Kijiji Shares iPhone and iPad Sales Data on its 10th Anniversary

Online classifieds site Kijiji recently celebrated their 10th anniversary after launching in February 2005. The site now reaches over 100 cities with 6.1 million ads at any given time.

The site has shared some iPhone and iPad sales data exclusively with iPhoneinCanada.ca. The one item with the most replies to ads? That’s Apple’s iPhone, as annual upgrades mean old models end up for sale. Below is a snippet from the company’s 10th anniversary infographic:

    Half are stolen, and the other half defected!

    Bought my 5s on kijiji and it works without a problem. You should always ask to have the IMEI provided first and check if it’s blacklisted. And of course have a good look at it before concluding the transaction.

    The iPhone app for Kijiji is nice and useful, but why is not possible to bring an app for the iPad also ? In 10 years they are not capable of developing it ? Or, maybe they don’t want. Why?

    Defected to North Korea?

    Unless you have a paper proof of purchase, the seller will have all the power, I read some feedback that weeks after buying a phone off kijiji the seller reported the phone lost or stolen, and the carrier blacklisted it.
    It maybe 1% of the kijiji population, but that will be little consolation for the scammed.
