“Never use again ”

Written on: 18/07/2016 by Seamuso353 (1 review written)

Happened to me too. After paying for a featured ad, my account was blocked, no refund, no reason, nothing. Customer support is worst I ever seen. Finaly I have decided to move forward, I have found a really interesting site 1stbuy.co.uk, which seems better then any other out there. No spams, no thousands of duplicates ads, very clean, worth a try… Read Full Review

“Gumtree - Avoid it like the plague.”

Written on: 17/07/2016 by Goodserviceisdead (1 review written)

Problem pretty much the same as everyone else. We did manage, after nearly an hour on the phone, to finally get thru to a real person who was actually quite helpful, but could not answer why account had been blocked. When we did as she said, change password etc it still did not work. She said the ad would be posted again and bar taken off, no such luck. The first time we called we got hung up on or the connection was cut, but we got an email saying thanks for calling and here are the details… Read Full Review

Tried Gumtree instead of eBay and can honestly say what a sad world we now live in,foreigners wanting to barter you down to practically giving your goods away,people who can't spell or add 2 and 2 together and sad individuals who just message asking silly immature questions because their brain hasn't matured enough to work out the simplest things in life.

“What a horrible experience!”

Written on: 27/03/2016 by Simoneu83 (1 review written)

What a horrible experience! I have used Gumtree years ago and was very happy from the service! My mother posted a ‘free ad’ yesterday and a day after her account was blocked and the add removed. When she contacted Gumtree she was informed that ‘their decision was final’! There were no reasons of why the add was removed nor why the account has been blocked. The ‘live chat’ advisor was not helpful at all. She advised that the account has been blocked but said that she does not have… Read Full Review

“Serious Review”

Written on: 22/09/2015 by moorlander (1 review written)

It is so sad that GT have let themselves hit rock bottom with their out of date methods. We became concerned when there were very few replies to our advert. We then advertised throughout every area of gumtree in the uk. The results were not a surprise to us though, considering the uk covers millions of people looking for work, we only received 6 replies from the whole of the uk which proves that GT IS NOW A NON STARTER. if you want plenty of replies from serious people, use another site … Read Full Review

Clearly gumtree is not suitable for business users and that explains why multi national companies never advertise with them, gumtree are serious losers

“Gumtree Removing Ads Without Explanation & Refusing...”

Written on: 29/07/2015 by LM00 (1 review written)

My recent experience of trying to list a for sale advert on Gumtree has compelled me to write a review. Following my recent attempts to, one, change my email address and having to resort to deleting my account which I'd been using on and off for 3 years without issue, and then opening a new account to enable me to use the new email address. Second, without notification or explanation gumtree removed my 2 adverts. 3, ignoring my request and failing to issue a refund. 4) Now just sending me a… Read Full Review

Nobody should ever trust this rabble who are tied up with E-Bay and Paypal.
Paying gumtree means that you are covered by the distance selling act, buying an advertising space is no different to a product.
If you paid by credit card, contact the provider and tell them you did not get the service you paid, they will raise a chargeback and gumtree have 14 days to respond, no proof or response means the money you paid is put back on your card as a refund. The authorities are well versed about this company as are the police with all the dodgy adverts,

nasty S.P.A.M.M.E.R.S. constantly delete adverts and then they think they have the right to send rubbish emails adlib. Gumtree emails go to my junk mail box automatically which means that 10's of 1000's have reported them to email providers. I guess that most of the junk emails gumtree send out end up in the junk email box where they belong anyway. Seriously folks gumtree as a whole is junk, it no longer works and any company who sends out junk email nust be very desperate You won't sell anything on gumtree

How can one sell when they delete adverts adlib ?
Gumtree is a very sick company who are a bit thick in the head, management and staff alike

“Accepted advert, 48 viewers, then ad pulled & I'm banned”

Written on: 03/07/2015

I placed an advert which was word-for-word identical to ads placed on other sites. Gumtree accepted the ad, issued a ref no., and all seemed good. Checked following morning, all still good with 48 viewers, then a couple of hours later ad had vanished. Gumtree had pulled it without any notification whatsoever. When I queried using their live chat, advisor was perplexed - couldn't see any reason. He promised to look into it, then found I had also been banned, and Gumtree forthwith terminated all… Read Full Review

GT is not fit to operate in the UK, when I read all the reviews here and on other sites, they are so hated yet they do not understand. They are a bit like VW as they have screwed up with the general public, do not use them

Gumtree seem to think that companies should only advertise in one location, if you advertise in other areas, they treat it as a duplicate advert and delete everything.
Clearly gumtree is not suitable for business users and that explains why multi national companies never advertise with them, gumtree are serious losers

I think like most people, gumtree has become such a sad company that no longer works. They have a serious attitude problem with customers. Would never spend any money with them

Placed a job advert, within minutes got an email saying it was deleted because they thought it was in the wrong section ?? RUBBISH, what about my money, no refunds they say ? My credit card company have refunded my money also saying they are very concerned about the high number of complaints about gumtree. I have issued a complaint to Visa and Mastercard, I want an investigation into Gumtree. NEVER EVER give your credit card information to Gumtree

“Total rip off...”

Written on: 28/06/2015 by Spartafc (1 review written)

I have just paid Gumtree Belfast £4.99 to place an Ad which they did not put up.When i asked for a refund they stated that i wasn't entitled to one as i mustn't have read the T&Cs.They basically take your money,fail to provide the service you are paying for and then tell you that it's your own fault.Do not pay these people any money.Very dubious!… Read Full Review
