It’s time to post your first ad! The steps below will help guide the process. Be sure to pay attention to information about posting your contact details.
Before you start, be sure you’ve created an account and have logged in.
- From any page on the site, click on the “Submit Ad” button on the top menu bar and you will be directed to the ad posting screen.
- Input the title of the item. Please be specific so users will be able to find your item easily.
- Select the ad type.
- Input the price. Be sure to use the following format: Ex. $50.00 would be inputted as 50.00. If your item is for sale, choose Sell and input a price. If you are open to negotiating the price, select the “Is negotiable?” box. If you’re looking for an item, choose Wanted. Input the maximum fee you’re willing to pay. If you’ve chosen Donated Item, the price option will not be available.
- Upload images of your item. Images greatly help the sale/donation of an item. Be sure to follow these image guidelines: Prepare images before uploading. Upload images larger than 355px x 250px. Max number of images is 8. Max image size is 2MB. If you have a video, you can link to Youtube or Vimeo content.
- Write a description of your item. Be sure to include as many details as possible including measurements, colour, brand/make/model, year, condition etc. The more details you add here, the more likely your item will spark the interest of the right buyer.
- Choose your ad category from the drop-down list provided. If your item doesn’t fit within the listed categories , choose Miscellaneous/Other.
- Input your location and contact details. Please note: DO NOT CHECK the “Use address set in profile” or “Use contact set in profile section” boxes. This is to prevent you from displaying your exact address if you’ve given those details within your profile. Instead, simply type the city you are in under “Precise Location”. The map will geocode your location. NEVER input your complete address as this will be public to all users.
- Input the phone number you wish to be contacted at. This is a mandatory field.
- Agree to advertising terms and conditions by selecting the checkbox. Click on the “SAVE AD” button.
