Editing your active listing is easy & quick with our free classified system.

Once you have made the appropriate edits, make sure you submit the changes by clicking "Save Changes" to the existing ad before navigating off the screen.

Once you have completed the posting of your Free Ad on A Classified Marketplace, locating your ad is a simple process.
Here are three quick ways you can find your ad:
If you took note of which category you chose to post your ad in, you can easily find your listing again by navigating to that category off of our homepage.
If you have no idea where you posted your ad, simply navigate to your account, by clicking the "My Account" button on the top menu bar of our website. Once in your account, you can manage your active listings, or view them in their active state by clicking on the Ad title.
Alternatively, you can also find any posting by using our user-friendly search function to find ads based off of keyword, location or category.
If you are still having trouble finding your ad, please contact us with any questions.
You can have all your personal information remain private. Update your personal privacy preferences from the My Account page.
When your ad appears, instead of showing your contact information the following appears: "This seller has chosen to remain private. You may contact this seller via anonymous email by clicking here." The prospective buyer completes an on-line form and the system sends you an email without revealing your information to the prospective buyer.
Additionally, we do provide listing subscriptions for our members who wish to create listings that run for over a year without renewal. Please see our Pricing page for information about listing plans.
If you have any questions about the use of A Classified Marketplace please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
Once you create a listing, it is active for 90 days without any further action.
Once the 90 day period has expired, you can choose to renew your listing at absolutely no additional cost for another 90 day period.
Best of all, there is no limitation on the number of times that you can renew a listing.
Within your account at A Classified Marketplace, you can easily renew your classified at any time during the active classified listing period by clicking "Extend" next to the listing of your choice. Doing this will enable a new 90 day active period for your listing.
If your listing has expired and is past the initial 90 day period, simply look near the bottom of your account with A Classified Marketplace for your "Inactive Listings" and click "Run" next to the listing of your choice. Once you click "Run", your chosen listing will automatically renew for a fresh 90 day period.
We also have subscription plans available for ads that last a year in duration without renewal. See our pricing page for more!
