Getting it Right: Being safe :slightly_smiling_face:

The Basics

Under 18?

It’s 18 and over here please.

If it’s not in your possession, you can’t sell it

This includes tickets and pre-order items.

No duplicates please

Don’t create more than one ad for the same item, or create multiple accounts.

Don’t leave it live

Once your ad has done its job, delete it. If you don’t, other users might still contact you about it, which is a nuisance for them and you.

Putting everything in right place

Get the tags right

Our tags work hard to connect the right ad with the right buyer. Please don’t try to get more views or avoid paying our fees by posting in the wrong one. You’ll get better results when your ad appears in the right place.

Writing a great ad

Follow the ad template

Keep website links and contact details in the designated place and out of your ad title, description and photos. Don’t be tempted to spam with keywords.

Steer clear of disputes by writing a clear and honest description of your item.

Use plain English and keep it clean. That goes for the images you post too. You’re welcome to add a translation in another language in your item description. Ads that clearly state what the item is are easier for users to find.

Got a job lot?

You can post multiple items in one ad if you’re selling them together. Otherwise, you’ll need to create individual ads.

The price is right

Clearly state the price you want for your item. You’re welcome to invite near offers if you want, but don’t invite bids. iAbroad isn’t an auction house.

Aim for face-to-face

Don’t say you’ll only send an item in the post. Indians Abroad is a community. We encourage our users to meet face-to-face whenever possible.

In addition, we have put together a list of stores and restaurants catering to the Indian palette. Note that iabroad.co is NOT affiliated with any of these businesses. Our only aim is to direct you to the right places.
