Buying and Selling with Abuy

The menu bar – that's the blue horizontal line at the top of each page – now includes a sizzling new feature, known as Abuy, the Audlem Online buy/sell feature. This allows readers to advertise items for sale, wanted or available for freecycle.

A list of such items will appear if the buy/sell entry on the top menu bar is clicked. Then clicking on any individual entry brings up more details about the item, together with a button to click to request further details from the original advertiser.

You can find out much more by clicking on the page and then on 'New users are advised to read more by clicking here' at the top of the page.

The e-mail addresses or telephone numbers of those placing or responding to the advertisements are not displayed. The webteam will moderate advertisements entered on the site, primarily to try to stop Abuy being hi-jacked by traders or businesses.

We would be delighted if people would try to use this new feature and let us know how successful it turns out to be, or how it might be improved. Items are already being advertised ranging from a car to a rabbit hutch and student bedding.

We received the following message last night, and this resulted from a few 'For Sale' items we published before Abuy was launched on Monday: "Just to let you know I sold the guitar and kit you kindly put on the website, just a few doors down from me ironically.

"Glad to see the buy/sell is up and running and think it is a great idea and presumably most items will be local. Many thanks. Debbie"
