Check the "Contacts" block in the ad (Personal account > My ads > Edit > Contacts): perhaps, you have indicated that you do not want to use chat and receive messages on the site. Also, the reason could be that your ad is not in demand or is too low in search results and does not appear in top positions. To improve the ad's position, use paid services.
To increase views and speed up the sale, use paid ad promotion services. Paid services increase the number of views from 3 to 20 times, depending on the service.

This message indicates the rejection of your ad because you have already published the same ad on our site.
If our editors find your ad suspicious during the pre-publication review, we will reject it and ask you to provide additional information.

We do not limit the number of ads you can post. However, based on practice and common sense, we understand that a private individual cannot sell 5 of their cars. If you are a private entrepreneur or a car dealership - let us know about it. Don't pretend to be a private individual when posting car ads that a dealership or private entrepreneur is selling.
The car should be shown in all its glory in the pictures. Take at least 10 photos from different angles. Be sure to photograph the car's interior, trunk, and individual interesting details of the interior. It is not allowed to place your company logos in the photos, except for an advertising plate on the license plate, phone numbers, and any other information that is not related to this specific car.
We allow writing about your additional services (loans, trade-in, financing) only if, in addition to this, the description contains all the details about this specific car. If such data is not there - we will remove the advertisement of your additional services. Also, the use of emojis in the description is strictly prohibited.
There are two possibilities why you don't have a chat conversation. First, when submitting an ad, you specified yourself that you don't want to receive messages and chat with customers. Second, our editors have blocked your ability to use chat. In the second case, you will see a message about the reasons for the blocking.
You can set up weekly receipt of statistics on the display of your advertisements on the site. We offer two options: via email and sms. To set up the most convenient option for you, go to "My Account > Profile".
- Fill in all the fields of the advertisement as fully as possible
- State the real price
- Post a lot of photos from different angles, wash the car and clean the interior beforehand
- Do not put extraneous symbols, numbers, text on the photos. This will lead to the rejection of the ad and the deletion of photos that violate the rules
- Never blur the car numbers in the photos. We will do it for you.
- Write a detailed, not boring description
- Always stay in touch, do not ignore messages and calls
- Communicate politely, provide truthful information
- Do not overprice. If you want to sell faster — reduce the price
- Periodically change the price. The views and adding to "Favorites" will increase
- Spend time on your profile. Upload a real photo, write your real name and region of residence. All this will build trust in you
- Mention in the description that you are ready to negotiate. Even a small discount will attract anyone
- Use amounts with a small number of zeros. Psychological research has shown that human attention focuses on a variety of numbers. For example, don't set the price exactly at 100,000, better 98,200
