1. Click on Post Free Ads on the home page. At the top right corner is the Bulk Upload button, click it. Please remember that it is available only for dealers.
2. On the page that opens, enter the category, subcategory and sub-sub category to which the product or service that you want to advertise belongs along with your location. Then click on Download Sample.
A readymade excel file gets downloaded which is pre-populated with fields required for the ads of your products. For instance, if you are a car and vehicles dealer in the motorcycles and scooter subcategory and motorcycles sub-sub category, the excel file will have columns such as model, brand, variant etc. for filling in these details about the motorcycles you want to post ads for.
3. In this readymade excel file, enter the details of every product that you want to advertise for. In the image column, you can enter the URL of the image that you want to appear in that ad. On the other hand, you can also create a zip folder of images, number them and enter the number of that image in the image column which you want to appear in that ad. So, if your images are numbered 1, 2, 3 and so on, the image number 3 will appear with the ad in whose image column you write 3.
4. It is time to post the ads now. Go to the Bulk upload page and upload the excel file which you have just prepared and the zip folder of images after entering the category, sub category, sub-sub category and location. When you submit, all your ads will be posted in the given category.
How ADSCT makes your ad posting experience smooth and straightforward?
If you already have an excel file and want to use it rather than our readymade sample?
Then you do not need to download the sample but can directly upload your own excel file. If there is a mismatch between the columns in your own excel file and our template, our dedicated team of data entry executives will modify your excel file and upload it at our end. In this case, your ad posting could get delayed by 2-3 days as our executives prepare your excel file.
If you have many products but they belong to different categories?
You can sit back and chill because we have taken due care to make free classifieds in Australia a breezy affair for you at ADSCT. You can change the category of any number of ads from those which you posted through bulk ads. All you have to do is go to Manage Ads in your account and select ads whose category you want to change. In the drop down menu next to Select All, choose Change Category. A page asking you the new category that you want to assign to the selected ads will open from which you can choose as per your requirement. Then, click Change category and yes, your job is done.
To remove your ad, follow the steps below:
i. Click the My ADSCT tab on the top and select Manage Ads. All your posted ads will be displayed.

· Bulk ads take time to get uploaded and bulk ads from a single dealer are not posted consecutively. They are posted alternatively among bulk ads of other dealers so that every dealer has a fair exposure and bulk ads from a single dealer do not cover pages on an end.
· If none of the above is your case, please feel free to get in touch so that your ad can be up as soon as possible.
