  1. Questions about publishing free classified ads

    • How do I insert a new ad ?
      Please click on 'Insert New Ad' on the navigation menu. Fill in all fields in the form, choosing a descriptive title and a very detailed description of what you search / sell / trade, then click on the submit button. The maximum length of text allowed is 500 characters, you will not be able to enter further text.

    • Is it really free?
      To publish and search ads on our website is free. New Premium services will be added, but search and basic insertion of new ads will always be free.

    • How should I write my classified advert?
      Provide a descriptive title, like "Ford Mondeo for sale in Surrey, UK", instead of "Ford Mondeo". Give as many details as possible in the text of the advert, since the more details you give (in the title too), the more chance you have to attract the attention of someone interested in buying / trading / selling what you want.

    • I do not have an email address, can I post an advert?
      Sorry, but no, you can't. A valid email address is required to receive the activation link for your classified ad. This is to prevent spammers from abusing our services.

    • I have deleted the email with the activation link, can I still activate my advert?
      Yes, you can. Please visit Manage your ads, and use the second form on the page to have your details (activation links included) sent to the email address you used when you published your classified ad.

    • Why should I activate my classified advert?
      Because otherwise it will not be published on www.affari.to. The activation step is necessary to confirm the validity of your email address, which in turn confirms that you are a legitimate user of this website and not a spammer or a spambot.

  2. Questions about searching classified ads

    • How do I search Affari's ads?
      There are several ways to find what you are searching for, on this website. The first is by using Affari.to's sections: on the main page of the website you can see the sections in which we store all ads; under each section you can see the newest ads for that section, plus a link to the section itself.
      Another way: use the QuickSearch form, visible on all pages of the site. Just enter a keyword (e.g. house, or book, etc.), click on 'Search', and you will find all ads with that word in the text.
      Another way: use the Find ads link in the navigation menu: you will be able to search for all ads containing a specific word or sentence, in a specific section, for a specific area.
