    I have had nothing but good luck with Kijiji.

    I post the items I am trying to sell. I clearly state PICK UP ONLY and give a general idea of where we live. When someone is interested I set up a time for them to come (when it is convenient for both of us) and view the item. I give them my husbands cell number only and tell them to call when they are leaving. If they do not call they are out of luck. LOL

    Anytime someone asks if they can pick it up on a certain date, after viewing it I always have them sign a waiver and leave a deposit. It clearly states that they will pick the item up by such and such a date and if they do not then they forfeit the deposit and I am free to sell the item to another person.

    Sometimes I have several people interested but I always give the first person first dibs. If we can not set up an agreed upon time to view the item I tell them I am offering the item to another person and they either a) make a point to come and see it asap or b) forget about trying to buy it.

    Whatever you do just remember do what is convenient for you. Do not go out of your way to accommodate someone else beyond what you feel is reasonable and if you feel someone is dicking you around they probably are. I can generally tell by the contents of the email received.

    Whatever you do ASK FOR REFERENCES. I would be leary looking for a babysitting on Kijiji without knowing someone that knows that person. How do you know they are credible. This worries me.

    We always ask for references! We have found all our sitters from Kijiji and they were all great. We have had the same sitter now for over 2 years (she can now only do 1 day a week, so now we need another sitter to do the other day a week, LOL). DH also works with someone she used to babysit for, she he will talk to them as well.

    Trying to sell my textbooks on Kijiji yet again... I think I've listed them a few times now. People tend to want them for nothing even when I'm selling them for up to 75% off of the original price. Hoping I can get them sold within the month

    after trying to sell numerous things on kijiji i have learned that you need to add 25% to the price you want to get to your asking price on the ad. hasnt failed me yet, if i want 100$ for something i ask 125, makes people feel like they are getting a deal at 100! #smart

    I am trying to sell my old couch. I have had quite a few replies, so I'm hoping to get asking for it and that it will be gone today!

    Had a good experience today. Went with mom to buy a PVR off a couple who are moving. $80 for a 160 gb that usually runs around $300+. Easy peasy, had all the cables, everything went better than I even expected!

    One thing I find frustrating is when I respond to an ad with questions, etc. and they send me an email asking me to call. Why not just answer my questions in the response? I also dislike ads that say no emails. Why post an ad online if you can't manage emails?

    Just sold my couch for asking! Only down side is he can not get truck until Wednesday or Thursday to pick it up. Already paid for, so at least i know it will be gone one of those 2 days. I will soon have my livingroom back (have the "new" couch and chair standing in my kitchen).
