Used propane stoves can be purchased online through auction sites such as eBay and local classifieds sites such as Craigslist. Some retail sites such as Amazon also feature used propane stoves sold by third-party sellers.
To locate used propane stoves on eBay, users can navigate to the stoves and appliances section and filter listings by factors such as manufacturer, price range and fuel type. Shoppers can also conduct a keyword search on all active listings on the site. Each listing for propane stoves consists of a picture of the unit, a description of its condition and available features and its pricing information. Sellers on eBay have the option to list items under an auction model or an immediate purchase option. The auction model includes a starting sale price and a set period of time in which users are able to place bids on the item.
Listings on Craigslist typically include a description of the stove and its condition, and some listings also include pictures. Listings are organized based on geographic location, such as a major city within a specific state. Craigslist does not offer any payment processing features, which means that it is up to the buyer and the seller to come to an agreement on the method of payment.
