Gumtree, the South African classifieds website lets you sell your unwanted stuff for free.
If you’re using the Gumtree app to get some cash from the things you no longer want, then it’s even easier than ever. One of the best things about the Gumtree app is that it’s free and your Gumtree ad is free as well. Here’s how to easily create your free Gumtree ad using the Gumtree app on your iOS or Android device:
Open the Gumtree app on your device and head on over to My Ads.
From here navigate to Add a Photo and upload high quality and clearly visible images of the goods you wish to sell.
TIP: Avoid uploading blurry photos and make sure there is good lighting. A good ad has at least three high quality images.
Add a title to your picture, ensuring that you draw buyers in with a precise, yet captivating description.
TIP: Keep the title between 50 and 70 characters.
Next, add a description and place your ad into the relevant categories to be easily searched by potential buyers.
Provide all the required details for your Gumtree ad like the pricing and whether the owner or a third-party is selling the item.
TIP: The Gumtree Price Checker is the perfect tool to make sure you are pricing your item correctly.
Now all that’s left to do is to add in the location and your contact details.
Click Submit and your Gumtree ad is live. Remember that you can always use Messages to ask a consultant for help.
