Listing Insights

Listing insights will show you how your listing is performing in engagements and make suggestions based on its performance. Often, low engagements are caused by the following:

1. Our marketplace has hundreds of listings in a category; and your listing is difficult to find due to lack of optimizations in your title or description.

2. Your listing isn’t standing out from competitors selling the same item as yours.

Carousell provides tips and features to help you solve these problems and reach your buyers faster.
