ZippyTrader.com is your local Charleston online classifieds. We don't pass you off to the nearest big city like some other sites do. At ZippyTrader.com, you can shop Charleston or as many miles around as you like. How far you are willing to shop is up to you.
Other sites try to lure you in with free ads, then charge you for extras. At ZippyTrader.com our classified ads are truely 100% free, including features that others consider extras:
• Unlimited words - We don't limit your words or charge extra for word count. Every ad has virtually unlimited space for whatever you want to say about your item.
• Map Links - We include a link to Google Maps showing the location of Charleston, or directly to your street address if you provide it. Excellent for real estate ads, yard sales, etc.
• Photos - They say a picture is worth a thousand words. We think that is especially true when it comes to selling an item. Nothing sells better than a good photo. We give you space for 16 of them to present your item to buyers in detail. That's enough to present every room in a house plus exterior shots, or multiple anges of any item.
• Video - The only thing more powerful than a photo is video. Your ad can be linked to a YouTube video for the ultimate show and tell.
• QR Codes - Each ad gets a unique quick response barcode that you can download and use on flyers, signs and more. The QR code points to a mobile optimized version of your ad so you can get instant response to your ad wherever the buyer may be.
Classified ads are the best way to get the maximum price when selling your items. Studies have shown that classified ads consistently fetch a higher price than equal items at yard sales. This is because classifieds shoppers are savvy buyers looking for a great value on a specific item, while yard sale shoppers are simply out hunting for bargains (often to resell for a profit in the classifieds).
Items like electronics, appliances and furniture are better sold through the classifieds. Free classifieds also make it easy to list small and inexpensive items that simply were not practical with paid classifieds. You still may find it better to group similar small items together for a package price. It is not uncommon for our sellers to have a virtual yard sale, posting dozens or even hundreds of items online. There is no limit to the number of items you can post. Best of all, you never have to worry about being rained out.
Our Charleston employment ads have always been 100% free. In fact, we gladly accept most business ads in our free classifeds. Service businesses can post in our services section, and any business can advertise new or used items for sale in the merchandise sections. All we ask is that the ad is for a specific item. It's OK if you have more than one of the item.
At ZippyTrader.com you never have to worry about deadlines. You can post your ad 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your ad will usually be published within minutes, but our anti-spam, anti-fraud system may take more time to process some ads, so don't worry if your ad doesn't appear right away.
Never forget that ZippyTrader.com is about making buying and selling in Charleston a better experience for you. We welcome your thoughts about what you like, don't like, or features you would like to see included.
