Mercari Policy Changes: Why Beauty Resale Enthusiasts Will LOVE Glou Marketplace

Updated: Mar 29

Recent policy changes on Mercari have sparked concern among beauty resale buyers and sellers. The new policy change includes:

  • no more seller fees - instead the buyer pays the premium

  • buyers can return their purchase for any reason

While Mercari has been a popular platform for buying and selling pre-owned beauty products, the new policy shift may impact the ease and safety of transactions.


This is concerning for beauty resale buyers and sellers because:

  • opens up the door to return fraud as buyers can return opened and used products

  • lowers the barrier to entry for scammers selling fake products


However, there's good news for those seeking an alternative platform: Glou Beauty Marketplace. Glou Marketplace distinguishes itself by prioritizing the needs of beauty resale enthusiasts. With a focus on fostering a safe and seamless buy and sell platform, Glou offers several advantages over Mercari.


Beauty resellers and buyers will love Glou because:

  • 110% money-back guarantee for buyers

  • Focus on premium beauty brands and products

  • Customer care and help from real human beings

  • Verified products and sellers through our AI-powered backend

  • Low fees and no hidden fees (10% commission to keep our site running and that's it)

  • Automated and standardized listing creation (upload pictures, price, and condition - that's it)

  • Free shipping when you refer a friend
