  8. Enter the price using numbers only. The RS punctuation will be added automatically when you post your ad.
  9. If you have a website that you'd like to include, click the box under Website Link and then enter the URL. We ask for a small charge to apply the URL to your ad. For more information, read our URL Feature article.

Note: Ads may take some time to go live to the site. If your ad isn't visible right away, please be patient. We'll send you an email to let you know when your ad goes live to the site. You can also check the status of your ad in the Manage My Ads section.

Not letting you post?

If you receive a 'please fill out all required fields' error or see a section highlighted in red, it means that there is information missing or not formatted correctly. Click into the red section. If it was empty, enter the information. If you already had information in that field, try removing any symbols or specialized punctuation. If it's a number-specific field (price, kilometres, etc.), make sure you use numbers only.

How to add photos

Photos are the first part of an ad that most buyers see. Adding clear, detailed pictures draws buyers into your ad and saves you time answering questions that could be answered with a photo. EasyAdz allows up to 6 images on each ad. Don't be afraid to use them all.

Tips when taking photos:

  1. Use bright lighting and uncluttered backgrounds.
  2. Take photos of your item from different angles so buyers can get a 360 degree look.
  3. The larger the item you're selling, the more photos you should take.

To add photos:

  1. If you're posting a new ad, tap Post an Ad. If you're editing an existing ad, tap Edit Image of the Edit button on the ad you'd like to update.
  2. Scroll down to the Images section.
  3. Click Add Image to choose photos from your file browser or click and drag images directly over top of the Add Image button.
  4. When the delete Image of the delete button appears in the corner of the image, it has finished uploading.

To delete photos:

  1. From the post or edit ad screen, scroll down to the Images section.
  2. Click the delete Image of the delete button in the corner of each photo to remove it.
  3. If you're editing, save your changes by clicking Update My Ad at the bottom of the screen.

Create Titles that Attract

EasyAdz searches use the keywords included in the title of your ad. To make sure that your ad appears for as many buyers as possible, use detailed, specific keywords. EasyAdz allows up to 100 characters - don't be afraid to use them all.

Add Detailed Photos

Ads with photos get more serious replies than those without. Adding well lit, good quality images to your ad will go a long way in catching a buyer's interest. There is no cost to post a picture on EasyAdz, so take advantage and include multiple images in your ads.

Choose the Category Carefully

It's important to post your ad to the correct city and category. If your ad is mis-categorised, interested buyers may have a difficult time finding it. Double check which category ads like yours are usually in and try posting in that category. After checking your category, double check the location your ad is posted in. If nearest can't see it, it will negatively affect your number of responses.

Compare Your Price

One of the most common mistakes that new sellers make is listing their items at too high a price. If your item is used, buyers expect a bit of a deal. Look for similar ads on the site to see how other sellers are listing their items. Comparing your price to others should help you gauge the range you want to be in.

Promote Your Ads

Sometimes, an ad might need a little boost to get the exposure it deserves. Free classifieds are a great start, but if you want more exposure, consider upgrading your free advertisement with a paid feature (applicable in future).
