We believe your ad is better placed in Jobs Sales, Retail & Customer Service Jobs Sales Jobs Field Sales Jobs category." ****** BUT THE JOB WAS NOT FOR SALES so why would I put in those categories ?

“gumtree charging”

Written on: 14/09/2014 by bpanda (1 review written)

Thankfully I found this website before I nearly paid to place an ad . I tried to place a free ad on gumtree and there was no charge , so placed the ad and status said processing . Next day got an email saying it's been removed and it was in the wrong category. So logged in and double checked and it wasn't in wrong category so tried again and they wanted to charge me £6.00 when the previous day it Said £0.00 . There is no way I would pay as it seems they make the rules up as they go along… Read Full Review

such a very bad company to use
gumtree are a disgust in the way they treat people, they clearly do not want customers and now, they are far too expensive to even consider especially when replies to adverts have hit an all time low, it appears its not only advertisers who will not use them, those looking for jobs have boycotted them as well. This is what happens to companies who treat people like animals

I couldn't agree more . I been on other forums and there are slot of ads on there that people have said they have been tricked over and over again . When reported to gumtree nothing is done and the ads stay up . They seem to encourage this kind of bbc behaviour and won't do anything to protect people . There is so much been said about it online and I think now that all gumtree is , is a platform for not legal activity . I have since read that employers have gone on there advertising fake jobs then people upload their cv and they then have people's personal details . It's disgusting and without gumtree cooperation there is nothing anyone can do about it

They will not succeed in the money grabbing that's so obviously going on. There are other sites that let you advertise for free and only charge to feature an ad which is fair enough. They also protect your phone number by providing you with an alternate number and route calls to you that way and they protect your email and all for free . Compete with that gumtree !

I've bought 2 things from gumtree a total of £1,800 and got scammed both times, it seems to me it's full of all ebays rejected sellers, to anyone reading this don't make the same mistakes I have STAY WELL CLEAR FROM GUMTREE. Ebay is getting better everyday and all sellers have to give you your money back if there is a problem.

“Huge prices for paid ads---and now are up again.”

Written on: 06/09/2014 by vmLee192 (1 review written)

Can't say that i don't get a good business with the help of this website but still i think that prices are to high .I had a few ads removed but was my fault (although it would have been nice if they would have sent an email saying that the advert was removed or if they would have given me the chance to edit it).I also think that their customer service is BAD very BAD.They don't care now are to big for that. They need some competition so let's start using other similar websites… Read Full Review

gumtree are too expensive and now with very poor responses to adverts, its simply not worth the money. From what I can see, gumtree need to restore faith with its viewers, no point in lots of ads without the viewers. Current stats online for gumtree show that hits to the site are down by 30% which is a result of bad customer service. Bottom line is if you spend money with gumtree you will waste it so don'y bother with gumtree

“Gumtree offers a terrible service!!”

Written on: 04/09/2014 by PedroCaxade (1 review written)

Gumtree has lost it completely. They don't allow you to make changes into your add once it's uploaded but if you post a new add with the changes they will delete for duplication. They keep on changing the posting rules and deleting your adds out of the blue making you lose a lot of business. Customer service is terrible!! Appoling!! They treat you as a problem instead of as a client and they CAN'T solve any single problem. Years ago it used to be good and they stablished themselves in the… Read Full Review

“Sorry you posted your gig in the 'Events Gigs & Nightlife'”

Written on: 28/08/2014

I just posted a forthcoming gig in their 'Events, Gigs & Nightlife' section, just for it to be deleted and told that I have posted it in the wong section. Who moderates posts on Gumtree... Monkies? That is no doubt an insult to every member of the Haplorrhini suborder and simian infraorder. Also found out that every post I have made over the last couple of years was removed without notification so I have now deleted my account, there are far better sites out there… Read Full Review

Sorry to say that gumtree is run by idiots with a complete lack of good customer service. That is why I get tweets everyday with warnings not to use them as they are useless. The biggest warning is never ever spend money with them. Gumtree is living in cloud cuckoo land
