I posted an ad but can't find it. What's wrong?

Tip: you can keep track of your ads easily by logging in to your account and visiting your "My ads" page!

Your ad may not be live due to one of the following reasons:
• It is still under review - this will show on your My Ads page, under “Ads under review”
• It may have it violated our posting rules - if your ad needs to be edited before it can be published, this will show on your My Ads page, under “Ads that need editing”
• You have used up your free ad allowance

If you have been waiting longer than 24 hours for a response from us, you may have given us the wrong contact details when you posted the ad. Try posting again or contact us.
