Locanto is a free classifieds site that helps you with all your local needs. It was started in Germany and has expanded across the globe since then. Locanto offers free local trading and the website is available in 5 languages and is being operated by a small team of classifieds enthusiasts.
What Locanto stands for is that classifieds should be free to the public, local trade is sometimes the best way to go and that classifieds should be easy to use. The site is simple to use but very basic.
Downsides : Besides their basic design they don’t offer any sort of special services or personal assistance to customers to enhance Ad conversion. It seems they have spent a lot of advertising funds to push their presence to the top displaying an image that doesn’t relate to the core of the business. These sites have been backed by a large organization that cares about profits more than customer satisfaction.
