Placing an ad

You must be registered and logged in in order to place an ad. We require this for several reasons, however the most important reason is as a deterrent to fraud and SPAM. Once you are registered and logged in, just click on the "Place An Ad Link". then just follow the screen to go through the automated checkout steps.
The steps are:

  1. Step 1: Choose a category to place your ad into.
    If the category has subcategories under it, then you MUST select a subcategory to place your ad into.
  2. Step 2: Choose an Ad Listing Package
    Ad listing Packages vary depending on your chosen category. In addition, they also have different options available to you such as whether you can add a picture, a link to your site, etc.. Here you can see list of the Ad listing Packges
  3. Step 3: Enter your listing details.
    this is where you enter your actual ad content. NOTE: The "Short Description" is the text that is seen with your ad when people are viewing ads in a list such as when browsing categories or a list of search results. This field is limited to 250 characters because of this. The "Description Field" is the text that is shown in your actual ad when a user click on your particular ad and views it. This field has 500 characters allowed in it. In addition, some categories will have custom extra fields that only show up for that category.

    Below your details, you will have optional paid "Upgrades" available for your ad listing. these upgrades allow you to enhance your ad to help it stand out from the others.
      The following paid Upgrades are available:
    • Featured: This adds a background color to your ad in all ad lists. In addition, We also place some Featured Ads on our Home pages and other pages. Only Featured Ads will show in these places.
    • Bold: This will make your ad text bold in all ad lists.
    • Higlighted: This adds a background color to your ad (different than the featured ads) in all ad lists.
    There is also a field in this step to enter a coupon or discount code if you have one. We offer these codes occasionally for promotions or as rewards for our customers. If you have a valid code, any dollar amount or discount amount will be applied to your total.
  4. Step 4: Add Images
    If you have selected an Ad Listing Package that doesn't allow pictures in it, it will be skipped.

    If you have selected an Ad Listing Package that does allow pictures in it, please keep these things in mind.
    • The file size of your image can not be over 1.5MB
    • We only allow GIF,JPG,JPEG,BMP,PNG type of images.
    • All images are resized and converted to a JPEG, ".jpg" automagically by our server. We create two different images for each image upload, a thumbnail image (max width and height 100px) and a full size image (max width and height of 400px).
    • The button below the image upload will change between saying "Skip this step" and "Continue" based on a few things. If you aren't ready to upload your images, click "Skip this step". Don't worry, you can always go back and upload them at anytime your ad is still active. Also, if you have not reached the maximum number of pictures that your Ad Listing Package allows, this button will still say, "Skip this step", however you can still click it to continue. Don't worry, your uploaded images will still be there and show for your ad. Once you have uploaded the maximum amount of images allowed for your Ad Listing Package, this button will change to say, "Continue" which you should click.
  5. Step 5: Verify the information
    Your personal information will be shown here. Please verify that this is correct. If it is not, then make any changes that are necessary. Just below your personal information is the billing information. It will automatically be checked as "Billing address the same as customer information". The Billing address must match the information for your credit card billing information. This information can be checked by the merchant service that you chose to make your payment. If this information does not match, the merchant service could deny the payment.

    You will need to select your Payment Method in this step as well. Currently, we only accept payment through PayPal. PayPal is trusted, secure and the most widely accepted payment service on the internet. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO PAY BY CREDIT CARD WITH PAYPAL! To pay by credit card, click on the "continue" link on the left hand side of the screen just above the credit card logos at the PayPal web site. If you have a PayPal account and wish to use any of your alternative methods of payment, then go ahead and login and use whatever method that you chose.
  6. Step 6: Listing Preview and Verify your order
    Here you will see a mini preview of what you listing will look like on our site. In addtion, below the listing preview will show your order and your the total for your order. You MUST click on the "Continue" button below your order information to make your payment and have your ad published once the payment is confirmed.

    If for some reason you can not make your payment at this time, your listing will still be there, however it will be inactive and not show on our site. If you log in and go to "My Account" and then "Browse My Listings", you will see your listing there with the option to "Make a Payment" to complete your order and have it published.

    Once you click continue, you will be taken to PayPal's secure site to make your payment. Again, if you are using a credit card, you can click the continue link on the left hand side above the credit card logos to make a credit card payment without having a PayPal account or without logging into your PayPal account if you have one. Once you have completed your payment, you will then be brought back to our web site.
