When should I Spotlight?

With millions of listings on our platform, reaching buyers is the key to your success. A Spotlight Ad works best if you:

1. Have multiple items to sell and want to advertise for several days in a row.

2. Want to target users browsing in other categories.

3. Want a constant stream of visibility for a wide range of products.

Introducing Package Ads

Purchasing our ads separately can be a hassle for sellers who want to maximize our best features from both Bump and Spotlight in one listing. We’ve thus packaged them into Package Ads for a hassle-free seller experience!

A smart and easy investment


A Spotlight Ad can run from 3 to 30 days, and is purchased using Carousell Coins. Save even more when you buy Coins in bulk with discounts.

The price of a Spotlight Ad can vary slightly based on traffic and category.

Strong demand can cause spikes in prices. This ensures fair competition so that your listing’s reach is maximized.

You’ll only have to pay when a click is delivered, so every penny of your budget is put to good use.
