Create value in a global marketplace
where anyone can buy & sell

Mission

"I want to make society more affluent by ensuring that limited resources are circulated." This is what founder Shintaro Yamada realized while traveling the world, and what led him to create the CtoC marketplace known as Mercari. Thanks to technology, individuals around the world can now easily connect to buy and sell from each other. Through Mercari, we aim to establish a society where resources are circulated and where people can accomplish their goals without limitations.
