Excellent Smartphone Application to List, Buy and Sell Products

Have you been disappointed with major online shopping portals such a Amazon and eBay in the past? If so, you are likely to be quite pleased with what an application known as Carousell has in 'store'. This architecture functions much like similar portals and yet, all commissions and fees have been done away with. This system is primarily used to buy and sell household goods.

Features ad Usability

Carousell has dramatically streamlined the listing process. As opposed to spending a great deal of time setting up a profile, an advertisement can be created in approximately 30 seconds. Numerous items can be listed through a single profile, appealing to a wider audience. There is also a stand-alone chat feature which enables buyers and sellers to communicate with the simple click of a button.

Additional Options

Carousell is primarily designed for the smartphone user, so all features and functions are quite easy to manipulate. Buyers can enjoy an amazing selection of products and a private chat capability (amongst other amenities). Sellers are able to earn 'badges' to boost their credibility and up to four photos can be attached to each item. These images can also be shared across social media networks.


  • There are no additional fees or commissions when selling a product
  • Carousell Groups enables users to narrow down their search criteria to a specific region or demographic profile


  • Not as much exposure when compared to larger sites
  • The total file size will vary with the device and the operating system
