Default Listing items on Craigslist for shipping

I have been eyeing CL lately as an option to possibly offload some spare inventory without risking ebay/amazon accounts, but was wondering what success any of you have had with listing items around the country that you will need to ship. I listed two awhile back but had no real luck, but if I could crack this egg... CL has huge potential because people are almost as familiar with CL as they are with ebay, but it seems like most people want their stuff locally (which, admittedly, is what classifieds are for). Has anybody had any success with this?

I've had a lot of local success with Craigslist but other then that, eBay and Amazon is where you want to be.

Craigslist is a great way to unload your leftover vero junk that a person would get stuck with if they sold that kind of thing on ebay/amazon.......At least thats what my FRIEND says....LOL

Been fooling around with CL and Kijiji to list some items and try to direct some traffic to website

Kijiji [ebay classifieds] keeps moving my ads to retail and getting zero traffic - So my findings, its a bust
Kijiji Canada is pretty good. I have only used it local. But always sell whats on there in a day or two
Craigslist - Getting 20 or so extra visits to my site a day. So not bad. Thats with two cities posted. I have noticed within 24 hours traffic is gone, so you need to re-post lots. And if you try and list same ad you need to change up all the wording or they wont let you. Even if you delete old one. So doing it regularly and in a bunch of cities would be a fair amount of work.

I know CL is the big guy I guess, but every bit helps.
Not looking for eBay killers naturally. But any extra edge in sales is always welcome!

Any other free classified sites and even auction sites you are using with some traffic success?

In my opinion, craiglist is strictly local, I have tried gearing it like ebay with shipping, even cheap shipping or free shipping and cheap prices no success. Only locally can be successful I think. also, i havent used CL in a long time but when I did they clearly had a huge bold and yellow message that said all cross border transactions were a scam to warn buyers, not sure if they have that now. Also a few years back chinese started to abuse CL hardcore with posting spammy message with pictures of nike shoes and 49 USD, bla bla, I think that would confuse ppl even more...

I bought 1 or 2 items through mail from people on Craigslist. I was nervous and skeptical as all hell, but to my surprise and delight, they turned out to be honest and shipped my stuff out.

But in general, I HATE CL. I used it yeah, but I dread it. CL seems to be a magnet for the biggest douche bags around. If they aren't a tire kicking buyer with a sob story, they're some lazy loser who's trying to get eBay prices for their junk. I hear "well, I can get ___ for it on eBay" so much, it's predictable.

If that's the case, go sell it on eBay you lazy slob!

+1 to above post, I love CL but it does seem to be a magnet for a ton of goofballs.
