How to buy
There are several ways to buy or sign up for an item or service being
offered on USFreeads depending on the individual sellers preferences.
When you browse through the categories and find something you're interested
in, there are several possible things that you can do depending on what
is being offered and the sellers preferences for that particular ad:
- Contact the seller for more information
- Contact the seller to negotiate a price
- Visit the advertisers website via their web link
for more information or to buy
- Buy directly for a fixed price from an ad
One thing to remember is that USFreeads provides a classified advertising
service which works in a similar way to a traditional newspaper advertising
section, where the adverts themselves are placed by individual advertisers
who are offering an item, product or service and the buying/selling process
is handled directly between buyer and seller.
the advertiser for more information:
|Quite often you'll find something
that you may be interested in but you have additional questions
that you'd like to ask the seller before you make your mind up.
Each ad has a 'reply to ad' form at the bottom where you enter your
name, email address and inquiry and this gets sent directly to the
seller. Once a seller is in receipt of your message, they'll get
back to you as soon as possible to answer your inquiry.
the advertiser to negotiate a price:
|Lots of sellers specify a price
on their ad, but this may be open to negotiation. You can contact
the seller in exactly the same way as you would if you were requesting
additional information (above) and ask them if their price is firm
or you could make them an offer.
The seller will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible to answer
your questions and give you further information on how to buy.
the advertisers website via their web link for more info or to buy:
|Many sellers have their own website
which they link to from their ad. Some websites may be eCommerce
enabled sites where you can make a purchase directly from their
website after clicking the link in the ad, and other websites may
be information sites which help you make your mind up about something
before you buy. If you visit an advertisers website, you can contact
the seller directly from their own pages or through their ad.
directly from the ad at a fixed price:
|Lots of advertisers have enabled
their ads for you to make a purchase by clicking a 'buy now' button
which takes you to the PayPal secure payment server where you can
send a payment. You bank/card information is completely secure and
never revealed to the seller as PayPal is a third-party payment
When buying in this way, the seller will often contact you to advise
you of shipping details etc. and you can contact the advertiser
directly with any questions that you may have.
