Frequently Asked Questions

Why is my ad still processing?

The status ‘processing’ means that your ad is being automatically processed by the Gumtree system which includes going through automated filters designed to prevent suspicious activity.

If you recently posted or edited your ad and it is “processing” give it at least 4 hours and you should find the ad status changes to “Live” so that your ad is appearing on the site. In very rare circumstances this process can take up to 12 hours.
