Carbonite Classifieds was started in April 2009 as a spin-off of the Prophecy Forums as a safe place that members could buy and sell old second hand computer components. It is a community of South Africans that enjoy a safe place to trade in electronics, computer hardware, and pretty much anything that comes to mind – even cars.

The primary thing that sets Carbonite apart from alternative trading platforms is the reputation system, which allows members to build a healthy profile by successfully completing deals. This system allows one to trade with more peace of mind than on anonymous platforms.

Along with trading, discussions on any topic can be found and possibly a few life long friends along the way.

Carbonite continues to enjoy successful growth and is currently one of the largest trading platforms in South Africa. In 2017, Carbonite started to expand into new areas such as news coverage, YouTube reviews, and more.
