How Do I Safely Use Online Classifieds Sites to Sell Something?

Advertising items for sale on internet classified sites is a great way to spread the word to likely buyers, but there are risks you take when you do. Your first line of defense is to use reputable services and follow closely any advice the site gives about buying and selling safely.

How to create a safe ad

Communicating with a prospective buyer

Show transportable items in safe, public places

Show non-transportable item at home with plenty of precautions

With these safety precautions in place, your chances of having only positive selling experiences is very high.
