Why is Gumtree charging for ads?
At Gumtree, the safety and success of our customers is vitally important to us. After extensive testing and research, we decided to introduce a cap on ads in our Jobs, Autos and Services categories. This means that users posting more than 10 ads in the Services category or more than 2 listings in the Jobs category will be subject to a small fee. Customers are limited to one live car ad at any given moment. This will reduce the amount of spam on the site and ultimately help your vacancies and business stand out, as was proven to be the case in our automotive category (that first introduced the measure in 2015).
However, we know that there are some businesses who will need more listings than the average poster – which is why we’ve launched ProTool: Gumtree for Business. If you’re a professional seller in Goods, Motors or Real Estate, or you’re a Recruitment/HR professional, then this is for you. Not only will you be able to upload multiple listings, you’ll also gain access to a dashboard tailor made for your business – whether you are a goods-based business that requires stock management or a professional property agent that needs in-depth analytics to plan your sales strategies, we’ve got the right solution for you.
And as an added bonus, you’ll save money and gain access to special features designed to draw even more attention to your ad.
