New name…

but an even better local service

We’ve joined forces with our big brother from the South… the Friday-Ad. As part of this we’ve got a brand new name, but more importantly, buyers in the South West now get to browse even more local bargains. And if you’re selling, you’ll get an even better response!

Why has Trade-It joined forces with Friday-Ad?

Friday-Ad is just as popular across the rest of the UK as Trade-It was within Bristol and the South. We’re run by the same people, so we decided to join forces and bring these two sites together to create one bigger and better marketplace for you. We’ll be keeping our focus on being local, so not only will you be able to see a lot more choice in your local area, but you’ll also be able to tap into all the other bargains on Friday-Ad from further afield.

How does this benefit me?

You’ll now be given more variety when buying and more response when selling! Friday-Ad has loads more ads, so you’ll have more choice of cars, pets, services, jobs and all wonder of bargains to browse locally, as well as the added option of searching further away.
If you’re selling something, you’ll benefit from the extra 2 million monthly Friday-Ad users who will be able to see your ads.
In simple terms, it’s really only the logo and colour that’s changed, so your experience of buying and selling with Friday-Ad will be just as easy as it was on Trade-It.
With just one site, we’ll have more time to focus on bringing you even better features for buying and selling and providing you a better all-round service.

What is Friday-Ad

The hugely popular Friday-Ad launched in Sussex in 1974, and, believe it or not, it was the UK’s first free classifieds paper, helping people buy and sell in their local area. In the web boom in the late 1990s Friday-Ad soon developed into one of the UK’s leading sites for buying and selling. Today over 15,000 new items and ads are placed on the Friday-Ad every week, and it attracts a total of 25 million visitors every year.

Quite a cool partner for Trade-It eh?
