What are the main rules?
Here are the general rules to follow:
– Before placing an advert for the sale of a product or service, the user must create a seller’s account with their contact details, which will help to create good communication between the seller and the buyer.
– The seller can post only one item in one ad.
– The announcement should not be repeated (i.e. no need to duplicate the ad at one time). You can renew the ad for free after the expiration of the presentation period (14 days).
Posting more than one item in an advert or duplication of the ads will be considered as spam and is NOT ALLOWED.
– Each item must be placed in the appropriate category.
– All adverts posted on Photomarket.online must be accompanied by a valid phone number.
– All ads must be accompanied by the prices indicated in US dollars.
– It is allowed to place ads only related to the photo business.
– The official language of the website is English. Please post your ads in English only. We recommend using a Google translate service if you have difficulties in the translation.
– It is forbidden to use repeated upper case letters (CAPSLOCK), or include phone numbers in the images or in the heading.
– No contact details should be included in the description. Please use them in your seller’s details description.
– Each user can have only one account when advertising. If we find that a duplicate has been created, both accounts will be blocked and deleted.
Advertisements that violate these rules will be removed.
Please note that the user will be issued the first and only warning for breaking the rules. Repeated violation of these rules will lead to the blocking of the user account and any subsequent reincarnation.
We hope that following these simple guidelines will ensure a better website experience for the Photomarket.online community.
Types of Ads
The marketplace offers you 2 different types of ads that you can select during ad posting or reposting. It is not possible to switch between different ad types while it is alive.
Available types are:
The Free Ad will be visible for 2 weeks (14 days), and you will have to update it manually if you need it.
Compared to the Premium Ad, the Free Ad contains fewer images to add (only one).
The administrator can reject your ad if it does not comply with the rules of the Photomarket.online trading platform.
Also, your ad may be deleted without explanation.
How to add your ad to the list
To place an ad first, you need to register an account. After you have an account, just click on the blue button at the top menu bar and follow the procedure.
1. Choose the pricing/ad type. (Free Ad, Featured Premium, or Multipack Premium)
Please note that the Featured Premium ad has 5 images to upload but the Multipack of Premium Ads has 10, so it is reasonable to choose a Multipack option if you want to sell your equipment quickly and pay less for the advertising.
2. Enter the title of your advert.
3. Select a category and a sub-category for your ad.
4. Add a description by filling in all the required fields and describe your product as detailed as possible. Make sure to include as much information as possible – brand, model, weight, and dimensions.
Do not forget about the shipping options.
5. Add images to present the product at its best.
Click ‘Add Photos’, once you have located the photo you wish to upload, select it and click open. Upload multiple photos at once by holding down the CTRL-key.
Please do not upload photos with more than 2 Mb in size.
6. Add an asking price (if applicable). Please only enter numbers – no symbols, spaces or letters.
7. Select your location.
8. Pay for the publishing by PayPal or any debit or credit card (Paypal handles it also).
Once the form is completed and paid, you will receive a confirmation email.
Your ad will appear on the board very shortly. If you receive an email saying that your ad is pending, it means that your ad needs to be checked by an admin before going live.
A list of all the ads you posted will appear on your profile under the My Ads link.
