(How to) Post a Classified

From January 1, 2021, all classified postings – Wanted to Buy and For Sale – are moderated.


All transactions are between the buyer and the seller and TheChocolateLife assumes no liability of any kind for incomplete transactions, for any reason; nor is success guaranteed.

The new moderation policy was instituted in 1/1/21 in part to:

  • Ensure listings contain all of the necessary information and are formatted clearly;
  • Enhance SEO visibility;
  • Increase the likelihood of quick success;
  • Reduce SPAM; and to
  • Help ensure the privacy of the seller and the buyer (if desired).

Fee Structure

  • Wanted to Buy Classifieds are always free.
  • Cocoa for Sale Classifieds are always freeif the cocoa is being offered by a source in, and is fulfilled from, an origin country.
