How do I place an ad?

Which Category should I choose?

Select the category and sub-category that best describes the item you are selling. Simply describe the item you are selling and click on any other the categories suggested. Alternatively, click on the most relevant category available from the category tree. If you believe your advert doesn‘t fit in any section in the category finder, or if you are unsure which category to choose, then email SouqKatar Customer Services.

What makes a good title for an advert?

The title of your advert should summarize in no more than four words the item you are selling. You want someone to see the title of your advert and be able to tell what it is you are selling, without it being too complicated. Remember: the simpler, the better.
Please note:

All adverts will have to be manually approved by the admin before they appear on the site.
Property adverts should state the area the property is located (e.g. Street 2, Industrial Area, Doha)

Why do I need to state the area for my item?

No matter what sort of item a customer is searching for on, the customer inevitably searches for items as close to them as possible. As a result we ask all our advertisers to include a physical location of their item to allow our customers to find their advert quickly and easily.

Are you going to publish my location?

We take our customer‘s privacy very seriously and will only publish a map of the rough area of the postcode you have entered. This map is to help to give our customers an idea of where the item is being sold from. At no point should a map show the exact location of where the item is kept,unless of course if the customer is willing to.

Payment Options

We accept payment by credit or debit card,cash on delivery, bank transfer and PayPal.

Is buying online secure?

We only use secure 3rd party payment options which are Barclays SmartPay, Mastercard, Visa, Stripe  and Paypal

Pricing my item

In order to get an idea as to what sort of price you should sell your item at, the best thing to do is to research what other similar items are priced at. You want a price which is competitive but which you are also happy with. Remember if there are other items which are similar to yours at a lower cost you are unlikely to get a lot of interest.

If you have no specific price in mind and just want to see how much money you can get for an item then why not place the advert and leave the price as simply Offers. This will mean customers can contact you and put a price forward that they would be happy to pay. A word of warning on this, however, as it can put some people off who imagine the item would be too expensive for them, or it can encourage customers who are only prepared to pay a small amount.

Why has my item been rejected?

All adverts are subject to the SouqKatar advertising policy, which offers guidance on which items we will and will not publish.
