It's as simple as 1, 2, 3... 1. Make sure your ad has a catchy title. 2. Make sure it has a description (we recommend 100+ characters) in its body and not just hyperlinks or URLs. Keep in mind that ads with relevant keywords in their descriptions are more likely to come up in search results. 3. It's highly recommended that you upload at least one image with your ad. The image will be used as a thumbnail preview in the listings. Ads with thumbnail previews tend to get more visits.
If you're posting a banner ad it's advisable that your image is 728 x 90 or as close to 728 x 90 as possible. Keep in mind that the quality of your image will determine how many click-throughs your banner ad will get, so make sure your image is not fuzzy or distorted. As a rule, high quality banner ads receive more clicks.
All charges are made in US dollars (USD $).
If you posted a paid ad using an e-Check, your paid advertising will take effect as soon as your e-Check is cleared. Usually, it takes up to 4 days for e-Checks to get cleared. This is an automated process, no further actions are required on your part.
If you authorize a payment using your credit card, debit card or PayPal account, but your charge is rejected, your paid advertising will not take effect until a new ad with a new / valid form of payment is posted.
