On the form page, you'll be asked to write a detailed description of the item you're selling.
Before anything, give your ad an eye-catching title. It should be worded in a way that's easy to find in the Craigslist search bar.
The "description" section doesn't have a character limit, but it's best to keep it short yet informative. Use brief sentences and bullet points. List important information first, including the item’s make/manufacturer, model name, dimensions, condition, and, of course, price. Fully disclose any damage or imperfections.
Also, don’t forget to mention why you're selling the item. Are you upgrading, downsizing, or moving? Does your item have any major flaws, or do you simply not want it anymore? Buyers will trust you more if they know why you're getting rid of the item. Be as straightforward and honest in your ad as possible.
Aside from the item description, make sure to leave your contact information. Use your personal/secondary email or phone number.
Experience sellers recommend writing the last digit of your phone number as a word. For instance: "For more information, contact me on the number 123-456-789zero." Supposedly, this prevents scraping software from adding your number to a telemarketer list.
When you've filled in all the required details, click "continue."
