Just come to put my car up for sale and no matter what I do it says it's 15.00 to post this ad? Sure I put my dads car up for sale on there recently for free! Guess it was only a matter of time :/

Been like that for ages now. Only get 1 free car ad per year, which you would have used up on your dads car.

Not free anymore but most of the time I prefer gumtree over eBay selling cars. Seems to be less messers. 99% of the time people phone from gumtree they turn up, have a test drive and buy it rather than eBay where you get most mivering for a week then nothing or 100 messages saying il give you a rusty fiesta, a bag of quavers and some loose skittles for a 2k car

Just add the cost of the advert to the sale of the car?

Having a number like 3015 doesn't look as appealing as 2995

2 free adverts and then 15. Worst thing is that your 15 only gives you the local audience, much bigger exposure on ebay for 10.

Oh, and ebay also own gumtree so its a win win for the shitcunts allround

New email address and you get another two free car ads a year.

Seem to get more success from Ebay than Gumtree. Always tends to be people calling up from London area ( 500 odd miles away) despite putting my location, postcode and even having a little map on the advert
