International Classified Sites Research Archive
« on: May 13, 2021, 10:56:05 am »
This thread is have a list of international classifieds websites that can be used when researching. If you know any that have been missed, reply and we can add it to this post.

1. You can do individual country search on any Ebay by using Advanced Search and choose located in, however some items may not show up due to the Ebay you use and what your location is. For example, people who sell from say... Germany but only ship to EU will have listings that won't show up on Ebay US but will show up on an EU Ebay. Also, when searching on international using advanced, make sure to change Item Location option from Default to Worldwide.

2. Some language knowledge or use of a translator is needed as these are all localised websites.

3. Although not listed, it seems that there are active Facebook Buy/Sell groups for many cities (countries) around the world.

For Québec you can add lespac.com, its popularity is going down in the last few years but is still a place where you can find video games from private sellers.

For France, leboncoin.fr is the #1 classified ads website

For the UK I would add:  https://www.gumtree.com/

Ireland has identical game packaging as UK, but it has separate top classifieds sites - especially since it uses Euro:
https://www.ebay.ie/       (in EUR of course & often sharing stock with DE, NL, FR, etc)
https://www.adverts.ie/   (home grown site)

(Just for completeness, there is also a https://www.gumtree.ie/ but it is way too small to consider)

Apparently many other countries have their own Craigslist hubs. There is a list at the right side of every region's Craigslist page that groups each country with a Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe, Middle East, or Oceania categorization, although I've only found South Korea's hub—in addition to the already-listed United States's—to be active across countries with large gaming communities.

Added those except the taobao since the link you provided doesn't have a search option. If you can find a search option I can put the link. Also no links to any site that does not have any used game listings, or requires a membership or an app to search.

EDIT: removed 58.com for same reasons. The main page just brings up a list of cities and none of them are in China.

That's odd. For me, the link forwards me to Beijing's hub. I can type in a generic search like "ps4" and find relevant results like this one. However, I haven't had much luck with other search inquiries, whether in Chinese or English, so perhaps it isn't worth adding to the list anyway.

Though not directly related, some time ago I did find a great market resource for Iranian games, but it is strictly an online storefront not comprised of classifieds. However, resources like this seem helpful for research in not well-documented regions. Is it worth compiling this information too?

Edit: Although 58.com seems to be rather finnicky with its links for those visiting outside of China. I managed to open it successfully from VGC after several attempts.

58.com uses a lot of cdns that are not on all DNS servers. For example, the site cannot be correctly used with 4.4.4.4 but can with 8.8.8.8.

For outside resources like shops or other websites, I keep a list myself that is in my personal worklog, to get to "some day" so you can make a list if you want but it is not particularly what this thread is about.

Added 3 for Czech Republic.

Also put a note about Facebook groups. When I try to find a classified website to use for searching, to confirm and to put on this list, I typically search google with:

reddit country buy and sell

As this usually will find a thread on reddit where someone asks for a site to buy or sell used items on. In many of the responses I see, people say to look at x city Facebook because there are groups. Certainly this is the case, I know of those groups for my city, but apparently there are many cities around the world that have a lot of people using Facebook for this kind of stuff. Even Czech Republic or India and probably every large city. There have been some instances where I was not able to find a country website but know such FB groups exist.

If you know how to find these groups, you can post instructions here. I am not certain it would be viable to list out those sections in this thread.
