Some celebrities even tried to sell products like foods and clothes online to gain money and one of them is Eat Bulaga Dabarkad Maine Mendoza, or more known to some people as Yaya Dub of the loveteam AlDub.
Maine created an account on online shopping community site Caroussel.com to sell some of her products.
Netizens usually sell their brand new items like clothes, beauty products, appliances, and even furniture in such online shopping community. But what products are Maine going to sell to the online community?
The 23-year-old TV host and actress will sell some of her pre-loved bags, clothes, and shoes on the online shopping community side.
One of the items she successfully sold was her red Gucci platform wedges with floral embroidery.
