How to Sign Up for a Craigslist Profile

By Ashley Watters, Abshier House

Craigslist is a great free place to buy and sell things. Unlike most sites that claim to be free, but require that you activate an account, Craigslist can be used anonymously. However, if you regularly post ads, signing up for an account does have some benefits. Having a free Craigslist account grants you access to a control panel where you can manage all of your ads in one place. In the Control Panel, you can reopen expired or deleted ads which auto-fills your information, saving you time when posting.
