Gumtree Multi-location Feature

What is the Gumtree multi-location feature?

The multi-location feature allows, for a small fee, a single ad for services to automatically reach a wider geographical area. This is a quick and easy tool to expand the potential market for yopur services.

Currently, the multi-location feature can only be applied to ads for services posted in cities in Gauteng, Western Cape and KwaZulu Natal.

An example

You select your location as South Africa > Western Cape > Cape Town   and your ad will be displayed in all the areas listed under Cape Town:

  • Bo- Kaap
  • Century City
  • City Centre
  • Devils Peak
  • De Waterkant
  • Foreshore
  • Gardens
  • Higgovale
  • Oranjezicht
  • Other
  • Salt River
  • Tamboerskloof
  • University Estate
  • Vredehoek
  • Woodstock

How can I apply the feature?

You apply the multi-location feature when you post your ad for a service for the first time. Once you have selected your area, the price of the feature will be displayed next to the feature (that price will vary according to the area you choose). The feature remains active for 30 days. You can change your location on your ad but you will be required to re-purchase the feature for the new location.

You will not be able to apply the feature after you have posted your ad or when editing your ad at a later stage.

The multi-location feature is non-refundable even if an incorrect location is selected.

Can I still apply other features in conjunction with the multi-location feature?

Yes, however, there will be an additional fee for each of the other features (except for the Homepage and Category Gallery) due to the additional visibility.
