The reason why Kijiji made it better in Canada is that people here are not aware of the whole philosophy and business model of Craig s list, and they don't know that ebay is behind Kijiji either. Basically, the market was virgin, and Kijiji started advertising like crazy, whereas Craigs list, like always, relied on word of mouth. Obviously, people wen't for the modern looking colorful interface of Kijiji, but I still use Craigs list here, and gets tons of OK reaction.
Finally, I think eBayClassifieds is a very bad domain name.
