Our platform is designed to empower the users with full control of their ads, i.e. you can edit, delete, or renew your ads at your own convenience and as many times as you like with a password issued by yourself.

In addition, by selecting the Standard ad format, your posting in the Marketplace can also be monitored as an item with our online Inventory Management tool. Business confidentiality may be maintained by opting not to publish your quantity and cost in public.
