Classified advertising has successfully moved from newspapers and printed media to the web-space. Here they appear in a little bit different, with some variations, however, are even more effective. Internet classifieds are longer and easy searchable, local and distinguished in regard to urgency and target audiences.
A great example of web-classifieds in action is Jiji.ng – the place, where users can post and find literally everything. There is no sense to describe all the advantages of this service – you just have to try everything personally.
There is only one thing you should know for the start: though Jiji can’t say it is completely free of scammers, there are much less of them than in other similar websites. Every new user has to pass verification, so there are only few of those who can do it cheating. Every seller is a person with a reputation – a good reputation! Positive reviews and feedback aren’t just pleasant for this person but also indicate that other users can completely trust him.
Also, everyone can report about suspicious activity (asking for payment in advance, for instance) and take a part in the development of the website by helping its security systems.
Maybe you won’t be impressed by hearing about an impressive selection of stuff and convenience in using.
However, you should be impressed by the actual numbers. Only during 2015, Jiji attracted over 36 million of people. It resulted in 400,000 newly registered users, 300,000 successful deals, and 20,000 scammers detected before they could deceive someone.
