How Do You Post on Craigslist?


To post on Craigslist, create a free account, sign in, create a post and publish it, and verify the post through the link provided by Craigslist. You can see, edit, create or delete your posts from the Account Management tab on the Craigslist homepage.

On the "post to classifieds" page, you can create a post and set up a variety of options for it, such as the location, category, title and description. The title is what readers see in the classifieds list and the description is where you enter all the relevant information. Photos are optional. Submit your post for publishing by clicking the "Publish" button at the bottom of the page. Craigslist then sends an email containing a confirmation link. Click the link, and within 15 minutes your post should appear.

In the Account Management tab, you can browse ads, edit your account details and your posts, and update billing information for paid posting.

Posts that require users to pay certain fees include vehicles for sale, properties for rent in specified areas, tickets sold by dealers and therapeutic services. Accounts for users who want to publish paid posts require an application process, after which a Craigslist staff member contacts the user for account activation.
