Post Craigslist $5.00/30 day posting fee for Cars & Trucks

Guys,

Long time no post.

This website and craigslist to me will always be linked as I discovered this forum and started doing a lot of Civic shopping at the same time.

So when i saw today that I'd be charged to post on Craigs, I came here to see if anyone had posted about this and nope, not a peep.

This really grinds my gears as I'd never pay to list a car on there, I'd rather ebay my car and pay the percentage then have to deal with lowballers from craigslist on a paid service.

What do you guys think this change will do craigs? sink?

well it sure is good for buyers as they now know that the seller cares enough to pay therefore must be somewhat legit. I guess it weeds out scammers and spammers.

Is it 5 dollars for 30 days and you can post as many as you want?

Maybe all the lowballers and scammers will move strictly to offerup/letgo etc.

Does it cost to list on autotrader?

Not bad at all if you want to sell. I'm tired of seeing all these spam ads from broke down car dealerships. Same goes for wheels/tires.

when I was looking for a van I called on like 4 of them that ended up being a dealer.

One was some scam dealership that got shut down and dude was posing as a private seller and selling busted cars that would last a week.

Maybe it'll bring back some good to CL.

Man they want to charge you $5 on something you'll sell for $1000s of dollars. The audacity of them!

CL buyers can be flakes but there's a lot of worthless CL ads that were put together with zero effort too. Hopefully it cuts back on them as well.

Are we really complaining about a $5 listing fee for a car?

I'm surprised this wasn't implemented sooner by CL with all the BS for sale ads that litter their pages

What's the average price of a car being sold on CL though, $1742.38 and half a pound of weed?

I donít mind lowballs at all. Help price a product. I generally donít sell anything though because itís not worth the time.

As for craigslist this is great. Easy way to filter out noise.

This likely means the good deals will leave Craiglist for other platforms. People selling their cars for cheap don't want to deal with paying for their ad.

The problem here is that a well thought out and thorough posting, which goes into the full detail of the item while in your care, will get ignored while the same item with almost no description at all and a couple really shitty pictures will have your inbox getting blown up.

I'll pay the $5 to list on CL, along with all the other big players to increase exposure and get my car sold as quickly as possible.

Honestly it's a good idea, dealers/people would list the same car 20 times. You want to look for a specific car and see 50 listings and most of them are the same car. Not to mention people that flag your car for deletion so their car shows up more. So if someone wants to post 10 listings of the same car they have to pay each time and you can't flag and have an add deleted for competition purposes. You also have to repay again after 30 days so hopefully this cuts down on the junk and repetitive posts.

Its the same because its spam. By forcing the seller to pay a fee it cleans up the list in a big way and shows cars that want to be sold not some fake *** spammer. It also puts full notice on the ad the seller is listing and clears it out if the retention is over instead of letting the ad linger too long because some people just don't know how to remove an ad once the item has been sold.

FB Marketplace is just as bad as CL. Post one whack *** picture and no damn description. Message the idiots to ask questions and they get all pissy fit.

Post your **** up with detailed info and good quality pics and no one will ask ****. Let the car sell itself.

craigslist has been charging to list job postings too
I can live with $5 for a 30 day ad. I hope it will cut down on the obvious bullshit listings and spam.
