All across America the "shopper" newspaper has been a community favorite. A place where one can place classified ads for free, making it practical to advertise unwanted items of any value. The publication is made possible by sponsor ads from local businesses. This provides an effective advertising resource that almost any business can afford. Sadly, shopper publications across America are losing popularity and failing as people shift to online classifieds. As they fail, local businesses lose their only source for affordable advertising. While we can't stop technology, we can change the way technology affects our community.
ZippyTrader.com was born in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia to provide free online classifieds that are family-friendly, secure, and maintain a sense of community. Like traditional community shopper publications, ZippyTrader.com classifieds are free, made possible by support from your neighborhood businesses through our affordable display ads. Though ZippyTrader.com has quickly grown to cover every city in the USA, we remain dedicated to supporting each community at the local level. We achieve this through our Community Partners program. As a local owner/operator in your community, your Community Partner is responsible for local business advertising and day-to-day operation of your community ZippyTrader pages. Because they are a member of your community and know it well, they are an effective line of defense against fraud. Your Community Partner is a local business in your community, so 99 percent of all revenue stays in your community. We are adding Community Partners every day. If you are looking for a great income opportunity right in your community, contact us to see if your city is still available.
Other classified sites have been in the news for everything from scams to questionable "adult" activity. To assure a family friendly environment we have no chat rooms, message forums, or adult oriented categories. And while no system is perfect, we think we have the safest classifieds around. To maintain a high level of security, every ad is analyzed by over a dozen fraud filters to automatically stop ads before they make it into the system. To date, ZippyTrader.com has been 100% scam free.
