About Us

We exist to create the smart marketplace that empowers Vietnamese daily life. As the first recommerce platform and a pioneer in classified 4.0, we believe that we can build a one-stop site to meet all wants and needs of Vietnamese in all stages of their life.

From “Cho Tot?” to “Cho Tot!”

When we first started in 2012, “good market” (Vietnamese meaning of Cho Tot) is an unconventional term in Vietnam. Now there are average 9 out of 10 Vietnamese people who are aware of Cho Tot when asking about selling and buying in any category. We serve more than 10 million users on our site who generate approximately 1 billion page views and nearly 2 million new listed items every month.

Whether you are looking for a house, a car, a job, a pet or a piece of vegetable, you can find on Cho Tot. Whether you are passing things you once loved or giving them to people in need, Cho Tot is here to assist. With technology, we build a simple, efficient and reliable platform that meets all the wants and needs in all stages of your life.

Chotot now has more than 60 diverse categories on the platform, which belong to 4 verticals: property, vehicles, job, and goods. You can easily find them on our website or app, and play with both buyer and seller role. On Chotot.com, we focus on preloved items - the thing that makes us differently from the others. Cho Tot pursues recommerce with the spirit of supporting conscious consumerism and sustainable development.
