General Help Information
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 a free account with us (a user account makes creating, editing or deleting posts much easier).
Note: Ads posted prior to creating an account or ads posted while an existing account is logged out will NOT be included in the account. Posting ads as a logged in user will ensure that all your ads are included in your account.
Are All Ads Free?
All ad postings are free, unless stated otherwise.
How Do I Post A Free Ad?
To post a free ad, first select your state / city (or town). Next, click on the post free ad link and select a category and a subcategory. Fill out all required fields and click on the Place Ad Now button. If you are posting as a guest, you will be asked to verify your post by logging into the email account of the email address you provided with your post. Log into your email account and click on the verification link in the email that was sent to you.
How Do I Post A Featured Ad?
To post a featured ad, first select your state / city (or town). Next, click on the post free ad link and select a category and a subcategory. Fill out all required fields and select the make it featured option. Click on the Place Ad Now button. Next, click on the Make a Payment button and follow the necessary steps to complete your transaction. And lastly, if you are posting as a guest, log into your email account to verify your post.
How Do I Post In All Cities?
To post in all cities, click on the post in all cities link. Select a category and a subcategory. Fill out all required fields. Next, select ONE of the two options at the bottom of the page (regular / featured ads). Click on the Place Ad Now button. Next, click on the Make a Payment button and follow the necessary steps to complete your transaction. And lastly, if you are posting as a guest, log into your email account to verify your post.
Note: The default city for all cities posts is all cities, 50 states (or if you're promoting your ad through your qwikad account, the default city will be the ad's original city). Editing the default all cities ad through your qwikad account or through the activation email will automatically edit your ads in all cities. Deleting the default all cities ad will delete your ads in all cities.
E-Checks & Declined 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.
How Many Ads Can I Post In Your Classifieds?
Generally speaking, there's no set limit how many ads can be posted per person in our classifieds. We do ask you, however, that you post your ads in categories that are appropriate to your ads' content.
Will My Post Go Live Immediately?
Your ad will go live as soon as you verify your email address via the link that was sent to you. If you are posting as a logged in user, your ad will go live immediately.
How Long Will My Ad Stay On Your Website?
All ads currently run for 30 days.

How Do I Edit / Renew / Delete An Ad?

1. The ad's title
2. The wrong / misspelled email address that was entered

Can I Trust This Great Deal?
We recommend you to deal locally only. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Try to meet with buyers/sellers personally to avoid scams and fraud.
