Walmart launches free classifieds online

The world's largest retailer is testing free online classifieds.

Walmart Classifieds quietly launched in Beta late yesterday.

While some have speculated that Walmart may be targeting Craigslist, it seems more likely that the mega-retailer simply wants to make it easier for you to sell your old stuff ... so you can buy new stuff.

Currently, the Walmart product is using an API from Oodle.

Neither Walmart nor Oodle have 'officially' announced a joint venture.

Walmart Classifieds is live now on the web and can be found here.
