How do Bumps work?


We want to help you sell better! 

Bumps help increase the visibility of your items on the marketplace by bumping them to the top of the Popular (without keywords) and Recent sort. After which, it will behave like a normal listing and be moved down as new listings are added to the marketplace. 


By doing so, Bumps can provide your items with increased exposure. After Bumping your listing, you can compare changes to the visibility of your item through your Listing Insights.

Get your listings noticed now with either a 3-day Bump or a Free Bump!

What is a 3-day Bump?

A 3-day Bump will bump your listing 3 times over 3 consecutive days. 

For example, a Bump purchased on 7 pm on a Wednesday will be bumped again at 7 pm on Thursday, followed by 7 pm on Friday.

What happens when I reserve my listing mid 3-day Bump?

Subsequent Bumps will still take place as scheduled, however, the reserved listing will not be searchable in the marketplace.

Once unreserved, the listing will be positioned where it would be as if it was bumped on schedule.

How long will a Bump last?

A Bump is an instant effect that brings your item to the top of the marketplace. After which, it will behave like a normal listing and be moved down as new listings are added.

How do I know if my listing is Bumped? 

You can check if your listing has been Bumped either through the listing itself or through the Listing Insights.

Do Bumps guarantee a sale? 

Bumps provide your listings with more visibility. However, we cannot guarantee that a Bump will lead to a like, chat or offer. To make sure you get the most out of Bumps, use them on good-quality listings.

How do I qualify for a Free Bump?

Carousellers can try a Free Bump once every 7 days per item, by clicking on the Free Bump option. To qualify for a Free Bump, a listing must be at least 7 days old and have its price lowered by at least 10%. 

Remember, this must be done through the Free Bump option!

Also, do note that if the price is increased after the Free Bump is in place, the Bump effect will be annulled, and the listing will return to its pre-Bump position on the marketplace and user profile page.

Listings in the following categories are not eligible for a Free Bump:

  • Community
  • Jobs
  • Services
  • Cars
  • Property
  • Luxury
  • Health & Beauty

Listings in the following sub-categories are not eligible for a Free Bump:
