Posting, buying and selling on Mijem is free, and no credit card is needed to sign up. The only fees you’ll encounter in Mijem are for accepting credit card payments (optional), and for Mijem’s contactless shipping service (optional). See below for more information.

With Mijem, you can buy or sell your gems — that means textbooks, clothes, shoes, electronics, furniture, that guitar your ex left behind, you name it.

Do you have something good that you’d rather exchange for cash? That’s a gem. Is there something you want that you’d like to get from a trusted source, and pay less than retail? That’s a gem!

You can also arrange for a ride back to your home town. Or offer up a room for rent. Anything you can buy, sell, swap or trade is appropriate for Mijem.

With Mijem, buyers can pay by credit card and have the item shipped by the postal service (USPS or Canada Post).

Not only do these services provide contactless buying/selling to keep you healthy during COVID-19, but they protect you in other ways too:

With credit card payments, the buyer makes a payment in the Mijem app, and Mijem holds the funds until the gem is received. Once the product is confirmed to have been received, or three days after the product is received if there are no reports of an issue, Mijem will clear the payment for the seller and make the funds available. With this process, you can buy with confidence knowing you will receive your gem; and you can sell with confidence knowing payment has already been completed before you ship your gem.

With contactless shipping, there’s no worry about meeting an unknown buyer face to face to deliver or receive a gem. Instead, use Mijem to arrange for delivery, and the gem is delivered by USPS (USA) and Canada Post (Canada).

No, buyers and sellers can still arrange to meet in person. However, we recommend buyers use credit card payments for the protection provided. With credit card payments, your funds are protected until the product is received, so you can buy with confidence.

When you want the increased safety and protection you get with contactless payment and shipping, it’s there for you.

There are no account fees, setup fees, payout fees or statement fees with Mijem. When you sell something, Mijem charges a fee of $3.75 for sales of $30 or less, and 12.5% for sales of more than $30. This covers the cost of services including the escrow process that keeps buyers and sellers safe (see below for more details), and compares very well with services like Offerup (15%), AirBnB (15%) and Poshmark (20%).

Fees are paid by the seller (i.e. deducted from the sale price before Mijem makes a payout to the seller). There is no cost to the buyer for paying by credit card.

Shipping costs are separate from credit card costs. See below.
