Carousell, a classifieds group based in Singapore, has on Thursday officially announced its partnership with Zeek, the on-demand logistics technology platform, to launch a brand-new delivery option that provides a comprehensive and integrated shopping journey for Carousell users in Hong Kong.

This new, quick-commerce delivery feature will cover a wide range of product categories and is available for both new and second-hand items, Carousell said in a statement.

This partnership with Zeek provides a comprehensive delivery option for merchants and casual sellers across various categories – from computers and technology to beauty and personal care, mobile phones to video games, home appliances to health and nutrition, and pet supplies to auto accessories – with a more convenient shipping method that empowers them to succeed.

The new delivery option is now available on both app and website. Carousell users will see additional ‘Mailing and Delivery’ options when listing an item to sell, as well as on listings in selected categories, that integrate Zeek’s services enabling both buyers and sellers to easily select the option to use Zeek’s delivery service.

Zeek provides various delivery options for Carousell users that are fitting for different product categories and scenarios. Zeek2Door provides economic same-day/next-day delivery services to customer’s doorstep or e-lockers. An even quicker option ZeekDash provides point-to-point delivery in 2/4-hour for more time sensitive products and scenarios.

The collaboration with Zeek will streamline the entire buy-sell process for Carousell users and remove hassles on logistics. Carousell users who sign up for a Zeek account can enjoy a HK$30 ($3.82) discount upon ordering HK$100($12.74)-worth of 2-to-4-hour delivery services, which can be used for both delivering items to buyers or picking up items from sellers.

Additionally, Carousell sellers, especially those who own small businesses, can accelerate their business growth with quick commerce via exclusive rates for same-day/next-day delivery services, starting from HK$27/5kg with no minimum order required, in the first month with no extra handling fee.

Carousell’s vision is to inspire others to make secondhand as their first choice, and has been focused on solving barriers of convenience and trust in selling and buying secondhand. By making it more convenient to shop on marketplaces, this partnership with Zeek will hopefully encourage more new and existing customers alike to choose secondhand.

“At Carousell, we are conscious of our users’ needs and have continually strived to build an ecosystem of support with like-minded partners that enables our users, especially small businesses, to succeed,

“By launching this collaboration with Zeek, we’re not only making the buy-sell experience more convenient and reliable but also taking another step forward to solve the barriers of second-hand transactions and inspire consumers to choose second-hand as their first choice,” said Kevin Huang, Managing Director of Carousell Hong Kong.

Carousell is the leading classifieds group in Greater Southeast Asia on a mission to inspire the world to start selling, and to make second-hand the first choice. Founded in August 2012 in Singapore, the group has a leading presence in eight markets under the brands Carousell,, Cho Tot, OneKyat, Ox Street and Refash, serving tens of millions of monthly active users.

“We are delighted to be collaborating with Carousell. Carousell is a brand that shares sustainable values and hopes for more eco-friendly consumer behaviour which is the same as Zeek’s values,

“We believe that our comprehensive delivery options can help a wide group of Carousell business merchants and individual users to accelerate deal closure and market catchment. The collaboration will not only bring a new model to the secondhand ecosystem, but also reduce the environmental impact and create a sustainable lifestyle together,” said Eric Kong, Group Strategic Project Director and Head of Quick Commerce (Hong Kong) of Zeek.
