Creating an account with Gumtree is fast and free, but must be done on our website.  With only one set of login details to remember, posting ads will be faster.  You'll also be able to manage your ads in one place. 

Please note that your email address becomes your unique login and as such we cannot update your login when you change your email address.  This would require a new login.  However you can use different contact email addresses on the ads that you place.

At a glance, you can tell which ads are expiring, and you'll be able to take action, such as editing or deleting your ad, more easily.

If you regularly post a lot of housing or job ads on Gumtree, a business account might be a better option for you.  To find out more visit our business section.
