Sellers can post their offers to JamesEdition and will be published after editorial review. It is an elite form of a Classified advertising portal. The strict curation of all listings have resulted in several media coverages. Some listings have been posted to Top Gear[3] and The Guardian[4] websites. It has been referred to by some as Craigslist for the rich[5] or even "Craigslist for billionaires".[6] The advertised goods are so rare that the website has received regular coverage by other websites, print magazines and TV stations.[7]

HistoryEdit

The company was founded 2008. It changed its name from JamesList to JamesEdition in February 2013, after becoming the defendant in a lawsuit by Craigslist in June 2012.[8][9] In 2016 the company changed its shareholders structure, appointed a new CEO[10] and moved the company from Sweden to the Netherlands.[11] In 2017 it was reported that JamesEdition would expand its business model beyond classifieds.[12]
