4.  Enter the description of your ad

Fill out the form shown. Not every field is required. The required fields are indicated with an asterisk (*).

Two things to note: if you want to change the ad category then you can always do so by clicking the link “Change ” beside the category description as shown below.

You will  need to enter a title. Make your title descriptive and inviting – but short. This will help grab attention and make your ad easier to read.

You must enter a price. Prices are entered without the $ or any othe rcharacter such as commas or full stops.

Write a description of your item. Be sure to include details that will help a buyer make a decision. Anticipate what they might ask and put it in the description but still try to make it to the point as much as possible.
