Carousell, Sell, Sell

HK Magazine - - GADGETS -

A rel­a­tive new­comer to Hong Kong is Carousell, the brain­child of three Sin­ga­porean de­vel­op­ers. It’s a com­mu­nity mar­ket­place app that’s su­per sim­ple to use: You down­load it, snap a photo of what you want to sell, set a price and hey presto: It’s listed for sale. Other users can check out what you’ve got, and if they like it you can chat within the app to ar­range a meetup. It’s fast and easy, es­pe­cially in a city as small as ours. Hav­ing re­cently hit 100,000 list­ings in Hong Kong, there’s a lot of dross mixed in there—from iffy clothes to a box of pen­cils (yes, re­ally)—but there’s also some gold to be found, from vin­tage cloth­ing to cam­era gear. And of course, half of the fun is in the look­ing. Check it out and grab a bar­gain. Or maybe a box of pen­cils.
