The Market Section allows our Members to post offers or requests in specific subcategories.
Each ad has 3 subsections: Product/Service information, Product /Service details and Trade terms. In the first specific section, main features of the product/service are specified. The title needs to be as explicit as possible, like a small summary of your post, with no contact data inside. Use the language tabs if you want to translate your title in several languages, there is no automatic translation. In the Product /Service details subsection, aside specific details, Members can add a detailed description and upload up to 8 pictures (each should not exceed 5MB). Adding at least a photo to your market ad will significantly increase the number of views. In the last section Members can set up the price details, the incoterms, availability, valability and other ad attributes. Each ad has assigned a specific number, called the Reference number.
