Used kitchen stoves can be purchased online through various classifieds sites such as OLX.com or Craigslist as fo 2015. Internet auction sites such as eBay also frequently contain listings for used stoves.
OLX.com allows users to anonymously create listings for various types of goods for sale, including different varieties of used kitchen stoves. Users have the option of including pictures and a written description of each item's condition and features in each listing, but are not required to do so. The minimum information each listing has includes a title, a price, the type of item being sold and the location of the seller. Users have the option of listing a phone number for sellers to contact, though this is not required as the site features a messaging system based on the poster's email address.
EBay and similar sites allow users to sell items through an auction format, which means sellers place a minimum starting price and a sale duration for each listing. During this sale period, buyers can place bids on the item, and the user who has the highest bid at close of the auction receives the item. It is also possible for sellers to place a "Buy It Now" price on items that allows customers to pay a higher price to immediately purchase an item and bypass the entire auction process.
