Premium Ads

1. Who can use Quikr Premium Paid Ads?

Any individual or business who meets Quikr’s Listing policy and Terms of Use can opt for Quikr’s Premium Listings.

2. Why should you use Quikr Premium Ads?

Premium ads help you make your ad more visible, reach out to more consumers and sell your product or service faster.

3. How can one select their product or service to be a Premium Ad?

To opt for a Premium ad, you need to first start posting your ad on Quikr. As part of the Post ad flow, you will have an option to either post your ad as a free ad or a Premium paid ad. At this stage, you can select for a Premium ad option.

4. How many types of Premium Ads are there and what does a Premium Ad look like?

There are 2 types of Premium ads: Top of the page ad and Urgent + Top of the page. An Urgent + Top of the page ad gives you a top position on the respective category page while also providing you with a star on your ad. Top of the page ad gives you the same position but without the urgent banner

5. How can I recognise a Premium Ad?

All Premium Ads are easily recognizable.
Top of the page ad: As the name says, they appear right at the Top of each category’s ad results. They are further highlighted in blue for increased visibility.
Urgent + Top of the page ad: They are indicated by a green star before the title and have all the other advantages of a Top of the page ad
You will see these symbols on the browse page, View ad page and in your My Quikr section.

6. How do I pay for Premium Ads on Quikr?

Currently, we offer 3 modes of payment options for Premium ads:

  • Credit/Debit/Cash Card payment.
  • Cheque payment.
  • Payment through Quikr’s Ad Credits.

You can choose either of these options to pay for your Premium ad. More details about these are part of the Post Ad process on Quikr.

7. How long does my Ad remain as a Premium Ad?

All ads on Quikr stay on site for 90 days as long as they meet the Listing Policy and Terms Of Use of the website. All Premium ads currently whether Top Of Page or Urgent stay as a Premium ad on the website for 30 days. And after the first 30 days they continue to be active on the site for another -30 days as a normal ad. ( Not in a premium position )

8. Do Premium Ads immediately get active once I have paid for it?

All Premium ads go live to site after 24 Hours of the ad being posted. However, in case you opt for a payment option by cheque, your Premium ad will get active on the website only after the cheque is encashed by Quikr.

9. Can I see or monitor my Premium Ads in My Quikr?

Yes you can check your Premium ads as well as edit them when required from My Quikr.

10. Can I post an Ad with a higher fee in a category with a lower fee?

No you cannot. That would be misleading and would not be very helpful as the ability for relevant consumers to see your ad in the right category would be lost. Thereby losing all the benefits of the Premium ad position. You may also be penalised by Quikr for doing so.

11. Can I edit my Premium Ad?

Yes, in the first 5 days after your Premium ad goes live on Quikr, you can edit your Premium ad through the Paid ads section in My Quikr.

12. Can I continue to post free Ads on Quikr?

Yes, you can continue to post free ads on Quikr.

13. Can I renew my Premium Ad?

Yes, you can renew your Premium ad after 30 days.

14. Can I get a refund for my Premium Ad?

Listing Fees for your Premium ad are NOT refundable, except in the instance of deletion of the ad by Quikr at the time of review (within 24 hours of it being posted) due to violation of Listing Policy/ Terms of Use or miscategorization of the ad. See Premium ads fees.
