|Q.||What if I want my post to run for more than thirty days?|
|A.||All standard free classified ads automatically run for
thirty days. After thirty days, the post and artwork (if
any) are automatically deleted from the database. You can run the same ad
again for another thirty day period. Simply repost the ad and your new ad
will appear at the top of the search results as before.
|Q.||What is cross-posting and why is it not allowed?|
|A.||Cross-posting as it applies here occurs when a person posts the << same >>
ad in different cities and/or in different categories. Cross posting gives visitors the impression that the
information presented is the same from city-to-city or from category-to-category which frustrates visitors to
the point where they leave the site.
|Q.||How do I use the Elaan's List e-mail address on my post?|
|A.||All posts have an 'Elaan's List' e-mail address. This is located directly under the title of the post
and looks like this: <some_number>@elaanslist.com.
'Some number' is the same as the 'ad id number' of the post. To avoid spam or for privacy reasons, the advertiser can activate and use this e-mail address to receive messages rather than expose his personal e-mail address to potential misuse online. Messages received at this e-mail address are forwarded to any e-mail address that you choose. This option becomes available after you place an ad. The e-mail address remains active for six months or until you discontinue your ad. Your ad must be active during this period. The cost for this option is SG$6.00 / US$5.00.
|Q.||How do I activate the Elaan's List e-mail address on my post?|
|A.||To activate your e-mail address:
1) Click this link to make your payment.
2) After you have made your payment, you will be prompted to enter your ad id number, your password for the specific ad, and the e-mail address to which you want to forward your incoming messages. Click the 'Activate' Button when you are finished.
3) To use your Elaan's List e-mail address in your post, click the 'Update' link on the white menu bar and make the changes directly to your post.
