Using a Craigslist Account

CL Auto Poster has the ability to post each ad after logging into your posting account(s) on craigslist, kijiji.ca, backpage.com. This means the ad will actually post to your account which can be useful for many purposes. If you wanted your ads to post to a posting account, then you simply input your posting account(s) into the ACCOUNTS section of the software. There is a tab called "Accounts" and on that tab you can input one or as many posting accounts(email handles) into each row. You can set one master password box at the bottom of the list if password needs to be the SAME for ALL accounts in the list.

- Make sure there is a checkbox by each posting account in the list that you want to post with at the current time - To edit an account on the list, simply double-click on the email address and the row will turn into an editable text box
- You should input posting email in the first column and its password in the second column. Please go here to see how to import multiple accounts at once.
- You should fill also pop3 server/email/email_password settings for each posting account for auto email verification. You can leave email password blank if it is the same as for posting account. You can leave pop3 server blank for gmail accounts or if it is like pop.youremaildomain.com. Email settings under settings tab are used for email verification if settings under Accounts tab are incorrect or absent. Click 'Verify Accounts Emails' to verify your settings and check report under reports tab. More details about pop settings are here
- If CL Bot can't login to your account because it was never created then it will try to create it automatically with the email settings you filled. You can use this feature for creating new posting accounts.
- It is one of cl rules that email must be verified with the same IP as the ad was posted. That is why it is important that email verification must be done automatically. This way the software won’t change IP before email verification. So email forwarding must be setup properly in your email accounts or input your pop3 emails settings for each email account under Accounts tab for automatic email verification.
- You should input your phone numbers in phone column under Accounts tab for auto-filling phone numbers during phone verification (phone number for each account must be different) or use !text{contact_phone|19173331122} keyword in your ad (replace 19173331122 with your own phone number).
- You can renew/repost/delete or import all ads in the selected posting accounts with action buttons or with a special campaign name. Please go here
- You can use !login{username1|passw1} keyword (input it anywhere in your ad’s body) to specify what account to use for selected ad. It has more priority than Accounts tab. CL Auto Poster looks for email settings to verify email under Accounts tab even if you use !login{} keyword. So you should input your posting account and its email settings under Accounts tab anyway. Please go here
- Select row by clicking on grey field (the whole row must be selected) and press delete button on the keyboard to delete a row.
- Input !city{New York}, !campaign{default} keyword(s) in the Options (or phone) column to use account only for specified city/campaign (i.e. New York city and default campaign in this example). Input also !kj{Yes} in the options column for kijiji accounts.
- CL has a posting limit of 3 postings per account.

*NOTE* When posting directly through a posting account, the status of your ad in the Ad Manager will say "waiting for email". This is because when you are posting through a posting account, there is no email sent to publish your ads because craigslist skips that step if you are logged into an account.
