Q: I’m not able to edit my posting / Buttons are not showing for me to edit my post / Menus are out of place and text boxes are jumbled together
A: This is caused by a common compatibility problem faced by many sites due to the multiple Internet Explorer versions. If our site is incompatible with Internet Explorer version that you are using, you’ll see the Compatibility View button in the Address bar.
1. Open Internet Explorer
2. Go to “Tools”
3. Uncheck “Compatibility View”
4. Refresh the page and you should be able to edit the posting.
We hope this works as it worked for us. However, if it still doesn’t work, it should be fixed by following the instructions on Compatibility View settings by Microsoft: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/use-compatibility-view#ie=ie-10
If all else fails, drop us a mail and we’ll see how we can help. We thank you for your patience in advance!

A: Providing photos, descriptions of the item (eg.condition, specs, usage) and whether the price is negotiable, all helps help your potential buyer to consider buying your item.
Q: What’s considered to be a good price?
A: Prices are subjective and are at the sole discretion of the seller. However, if you ask us, we’d say a good gauge would be to knock at least 20-30% off if it’s used but in good condition. Do consider the model, brand and season as well as how quickly you want to get rid of it.
