I just noticed something tonight while listing an item for sale on Mercari. I am new to selling on that platform so I am sure that some of you have probably already noticed this.

 

Mercari charges 10% fees. But while building the listing if you list it as free shipping for the buyer then Mercari charges you 10% of the shipping fee as well (kinda like Ebay applies their fees to shipping costs as well). But, if you list it as buyer pays for shipping then you do NOT get charged the 10% on shipping.

 

For example, if I sell a item for $100 and it costs $15 to ship this item nationwide (only option on Mercari) then I pay 10% of $100 to Mercari leaving me with $90 and then I pay $15 for the shipping leaving me with a take home amount of $75.

 

However, if I list it at $85 and have the buyer pay $15 shipping then I am only charged the 10% on the $85. Leaving me with a take home amount of $76.50.

 

Not a huge difference but one definitely worth mentioning, especially if you sell a lot on there. None of my listings on Mercari will be free shipping haha.

Has everybody been required to provide US government ID to be active on Mercaci?

After sniping a 2007 MTT for $110 (!) and using $20 from my first sale in the platform, Mercari cancelled my transaction (!!) due to 'unusual activity' and the foreign-owned company is requiring US government ID in order to have my account restored.

Yeah, I am not sure why, but it is part of their verification process. They had temporarily suspended that portion of the process when coronavirus first hit, but they have recently reinstated it.
