I need a program that will post my adverts? onto The Gumtree website ([[url removed, login to view]])? regularly, the adverts are free to advertise but you have to keep posting them to get them to remain at the top of the list. Therefore I need a program that posts different adverts for me? on a set timer.
I need a program that I can enter my data & images into for the adverts and every 45-60 min it posts a new advert using the stored data & images that I have entered, this will then place the advert back to the top of the list and giving me a new reference number every time. The reason a new reference number is needed every time is because The Gumtree recognises used? ref. numbers and? wont let the same reference number/advert be posted again. The program should have the option to delete the old adverts as the new one is created, so there are not to many adverts posted? on The Gumtree. I also need it to work with several adverts, so I can post different adverts up at the same time regularly.

The 3 sections I advistise in are: on The Gumtree website choose city (London): 1. Under Post an Ad, Flatshare & houseshare, Offered, North of the river, Double room. 2. Post an Ad, Flatshare & houseshare, short term. 3. Post an Ad, Flats & Houses for Rent, Offered, Private Landlord, North of the River, Studios& Bedsits. Link: [url removed, login to view] Basically what I need is a program that allows me to be able to post my adverts on the website at set time intervals, say 45-60 min or a different time if need be. Every time you post an advert it gives you a reference number. I have tried a program that goes in to edit the ad using the reference number and posts it again which would put it back to the top of the advertising list but it doesnt work because I think the website recognises the reference number and will not allow this. A solution I came up with was to set up one interface/ or something else that is identical to the posting page of gumtree, I store my data/pics somewhere and then we set a timer to then use this info to post new ads according to what we set on the timer. The other thing was I post up to 8 adverts on average at a time, so I would need it to work with several different ads. Also another thing Im not sure about is if the adverts are exactly the same every time it posts then the website can detect that and will delete the ads, therefore It might have to have a fuction that deletes the old advert after a set time or when it posts another ad? But this is my idea, not sure if you are familiar with how gumtree works, if you can come up with another way to do what I need done then I dont mind as long as it works. I am willing to pay between $300-400 & up to $600-700 for added features. At the moment we are just looking to get the ads posting up, added features will be things like extras that come up along the way, that I come up with or the programmer comes up with to improve the app. also having a database or something else where we can save all our ads and pics which can be edited at anytime, then with a click of a button we can use these ads with the posting program or if they are intergrated even better. Another feature would be an advanced interface which has everything we need. But If we were to go ahead we would have to agree on the intial price for what will be done then add additional costs for extras that will improve the program. Have a look at the posting process on gumtree uk website, post an advert [url removed, login to view], and see if you can come up with a way to post this info every 45-60 mins without gumtree deleting the advert. Let me know what you think? Regards John
