  1. Hmmm, maybe this is will cut down on the number of listings from dealers who bloat the site by listing their ads as both “dealer” and “owner.” No amount of reporting seems to discourage this spammy stuff, so now the honest get penalized along with the rest.

    Seriously, new office furniture listed in antiques as well regular furniture for months on end, trucks with photoshopped backgrounds being sold by an “individual” but listed all over the country, instead of locally? I can’t help thinking fees will eventually be added to all categories for using their site instead of just enforcing their boundaries.

  2. Two years ago they started charging “dealers” in Maine $3 an ad for lots of categories. I bailed and have been using Facebook Marketplace instead with a lot better success and NO FEES. I offer shipping on smaller items and customers as far away as New Jersey have bought them with no extra marketing effort. Only downside is that there’s a lot more messaging to get a sale, but I have the opportunity to upsell during those conversations.
