- Prepare for your delivery!
Note: Always chat with your buyer to ensure that they are agreeable with the terms!
Can I enable CarouPay if I have multiple quantities of the same item?
We understand that sellers might have a listing with multiple quantities. In this case, turn on 'Business mode' when listing your item:
This will ensure that your listing will still be visible in the marketplace when an order is placed.
Currently, CarouPay listings will automatically be marked as reserved when an order is requested. This is to ensure that there are no multiple orders are made on a listing that has only one unit for sale.
