  1. Will the buyer know my address? I’m worried because I have a lot of valuables listed (although not available for local delivery). Once they know where the buyer bought the item, could they look my up and show up at my home unannounced?

    I’m very concerned about this possiblity and it is impossible to contact Mercari to ask questions like this one.

    Please help.

    1. Exactly my question also. I sent that off to Mercari and got an immediate form answer telling me that if I didn’t have a printer I could bring my package to the nearest UPS Store. Sounds like a good program to rid of heavy stuff, but very vague on details and no way to ask anyone

  2. Another question, this promotion says to declutter your garage and I have some stuff, small and affordable, but there is no available category for it. The reason most of my stuff is in my garage is because it belongs in my garages not inside my house. I know many people have stuff like home decor.
    But declotering many garage sometimes has more than the categories available, then what?

    Again, there’s no way of asking Mercari directly.
