’t a victim since I didn’t buy (I’m not a fan of PO!) but I’ve seen some buyers plastering angry messages on the comments track asking for their refund and threatening to go to the police. Well, I don’t know both side of the story so I shall keep my comments to myself but yeap, I’ve never trusted PO. It takes a lot to convince me if a particular seller is genuine. So please be safe when shopping with some sellers.

That said, I still enjoy browsing through the app. I’ve bought a dress from the site and managed to meet up with the seller directly since she stayed near my previous place. It was COD so it was such a safe buy! I’ve contemplated about the dress since my last buying trip to BKK, after I delivered a baby to till she’s 8 months old. If I liked it till now I guess it’s a great buy! Hehe. The app is slightly addictive in my opinion and I keep wondering what can I put up next to sell! What should I sell next….:P

  1. Next time can sell baby stuff that you don’t need anymore. Till now I still can find stuff which I don’t use or need anymore within the house. Can also take this as a good opportunity to clear your stuff before moving!
