What is the Homepage Gallery?
Gumtree's Homepage Gallery is a section on the homepage where your Ads can be displayed for several days. More people read and reply to these Ads because of their prominent position on the homepage. There is a fee to include your Ad in the Homepage Gallery.

What are the benefits of being in the Homepage Gallery?
Ads in the Homepage Gallery get more visitors and more replies than other Ads on Gumtree because of their prominent position on the homepage, which gets more visits than any other single page on the site. This helps you sell an item quicker, get more exposure for your service, and so on. As well, your Ad will continue to appear within the regular category and search listings, giving your Ad even more exposure even after your Ad is no longer in the Homepage Gallery.

Why can't I see my Ad in the Homepage Gallery?
The Homepage Gallery only shows a few Ads at a time. If there are more Ads than can be displayed, you can refresh the page or click an arrow to the right of the Ads to see more Ads. Or you can click the "See all" link to browse all the Homepage Gallery Ads. Please keep in mind that your Ad may take a few minutes to first appear in the Homepage Gallery immediately after you pay your Homepage Gallery fee.

How can I include my Ad to the Homepage Gallery?
You can have your Ad shown in the Homepage Gallery by clicking the "Homepage Gallery" checkbox when you post a new Ad on Gumtree.

In which categories are Ads eligible for inclusion in the Homepage Gallery?
