Here at Kijiji, we’ve been brainstorming the best way to make buying and selling within your community even easier than before, and we are excited to introduce our new innovation: a fleet of remote-controlled solar powered cars, devoted to delivering Kijiji items to buyers.
With these brand new remote-controlled cars, no delivery is impossible. Their winter-ready tires and sturdy frames make them ideal for our rough Canadian terrain. Rain or shine, snow or sleet, nothing can stop our new remote-controlled cars! Each vehicle contains a chip that allows you to control them and track their progress through our GPS app (available soon in the app store). If you’re nervous about having to control the cars, don’t fret: we’re currently working on pre-programmed delivery vehicles.
How will the system work? Easy as 1,2,3:
1. Request a Kijiji remote-controlled car on our website. You can subscribe to the service with a monthly flat fee for all your sales and purchases, or, you can purchase the service à la carte when you need it.
2. Once you have an item to deliver, enter it in the Kijiji system and follow the instructions to load the car. We recommend using PayPal on delivery for payment, as our cars are equipped to handle this exchange.
3. Log on to our website or GPS app to control your car and follow its progress. Both buyer and seller will receive push notifications when the car is a half hour away from the destination, and upon arrival.
Don’t expect the transition to be instant: you can keep making your regular Kijiji transactions for the time being. We will launch test initiatives in major Canadian urban centers in the next few months. Stay tuned to find out when the Kijiji fleet is coming to your area!
