Editors' Review

Carousell Snap-Sell Chat-Buy for Android lets you buy and sell things from your smartphone. For sellers, a storefront with basic listings and image hosting is free; Carousell pays for it all by charging a small fee on each completed transaction. Sound familiar? That's how eBay works; in fact, Carousell's documentation calls it "eBay for smartphones."

Pros

Sell easy: Listing items to sell on Carousell is easy and starts with your camera or gallery when you tap Sell on Carousell's toolbar.

Attractive layout: The Carousell listings we browsed and searched for were attractively presented and feature useful extras such as customer comments and social media links.

Buy local: Carousell is based in Singapore and caters to users worldwide, but it also helps you find local sellers. Buying from neighbors saves shipping fees, too.

Cons

Caveat emptor: As always, let the buyer beware: Carousell is a venue, not a retailer, and reputation is critical. Sellers should take the time to read all of Carousell's Terms and Conditions.

Not eBay: Despite its description, Carousell is not eBay for smartphones. eBay has its own Android app, and its listings dwarf Carousell's many times over.

Bottom Line

Carousell Snap-Sell Chat-Buy may be a clunky name, but the app is nice. It seems like a promising eCommerce site, comparisons to eBay notwithstanding.
