Our Ad Promotions


At the top of every ad listing page, which can get you up to 20+ times or more views!

  • Top Ads stand out - they are bigger than regular ads, highlighted in yellow, and clearly marked as a "Top Ad".

  • Each Top Ad is given an equal chance of being shown in the Top Ad spots. This means thousands of extra appearances for each Top Ad on our most-viewed pages - every day, for up to 15 days.

  • In addition to joining the Top Ad list, your ad is also posted as a regular ad. So you can add a Daily Bump Up promotion to your regular ad too.

 Daily Bump Up

The Daily Bump Up promotion moves your ad to the top of the regular ad listings once a 3 hours for up to 2 months. It has the same effect as reposting your ad every day - but it's automatic and attracts in selected intervals multiple times

  • Ads with Daily Bump Up are given a fresh start once a day, to get your ad more views with no extra effort.

  • Ads move down the pages as usual until the next bump up, and this is repeated for up to 1 months.


Want to sell quickly? The URGENT promotion helps your ad stand out from the rest and communicates your urgency to potential buyers who are looking for a great deal.

  • URGENT ads stand out from the rest by showing a bright red marker on the ad

  • Combine this promotion with a Top Ad or Bump Up to ensure your ad stays on top of regular listings and gets up to 10 times more views.
