Carousell, the online marketplace headquartered in Singapore, has launched an AI-driven Sell to Carousell service in partnership with Laku6, an Indonesian AI-platform. The service enables sellers to list their new and secondhand mobile phones from home within just a day, or they can drop the device at any iStore outlet, a premium Apple seller headquartered in Singapore.
To use the service, sellers need to fill out a form, and Laku6’s tech will provide an estimated quote for the device within two minutes. The platform inspects both software and hardware, even screen damage, and comes up with a pricing based on the device’s condition. Once the seller agrees to the price, they can encash within just an hour.
The partnership with Laku6 has been a game-changer for Carousell, with a 55% increase in mobile transactions within just six months. The AI-driven service provides a hassle-free way for sellers to list their devices and get a fair price for them, while also providing buyers with quality products.
Carousell expects the partnership with Laku6 to solidify its position as a leading player in the industry. The online marketplace has been steadily growing since its launch in 2012. Its platform includes categories such as fashion, electronics, and home appliances.
The Sell to Carousell service has already been launched in Singapore and is expected to roll out to other markets soon. The service is expected to be a hit among sellers who want to get rid of their old devices quickly and conveniently while getting a fair price for them. Buyers, on the other hand, will have access to a wide range of quality devices at competitive prices.
