Ads can be purchased by Members using Classified Ads 'Points'. Non-Members can only create 'Wanted' adverts.
Members are given a 1000 points as a starter package. The points you have can be checked by logging in and going to 'My Points' under the CLASSIFIEDS Menu. This allocation last a long time so is pretty much a one time only request.
(In the unlikely event of you using up all your points, more can be requested via email@example.com.)
The allocation of points to new members is, unfortunately, a manual process so new members may find they don't immediately have points. In this case then please contact firstname.lastname@example.org stating your membership number, to request your points package.
