Posting a free ad on bartrit.com is easy, click on 'Post your free ad' on the top right of any page, fill out the details of your ads and hit 'Publish'.

Make sure you add photos to your ads to make them more attractive and get more hits. Also double check your contact information because that is now people viewing your ad will get in touch with you.

 

How to post a premium ad?

Free ads are made premium, so you will have to post a free ad first. Then email advertise@bartrit.com and we will send you a rate card and will make your ad premium, upon confirmation of payment.

What are the rules for posting ads? Did my ad get banned or marked as spam?

There are a few rules to posting ads on bartrit.com, to maintain the quality and standard of the website. Please make sure you provide the correct information and don't use offensive language or advertise anything that can be considered inappropriate. All ads are screened and ads that don't comply with the spirit of bartrit.com will be removed from the site.

 

How can I re-post my ad?

We assume that all ads get old or inactive after 40 days of being posted. You will be contacted just before 40 days and will be given an option to repost your ad. This helps to keep the ads relevant and new, you can re-post your ad using the email sent to you. If, for some reason, you miss the email you can re-post the ad like a new ad with updated information where applicable.

 

How can I edit my ad?

When you post an ad, you will get an email about it from bartrit.com (sometimes it goes to spam so make sure you check your 'spam' folder). You can edit the ad using the link in the email.

 

Do I need to register to post ads?

The simple answer is, no. You don't need to register to post ads. But registering on the site has its perks. You don't need to fill out your contact information each time if you register, we will auto-fill it for you. You will also be the first to hear about our awesome competition and will get a head start on them.

 

How do I register?

In the top right corner, there is a link called 'Register'. Just click on that, enter a few details and hit the 'Register' button to register. If you don't want to register you can even log in using your facebook account. Just click on 'Login' (next to the Register link) and then click 'Login with Facebook'.

 

I have forgotten my password. How can I reset it?

We understand that you have to remember a lot of passwords and sometimes there are many other important things to remember. If you forget your password, just email us on hello@bartrit.com and we will reset it for you. As simple as that!

 

How do I advertise on the sidebar, top banner or footer of bartrit.com?

Even though we try to keep them to a minimum, bartrit.com has expenses. To cover these expenses while making sure that most of the site is free, we have a few paid ads. We display those on the top banner, right hand side bar and the bottom banner. If you want to contact us to book an ad space, please email us at advertise@bartrit.com and we will reply soon.

 

How can bartrit help charities?

From the beginning, bartrit.com likes to work with and promote charities that do great work and add value to the society. We are busy working on a special page for charities. Send us an email about your work with logos and information about how people can help (donations, volunteer work) on hello@bartrit.com and we will make sure you get promoted on bartrit.com. If you are doing great work and just need support, we are the right place for you. All charities will be advertised for free. This is just our way of saying 'thank you' for the great work you  are doing.
