How can I save my searches on the iPhone app

Search Alerts are a notification service where you can have the newest ads on Gumtree sent to your email address. You will also receive notifications from the app when there are new results for your searches. These searches can be created for an entire category or for a given search term and will be sent to you immediately, daily, or weekly — depending on your preference. You will receive notifications for 60 days from the day you activate the Search Alert.

How do I create a Search Alert?

  • Search Gumtree for the type of ads you're interested in.
  • Please note that if you're not doing a keyword search, you must pick a category and location. If you run a keyword search, then you must pick either a category or a location in order to save. The more specific your search, the more relevant your results will be.
  • Once you’ve created a search, tap the bell icon at the top of the screen.
  • Name your search if you like, select how often you'd like to receive notifications, and if you would like to receive emails make sure Receive email alert is switched to ON. 
  • Tap Save at the top of the page.
