Διαφήμιση στα κτηματομεσιτικά χωρίς έγκυρη άδεια

19 Απριλίου, 2014

Advertising in Real Estate sections as a business without a valid licence

18th of April, 2014

If you are advertising real estate (sale and rent), as a business, without having a valid licence from the Cyprus Council of Real Estate Agents [as stated by Cyprus Real Estate Law 273(1) 2004], kindly remove all your adverts from www.bazaraki.com immediately by logging in to My Ads.

Failure to do so could get you blocked from selling and buying on Bazaraki.com and even worse, legal sanctions could be taken against you by third parties.

Thank you for your understanding.



 

New field

17th of April, 2014

For legal reasons, it is now mandatory to indicate whether you are a business or private advertiser when you create an advert.

You can log in to My Ads to adjust this field if you have an existing advert.


Gmail whitelist procedure

14th of April, 2014

To make sure Gmail never filters as spam mail from a certain contact or domain:

  • Click the Show search options downward-pointing triangle in your Gmail's main search field.
  • Type the desired email address under From.
  • To whitelist an entire domain, type @bazaraki.com as the domain name.
  • Make sure "Never send it to Spam" is checked.

Possible issue with gmail accounts

5th of April, 2014 

We have had several people contact us today that they have not received their activation emails, all with gmail accounts. Please check your spam/junk folders for an email from webmaster@bazaraki.com AND add webmaster@bazaraki.com to your address book and whitelist - otherwise replies to your advert will also end up in there and you could miss out on a potential sell!


Beware of stolen bicycles

2nd of April, 2014

We have had several reports of stolen bicycles being offered for sale on Bazaraki.com. Naturally we are fully co-operating with the police in the ongoing investigations as this is completely unacceptable.

Please note that if you have bought a stolen bicycle, not only do you risk loosing it (to the original owner), you also loose the money you paid the scammer for it and you can even be charged by the police if you could have been aware/suspicious of it being stolen (too low price for example). So make sure that when you buy a bicycle (or ANY OTHER ITEM on Bazaraki.com) you know exactly who the seller is! Phone number, where they live, ask to see a copy of a drivers license or passport and write down the details. If they are honest, they will not mind giving this to you...

Buying online is fun... but stay safe!

We have increased the number of Featured Adverts on the homepage so that ALL are viewable. You get more exposure for your paid Featured Advert that way :-)

We have also decreased the number of Latest Adverts on the homepage to 5 ads. This is to stop the influx of people putting double adverts because they want to be on the homepage for free.

 


17th of February, 2012 

Please do not put more than one advert for the same item. We consider it spamming and it's not nice for other users. We like to keep a clean site. If you want to be on the homepage or at the top of your category, please log in to "My Ads" and upgrade your advert(s) there. Thank you.

Thought for the day: Advertising on social sites might sound attractive, but it is expensive and people are generally on these sites to socialize, like and play games....they are not in a buying and selling state of mind....people on www.bazaraki.com are... you will receive quality clicks. Please keep that in mind next time you decide where to advertise your goods, services or company.

Use it, but don't abuse it.

Bazaraki.com costs nothing to use (even companies can advertise for free) and it always will be.      

We understand that with more than 1600 people checking out the website every day, everyone wants their advert on the homepage without paying. But please resist the temptation to create double, triple, quadruple adverts for THE SAME ITEM....

However much we like the site to be full, it is not nice to browse through. Failure to respect this policy will get you blocked.

At the end of the day we also have bills to pay and mouths to feed.

Please respect that.

Upgrading to a Featured Advert is only 4,50 Euro. 

Look at all the hits they get, it is well worth the tiny investment of going to My Ads.

So.... use it, but don't abuse it. Efgaristo :-)

 

New categories for CHRISTMAS and HALLOWEEN

Do you have costumes or decorations for sale?

Organizing a bazar or party?

Then create your adverts in these new categories.

 

Garages & Repairs

Another new category waiting to be filled. Please pass it on:

www.bazaraki.com/cars-trucks-vans/garages-repairs

 

Category Other

There are almost 150 adverts in Other/'Alla. We have looked, and for 90% of these, there are categories available. You will sell your adverts faster if you place your ads where they belong!

You would look for a pair of sunglasses where the other sunglasses are, nowhere else, and the same goes for online shoppers.... We will be cleaning and distributing the adverts where they belong shortly, but realise that for that many adverts, it takes us about 2 days to do!

Getting more viewers for your adverts with PayPal

Those of you who would like to have your adverts on the homepage or at the top of a category have discovered that payment

for these extra services takes place online via PayPal. For many (new) internet users, this can seem scary.

This educational video will give you a GREAT explanation of how PayPal works and why it is so safe and fast:

 

Click here to watch the demo:

Most importantly:

* PayPal is free to use and works seamlessly with your existing credit card, or bank account.

* It is like a digital wallet. Your infomation is stored safely with PayPal and no where else!

* There is no need to fill in all your sensitive information again the next time you want to buy something online.

* PayPal protects your purchases, so if there is a problem, you get your money back.

* PayPal is accepted at thousands of websites, from leading brands to small independent retailers.

If you can, try and use non-polish email addresses. Polish internet providers block the activation emails for some reason. Please contact them and ask them to white list emails from webmaster@bazaraki.com. We have done so many times, but we still get many failure delivery's back. Other foreign countries do not have this problem.

 1st of May, 2011

 

We will be awarding 2 x 2 free movie tickets EVERY week for all of May and June! Courtesy of www.kcineplex.com

 

How do you win? Simple:

 

Spring clean your office, house, garden, garage, friends and families houses, etc for as many items as possible that are unused and resellable.

 

The two people who have placed the most adverts between Monday to (and including) Sunday every week, get two free tickets each to a Kcineplex movie. 

 

Easy right? And you will be helping to recycle perfectly good goods ;-)

 

What are the rules?


 
* You can participate as often as you like, but you can only win once.
* Companies are, unfortunately for them, excluded from this competition until further notice.
* Participants must live in Cyprus.
* Perhaps stating the obvious, but all items advertised must exist and really be for sale. We will double check!
* If adverts are placed for similar goods (such as CD's for example), only the first ten (10) adverts will count.
* Only adverts placed in the correct categories (or as close as possible) will be counted. Please keep Bazaraki.com clean.
* No double adverts. They will be removed immediately. Again, keep Bazaraki tidy so that we can all find what we are looking for.


 
Happy spring cleaning everyone! Let's go the movies.....

Check the second paragraph of the press release below, the name of the eBay Inc. President and CEO.....

 

Since we have a love/hate relationship with the printed press: we love them.... they hate us (for taking away their classified ads revenue), they will not even accept our paid adverts or give us any coverage (except the Sunday Mail, bless them), we decided to have some fun!

eBay signs letter of intent to acquire Bazaraki.com


San Jose, California and Limassol, Cyprus April 1, 2011 - eBay, the World's Online Marketplace (Nasdaq: EBAY; www.ebay.com), today announced that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire Bazaraki.com (www.bazaraki.com), the leading classifieds website in Cyprus which is about to launch its web portal in Greece. eBay intends to purchase Bazaraki.com from its current owners. The acquisition would allow Bazaraki.com to grow its business both in Cyprus as well as in Greece through the investment and online trading expertise of eBay. eBay will be able to expand its e-commerce position in South Eastern Europe while adding to its growing knowledge of classifieds-style trading. eBay plans to continue to operate Bazaraki.com as a separate business.

 

"Bazaraki.com has enjoyed tremendous success in Cyprus and seems to be in a position to become the leading classifieds website in Greece having a target customer basis of well over 11 million people as well," said Mr A.F. Day, eBay Inc. President and CEO. "Learning from each other, we can strengthen both platforms and provide Greek Cypriot and Greek consumers with even better trading opportunities."

 

"We have built Bazaraki.com into the leading classifieds website in Cyprus with tremendous growth opportunities in Greece as well" said Saskia Koper-Groenevelt, one of the managing directors of Bazaraki.com. "With its strong global presence and technical expertise, eBay can help expand our business into the future."

 

Founded in 2005 and based in Limassol, Bazaraki.com is the most popular classifieds website in Cyprus. With more than 2,500 updated listings at any given time, Bazaraki.com offers a venue where buyers and sellers can meet to trade a wide array of items, from clothing and collectibles to cars and household items.

 

"Bazaraki.com is a great match with eBay in its intent to grow its business for the Greek speaking community in South East Europe," said Erik van Hoving who has been leading the negotiations with Ebay. "Together, we can help consumers get the most out of e-commerce no matter which format they choose."

 

Under the terms of the letter of intent, Bazaraki.com may solicit acquisition proposals from third parties for a 30-day "go-shop" period continuing through May 1, 2011. It is not anticipated that any developments will be disclosed with regard to this process unless Bazaraki's Board of Directors makes a decision with respect to a potential superior proposal. The agreement provides eBay with a customary right to match a superior proposal. There is no guarantee that this process will result in a superior proposal.

 

Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Peter J. Solomon Company are acting as financial advisers to eBay, while Harneys Aristidomou, Loizides & Yiolits is acting as legal adviser to Bazaraki.com.

 

eBay intends to acquire all outstanding shares of Bazaraki.com for an undisclosed amount. eBay does not expect the acquisition to have a material impact on 2011 net revenue and earnings per share, and does not expect it to affect eBay's financial guidance as issued in connection with its first quarter earnings release.

 

Forward-Looking Statements
This announcement contains forward-looking statements regarding the expected impact of the acquisition of Bazaraki.com on eBay's revenues and earnings. Those statements involve risks and uncertainties, and actual results could differ materially from those discussed. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, the reaction of the users of Bazaraki.com's services, the future growth of Bazaraki.com's services, the reaction of competitors to the transaction, and the possibility that successful integration of Bazaraki.com's operations and employees will prove more difficult than expected. More information about potential factors which could affect eBay's business and financial results is included in eBay's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and the company's Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. All forward-looking statements are based on information available to eBay on the date hereof, and eBay assumes no obligation to update such statements.

Last chance to win free Kcineplex movie tickets. Fill in the questionnaire before Friday, April 1, 2011:

www.surveymonkey.com/s/N3V5GP7

 


FACT: The more viewers your ad has, the more chances of success you will have.

 

10 Tips to increase your viewers:

 

1) Make sure the price is right! You would not buy something overpriced, so why would someone else? Be realistic, not greedy.
2) Make sure your ad is in the correct category! You would not go looking for a washing machine in a clothes shop, so neither will your potential buyers.
3) Ask us to move your ad if you feel it is in the wrong category: marketing@bazaraki.com.
4) Make sure you upload atleast one picture which gives a good impression.
5) Only put your ad in the category "others" if you are 100% sure there is no applicable (sub)category available.
6) Email us category suggestions if you feel one is missing: marketing@bazaraki.com.
7) Make sure your title clearly states what you are selling and include a good description.
8) Email and tell your friends, family and colleagues about your ads on Bazaraki.com.
9) Feature, Promote or BumbUP your ad (read more below).
10) If you are not getting the response you would like, log in to My Ads and change your price, title, picture or description.

 

NOTE: Make sure webmaster@bazaraki.com is in your addressbook, otherwise emails from potential buyers may have ended up in your spam/junk folders.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

To help you we are constantly doing the following:

 

1) Adding and renaming categories. There are now around 30 main categories and 300 subcategories.
2) Moving adverts into appropriate categories if we feel they have been misplaced.
3) Introduced a sorting option. Interested parties can now sort all adverts in a category by:
    - price (high to low)
    - price (low to high)
    - most recent
    - most popular
4) Promoting adverts on our Facebook pages.
5) Promoting adverts through Twitter.
6) Advertising online and offline.
7) Always answering any questions or inquiries within 24 hours.
8) Constantly rethinking the layout (yes we keep it simple and non-flashy on purpose :-).
9) Protecting you from scammers and spammers.
10) Simply doing our absolute best so that goods are properly advertised and "recycled".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

We have also introduced three (3) new ways to increase your chances of success:

 

When you login to "My Ads" you will see three buttons next to each of your adverts called Featured, Promoted and BumpUP:
 
1) Featured

This option will put your advertisement on the homepage for a week. Bazaraki.com receives more than 1000 unique visitors PER DAY (and is still growing), so you are guaranteed to see the hits increase. The price is only 4,50 Euro per week and well worth it. All major credit cards are accepted.
 
Placing your advert is also possible for longer than a week. This has not yet been integrated into "My Ads" but payments can still be done via PayPal or bank transfer. Just contact marketing@bazaraki.com for details. The rates are 8 Euro for 2 weeks. 12 Euro for 3 weeks. 15 Euro for 1 month or 25 Euro for 2 months.


2) Promoted

This will highlight your advert to a bright yellow colour in the category and make it jump out immediately from all the other adverts. Your ad will stay highlighted for as long as it is online. So ALSO if you were to automatically renew it. The cost is 4,50 for a lifetime and all major credit cards are accepted. This feature is great in combination with a BumpUP.


3) BumpUP
 
This option moves your advert to the top of the list so that people clicking on the main category will see it first. It will also appear on the homepage again under "Latest Adverts". It can be purchased whenever you want your advert back at the top again. Th e cost is 3,99 and all major credit cards are accepted. This feature is great in combination with the Promoted option.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Advertising on the Internet does not have to be expensive to be effective:

 

You could also consider placing a banner for your company that links directly to your own website.
Prices start from as low as 12,50 Euro per month! And we can even create the banner for you.
There are two options:
 
1) A vertical banner on the homepage
2) A horizontal banner in one or both of the categories "Real Estate Sale" or "Real Estate Rent".

9th of February, 2011

 

We have been made aware of a new scam. Advertisers are contacted by text message (usually a UK +44 number). They are then sent an email with a (fake) PayPal payment or Western Union payment. The advertiser is then asked to send the shipping costs to an agent/third party. This is of course your own money, since the actual payment was never made in the first place.

 

Buying and selling through the Internet is safe, cheap and a lot of fun. It is however important to use your common sense. Be careful if you are offered more than your asking price, if the potential buyer is located abroad, or if someone pays with a cheque (it takes a few days for the bank to clear the cheque). We advice you to never use Western Union, HSBC bank, BidPay or MoneyGram if you are doing business with an unknown party.

 

We also advise you to not ship your goods abroad!
