  • Atish – I agree with you there are many benefits as you have said but again the down side of it is you get exposed to spamming as your contact details are exposed to public. The other risk is that we will have to meetup with strangers to make the sale happen which comes with potential risk and hence we need to make sure we meet the buyers at a public place which is well crowded. I normally would prefer marketplace like ebay where the risks are equally spread between seller and buyer. I am not against these online classifieds site they have their own benefits and for sure will sell your products faster…only thing is you need to take more precautions while selling your product.
