We love your feedback in regards to this site.


Few mistakes when posting into DewaList Classifieds

We found a lot of mistakes when users posting their ads into DewaList Classifieds sites. When we found this, we generally delete or move the ads to the right place.

Here are some mistakes:

  1. Users post their ads into Post Event instead of Post Ads. The Post event are specifically for the ads that has a time frame (start and end date) for instance a music concert, seminar, festival, exhibition, etc etc.
  2. Users post their adult ads ie. massage, escort into Business Service or Entertainment. There is a specific category for this content which is called Erotic.
  3. Users post their ads into the category that is not specific to that country belong. For instance, the ads is specifically from South Africa and the poster put into the DewaList India under Business Service. The right way is to put under  Worldwide / Non-local city / Unspecified as a City and Worldwide / non-local / overseas  as a category.
  4. Users posts a lot of similar ads within a day.  Pick the right category and the right city for your ads.
  5. Users posts ads with a link without testing it. HTML tag is appearing. When you post a link, you can use hyperlink on then editor or leave it the full link with http://[name of url] and this will create automatically the link properly.
  6. Users post their adult ads with nudity, xxx or sex image.
  7. Users post their ads that is not belong to right category. For instance, the ads is relating on job but then putting under Vehicle.

Help us to make this site better.  The more your ads can be seen by others … the more your successful campaign will be.

Removing moderation on Event post

As we are continuing monitoring of the site regularly, we decided to remove the moderation of the event post. The process of event post will be similar to a normal ad post and if we found the post is NOT an event type of post we will suspend the event immediately.

New Featured Ad Pricing Model

For almost 9 years, we always had $1 for the featured ad as well as extended ads to 30 days.

Due to we’ve extended the ads from 3 months to 1 year, we believed the extended ads to 30 days is no longer valid. We’ve also looked other sites are doing in term of pricing

Therefore we decided to change our pricing and here is the new pricing model:

7 days – $0.99
15 days – $1.99
30 days – $3.99
60 days – $7.99
90 days – $9.99
180 days – $19.99
365 days – $39.99
