Some online classified ads websites for buying and selling items include Craigslist.org, eBayClassifieds.com, Recycler.com, ClassifiedAds.com and Oodle.com, as of 2015. Each site allows users to create listings and upload pictures to sell items and browse through current listings to locate items such as electronics, clothing, car parts or musical instruments.
Craigslist.org organizes its content according to location, requiring users to select a state and major city before viewing any listings. Items for sale appear under the For Sale section, with numerous subcategories for the different types of items available. To post an item on the site, the seller must provide a valid email address through which she may manage the listing.
Sellers must create accounts to post items for sale on eBayClassifieds.com, though doing so is free.
Recycler.com features a search tool that allows users to enter a keyword along with a city and state to view items in that location and the surrounding area. The tool includes a slider for expanding the search radius from 0 miles to the entire nation. ClassifiedAds.com allows users to respond to any listing with its messaging system rather than making external contact. Oodle.com also offers tools for searching within multiple cities as well as through multiple categories.
