How do I buy stuff on a Campus Marketplace?

As with selling, buying stuff on a Campus Marketplace is no different from buying anywhere else on the app.


1. Tap 'Chat Now' to start enquiring about the item. The "Chat to Buy" button can be found on the top right hand corner of the screen on Android, and on the bottom of the screen for iOS.

2. If you need more details or photos, you can chat to ask the seller. Continue chatting with the seller to decide on how to complete the transaction - some possible ways include bank transfer & postage, via meetup, or via Cash On Delivery. Make sure to confirm the dealing method and dealing price with the seller before proceeding to make an offer. 

3. Once you've confirmed that the item is something that you would definitely purchase, tap on the "Make an Offer" button and indicate the price agreed by both parties and tap 'Submit'. 

4. Make sure the seller accept your offer, you'll both then be able to leave feedback for each other.

Please not you can only leave feedback for a seller (and vice versa) after an offer has been made and accepted. This ensures that feedback left on Carousell only relates to genuine transactions, so be sure to use the offer system so you can rack up those feedback points!
