Benefiting from gumtree

I’m business minded but haven’t started yet, gumtree is definitely going to make it easier for me because I’ve been browsing through the app, looking for more information and I realised that I will be able to buy and sell products or any other items at my convenience.
Also, I can post on social media to advertise my business with no charges and I’m allowed to determine the price range of my products.
I’m ready to start enjoying benefits of gumtree immediately when I’m done creating an account. For now I only got an app

I love gumtree, I have bought and sold on gumtree and will continue to do how. With that said work on the glitches, when upload details for a sale there are so glitches when inputing the price, takes too long, same thing happens with contact details.
Please work on that.
Also please make certain details compulsory like contact and price.
Also please offer categories for items sold, such as year or model, it makes it easier as a buyer to know if the product is firsts generation or third or whatever the case maybe.
