usedcanada domains (is that still active?)
If it's a niche item, any respective forum, example, fashion (styleforum.net)

more intriguingly...did you get banned from all those places, hence looking for a new place to troll?

Why has Ebay not been mentioned? By far the biggest.

Nope, I'm good with them all, well except for Facebook Marketplace, I don't do Facebook. I was just curious what else is available, thanks for your list

This is true. I just got my first purchased on eBay from the states. I was reading about people paying extra once the item arrives, taxes and duty. Mine was delivered by Canada Post and it was in my mailbox today, no extra charges. I'm happy.

Best for local sale is RFD BST especially if you're dealing with someone who's been on here for sometime... as opposed to someone (like yourself) who just joined. Longtime RFDers with lots of posts are likely the most trustworthy because we got a "rep" on here. [At the very least, you can hound them on here].
We're all bozos on the bus until we find a way to express ourselves...

Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!

I heard a lot people recommended Facebook

If i buy high value stuff, I stick to RFD BST, otherwise, I usually use kijiji. The options between RFD and kijiji is incomparable

Sadly the Used.ca sites are still alive and well on Vancouver Island.

If you have clothing, makeup, purses, shoes, household stuff, stationary, etc, new and used, try poshmark.ca
They take 20% and you pay a bit of tax (don't know why seller pays tax).

You set your price, people can buy at your price or they can counter offer. You can counter offer, back and forth until both parties come to an agreement.

Once you sell, they will sent to your email a Canada Post shipping label that you attach to your package. Take to post office and you're done. Buyer pays shipping and both parties can track the package.

Wait until buyer receives package and if satisfied, you will get your money that you can transfer to your bank account.

Yeah, I know I'm replying to an old post, but this is so ridiculous. "Oh no, I have to sign up for a Facebook account. I don't want to use Facebook! Face Screaming In Fear " You sign up and you use it only for buying and selling.

Signing up for YouTube doesn't mean that you have to upload videos.
Signing up for Twitter doesn't mean you have to tweet.

If you have no self-control, then okay, but say so in the first place.

Since I don't do facebook I don't know what you mean by having self-control with facebook. I don't do facebook because I don't agree with their terms for signing up

I gave up using kijiji. Last year when my grandfather passed away and we sold almost a house worth of stuff I started putting ads on both Facebook marketplace and kijiji. Easily Facebook was getting 3x more responses. It got to the point where it wasn't even worth my time putting it on kijiji.

Even if you don't "facebook", its worth it to have an account to just buy and sell.

I don't like giving any company my personal details and photo. I rather not and go with sites that don't require it. But to each to their own, right

You don't have to give your real info, and you certainly don't have to put a photo. Nothing's stopping you from using your first name and fake surname (or an entirely fake name) paired with a generic picture of a sunset or whatever.

The last time which was a few months ago when I heard about selling stuff on FM I try to sign up but they wanted a facial photo, no thanks
