Is my information safe?

Your information is absolutely safe. If you’ve posted an ad the only way people can contact you is through our website. They fill out the contact form and send you a message which is routed through our server to your email account. Your personal email or any other private information is never displayed.

How does the view count on the ads work?

Each ad has a tiny little brain inside of it with the sole purpose of counting how many people view it. Whether your ad’s name is Fred or Suzie, it will reliably total the number of people that look at your ad. This count will help you out in pricing your item. If your ad has been looked at 2000 times then Fred is telling you that your lime green sofa really isn’t worth that 500 bucks.

Why was my ad deleted?

There are few reasons an ad could get deleted. The ad might have violated our posting policies, AKA porn or phishing scams … not good. We will also delete ads that are not identified under the correct section … also not good. We really don’t want to delete any ads at all because that seems like a lot work … so help us out here.
