Do I Need An Account To Post Ads?
An account is not required to post ads, however, if you plan to post frequently we encourage you to create an account with us (a user account makes creating, editing or deleting posts much easier).
Will My Ad Go Live Immediately?
Your ad will go live as soon as you activate it via the activation link that will be sent to your email address. If you are posting as a logged in user, your ad will go live immediately.

How Do I Post A Free Ad?

How Do I Post An Effective Ad?
It's as simple as 1, 2, 3... 1. Make sure your ad has a catchy title. 2. Make sure it has a description (100+ characters) in its body and not just links and/or banner ads alone. 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.

What Currency Will I Be Charged In?
All charges are made in US dollars (USD $).
PayPal E-Check Payments
If you posted a paid ad using an e-Check, your paid promotion (whether all cities or featured) 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 advertisement will not take effect until a new ad with a new / valid form of payment is posted.
