Have bought a lot of things of Kijiji. My sprayer, tandem, disk, air cart. Also have sold lots through it too. Never would have found the buyers I did through WP or other papers. Same with buying, the pieces I bought would more than likely have sold the first phone call from a paper add. I did buy my tandem 2hrs after it was posted.....was the 2nd call, 1st was a telemarketer.

Usually scan the adds daily. Like seeing what is for sale and if there is anything interesting. Don't like all the dealer adds that are showing up. If I wanted to buy from a dealer I would go through my local dealer or flip through the farm papers.

Agreed!!!!

Can anyone tell me how to filter out dealer vs owner? I can't seem to find the option anywhere

I just found it myself after it was mentioned there is that search option. Open a new search such as vehicles or heavy equipment and at the top of the first page of the search there are three choices "Any" "Owner" "Dealer" .

It's too bad Kijiji is like that now. I know a couple guys that are independent salesman and use Kijiji and if everyone starts filtering the dealer ads they won't get much advertising.

While in the app looking at listings. Press refine in the top right corner. Bottom of the page is a "for sale by". Choose owner

Wouldn't mind the auction ad if it was for the next week but showing tractors for June 2014 is pretty sh*tty way to advertise.

Is it just me or is there no way to filter out the dealer ads on kijiji now?

Starting to get really annoyed with them. Almost no use trying to look through the ads anymore, just use the search feature.

Weeks ago I complained about the dealer filter thing, they claimed a computer glitch, I say bull crap.

Made the mistake of accidentally clicking the dealer instead of owner option one time posting an ad myself, tried to charge me 10$ plus 10 for each of my other ads I had! Either kijiji is making killing off of all these dealers who post 50+ ads daily! or they somehow found a way around it. I kinda feel sorry for the poor shmuck who's gotta reenter all those every morning! But still, if I wanted to see what all these guys have on their lots, I'd go through the ag dealer or iron search
I think some dealers regularly fly under the radar as owners? (And I call them on it)
