Kijiji Basics

What are the benefits of registering for Kijiji?

Becoming a registered Kijiji user makes managing your ads a breeze. Once you sign up, you’ll have access to “My Kijiji” where you can do just about anything in a few simple clicks—from promoting, editing or deleting your ad to managing your profile and settings.

How do I post an ad on Kijiji?

Post an ad on Kijiji in 3 simple steps:

  • Select the 'Post Ad' button at the top of the homepage.
  • Follow the steps and fill out all required fields. Add pictures and other details if relevant.
  • Hit the 'Post Your Ad' button at the bottom of the page and you're good to go!
How do I edit an ad?

“Sign In” to your account at the top of the homepage, and then via “My Kijiji”, select the “My Ads” page from the drop down menu. From there, click on the “Edit” link next to the ad you’d like to modify, make any changes you want and finish by clicking “Save Changes.” Simple! If you don’t have a registered Kijiji account, just click the “Edit My Ad” link in the activation email you received when you first posted your ad.

How long do ads stay active?

Ads in almost every category stay on Kijiji for 60 days. A few days before the ad is set to expire, we’ll send you an email with an option to repost, which will extend your ad by another 60 days and bring it back up to the top of its category.

Where can I find my ad?

It can take up to 24 hours for ads to go through our system before they’re posted. So if you don’t see yours yet, don’t worry! To make sure your ad is pending, just sign into your “My Kijiji” account and click on “My Ads.” You’ll see the ad under the “Pending Ads” tab.

If you already have an ad, just go to “My Kijiji,” click on “Promote My Ads” and choose the feature that’s best for you. If you’re posting a new ad, click the “Post Ad” button at the top of the homepage, check the “Promote My Ad” table for pricing and select your feature.

How can I stay safe on Kijiji?

For the most part, Kijiji transactions are totally safe and problem-free. But just to be sure, use your common sense. The best way to stay safe is to make sure all transactions are made locally, in a public location, in person and with a secure means of payment.

Bump up

Bump up your ad to pole position.

Bump Ups help you stand out by raising your ad in the search results. This nifty feature gives you fresh views and keeps you one step ahead of the other sellers.

Why Choose Bump Up?

  • Got leads that didn’t turn into sales? Bump Ups give you the extra push you need to find the right buyer for you.
  • Ads are reposted automatically so you don’t have to recreate your ad from scratch – that way you save time and don’t have to worry about a thing!
  • Bump Ups can cost less than the Top Ad feature depending on which package you purchase.
  • Ads tend to receive 40% of their views in the first three days.3 Bump Up recreates this pattern for additional views by sending your ad to the top of the listings page.

Benefits & Tips

  • Bump up multiple ads instead of having to repost one at a time.
  • The best time to bump up is midway between when you post your ad and the date it expires.
  • If you delete and repost your ad, you’ll lose your counter view and everyone watching your ad will lose your listing. The Bump Up feature lets you keep your counter view and seller credibility intact.

How it works

Bump Ups push your ad back up to the top of the regular listings, appearing on the first page in its category and in any relevant searches.

Your ad will remain in the top spot until another Kijiji ad is posted or bumped up.

You can use the Bump Up feature in all categories except Events and Garage sales.

Ads usually get more than 40% of their total views in the first three days.3 Bumping up your ad recreates this pattern to attract more sales for a longer period of time.

The Bump Up Feature lets you keep your view counter intact to show the level of interest on your listing.

The Bump Up feature will reset the post date of your ad, but it won’t extend its duration.
