The Mercari Group is a Japan-based company in charge of Mercari, the country's largest CtoC marketplace app, and Merpay, a smartphone-based payment service.

    What is Mercari?

    “I want to make society more affluent by ensuring that limited resources are circulated.” This is what founder Shintaro Yamada realized while traveling the world, and what led him to create the CtoC marketplace known as Mercari. Thanks to technology, individuals around the world can now easily connect to buy and sell from each other. Through Mercari, we aim to establish a society where resources are circulated and where people can accomplish their goals without limitations.

    The Mercari Group operates two services: Mercari, Japan’s CtoC marketplace app allowing anyone to easily buy and sell using their smartphones, and Merpay, an easy-to-use mobile payment service integrated within the Mercari app. Our mission is to create value in a global marketplace where anyone can buy & sell. To achieve this mission, we have made our marketplace app available in Japan and the US, and will continue to grow from there.




    The Mercari app is a CtoC marketplace where anyone can buy and sell. By providing unique payment and deposit systems along with AI-based fraud monitoring, we have created a platform allowing for safe and secure transactions.




    Merpay is a mobile payment service that is integrated within the Mercari app. Users can shop at countless places online and offline using their sales earnings or by charging money from their bank accounts.
