On the Home page to your left column there is an orange button at the top that looks exactly like this , put your mouse pointer on it and CLICK.
This will take you to the start of the advertising process.
On that first page please choose the City or Town and if you are NOT posting within Malawi please choose the continent you want your advert to be categorised in .
Just after choosing your location, you will be taken to the next page where you must choose the Category and Subcategory in which you want your advert to fall in. Making the right choice will increase the chances of your advert be easily found by your targeted group.
Immediately after choosing the Subcategory, you will be taken to the last page which is the form where you will need to fill in all the details you want to appear on your advert. Its advisable to write as much information as possible to stand out when it comes to compare your item and somebody else's who is selling the same item.
Make sure that all the columns with a red star ( * ) are filled as they are mandatory (a must), and from there you can upload your pictures and tick your options and don't forget to tick that you agree to our terms and condition as this is a must for you to be able to advertise on the website.
And finally after cross checking and are happy with the contents please press
PLEASE NOTE: After pressing "Post Now" an email will be automatically sent to the email address you have provided and you will need to go to that email's Inbox to activate your advert for it to be shown on the website. (Thats after Administration approval, this helps in the prevention of SPAM.)
Hope this has clearly explained the whole process. But if in doubt, please email us using the addresses provided on the Contact Us page.

Follow these simple steps for a safe and successful buying experience:
Keep things local by meeting face to face to see the item and exchange money. Make sure you are completely happy with the item before handing over any money. Although we do not recommend paying for an item you haven't seen, if you are planning to do this, please use a secure payment method.
For your personal safety, meet in a well lit public place and always take someone with you, or at least tell a friend where you are going.
Never carry large sums of money with you. If you are looking to buy something expensive, we recommend that you meet with the seller to view the item first. If you are happy to then proceed with the purchase, either go to the bank with the seller to make the payment or arrange to meet somewhere safe with the money.
Be aware of our warning signs of top scams, and if in doubt about a seller either contact us for advice or don't proceed.
Use your common sense. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
