Frequently Asked Questions

There is no setup charge. All you pay is the $89.00 per month for as many months as you want the ad to run.

How long will it take to get my ad running?

If there is space available, your ad will be running within a week. Ads received by close of business Thursday will be posted by early the following Monday morning. If there are no available spaces for your ad, you will be notified about when your ad will be posted.

What is the period that an ad will run?

Ads received by close of business on Thursday will usually be posted by early the following Monday. Expiring ads are removed at the same time.

In which position will my ad be placed?

Ads are placed from the top position to the bottom position in the order received. Ads that run for more than one month will move up in position as the ads above expire. An ad that is booked for a long period will work its way to the top and stay at the top for the rest of the run. Therefore it pays to buy a longer term.
