The cost of promoting your ad depends on the feature, city and category. The prices are set so that the feature remains a premium option for those that decide to purchase them. 

For example, if the price for Top Ads was set too low, there would be too many Top Ads in that section, thereby your featured ad would have less visibility. 

 

To determine feature prices:

 1

Click the “Post Ad” button at the top of the page.  2

Choose the appropriate category you wish to post in. 3

Look at the “Promote My Ad” table near the bottom of the “Post Your Ad” page for pricing.

Adding a video to your ad gets your ad noticed. Get that camera ready!

To add a YouTube video:

It is all about location, location, location when buying, selling, hiring or searching businesses, events or deals on KiCHiKoo?

Being able to find an item that is in a specific area, simplifies the search process.

That’s why we’re now requiring users to include their full postal code when posting an ad on KiCHiKoo.



Here are the benefits:



    - You can search for items or services in a specific area rather than having to sort through ads in an entire city.

    - A map will appear on each ad, giving a visual idea of where the post is located.

    - You are not required to include your specific address, but if you do, a red pin will drop on your specific address on the map instead of a blue circle showing the area associated with the Postal Code.





Please note:

Postal codes do not provide an exact address. Generally, each one could include hundreds of houses so there is no need to be concerned with visitors knowing where you live.

Please do not post multiple ads using multiple postal codes so that your ad will be posted in more than one city.  We reserve the right to remove ads that hinder the user experience.





 



We accept the following payment methods on:


  • PayPal

  • VISA

  • MasterCard 




All payments are securely processed through PayPal, our payment processor. Transactions use a 128-bit encryption to securely process your transaction and protect your confidential information.
