Craigslist Application Update – Automatically Pay Craigslist Fees With Your Credit Card

The Auction123 Craigslist App now provides an option to enter and save your Credit Card information within the application on your PC. This new feature eliminates the need to purchase listings in bulk from Craigslist. Your card will be automatically charged $5 as each posting goes live on site.

To enabled auto payment using your credit card:

  • Locate the ‘123’ logo of your Craigslist application in your system tray.
    • If you don’t see the ‘123’ logo, you may need to click on the arrow to show all of your running applications or search your programs/files for Auction123 Launcher from the Start Menu to open the application.
  • Right-click the ‘123’ logo and select Credit Card.


  • Enter your Credit Card information and the main contact for any Craigslist payment related questions. Once completed, click Save.

Your credit card has now been stored on your PC and will be used to automatically pay your Craigslist posting fees as each ad goes live. If you have installed the application to more than one PC for your account, you will need to add the Credit Card information to each PC that has an installed application.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

New Features Coming Soon to Our Craigslist Posting Tools!

As many of you have probably heard, Craigslist will begin charging $5 per posting in the Cars & Trucks by Dealer category beginning December 3rd. In light of this news, we here at Auction123 have been developing some exciting new features to accommodate these changes. Our goal is to simplify your Craigslist posting process and to assist in the management of your Craigslist posting budget.

Craigslist has been updating their message to the dealer community since the announcement on the FAQ page below. Be sure to check back often.

If you are planning on posting more than the occasional handful of vehicles, we advise that you sign up for a paid posting account through Craigslist. To apply, complete the form here: Once you’ve submitted the form, call Craigslist billing at 415-399-5200 x8283 to purchase postings in bulk.

For now, it appears you can purchase bulk postings via check with a minimum purchase of $2000 (400 postings) or by Credit Card with a minimum purchase of $500 (100 postings).  If you are paying by check, payment must be received in advance of posting. If you have pre-purchased a minimum of $2000 worth of postings, you can request to receive invoices going forward. Blocks of car/truck by-dealer postings are currently available for the cities/posting regions listed here:

We will keep you in the loop as new posting features become available. Stay tuned!
