What are the Business Services policies?

The 'Business Services' sections are for businesses and commercial entities to submit postings advertising their services and not their products.


If you appear to be trading in what Gumtree classifies as a commercial or business like capacity then you must make use of the Business Services category to advertise your business (and not products), and post singular and unique items for sale individually in an appropriate category.


All massage services ads on Gumtree must:

  • have no photos (business logos are fine)
  • state: "not a sexual service"
  • state professional qualifications (accreditation, certificates, diplomas, work history etc). You must include the level of the qualification, the awarding body/where it was achieved
  • must not specify unnecessary details (such as body type, race, age, sexual orientation/preference etc)
  • state the location of where the service is offered (we do not allow ads for "traveling" massage services).

* Please also note ads that are for "Tantra/Tantric massage" are not allowed on Gumtree.


We don't allow duplicate ads (multiple ads advertising the same company's services). Duplicate ads are extremely frustrating to our users, as they bring no value to the categories in which they appear. Please post no more than one ad advertising your services. The repeated posting of multiple, duplicate ads may lead to a complete deletion of ALL of your ads and restriction of your use of Gumtree.


Ads offering financial services (such as offering loans) must use a valid business email address and contain a valid business landline number.


Ensure your advertisement isn't breaching any applicable laws. It is the responsibility of the advertiser before posting an ad on Gumtree that content advertised adheres to Gumtree Posting Policies as well as applicable laws. As a condition of your use of Gumtree specified under our Terms of Use, you agree that you will not violate any laws.
