Crazy CraigsList Fees

When did Craigslist sell out? Used to be everything was free. I just went to run an ad to give some high school kid a job helping me disassemble the bus. By the time I was at the category to list it under i was already at $35.

From CL :

"All craigslist postings are free, except for:
  • Job postings in selected areas—$7-75 (fee varies by area)
  • Brokered apartment rentals in NYC area—$10
  • Various by-dealer categories in the US—$3-5
  • Cars/trucks by-dealer in the US, Vancouver BC—$5
  • Furniture by-dealer in the US, Vancouver BC—$3
  • Gigs in US and selected CA areas—$3-5
  • Services in US and CA—$5

Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted.
Paid posting accounts provide additional payment options in many cases.

Questions? Please email billing@craigslist.org."

How'd you get to $35 for a seat removing gig?
That seems way too high.

I understand the need to charge a buck or two (and it should help cut down on the fishing and spam), but $35 is crazy.

Post it in Facebook marketplace and some local buy sell trade groups. Barely anyone checks Craigslist for stuff like that anymore. At least where I’m from.

Go to Craigslist Atlanta and search for RV Storage. I think if they charged $5 per listing there would be nothing on that page, all 100 junk removal ads would be gone.
