Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What does an advert fee cost?

Advertisements are 5€ per advertisement for a duration of 8 weeks.

Does it cost anything to reactivate a parked advert?

The advertisement can be parked and re-entered at any time during the 8-week term of the advertisement. So if you park an advertisement that ends in 4 weeks, for example, you can post the advertisement again free of charge within these 4 weeks. Only if you post an expired ad again, the fee will be re-charged.

Does the sale of a device cost a commission in addition to the 5 Euro?

The customer only pays the advertisement fee. There is no commission.

What does "Rate purchase" mean?

audio-markt does not automatically find out if a purchase has taken place. However, if you would like to rate your purchaser or seller, this requires that the purchaser, seller and purchase price are known. The buyer must therefore first confirm the purchase of a device in his user menu.
