Sellers can reply to question asked and edit them later but cannot delete question posted on one’s Ad.

After having posted the ad a user can easily login to their account and edit the content of their ad, they can also upload new images ( max 5 allowed ), reorder them and delete images.

Q: Do I need to mark my Ad as sold, what happens after I do ?
A: Yes, we strongly encourage sellers to mark their ad as sold once you have sold the product. If you don’t, other users might still contact you about it, which is a nuisance for them and you. Once an Ad has been marked as sold, the listing would have a clear marking of “SOLD“ on it, the ad would continue to be available on the site with that marking for the duration of 90 days after which it would be archived. Ads marked as sold cannot be renewed.

A: Yes, anyone with an account can login and change all their user detail including their email address and phone number. Please beware that the new phone number needs to verified as well. If one fails to verify the new number our system would continue using the old number. Once verified mobile numbers need not be reverified again in future should they be reverted back.

A: The idea of our search feature is to enable users to find what they are looking for, this could be based on multiple factors like keywords used, filters applied, location searched from, Ads liked, previous viewing history and so forth. However we do favor Ads that are clearly written and explained, posted in the right category with a favorable price and with appropriately sized images.
