Lots of people earn a good living — or supplement their income — by through ecommerce on eBay, although there are times when selling items over a local classified site makes a lot more sense in terms of pure logistics. And there’s no reason why you can’t do both. If you’ve never considered selling on Kijiji, this is as good a time as any, and our sister site, Ecommerce-guide.com, offers 12 tips on using the free classified network to reach a local audience.
If you’re unfamiliar with Kijiji, it’s a free local online network for posting buy, sell, trade, jobs and other classified ads. Kijiji (pronounced “ka-gee-gee”) has individual sites for specific cities in several countries including the United States and Canada. Local classifieds are a good option for online sellers who have larger items that are expensive to ship, items that are hard to sell “sight unseen” or lower-value items where listing fees can cut profits.
