What are Duplicate Listings?

Duplicate listings are multiple listings of the same item or service. Duplicates are bad for the marketplace because they cause unnecessary clutter and hinder buyers from finding what they want. Please list each item or service only once to make everyone’s browsing experience more enjoyable.

Users found listing duplicates may have their products removed and enforcement actions taken on their accounts.

What if I'm in a hurry to sell and would like to get more attention for my items?

If you are in a hurry to sell your items and would like more visibility for them, try our Carousell Bumps instead! (Selected countries only)

What if I'm selling more than one of the same item? Can I list it twice?

If you’re selling more than one of the same item, you should not list the same item twice. Instead, you can always accept multiple offers on the same item without marking it as reserved or sold.

What if I’m selling an item in different colours and sizes? Can I list it separately? 

Yes. You can list each item separately. However, the first photo for each listing must be of the item in the exact colour or size listed.

What if I marked something as sold but I want to sell it again? Can I list it again? 

If you are relisting something recently sold, you'll be prompted to mark your sold listing as available and it will be successfully restored.

What if I deleted something, but I decided to keep selling it? Can I list it again? 

If you are relisting something recently deleted, Carousell will help to restore the previously deleted listing so you may continue selling.

What if I create a new listing of an item that I have already listed but I've changed some details of this new listing -is that considered a duplicate listing? 

Yes. If you list the same thing more than once, it may be taken down and enforcement actions may be taken on your account.
