If you have not received your confirmation email yet, we recommend checking your junk/spam mail folder. If you do not receive the email or have deleted it, we recommend that you click “Forgot Password” on login page and enter your email address. Once you have created a password for your account, you can log in any time to post, edit or delete your ads.

I am having trouble uploading my pictures, am I doing something wrong?
If your images are very large, they may take extra time to upload, especially if your internet connection is a bit slower than others. We recommend that you try making your images smaller by using photo editing software on your computer. You can also try adjusting the settings on your camera so that pictures are saved at a more reasonable size, like 1024×768.

Searching Ads

I keep getting search results that are not close to what I am searching for. Am I doing something wrong?
The way our search works, is you can set your location and then search for a specific type of job, car, item, etc. Our system will then supply results that match your specifications exactly, and then it will show similar or nearby results. When we do not have a lot of ads that match your criteria, you will start to see ads that may be farther away than what you are looking for.

I received a confirmation email that my ad was received, but I can’t find it in the listings. Where is it?
When an ad is received, it will always go through a manual review process. This will cause a delay of up to 24-36 hours before you can find your ad in our listings. After the review process, your ad will be posted to our live listings.
