How to sell and buy Second-hand Site “PayPay Flea market app” in Japan : English Perfect Shopping Guide

PayPay frima is a Japanese flea market app that started its service in October 2019.
It’s a flea market app that allows you to make payments and purchases with PayPay, but some people may not know how to use it with the explanation in Japanese.

You may also be wondering how the flea market apps are different from Mercari.
PayPay Frima has various advantages that Mercari does not have, such as free shipping. There are other points that are easier to use than Mercari. So this time, I will introduce PayPay Frima in English.

If you enter this invitation code “G0ZNBC” at the time of initial registration, you will receive 300 yen that can be used with PayPay frima.

Difference from Mercari

  • free shipping
  • Anonymous delivery

There is a flea market app called Mercari that is very similar to PayPay flea market app. There are two major differences between PayPay flea markets and Mercari.
One is that shipping is free. The second is that all are anonymous delivery.
Mercari allows the seller to choose whether the shipping cost will be borne by the seller or the buyer at the time of listing.
However, PayPay Frima includes shipping charges for all products, so the purchaser does not have to pay the shipping charges.
Also, since it supports anonymous delivery, it may be a mechanism that people and women who do not want to know their home address can feel at ease.
