UsedCalgary.com functions similarly to other online classifieds websites such as Craigslist. All transactions are made directly between buyers and seller, not through the website itself.
Buyers can delve deeper into the listings after selecting a category from the home page by choosing a sub-category on the right side of the page. Additionally, users can search within a category by entering a search term into the Search Category box. This can be further refined by expanding the Filter options underneath the search box. In these options, buyers can set parameters such as a price range and a maximum distance from a specified postal code.
In order to attract more attention to their listings, sellers may opt to purchase an ad booster upgrade. This highlights the listing in a teal box and ensures placement near the top of the category results.
