How do I post an auction or classified ad and is it really free?

Again, any item posted in text form ( what you see in a newspaper classified section ) is free.

Here is a summary on how to post an ad :

* Click Post A Traditional Auction or scroll down to your desired choice located towards the top middle portion  of the Home Page

* Enter your Username and Password then click the Submit button

* It will then ask you if you will be using images in your auction. If you are listing a free auction you will choose No, I am not using images. If you are using images from a web url than you will have to have some knowledge on uploading from a website. We have added a button that allows you to upload pictures from your computer and we will store them on our servers for .50 a picture. This is your easiest choice and most economical way to list with an image and instructions are listed below.

* After choosing the uploading image choice you will then follow the step by step guide to listing an item.

Here are some terms you may need clarification on:

Featured Listing is an option that will put your item on the Front page of our website. This will rotate with the other items every time the page is refreshed or entered. It is a $ 5.00 option and requires a image upload to work.

Category Featured is an option that will put your item on the first page that comes up after someone choose an auction category from the Front Page of our website. This will rotate with the other items every time the page is refreshed or entered. It is a $ 2.00 option and requires a image upload to work.

Payment types accepted offers a variety of choices but the two most used are PayPal and Check MO ( money order )

Time until auction opens and Time until auction closes are individual choices made by the listing user. The most common way to list is choose 5 under the min Until Auction Opens and 29 under the days Until Auction Closes. ( you can not choose 30 under days Until Auction Closes )
