About Posting and Managing Ads
What are “Feature Ads”?
By listing a “Feature Ad”, you ensure the most exposure for your ad. All Feature Ads are displayed randomly in the slider on the front page, and appear highlighted in search results or category pages throughout the site. Not only that, but Feature Ads will also be posted to our Facebook Page and Twitter Profile.
How do I make my ad a “Featured Ad?”
During the ad posting process, you will be presented with the option to make your ad a “Featured Ad” for a small fee. You will be taken to PayPal to check out, and upon payment, be sent back to Belly Dance Classifieds.
How long are ads displayed for?
All ads are displayed on Belly Dance Classifieds for 90 days.
How can I cancel my ad?
If you have sold your item or wish to cancel your ad, you can pause your ad under your “My Account” page to remove it from public display. It will be removed from your My Account page after a period of time.
Why does my ad not show up in the main listing?
In an effort to prevent spam and to keep the ads relevant to the belly dance community, all ads are reviewed by a real live person before they go live. While most ads will be approved fairly quickly, please allow up to 24 hours for your ad to be posted to the site. If your ad was offensive, spam, viral marketing or did not pass our quality tests it will be deleted and will never make it to the main listing.
What type of content is prohibited?
Offensive material, and personal ads are neither acceptable or permitted. We reserve the right to delete questionable listings without notice and at any time. In the case of ongoing abuse, we reserve the right to permanently delete your account and you will be banned from Belly Dance Classifieds. Click here to read more about our Seller Guidelines.
