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.
