I came across Mercari a year ago or so, when they started pushing Yahoo Auctions in Japan. They are, admittedly, lower end atm and I’ve never found anything I wanted to buy there myself so far- though i’ve been looking for an opportunity (hence the deal). I think they / similar co’s have a lot of potential, though, because of the differences in mobile marketplace dynamics + “tons of complaints” but “stellar reviews” reminds me a lot of eBay in the early years…
Re PayPal - if this is about eBay, they are now independent co’s + eBay isn’t that big in Japan as far as I can tell. It would be interesting to see if Mercari / others can get a toehold in US the same way they did in Japan or whether eBay will do a better job then YA in the mobile marketplace segment - so far it has not been impressive, imo.
Thank MR C!
Looking for a PC, my notebook which I purchased from a link you posted on FW 4 years ago is getting slow.
Anyone want to chime in on if this is a good PC for just regular nothing fancy internet using?
Have a happy and safe T-Day MR C and everyone else!
It’s not available on all products, but for many of them you can get free same day shipping if sent to an Amazon locker.
For me this is great, as I have one about a two minute walk from my house.
Last time I did this, they missed the delivery date (because lasership sucks). I was able to get Amazon Prime extension for one order and a $20 something credit for the other (they refunded the shipping even though it was taken off by a coupon). YMMV of course, but they are supposed to at least extend prime by a month.
