    Problem advertising on Gumtree AU

    Hi, I am in the UK trying to post an advert on Gumtree AU. the advert seems to go through but when i look at my account there are no active listings?:arghh: I tried one last night and today, tried on my iPad and my laptop. Any suggestions? Thanks Tyrone
  2. Im emigrating to Melbourne (still in UK at mo) and have been applying for property ads on Melbourne Gumtree for last month (sharing, short term, rental, etc) Although it gives the message "your reply has successfully been sent", I think that all my hard work has been for nothing as im pretty sure that they havent gotten through. I have had no replies, even from estate agents and ive applied for a good 100 ads. I have also replied to recent ads selling stuff saying ill buy it at asking price and still no reply. I also spotted that when you create an ad (again, ad posted ok message), the ad never appears and I never get an email confirming that its gone in (like with english gumtree). Thing is, there are a lot of relevant ads on Gumtree and I need to apply for them. I think I understand the reasoning behind it, its to stop scammers from "dodgy" countries trying to scam the innocent (which happens a lot on gumtree, ive had this a number of times on English site). Googling for this issue also throws up similar people ranting about it and blaming gumtree, but nothing helpful. I know Gumtree is a free site, so ive got no intention of writing complaints etc. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how I could get around this? For instance, using some kind of IP address thing to mimic my location to be in Oz? I picked up on this cos I noticed someone talking about iPlayer being blocked in Oz, but he had gotten around it by using some kind of ip hider or something? I tried looking for Australian proxys, but this did not work either. Ive also registered on Gumtree but this does not seem to make any difference. Ive only got till 23rd Feb and dont fancy spending my first month in a backapackers. I have a few viewings sorted for first couple of weeks from Domain/Real Estate, but a lot more ads on Gumtree look better (and avoid agent fees). What are other peoples opinions on this?
  3. Hi, Due to the lack of short term rentals available in January I have contacted someone on Gumtree and agreed to rent their rental house for a month. Is this safe? They've agreed to only charge 2 weeks up front and accept a Bond upon arrival instaed of sending up front but I'm worried that I could end up with nowhere to live upon arrival?! Just looking for some reassurance really? Is there anything I could ask to prove who they are/own the property? Thanks, Steve.

    Gumtree Melbourne

    Hi guys... ...I've been looking over Gumtree Melbourne as i've decided to try and set myself up with some accomoodation in the city (or south down towards St Kilda on the frankston line) .... Has anyone else used gumtree melbourne from the UK - I'm having loads of trouble (none of my messages to sellers are getting through) and its all because i am using a UK IP address.... ...Spoke to Gumtree via their e-mail/ticket system and they say its a service for Australians only but will try and sort something out so that i can reply (nothing as of yet though) ...Basically looking to share a flat/house in the afore mentioned areas rather than paying silly furnished rental prices and by going through gumtree hoping to avoid the estate agents costs/charges.... ...Just looking temporary as i fly out 17th June and thought it would be good to share with someone as i don't know Melbourne at all really....
