Frequently Asked Questions

How do I place an ad?

Posting ads to adwento is quick, easy and free. Just click the “Post free ad” button at the top-right corner of the page and then follow the subsequent instructions.

What does it cost to advertise?

The publication is 100% free. This applies both to private and commercial ads. However, there are a few selected categories that require Premium Features to active your ad.

Can I use HTML tags or URLs in my ads?

adwento allows HTML (limited) and clickable URLs in ads; however, if your ad only consists of links it will not be accepted.

If I post an listing, will I also get more spam e-mails?

Absolutely not because your email address is not visible on the website.

Can I post an ad in multiple locations?

adwento is designed for local trading. Please post your ad in your own city or the closest city in the area. Keep in mind that it is not possible to change the location of your posted ad.

Why have I not received a confirmation email?

If you didn’t receive a confirmation email, please check your spam folder. If the email isn’t there, please contact us via our Contact form

What can I do if the Captcha code doesn’t work?

If the Captcha code doesn’t work, please check that all cookies are ensured and JavaScript is on your browser. If JavaScript isn’t installed, you can download it for free at www.java.com.

Why are Premium Features mandatory in some areas?

While posting an ad on adwento is free, due to abusive ad posting by professional spammers and agencies, some areas recently changed to Premium Features only. This means that you need to purchase at least one Premium Feature to activate your ad.

How long will my listing remain on the website?

In general, an listing is automatically deactivated from the website after 1 months. You will receive an email a week before D-Day and another on the day of deactivation. You have the ability to put them online in the following month by logging into your account on the site. After this delay, your listing will be automatically removed permanently from the website.

I sold my item. How do I delete my ad?

Once your product is sold or leased, log in to your account to remove your listing.
