Kijiji is an online advertising service fully owned by eBay. Anybody can post their ad on Kijiji and buy and sell their stuff. Kijiji has a wide range of second-hand products in very good quality. Kijiji was launched in 2005 and got very popular very quickly. Kijiji is available for 300 cities in Canada and it is also very popular in Canada as Alexa gave Kijiji a ranking of 13 in web traffic. Kijiji is also famous in Italy, Hongkong, Taiwan etc. Kijiji offers the same options like Craigslist but Kijiji gets much less U.S traffic than Craigslist. But when it comes to Canada no one can beat Kijiji. Craigslist gets 3 times less traffic than Kijiji in Canada. First Kijiji was launched as a start-up by eBay to expand their areas of business and invite more traffic.
In August of 2008, Kijiji rebranded itself and came to India by the name of Quikr and in 2009 did the same to Germany and changed its name to eBay Kleinanzeigen. Kijiji has done this so many times in order to expand their business, eBay changes the name and rebrands itself for different countries. But the basic idea is the same. Post Ad to sell your things and wait for a potential buyer. Kijiji works as a middleman in all this and creates an environment where the seller and the buyer can meet, chat, discuss the product, negotiate and come to an agreement for the product. Kijiji also ensures the quality of the product so that the buyer did not get fooled by the seller. Kijiji has faced much competition in this area and their main rival is Craigslist. Kijiji has lots of products and services to offer so make sure to check Kijiji before your next purchase.
