A variety of goods can be sold on the St. Catherines, Ontario, Kijiji site including home goods, electronics, clothing and video games. All items on the site sold through a classifieds model, which means it is up to the seller to handle all phases of the transaction.
Kijiji allows users to create free classifieds-style advertisements on the site to sell various goods and services, as well as offer other items such as jobs and apartments for rent. Though the site is owned by eBay, as of March 2015, it differs significantly in terms of general function and process. Whereas eBay requires its users to sell an item to any party that initiates a purchase, Kijiji users have full discretion as to who can purchase their wares. The site also does not offer any means or tools for processing payments, nor does it offer either party any form of protection or recourse for issues that arise during a transaction.
The seller has complete control over the content of the postings made on the site, which means that any individual guarantees or promises cannot be enforced by Kijiji. As with other classifieds sites, it is up to the seller to keep postings and inventory organized and deal with all responses to potential buyers.
