My advert has been declined. Why?

No worries, let's figure it out together! Our moderators could decline your ad for several reasons:

1. You tried to post a few items within one ad. It’s not allowed on Jiji. You must post each item separately: 1 ad = 1 product.
2. You’ve posted pictures of nudity or images that contain contact details, watermarks, etc. We don't allow posting these kinds of photos. Please, remove them and add real photos of the item that you intend to sell.
3. You have set the irrelevant price for your item. Make sure to carry out some investigation of market value and input an appropriate price for your advert.

Follow these simple rules and our moderators will activate your ad in a short time.

Should I pay before or after?

We are the place that connects buyers and sellers and helps them to meet. You will make deals with different people, so it’s better to discuss such things with each seller directly.

1. Meet with sellers face to face in a public place
Check out the item's quality and make sure that it lives up your expectations before you make payment.

2. Never give out your financial information that could be misused
Be attentive and avoid scams and frauds, such as fake payment services, fee requests or requests to use money transfer services.

3. Be careful and check the company's background twice
- Don't submit any upfront fees for a job application;
- Don't go to the remote or unfamiliar places for an interview;
- Don't disclose any personal information like a bank account number or photocopy of your ID.
4. Use common sense

Please, avoid anything that appears too good to be true, such unrealistically low prices or promises of quick money.

How can I be sure that I'll get what I requested?

We try to check our sellers carefully, but it’s almost impossible to vouch for each of them. Expectations matter, and to avoid disappointments, we strongly recommend you meet with sellers face to face in a public place. Review the product first, and pay for it only if you are satisfied.
