Contact email For your protection, craigslist displays an anonymized email address in your item listing. Buyers email this anonymous address, and the emails are forwarded to your real email address. ■

Enter a title, asking price, and location for your listing, as well as your email address and a posting description.

Click the Add/Edit Images button to include digital photos of your item.

Click the Continue button.

^^ Confirm the listing details, and then click the Continue button to finalize the listing.


Safety First Make sure someone else is with you before you invite potential buyers into your home to look at the item you have for sale—or arrange to meet buyers at a safe, neutral location. ■

Other Services The craiglist site isn't just for buying and selling merchandise. You can also use craigslist for look for or offer services, jobs, and housing. ■
