 Build an App Profile


Kijiji is a community where trust matters. Anyone using the Kijiji app will now have the ability to create a free profile to increase their credibility with other members. Whether you’re the buyer or the seller, you’ll be able to view profiles, create your own, and get to know each other before you make a deal!

When you click on a member’s profile, you will see 5 pieces of information:

  • Their nickname
  • Their profile photo (if added)
  • Their average response time
  • How long they’ve been a member of Kijiji
  • Whether or not their email has been confirmed

How Can I Look at a Profile?

Both buyer and seller profiles can be viewed once they have sent you a message. Open your Messages section in the app and click on the photo or icon next to their last message.

To see a seller’s profile before contacting them, click on their nickname or photo on the Ad Detail page.


Can I See My Own Profile?

Yes, you can! To see your own profile information, open the Kijiji app. If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, click on My Kijiji. If you’re using an Android phone, click on the hamburger menu and select My Kijiji.

The information shown at the top of the screen will be what other members will see when clicking on your profile.


Do I Have to Include a Photo?

Adding a photo can make you appear more genuine and help build trust in transactions, however, they are completely optional. If you’re not comfortable using a photo, that’s okay too!


How do I Add A Profile Photo?

Open the Kijiji app.
If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, click My Kijiji.
If you’re using an Android phone, click on the Hamburger menu, then select My Kijiji.
Click on the person icon.
Select a photo from your camera’s library or take a new one.
Click Done.
