Take the pain out of paying

From web wizards to total technophobes, placing an ad on DoneDeal couldn’t be easier whether by phone, card or PayPal Making payments online can be a frustrating experience if you have to keep whipping out your credit card when making transactions. Let’s keep things simple At DoneDeal, we understand that you may not always have a debit card or credit card to hand when placing an ad. That is why we have developed a range of easy-to-use payment options for advertisers. From the web savvy to complete technophobes, placing your ad couldn’t be easier. Let’s start at the very beginning. We will ask you to input the details of your ad and then give you an opportunity to review these details before we ask for payment. It’s your call The payment screen will then appear, with three tabs. The one that opens automatically allows you to pay by phone. You do not need a credit card for this option. Instead, the cost of the phone call is deducted from your phone credit or appears on your next phone bill. Make sure you have the bill payer’s permission first and be aware that some phone companies will charge you more than the standard €3 cost for placing an ad on DoneDeal. So have a look at our frequently updated fees page in the help section or ask your phone company how much they charge for a call to a 1518 premium number. The pay ‘by phone’ tab will give you the number to call and an activation code directly linked to the ad details you have entered. The code is valid for 24 hours and be sure to ring that number only once. You will be charged per call, so if you ring up and fail to enter the activation code, you will still have to pay. Paying by phone is one of the easiest ways for DoneDealers to place an ad, which will appear online shortly after your call. If you do not see your ad immediately, do not call the 1518 number again. As we advise in our Help section, it can take a few minutes for your ad to be published while the payment is being processed. If within a reasonable amount of time, your ad hasn’t been published, do not try to pay again. Instead, email us at support[@]donedeal[dot]ie and we can sort out any problems. Ideal for card holders DoneDealers who prefer to use credit and debit cards can use the next tab. Click the link and you’ll be brought to a page asking you to enter your card details. Realex handles the transactions and this option is ideal if you want to pay using Laser, MasterCard, Visa or Maestro International. Paypal If you already have a PayPal account, the third tab is for you. You’ll be asked to enter your PayPal login details, which some users have connected to a credit card and find handier than entering credit card details. Of course, you do not need a PayPal account to place your transaction through PayPal, you can also use your credit card. #DoneDealing #Placinganad
