Default Craigs List

Just a couple questions about Craigs List. Is it free and what do you have to do to sell something on it. Is it just a registering thing and then list it? Fee's involved. Kind of a plain jane site so couldn't find to much on how to sell and what is required.

Thanks,
Corey

Totally free.. Just register, and start making ads..

Yep, it's FREE to us little guys...
Businesses using it pay...

Also, based on what happened to me, I had a nice china cabinet listed.
I receive an email where they want it and are willing to pay my price.
They go on to say that they will arrange for a pickup and pay with a check, because they don't have that much cash.

I requested CASH at time of pickup...

Nothing heard from them....

You are warned about checks, even Cashier & Money Orders are being forged!

Yes. I think I bypassed a bad Sale...

Take CASH and NOTHING ELSE BUT CASH. IMEO

Good luck.

Have Fun,

It's free to post, you don't even need to register. I just sold 2 things on there this week(an old lawn mower $25, and a ridgid shop air cleaner $60), and no problems. I only deal with people in person, and only let them know where I live after we've gone back and forth a few times in email or on the phone.

The funny thing is, most of the folks I've been dealing with are using their work email addresses, and I'm able to get an idea of where they're at ahead of time. I only accept cash or trade.

In my opinion, its no different than the classified ads in the newspaper, just a whole lot cheaper, faster, and you can edit your ad on the fly.

I highly recommend NOT using your primary email address. If your internet provider gives you multiple email accounts, set one up just for Craigslist, so you don't get spammed.

Bob, why does it suck? I like free and not much difference really than a online trader magazine. Worth a shot... if not will try the wifes work newsletter and then the local paper. Have pretty good luck with the wifes newsletter. She works at Boys Town and all the family houses etc. often are looking for woodworking equipment. I actually met and sold my old table saw Worth a shot!

I just purchased a Craftsman 10" radial arm saw that was posted on Craigs list. The plug was cut off the power cord, the fence was gone and the work surface needs to be replaced. Not sure of the year, but it runs smooth. Some general clean up and maintenance and I am sure I will be very happy with my $10 investment.

If you are not happy with it Mike I imagine that there will be a queue waiting to give you at least a 100% profit! Once you get it up and working I guarantee that you will wonder how you have coped all these years without a radial arm saw.
