How to Post Ads in Different States on Craigslist
By Robert Schrader
Create a Craigslist account. It isn't necessary to open an account to post on Craigslist, but doing so makes the process of posting easier. Click "My Account," then "Sign Up for An Account." Enter your email address, the required "CAPTCHA" sequence then click "Continue." Enter your first and last name, and a desired password, then click "Sign Up."
Go to the Craigslist website of the state and city where you want to post your first ad. Move your mouse to the right side of the Craigslist homepage, click "US States" then select the name of the state where you want to post. Click the name of the city where you want to post.
- Craigslist explicitly advises against transacting with users who don't live in your state or city. Avoid posting ads that require monetary transactions on other states' or cities' Craigslist sites.
