Selling On Craigslist

How do I place items on Craigslist that I want to sell?



Selling On Craigslist

It is very easy. Go to, and click on your state. Then go to the left hand side. It says, Post Classified. Then follow the directions. It is very easy. (07/07/2008)

Selling On Craigslist

To be successful in selling on Craigslist it helps to be in a area that is heavily populated. And where others know about and use Craigslist themselves. Of course, if you have an item that others really want to purchase, it does help you find that new forever home for your item. (07/08/2008)

Selling On Craigslist

When you are ready to sell, make sure you have really good photos. They don't have to be professional, but if your item is small enough to fit on a scanner screen, it makes a nice shot. If you have a digital camera, you can sometimes edit for a closer detail of a shot too large to fit on your scanner. For instance, you may want to shoot a chair, then lay a cushion from it on the scanner so people can see a close up of the fabric, etc. When you post, your account remains in your account mailbox for 45 days free.


You can go back and edit, delete if the items sells, add more text, etc. When you find you have perhaps made a mistake on the photos, you can delete them and download the right one, with little effort. Keep in mind, that if you have a prickly person out there, who wants you off the "competition", they can be "flagged" and that means that someone can delete your items. I have had this happen a few times. Sometimes, say you have a lot of crafts or clothes or such to sell, you may get some feedback from people saying that you should just set up a website and invite them all to it, etc.

I have even gotten flagged, because I was looking for a piece of Tupperware, and people sell that stuff all over the place. Who knows. You will have to put in the "code" that they give you, and click on the submit or post button, and you can't just push the enter button, or you will keep getting wrapped back to that same screen. Good luck. (07/08/2008)
