History of Kijiji

Kijiji was launched in February 2005 as a start-up as an eBay subsidiary in Canada. It started in Quebec City and Montreal until it finally became available across the country in November 2005. While the company is completing the availability all throughout Canada, the company was able to acquire in May 2005 another online classified service from the UK named Gumtree.

The following year, the company completed the acquisition of from Germany, where it merged with Kajiji in other German-speaking countries Austria and Switzerland. The company continued to acquire other online classified websites from different countries. However, some Kijiji websites are rebranded under the name of eBay.

The introduction of ‘Kijiji Autos’ was in July 2018. Another international online classified website operator – Adevinta – expressed their intent to buy the eBay Classifieds Group. It is still considered as the top online classifieds listing website in Canada, compared to their competitor Craigslist. A report from Media Metrix in August 2018 revealed that the website had more than 16 million unique visitors per month and growing.
