Advertiser Guidelines

Advertisers are solely responsible for all information that is submitted to Gumtree and any consequences that my result from your post. Gumtree reserves the right at our discretion to refuse or delete content that we believe is inappropriate or that breaches our Terms of Use. We also reserve the right at our discretion to restrict usage of the site either temporarily or permanently, or refuse a user registration.

Some handy tips to remember:

  • Gumtree connects buyers and sellers and encourages face-to-face local trading. This means that the majority of users who reply to your ad will be in your local area.
  • To create a better experience for all users, you can only post one ad per item, service event, etc.
    • Please choose the location and category that is most relevant to your ad and post one d there. Do not post the same d repeatedly across categories or locations.
    • Posting duplicate ads and/or posting the same ad using a different email address isn’t allowed on Gumtree. This isn’t fair to other users and is annoying when reviewing search results.
  • For the most part businesses can sell on Gumtree just like private sellers, however in some cases, businesses or people considered to be advertising for commercial purposes, may be subject to specific limits and/or policies. For more information, please click here.
