Craigslist Best Practices and Time Savers


  • Once an item you have listed for sale has been sold, delete the ad as soon as possible. Do not edit the post to say "Item Gone" since this just wastes everyone's time.

  • Try not to email a seller simply to ask if the item is already taken. If possible, skip this time consuming step and combine asking if it's there with your contact info or a date you would like to gather the item. I've gotten this email too many times to count and most of the time I never get a reply! That equals a lot of wasted time on my end and nothing sold.

  • Contacting buyers or sellers thru email takes time! Your email could go directly to their spam box; maybe they only check email once a day. If a phone number is provided, it is generally the method the seller wishes for you to contact them.
