About Public Ads

Since Public Ads was launched in 2009, millions of people just like you have bought and sold on Public Ads, helping to make us one of the fastest growing classifieds communities.


Now with over 1 million people using Public Ads and viewing over 280,000 ads each month, Public Ads is one of the most popular places to buy and sell in South Africa.


Our goal is simple; to help you turn your unwanted stuff into cash in the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective way possible, and (lets face it) what's more cost effective than free?


With ads posted all over the South Africa, it has never been easier for our users to buy and sell within their own communities. In addition to that, however, we also recognise the value of being able to trade nation-wide.


Remember, posting a Basic advert is 100% free of charge, no fee to post your advert, no commission payments, no hidden costs; whatever money you make is 100% yours.


This is our way of thanking you, our users, for making Public Ads what it is.


The real beauty with Public Ads is in its simplicity. Whether you're selling a high-value motor vehicle or a low-value household product, Public Ads has the tools to get your item seen and we're constantly listening to your feedback to improve our service.
