Mercari Statistics, User Counts and Facts (2021)

Mercari Facts

What is Mercari?

It’s the perfect place to go to declutter or discover items that will breathe new life into your space. Letting go has never felt so good – it’s almost as good as finding your new favorite thing. And we’re here to help.

We connect millions of people across the U.S. to shop and sell almost anything. We all have things we don’t use, never used, or simply outgrew. But these treasured items still have value. Our team is always trying to find new ways to make exchanging items even easier. This means at-home pickups, same-day delivery, and a curated list of items you’ll love.

Say ‘goodbye’ to the things you’re no longer using and ‘hello’ to delightful new finds.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Mercari stats come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
