Eric Wants to Sell His Stuff. Fast. (Kijiji Canada)

This Eric fellow who wants to sell his stuff, fast ... is this famous Kijiji guy KijijiEric, aka Eric Pierni, the senior marketing manager for Kijiji Canada and responsible for overseeing the company's advertising sales?

I'm told it's not.

"That is a German Eric," says a Kijiji source. "In fact, it's our German affiliates that first created that and we repurposed it for Canada."

We get the point of the ad, but Eric needs to know that he can't really sell *everything* on Kijiji.

Among the ever-growing list of things you're not allowed to sell on Kijiji Canada:

  • Adult or Erotic Products and Services
  • Alcoholic Beverages
  • Baby Walkers
  • Blood, Bodily Fluids and Body Parts
  • Burglary Tools
  • Counterfeit currency, stamps or coins
