NFED Classified Help & Frequently Asked Questions

My Advert Hasn't Been Approved?

Adverts are checked to ensure that Rules & Guidelines have been followed before approval. We aim to do this within 24 hours, but may take longer at busy times. Adverts not following guidelines will not be approved. 

Adverts requiring payment will not be approved until payment has been received. The price list can be see on the submission page & guidelines, but if you are unsure please use the Payment Calculator. You can also pay to upgrade & feature a free ad. 

Unpaid adverts are deleted after two days but the details & photos are saved. If you would still like to continue, pay for the original advert & we will post a replacement for you. The new advert will have a new number & go back to the top. Your new advert details will be sent by Email.

To pay, go to www.nfed.co.uk/shop/classifieds.htm or use the link in your original Advert Details Email.

We understand that many people make their own hay or haylage & wish to sale the surplus. If this is genuinely the case, the advert may be classed as a private sale & approved without payment at the administrator’s discretion.

Hay, Haylage & Straw being regularly advertised on the NFED or elsewhere, offering delivery or different choices will be classed as trade. Trade adverts will only be approved without payment if the advertiser has a current Standard Directory listing in the Hay Straw & Bedding category.

Questions & Advice
The classifieds are for buying and selling adverts only, general questions, advice or recommendations wanted will not be accepted. If you are looking for any kind of service, please look in the Services Directory section.

Availability
Animals or items must be available to NFED users & not entered in auctions elsewhere. NFED users rightly expect the item to be available & to be able to make enquiries or offers through the NFED without being redirected to a different website for further information or to bid. Including links or sending viewers to items advertised on other websites is not permitted.

Competition
We do want to provide a free service for low value ads, but this does rely entirely on sufficient paid ads to keep the business viable. Therefore, anyone involved with, promoting, canvassing, administrating a website, social media group or page offering a similar service, allowing advertising or in competition with the NFED and putting the business at risk, is not eligible for free advertising.

Cheating the System & Abuse
We really do want to allow free ads for genuine, honest advertisers but the system is open to abuse, so does relies on the honesty of our advertisers to make it work properly & fair for everyone. Anyone found to be deliberately cheating the system, using multiple identities to get around usage limits, acting, advertising or trading dishonestly, regularly ignoring guidelines, being abusive or causing problems in any way whatsoever will no longer be eligible for free adverts. Click Here for more.

Anyone suspected of deliberately abusing or attempting to cheat the system, acting, advertising or trading dishonestly, regularly ignoring guidelines, causing problems, spamming, canvassing advertisers, being abusive to other NFED users or generally disparaging the site in any way whatsoever will no longer be eligible for free adverts & may have all adverts rejected.

Adverts submitted from advertisers either under investigation or having unresolved complaints against them will not be accepted. The administrator’s decision is final & we reserve the right to refuse adverts without explanation as this may affect any ongoing police or trading standards investigation.
