What's the popular online classified ad used in Switz?

Particularly, Lausanne.

In Canada, we use "craigslist" and "kijiji" that are popular online classified ad sites.

I make extensive use of these things to survive off my meagre budget, and I think it'd be very helpful if someone would be willing to direct me to the right website

Thank you very much for your help.

Anibis.ch is a lot like Criagslist. Tutti.ch is another, but smaller.

The other large site is Ricardo.ch but its an auction type site that you need to bid on items. I've never used it, I'm sure other people will comment on it

I use Ricardo a lot.

For rarer stuff I use the German Ebay as Germany is a bigger market so there is more likely to be somebody who has what I need or wants what I have, if it's a very rare or specialist item. It helps having an address in Germany though to which they can deliver as many German sellers won't ship stuff to outside of Germany. I normally provide the adress of a German friend.

Re: What's the popular online classified ad used in Switz?

If I want to sell something or buy second hand in Lausanne, I go to the WRS classified section.

You get good results when selling and if you're in the market to buy, LOTS of departing expats in our local area selling often quite new stuff.

http://www.worldradio.ch/wrsclassifieds/

(Unfortunatey, they possibly won't be around much longer which is a shame. I'd really miss their classifieds)

All of them are infiltrated by scammers. The mods try to stop them, but they are not fool proof. I have received attempts on Ricardo and Tutti, you just have to be careful, and check the seller lives here before sending money.

Locals seem to love gratis-inserate.ch

It's gotten a bit better, but still somewhat chaotic.

That's mostly geared to the Swiss German part, and nothing's in French, never a good sign.

Anibis is Lausanne is the major one, along with http://www.petitesannonces.ch. If it's housing, you can also use http://www.homegate.ch.
