Craigslist Will Soon Start Charging to List a Car for Sale


Come April 15, Craigslist will start charging  $5 for your listing , it will no longer be free Reddit noted .  The public announcement of the change can be seen by opting to post a
“for sale by owner” listing on Craigslist, which takes a user to a page to click which category they want to put their listing in. The cars and trucks option has a green note next to it, telling users that on April 15, posting a vehicle ad by owner will no longer be free.

That puts owner listings in the same boat as dealer listings, which Craigslist already charges $5 each for.

Craigslist  was reached for more information on the purpose of the $5 fee and to ask where all this charge applies, like whether it’s limited to certain areas. We’ll update this story if we hear back.

It’s never fun for the person paying when things go from free to not free, but, in the case of Craigslist vehicle listings, this probably isn’t the worst thing. The car pages on Craiglist are full of scam and bot postings, and some are easier to pick out than others. (But no matter what, they’re still annoying.) Charging $5 per ad can help filter some of those ads out, without posing an astronomical charge for people just trying to get their car sold. It’s also not really that much money.
