Advertising Rates and Policies











 


Ad Deadline is Tuesday at 12 Noon for Thursday's Publication

2 Ways to Advertise in The Trading Post

#1. "Pay Only if You Sell" Advertising

You agree to give us a four week (four issue) period to help you sell your articles. The number of times your ad will run may vary slightly from four issues due to space available. If the article has not sold after four weeks (four issues), YOU CAN CANCEL THE AD WITHOUT CHARGE. If an ad is changed, it will appear for an additional four week period. You may, however, cancel the item at the end of the original four weeks.

A new ad listing may be cancelled prior to publication by calling us before the Tuesday, 12 noon deadline. If cancelled after the 12 noon deadline, THE FEE WILL BE DUE.

The advertising fee will be due if your article sells, regardless of how, during the full time it is advertised in the paper. All articles must be priced separately. The fee is based on the advertised price, not the selling price.

IF DURING THE FOUR WEEK PERIOD, your article becomes unavailable for sale, you change your mind about selling, cancel for any reason, your phone is disconnected, you move out of the area, you give away or trade the advertised item, THE ARTICLE WILL BE CONSIDERED SOLD AND THE FEE WILL BE DUE.

You agree to notify us when the article is sold.

Advertising fee due upon sale:

10% of the first $100
plus 5% of the second $100
plus 1% of amount of advertised price over $200
Minimum fee $2.00, Maximum fee $100.00
