A pop up message will appear asking if you are sure you want to delete the ad. Please be aware that once you delete an ad the action cannot be undone. If you are ready to delete your ad click “Ok”.


When will my ad expire?

Ads will expire in 30 days from the time posted to your market. Ads can be canceled at any time by the customer or the administrator of the site at any time.


Who will see my ad?

LAswapshop.com is used in Louisiana, as well as a few other states. If you post your ad in a particular city, the ad will be visible to everyone browsing the city level, the state level and the country level. However, if you do not specify a city and state, the ad will only be visible to people browsing on the country level. Your ads will get more visibility if you specify your city and state during the ad posting process.


How many ads can I post and can I post my ad in multiple cities?

There is no limit to the number of new and unique ads you can post. However, per our policy we ask that you please do not post the same ad more than once in 48 hours and do not post the same ad in more than one city or category. Duplicate ads may be removed without warning. With the way our search works, if you post your ad in a particular city our system will automatically display the ad in search results for nearby cities as well. This way your ad gets better visibility without you having to re-post it.


Can I put a link in my ad?

Yes, you can post a link in your ad. If you enter a web address starting with http it will become a click-able link in your ad. Avoid putting a comma or other punctuation at the end, as it may be considered part of the address.


Is it free to post ads?

Yes. LAswapshop.com is 100% free. You can post ads, browse ads, and respond to ads all for free. There are no fees or commissions. You are welcome to post an ad for free at any time.


How do I find my ad once it has been posted?

To locate your ad, click on the category that you chose while posting your ad. Check the city shown at the far right of the search bar to make sure you are browsing in the correct geographic location. If you are not searching in the correct location, click the drop down arrow to enter in the correct location. You can also find your ad by using the search bar and searching for your ad ID number. (It may take up to 24 hours for your ad to appear in search results.)
