Classified newspaper advertisements are so the last century. Today, bargain hunters looking to sell locally turn to Richobo, a place full of sellers offering everything from used cars, to dining sets to vintage sewing machines.
Local classifieds to sell, buy and rent merchandise in Rīga.
Richobo's got it straight. You could throw up text ads with photos, then take them down whenever you wanted. You don't even need to put your cell phone number up.
Buy, sell or rent your items and supplies online. Goods and supplies that a customer may use on a temporary basis. Easily buy, sell or rent new and second-hand items at Richobo Marketplace, locally or through businesses.
Like the Internet, new markets continue to open up, and I've been happy with a lot of those alternatives. You should always be careful when you trade money and goods with foreigners; you should be doubly careful when you meet these people face to face.
The market is focused on buying, renting and selling within a region, and the page automatically lists items from your geographical location up to 100 kilometres away.
The downside of Richobo Marketplace is that there is no guarantee of product quality. With only the reporting function and the user rating system, buyers in the Richobo market must trust the advertisers comments.

Richobo may feel a little like a digital version of an attic sale. Many prices are tradable, but you don't have to save your negotiation until the last minute. If you have a prize in mind, you can try adjusting it before you meet to pick up the item so you don't waste your time or the time of the seller if you don't get an acceptable number.
However, if an item is different from the one described or has undeclared damages, please feel free to continue negotiations in person if you still wish. If this does not work for you, you are not obliged to buy it, so be ready to leave if necessary.
Please be advised that this is a free, classified service offered to the Richobo community. We are not responsible for dealings between the seller and the buyer, so take care to avoid scams. Try to deal in person locally, do not provide sensitive personal information, meet in a mutual public venue.
