you could say the same about eBay and/or Paypal.
Much like you could compare a squid to a gorilla. Yes, they're both animals but they are actually quite different.
The way eBay works, there is always a 3rd-party record of the agreed-upon transaction. It's an auction, not a classified ad.
Craigslist is, as you might infer from the name, just a list of offers. The actual agreement and settlement of the transactions happens offline.
That's a much riskier environment to introduce credit issuance into.
