All residents of New Zealand, Australia, England, Scotland and Wales (so far) are welcome to place on-line adverts, each with up to 6 photos (12 for property adverts), for almost anything – cars, bikes, boats, computers, audio, video, books, antiques, collectibles, music, phones, cameras, houses, flats, apartments, jobs, services, tuition, community, notices, meetings, to sell, buy, hire or swap, new or used, offered or wanted. There are over 10,000 distinct category pages, but we can readily add more or refine the existing ones. To suggest a new category or sub-category, just Contact Us.

Anyone - registered or not - can inquire about any advert immediately but it’s very simple, one-off matter to register and place as many of your own adverts as you need to. Private individuals or businesses are equally welcome to advertise and, in Ads4All, we've made it easy for you to come back and edit, refine and update any of your adverts, including their photos at any time after you first place them. Just remember to delete your adverts once they’ve served their purpose.

Placement, Success and Other Fees

There are no registration, placement or success fees or any other "big brother" aspects. You, as advertisers and responders, are free to contact each other, inspect the items, jobs or services and discuss everything in a free and open way.

However, one thing we ask everyone to do is spread the good word!

How it Works

Ads4All does not support, nor much believe in, auctions - just old fashioned bargaining between buyers and sellers (employers and employees, landlords and tenants, etc). We encourage both parties to make phone, email and personal contact with each other in their own ways. As with other sites, we support the uploading and viewing of a number of photos (currently at least 6) of each item offered. However, as with traditional trading, we advise potential buyers to view the items in person before making offers for them, wherever practical. Thus, Ads4All is basically the Internet equivalent of the traditional newspaper classified ads but, aside from the zero cost to both advertise and responder, it has all the advantages of convenience, flexibility, immediacy and easy searching that the Internet has over print.

Adverts, Please!

Please Register, if you haven't already, and start placing all those adverts you've always wanted to but didn't want to wade through those much more complicated sites and still end up paying them for the "privilege"!

Feedback, Please

If you're unclear about anything, please browse the FAQ first.

If its not there or, if you have a good idea or suggestion, please give us as much Feedback as you have time for. That includes any bugs, of course, but also any and all other aspects of style, ease of use, clarity, what new categories we should have, etc.

Spread the Word

If you do like Ads4All, please tell your friends about it. Word of mouth is still a big factor.

Your Responsibilities

With all the above, come responsibilities. Play fair, trade fair, be fair. A good deal should leave both parties smiling. We still believe that Kiwis, Aussies and Brits have a strong sense of what's right and what's not and we reserve our right to ban anyone who, in our opinion, is not playing fair or otherwise abusing the service we are providing.

Software Used and Acknowledgements
