Well for sure it became slower in some ways. But this summer when I was selling old furniture from my greece property. I had some luck and sold everything pretty fast for a good price. I guess it depends on a product mostly.

I had no issues selling on CL lately or ever. Maybe it's still pretty popular in my area or something.

It's slower due to much more competition/different venues now available to sell these days.

It's also ty due to massive spamming from business owners and other crap have to wade through due to folks plastering ads with laundry lists of keywords.
Cross posting from other areas, etc. etc.
Oh and the idiots who post/advertise in the wrong sections.

YES. THAT. I use a fake name these days on Craigslist. Usually the first reply to any post is "I am really interested in your [exact cut/paste of my ad title]. I will send you a 6 digit google verification code so I can ensure you are real."

I actually really appreciate those. I play along with them except I intentionally give them the wrong code several times (at least until they stop contacting me) then I start spamming them with non-sense auto texts (hit one letter, then only use words that your phone auto selects until you have a sentence that kind of, but not really, makes sense).

I have much better success finding what I need on eBay and OfferUp.

Scored a pristine 50 year old Japanese electric guitar last week and
a like new case for one of my other 50 year old guitars on OfferUp.

Old guy with flip phone and no need for I-anything. Still spend time
searching CL but rarely find anything. 3G cell phone tech works fine
for me so of course Verizon has to kill it. Their 4G flip phones are a joke
so I'm looking for a carrier that doesn't require a data plan.

Still getting by with DSL. I surf from home. Will not Facebook ever.
My praise band mates think I'm a dinosaur, and they might be right.
Modern tech is the new crack: Just Say No.

I had only used CL until I saw this thread. Posted the exact same ad on FB Marketplaces and sold all three items within 4 days. They'd been on CL for almost a month at the same price. Received more spam and random questions from CL too. I will keep using CL, but will explore other options next time I sell stuff.

This is a search for AMC Gremlin:



Such a bummer. Why don't they control this?

Putting an ad on Craigslist is opening yourself up to a deluge of spam and catfishing. Its rare that an actual sale will occur it seems. And oh yeah, selling a complete vehicle is no longer free. Costs 5$ now.

I am bummed what is happening to CL. It is dead. I have been looking through facebook marketplace and I am amazed at how much stuff is there. I ended up finding a john deere cylinder head that was a deal. I looked at it for a few days and decided to contradict what I said I would never do and signed up to access the sellers contact info. Bam I get blocked from market place. I look as to why this is and it was because I was a new account. Looking online I found this happening to a LOT of people. Some waited 4 months to get access. Given the govt level information FB has on everyone including non members, I am surprised they would do that. They know who I am. They know who you are.
I sent them an email saying that blocking a person from a purchase was just insanely stupid. I then deleted the account. I have no use for facebook for sure now. I check offer up and a few others. Everybody seems to be on FB.
Remember the 90's? I do and I miss them.

Nice thing about CL is you can tell it to search in titles only and block duplicates. I wish you could do that on ebay.

Weeds out the guys with a huge list of junk at the bottom of their ads and who post the same thing every day.

I use CL all the time. Sold a car on there last week. Posted it around 2pm Sunday with 7 people texting by 11pm. Sold it Monday 8am to the first looker. Not one hit from FB Market place during the same time period.
