Google Trader Mobile Post & Find SMS Classified Ads on Phone

Google Trader is a classified site offered by Google in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, and Uganda. Google Trader, like other classified Ads sites, enables users to buy or sell products and services online. However, the uniqueness of Google Traders is that users can find and post classified Ads using SMS on their mobile phone. Currently Google Trader SMS service is available on MTN and Airtel in Nigeria.

This post is part of a free classified Ads series.

How to post Ads with SMS

To post a classified Ad on Google trader via SMS, you must start it with the keyword Sell. The keyword is followed by your sales pitch.

In seconds, you will receive SMS containing Ad listings for the product or service you searched for.

As for price, Google states that the service is free, but that your carrier may charge you for the SMS you send. However, I used Google Trader on an Airtel phone to search for classified Ads and no credit was deducted from my account. I did two searches and in both cases it was free.

So, it appears the service is free or maybe just on Airtel, maybe it is free for at least two searches. Google Trader is currently available on MTN and Airtel. Have you used Google Trader SMS service on any network? Share your experience as a comment.
