From 25 Aug 2020, Carousell will be implementing a general quota of 30 listings. This means that users can have 30 active listings at a time across all categories (except Property, Autos, Jobs and Services). With active curation of quality listings, buyers can find what they want more easily and you can in turn sell quicker. Read more here
Carousell has been around since 2012 with a mission to inspire everyone to sell. Since we started, sellers have been able to freely post as many listings as they wish and leave them on the marketplace indefinitely. Our recent surveys have shown that 7 in 10 users feel that it’s getting harder to sell on an over-crowded marketplace. With this new change, we can improve the marketplace for both buyers and sellers.
What does this mean for me?
I have less than 30 general listings
As you have fewer than 30 listings, why not take this week to declutter and list more items to maximise your 30 free general quota? When you sell your item and mark it as sold, you’ll free up your quota to list another item.
I have more than 30 general listings
One option is to manage your listings to keep within the general quota of 30. The other option is to subscribe to a 30-day free trial of CarouBiz to list more and enjoy additional business tools, especially if you have a side hustle or full-time business that requires more than 30 listings at a time.

Effective from 25 August 2020, general quota is the maximum number of active listings you may have on your profile at a time. All users will have a general quota of 30. This means you can have 30 listings at a time across all categories except Property, Autos, Jobs and Services.
General quota improves the selling experience by tidying up the marketplace to increase the number of high quality, desirable listings. As a seller, you will experience fairer visibility of your listings—which helps buyers find desired items from a variety of sellers—and higher selling success.
