Bargain Basement
Frequently Asked Questions


Q:  How much does it cost to post an ad in the Bargain Basement?
A:  The service is absolutely free for you to use as often or as frequently as you wish.

Q:  How do I add a photo to my ad?
A:  You are free to borrow any of the images from our site to demonstrate what it is you are selling. The image your decide to use must be a published website photo and cannot be inserted directly from your computer. To use our images, right click on the image and click on "Properties". Copy the URL starting with http://. Paste it into the ad creator under:  "Image URL:". If you have a digital camera, I recommend taking a few photos of what you are selling so that when a buyer contacts you for the purchase or for more information, you are able to email additional photos to your buyer.

Q:  How do I accept Paypal payments within my ad?
A:  I highly recommend accepting Paypal payments within your ad.  Sellers who accept instant payment methods receive the best response.  Paypal makes it very easy to add "Buy Now" buttons to your ad.  Click here to get started.  Paypal will ask you a few simple questions, such as the 'Name' of what you are selling and the 'Price' in which you wish to sell your items.  Once you have answered the questions, Paypal will develop a "Buy Now" button for you to use in HTML code.  Copy and paste the code at the end of your Ad Content.  Once you post your ad, the crazy looking HTML code will automatically switch to your own personalized "Buy Now" button.  Once a buyer purchases your item(s), Paypal will notify you by email.  Be sure to revisit your ad and edit it as "SOLD" as soon as you are notified to avoid duplicate purchases from more than one buyer.

Q:  What can I sell within the Bargain Basement?
A:  Our categories are limited to anything pregnancy, mama, or baby related.  While cloth diapers are what most buyers will be looking for... no longer needed baby carriers, maternity clothes, baby equipment, or baby furniture are just a few other ideas of what you may be able to cash in on.  These items can all be listed within the category:  Baby General Store

Q:  How do I purchase an item within the Bargain Basement?
A:  Some listings will have a Paypal "Buy Now" button within the listing.  You do not need to have a Paypal account to make your payment to the seller.  For other listings, click on "Email" at the bottom of the listing for details on making your payment.

Q:  How do I mark my ad as "SOLD"?
A:  Revisit your ad within the Bargain Basement.  Click the "Edit" link at the bottom of your listing.  Enter your password.  Remember that it is case sensitive.  Check the box "Mark as Sold" and proceed to Edit Ad.
