General reasons for ad removal or ads being placed on hold

•Against policy

• Duplicate of another ad posted by you

• Posted under wrong category (You must choose the single most relevant category for your ad)

• We only accept ads in English (Foreign translation may be included below if appropriate) and Afrikaans

• No website links (url) to any sites or product/service may be inserted. We do however have an exchange link policy – please contact us for more details.

• Not descriptive enough (Ads that do not provide enough detail will be removed as this makes for a bad browsing experience)

• Appears to be a copy of another ad posted on AdLand (You may not copy other user ads, you ad must be original)

• Inappropriate language

• Inappropriate photo/ image or duplicate image/photo from others. Photos/images must be from the pet/product/service itself. Scammers use images/photos from other ads to con men into a scam!
