  • Craigslist:Doing business on craigslist can be described as easy, if the seller follows some simple rules of common sense. To list an item up for sale, for example, all is needed is a computer with internet access and a working email address. A good picture of the item guarantees a faster response, and up to 4 photos can be uploaded to craigslist, all for free. The onlookers browse through the different categories on their local city’s craigslist (each craigslist website is broken down into city locations) and when they see a product they like and want to inquire more about, they click on the link provided for that purpose on each ad. They can also copy and paste this address later to the email service of their preference. Another option is to make a direct telephone call to the numbers provided freely on the ads, but not all ads include phone contact information.
