Sellers can also take advantage of Carousell’s free unli-posting where they can get unlimited free ads in selected categories to maximize their sales.
New users can also look forward to Carousell’s vast community of buyers and sellers. Find groups to join and start buying and selling with friends, people of similar interests or communities that you care about.
