How do a place a classified ad?
You must be registered in order to post a free forsale ad. The registration is a ONE STOP registration and will allow you access to other areas of the site with the same name. Register here.

This is for the public classifieds at: https://www.novas.net/classifieds/

  • Go to the classifieds section and click on * Place an Ad * at the right of the middle color bar. Remember, you must be logged in to see this link.
  • Choose the category: Forsale, Wanted or Ebay Auction. Ebay ads in other categories are removed.
  • Click the Submit Button
  • Choose the correct category for your AD. Use Care! This is important and placing the item in the wrong year may result in poor response. (Do not post the same ad in multiple categories or they will most likely all be deleted)
  • Click the Submit Button
  • Enter the information requested on this screen - If you wish to add a photo(s) click the browse button and locate and select (highlight) the image on your computer that you would like to use. Either double click the image or select "Open". Our classifieds will accept most image sizes and will automatically resample them to 640 X 480 plus create thumbnails!
    • Note: you cannot link to a photo on the internet, the program needs the file in order to create the thumbnail and size the image correctly.
  • Enter your price - do NOT use the dollar $ sign or you will be asked to re-enter the information. $ signs are special characters in programming language.
  • Enter your zip code so that others will know the distance - neat feature! Note, this is a US only function. Canadians may enter the nearest US zipcode if they wish, or use their regular code, it just will not calculate the distance.
  • Enter how long you wish to run your ad. You have the ability to renew ads before they expire so choose appropriately.
  • Phone number is optional.
  • City is optional
  • State is optional but is very important to many buyers, we strongly urge you to enter this.
  • IMPORTANT:
    Display Email Address: If you wish to show an email address to anyone who views your ad, then enter it here.It may be different than what you registered with. Otherwise only other registered visitors will be able to contact you. This was done to prevent the overseas scammers from contacting you and also provides a bit higher security in knowing who the buyer really is.
  • When done, click Submit and your ad will be uploaded. Depending on the size of your image this may take awhile.
  • Your ad should now be on the site and visible.
  • If you wish to be notified of any comments that may be posted go to your ad and click "Receive Email Updates"

How do I contact someone who placed an ad?
How do I contact someone with a classified Ad?

Our classifieds have a default requirement of asking for you to register in order to contact sellers. This is for your protection and theirs.

Scammers and automated programs can no longer harvest email addresses to send out those wonderful scam emails offering to buy whatever you have and paying with a big rubber check while you are to send them the difference in your own hard earned cash.

There is an option for the poster to put either their regular email address or another one that is viewable by everyone. This is optional and they may/may not choose to use this method.

Registration is free and confirms that both buyers and sellers have real addresses and can be held accountable for poor performance.


How do I know if the seller is honest?
You may view the Member's Feedback to find out their rating.

Our classifieds allow others to rate the buyer/seller with a positive, neutral or negative feedback.

To view someone's ratings.

  • In the Classifieds Section, click on any Ad that they have running.
  • Their member name may already have a star(s) next to it. Stars are provided in increments by receiving a number of positive reviews.
  • Click on their username to view current feedback
It will appear as follows in this example:
  • Member's Feedback
  • Members Rating 1 stars (1 points)
  • Positive Comments 1
  • Neutral Comments None
  • Negative Comments None
Click here to read feedback - this will allow you to view all comments.


How can I leave feedback on a seller?
You may leave feedback on someone you had a transaction with.

Our classifieds allow others to rate the buyer/seller with positive, neutral or negative feedback.

To add a positive, negative or neutral feedback, do the following.

  • You must be logged in.
  • In the Classifieds Section, click on any Ad that they have running.
  • Click on their username to leave feedback
  • Enter your feedback in the box provided on the bottom right.
  • Click Submit when finished
Note: Comments must be fair and specific. "Is a jerk" does not help anyone and will probably be deleted.
