There are several reasons why an Ad may have been removed from the site including:

When this happens your ad may be temporarily suspended (this depends on a few things) until we look at it. We check reported ads as quickly as we can. As long as we find that it hasn’t broken any Posting Policies (What are the General posting rules?) or bubingaa.co.za Terms of Use it should be back up again shortly. Check back after a few hours to see if this is the case.

Ads either reported to us (Reporting ads) or identified by our automated tools as inappropriate, that we then find do break our Posting Policies or Terms of Use, will be removed from the site.

In most cases we email you to let you know that we have had to remove your ad (and if possible provide your with an opportunity to resubmit). These emails sometimes get directed to junk folders so please look out for bubingaa.co.za emails. If your junk / spam settings are set at high, then bubingaa.co.za emails may not even be delivered to the spam / junk folder. You may wish to add bubingaa.co.za to your safe senders list if you have one.

If you have checked out all of these possibilities and none of them apply to your ad then please let us know by clicking on “Open a Case” located bottom of help pages and we’ll be happy to help you out.
