Carousell Testimonial - Princess TitularPrincess Titular

“To the buyers I’ve met on @carousell.ph and the friends who have shown their support (you know who you are!) thank you soooo much! ❤️ You are the reason na nakabili ako ng yearbook. You are the reason I can attend our batch’s grad ball. You are also the reason I was able to save up para makaattend kasama ni nanay sa darating na graduation natin. ❤️ You are part of the reason kaya patuloy akong nagsumikap at magsusumikap. So again, a huge thank you to you and I wish you all the best!!! ❤️ #LetsCarousell” [Link to IG Post]

Carousell Testimonial - Hurby YgonaHurby Ygona

“Joining the said platform gave me the opportunity to find new homes to the things that I’m getting rid of, while earning cash on the side. I can say I have had the best experience in Carousell so far, both as seller and buyer. I’m really thankful for Carousell not only for making me earn by selling my stuff and allowing me to buy great items for less, but also because I have had established great relationships with the people in the community.  Thank you #carousellph for creating such platform that helps not only the community, but the environment as well.” [Link to IG Post]
