With its continued efforts to expand categories and improve user experiences, Carousell has become the most popular mobile classifieds app among Hong Kong consumers, according to traffic analysis and ranking company Similarweb. In addition, Carousell has the highest number of unique daily visitors compared to all other local shopping malls. This huge consumer base has directly influenced the strong sales momentum that sellers have seen on Carousell – which has increased by nearly 32 percent in transaction volume from 2018 to 2019 by listing products on the platform.

 

In light of the fast-changing business environment and the growing consumer preference for online shopping, scaling one’s online business is becoming increasingly crucial for Hong Kong retailers.

“We are thrilled to be able to offer a service like CarouBiz to fully support and empower our Hong Kong merchants to expand their reach to more online audiences and continue to thrive in this dynamic and challenging market environment. We believe local retailers should be equipped with more tools to help navigate the complexity of e-commerce so they can just focus on their core businesses” said William Ip, Managing Director of Carousell Hong Kong, “Carousell is committed to creating a community that allows for more possibilities for sellers and buyers.
