Search listings for items you want
KARTSALE offers users two ways to discover items in which they might be interested. The easiest thing to do is use the search box that appears at the top of the page and enter an appropriate keyword. Alternatively, you can use browse the category tree using the "For Sale" or "Wanted" navigation items at the top of the page.
All of the listings posted to the site are broken down into the following top-level categories:
- Complete Packages
- Tools & Equipment
Post a listing for an item you want to sell
If it's karting related, it's fair game to list on KARTSALE. However, please ensure that all listings posted to the site comply with the KARTSALE listing policy. To add a listing to the site, click any of the "Add Listing" buttons on the site.
You will be asked to provide the following information for the item you are listing:
- Ad Type (i.e. For Sale, or Wanted)
There are other, optional, fields that you can use to describe your item, and we encourage you to be as detailed as possible when creating your listing.
One of the most important things to do when creating a listing is associating a photo. A photo adds credibility to a listing and will grab the attention of potential buyers. Not to mention that buyers often like to see what it is they are buying. When associating a photo to a listing, be sure to use photos that are of good quality, and are no larger than 800 pixels wide, or 800 pixels tall. The files you upload must also be smaller than 500 KB in file size.
All listings are currently set to automatically expire 30 days after they are posted to the site. We do this as a way to keep the site as up-to-date and free from stale listings as possible. Your listing will be displayed on the site until the expiry date passes, or you manually remove the ad from the site.
You can post an unlimited number of listings to the site for FREE! So, what are you waiting for, create your first listing now!
Manage existing listings
All of the ads that you have previously posted are available for review via the "My Listings" page of the site. Note that you will need to be logged into the site in order to view your listings. By default, only your active listings are shown on the "My Listings" page.
To modify active listings, simply click on the title of the listing, make the appropriate changes, and click the "Save" button.
Remove listings from the site
There are times when you may want to remove your listing from the site before it is automatically expired. For example, if you sell an item, you should remove the listing from the site rather than waiting for it to automatically expire. To remove a listing from the site, login to your account, navigate to the "My Listings" page, drill down into the detail for the listing in question, and click the "Cancel Listing / Item Sold" button.
Reactivating expired or cancelled listings
Listings that have expired, or were manually marked for cancellation can be reactivated on the site. Note that if reactivated, the listing will automatically expire 30 days after the activation date.
Communicating with posters/sellers
Once you've found an item in which you are interested, the next step is to contact the poster / seller to let them know you are interested and make arrangements to purchase the item. All of the communication between buyer and seller can happen through the KARTSALE website. However, we don't get in the way if you want to cut out the middle man, so to speak, and communicate directly with each other.
To contact a seller, use the form that appears just below the detail for a particular listing. Submitting the form will send an email to the poster with your information. Note, the form gives you the option to share your email address with the poster (or not), and send a copy of the message to yourself.
Please use common sense when communicating with people you do not know. Also keep in mind that you are purchasing items from individuals and NOT from KARTSALE. KARTSALE is an online marketplace whose sole purpose is to connect buyers and sellers. All transactions and the details of any transactions are carried out between the buyer and seller, KARTSALE does not get involved in any part of that process. Please see our Safety / Fraud page for guidelines on how to use online classified sites safely.
