buysellanything looks like a clone of gumtree except very few adverts and no adverts = not a busy site = no point in using the site

they must be joking, so expensive to advertise now with a lack of job ads, the site has hit rock bottom now, no wonder what with their bad customer service, taking money and not placing adverts, deleting adverts, a site that takes forever to load, they have packaged all things people hate into one site and expect them to become customers, such a joke, much better sites around now, they have lost the plot

**WARNING, this site takes money with no service. Placed an advert, paid the amount. Advert live for 1 hr and deleted by gumtree. They will not reply to emails, had to go to my bank to advise them of this theft and got the money refunded (from the bank). Buyer beware this is not a site to use

“Useless”

Written on: 11/10/2014

After I registered, an elderly friend asked if I could help her sell her settee. I tried to place the ad and it wouldn't accept it. For some half hour I went all over their website trying to figure out the problem, tried to email them, it wouldn't accept it! Tried to chat, it wouldn't accept it! re-wrote the ad 3 times, still wouldn't go through. NO phone number available, therefore I was left with the only possible alternative: go somewhere else!… Read Full Review

gumtree is not transparent. Wanted to place a job ad in the part time section, no price was mentioned until it came to submit the advert ? then they wanted £17.94. Far too expensive for a site that is going down the pan anyway. What a waste of time for me, I just clicked off gumtree and went to a site, I wonder how many people do that ? Why don't they publish their prices before placing an advert which gives people the opportunity to decide if they want to continue. Very poor back street operation

“Has gone down hill ever since it was taken over by EBay”

Written on: 02/10/2014 by jamadaia (3 reviews written)

Once upon a time it had lots of buyers and sellers and of course there were some bad sellers scamming people, but it is also the buyers sense to check what they get before buying. This is NO different than it was buying a used car or used items from news paper ads when internet was not a big thing. However after Ebay bought out gumtree they have been trying to turn it into a money making site, and things have steadily gone down hill. From ads being auto removed and asked to be placed into… Read Full Review

Gumtree is no longer worth it. It's not just advertisers that are avoiding them because they are too expensive, those looking for jobs are avoiding gumtree as well. i got an email from them saying that my advert had been on the site for 14 days and to bump it up for £17.95 ???? What planet do they live on especially when they tell me the advert had ZERO replies, nobody spends money on a dead site. They are not transparent either, they do not list prices for each section, you have to wait until the last page of placing an advert before they display a price. Such a timewasting exercise as I just clicked off the page and went somewhere else. Gumtree no longer have any credibility and are not trustworthy

Gumtree is the only site that I don't get replies from, hardly surprising when you read all the bad reviews is it. My best responses are from friday free ads who now have more adverts than gumtree and its all free.
At one time gumtree were the best classifieds site but through their methods of conducting business, they are re now the worst site. They still claim to be the UK's number one site ? in their dreams folks, don't waste your time with them

“No Buyer Protection”

Written on: 27/09/2014

I would avoid using Gumtree for the simple fact that unlike buyers have no protection. I have been ripped off with faulty goods and missing items and Gumtree are unwilling to help, their reply was kind of saying "tough". Please avoid and use ebay....at least they will respond and help in some way rather than just fobbing you off… Read Full Review

Gumtree must be avoided at all times, they are a bad site with disgusting management. They have been on "rip off britain" and "money box". The police get over 200 complaints about gumtree each month. The simple answer is NEVER buy anything from the gumtree site

gumtree now a white elephant
IT SEEMS TO ME that gumtree is now a DODO site. I used them for employing people and at one time time got many replies but over the last 6 months, the site is now dead.
Got an email from them saying my advert had been on the site for 14 days and it showed only 3 people had replied ? ? ?
Its no longer a viable site to use and has become a white elephant

“Expensive, slow, better sites out there”

Written on: 23/09/2014 by Aidenv123 (1 review written)

Prohibitively expensive to advertise (particularly on a site that is already supported with 3rd party ads). Flashy, but poorly designed website making it slow and not particularly user-friendly. Owned by Ebay so tries to out muscle smaller, and frankly better, classified ad sites. Basically, it isn't that useful at what it wants to be and isn't worth what it charges you to advertise - maybe only if you're a commercial entity or have a large, expensive item to shift. Used to be good, now… Read Full Review

AGREE far too expensive and no longer worth using. I am an employer and if I am lucky enough to get an advert on gumtree, there is now a total lack of replies compared with other sites, even craigslist gives me more replies. Gumtree were on TV's "rip off britain" today regarding s.c.a.m car adverts, and they said the police gets more than 200 complaints a month regarding gumtree. It's no wonder that gumtree is now classed as a gutter site, the new upgrade is very slow and just adds to the demise of gumtree. I actually do not know anyone who has a good word for them or will use them, they are complete fools

Gumtree so are so thick, they have no idea and the owners including e bay seem to be very unprofessional. For mobile phone users, it will cost more money to use gumtree as the site is painfully slow to load, what a great way to put users off forever. Internet stats show that gumtree is now at an all time low and that stops all users from using them. A company run by imbeciles

“gumtree charging”

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 .

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 !

new updated site but still the same idiots
new updated site but still the same idiots running gumtree.
Whats the point in gumtree re-launching their site when it is still run by the same old idiots and that includes the staff. Must be the most hated site on the net, taking peoples money and deleting adverts, they are what we know as a "percy filth site", stay well clear of gumtree folks

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

***what a C.O.N.***
I placed a job ad in the general jobs section, I got an email from gumtree saying they had deleted the ad >>>> THE REASON >>> "Your ad has been posted in the wrong category. 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 ? You know why they said this ? because in those categories they charge for, its a great way to get rid of customers who never come back. Such a plain stupid attitude

“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

They deleted my advert for new staff, they said >> "Specifically your ad was removed because “Job Wanted” ads are no longer allowed."

I am employing staff not wanting a job ??

No wonder the site is just a joke now when we have nutters like this working for 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
