How to respond to an ad and how to reply to a buyer

Welcome to Classifiedads.com!   Here is a step by step guide on how to respond to an ad and how to reply to a buyer.

Respond to an ad

When you find an ad that you are interested in and would like to contact the seller, simply fill out the “Respond to this ad” section and click “Send Message”. This will send a message directly to the seller’s email. You can also contact the seller via telephone if a phone number was provided.

 Reply to a buyer

If an interested party responds to your ad, you will receive the message in your email account. You can then reply directly to the person who sent you the inquiry. You will also receive a copy of the message on the “Your Stuff” page of your ClassifiedAds.com account under the “Your Messages” section.  To reply to the message from here you will need an email program such as Microsoft Outlook installed and configured on your computer.  

 Finish

We hope this tutorial was helpful and you were able to either respond to an ad or reply to a buyer. If you experience any problems or have any questions feel free to send us Feedback on our “Contact us” page.

How to locate your ad

Welcome to Classifiedads.com!   Here is a step by step guide on how to locate your ad after it has been posted.

Logged in to your account

After you post an ad you should be logged in to your account. You can locate the ad by going to the “Your Stuff” page and clicking the ad title. This will take you directly to your ad. You can also locate your ad by clicking the “View & Share” link included in the confirmation email we send you after the ad has been posted.

Logged out of your account

If you are logged out of your account you can locate your ad by setting your location to the same location as your ad and going to the category the ad was posted in. For example, if I posted an ad for a bicycle in Tacoma, WA, I would set my location as Tacoma, WA and go to the “Bicycles” category under Items for Sale. If your ad was posted recently it should be on the first page of that category. You can also locate your ad by searching for the ad ID number using our search bar. 

Manual review

Please be aware that most ads go through a manual review process before being published to our listings. This may cause a short delay before you are able to search for your ad. All ads are processed within 24 hours, and you can always find your ad by searching for the ad ID number or by clicking on the link on the “Your Stuff” page when logged into your account.

 Finish

We hope this tutorial was helpful and you were able to successfully locate your ad. If you experience any problems or have any questions feel free to send us Feedback on our “Contact us” page.

How to create a password

Welcome to Classifiedads.com!   Our site is 100% free to post ads, browse ads, and respond to ads. Once you post your first free ad an account will be created for you.  To log back in to your account after your first visit, you will need to create a password.  Here are a few different ways to accomplish that!

Post a free ad

Once you post your first free ad an account will automatically be created for you. One way to create a password is to go to the “Your Stuff” page right after posting your first ad and click the “Edit Settings” button in the “Your Settings” section. On the page that follows you will be able to enter in a password.  You can also create a password by clicking any of the links located in the confirmation email we send you after your ad has been posted.

Another way to create a password for your account is by clicking the “Don’t know password” link on the Log In page. You will be prompted to enter your email address and then click “Continue” to have an email sent to you with a link to create your password.

New  - Log In with Facebook

We recently launched a new feature on our site that allows you to either create an account without posting an ad, or access an existing ClassifiedAds.com account by logging in through Facebook. To log in this way, simply go to our Log in page and click the blue “Log in with Facebook” button. You will be required to enter your Facebook log in credentials. If you do not already have an account with us, this will create a new account for you. If you have an existing account that uses the same email address as your Facebook log in, you will be signed into that account. If you have an existing account that was created using a different email address than the one used to log in to Facebook, a separate account will be created in our system.

If you do not post an ad and you create an account instead by logging in through Facebook, you will not receive the confirmation email that contains links to create a password. You will need to either create the password on the “Your Stuff” page (mentioned above) or click the “Don’t know password” link on our log in page to have an email sent to you.

Finish

We hope this tutorial was helpful and you were able to successfully create a password for your account. If you experienced any problems or have any questions feel free to send us Feedback on our “Contact us” page.
