Many of you may already know this, but many probably do not. When you are looking to either buy or sell some used stuff online, eBay isn’t the only game in town. For an equally great location, check out your local classifieds on craigslist.org.
Craigslist, while it’s appearance is overly minimal, is actually quite a valuable resource for buying and selling. There are no adds on the site and no fees to use it. Additionally, the site is used by millions of people every day which makes it an ideal marketplace. While the site’s appearance, again, is minimal the functionality is everything you need as you can search in categories by keywords and price.
The big drawback is you have no buyer protection like eBay and Paypal offer as typically people are going to want cash upfront for whatever you are buying. So just be wary of the scams and Craigslist will be a great resource for you.
