Shop country-wide or hyper-local - the choice is now truly yours!

Want to shop even closer to home? That's possible too! Just select the option to browse items around you and filter items by distance.
- Narrow or widen your search: Tap the locale bar to pick another area, your current location or countrywide. Discover listings around you for in-person deals, and look across the country for items that can be shipped!
- Suspended accounts are now clearly marked out so you have a heads up before dealing.
- “Chat Now" and "Make an Offer" have been upgraded and given their own dedicated buttons to ease navigation.

Really like this app but...
I've an avid user of this app, love it to bits! However, there are quite a few points for improvement.
1. No 'recommended' users for preorders category?
I think there should be recommended users for this category, as there're a lot of preorder scams out there! A recommended list is needed to assure buyers of their authenticity.
2. Messaging function - a mess.
Greatly improved from last time, but no delete button? And they will be very messy for those with many listings. Please improve, by allowing us to search for a particular user/keyword, which will really improve its efficiency! Also, there should be folders too - sorted out by the different listings, arranged altogether. And, when one has a lot of offers for a particular item, the earlier offers tend to get pushed down till they literally don't appear, until that buyer prompts in the pm, then the conversation will once again reappear at the top of the list.
3. Ability to arrange our listings on our own
When we have a lot of listings, it's hard to search for a particular one, and we have to scroll through all of them! At least give us the option to sort them out by dates listed/names/popularity? Please allow us to 'highlight' listings, like Facebook, in a way to promote that particular item(s) to buyers!
It will be better if we can pin the important listing on top. Listings like giveaway, announcements needed to be pin up. I hope Carousell can update with the ability to pin important listings up.
It will be great if we can mark as done and delete it. This will differs between deals that has been done and ongoing deals.
Edit: PLEASE add in video function so sellers can provide video proof and keeping their contact confidential as well.
Great app with stone age photo uploading function
Been using this app for a long time but no improvements are being made to the photo uploading function where the photo gets cropped to a really small square size and im am not able to zoom the photo out in order for the entire product to be shown in full glory. Worst still, i upgraded the app to the latest version and i cant search anything now.
