All ads are fully exposed throughout the site. In other words; as you browse through the site the listings are from everywhere.
It is totally in the control of the visitor of where they would like to find their results by choosing the filters of "where," "what," "price," etc.
and it is totally the choice of the user, where they choose to post their Ads.
YES. There are a couple of options to advertise your site banner or promotions. Please contact us directly & we can discuss what works best for you.
