By now most of you reading this post have realized that the new Junk Mail website was launched on last week Wednesday (the 25th of July 2012). The Junk Mail website (as well as the Junk Mail blog) now sports a fresh look and feel, and some new features (like user accounts and advert management) that have also been introduced for an improved user experience.
Today we’re focusing on some category and region changes that have been implemented on the new Junk Mail website over the last week. We trust that you will find this information useful and that it will enhance your experience on the new Junk Mail website.
No new categories have been added, but there have been quite a few name changes on categories. Descriptions have been changed. You are now able to choose the category for the item that you’re advertising more easily, and if you’re browsing the Junk Mail website you should find your way to the item that you’re looking to buy with less effort than before.
Take note of the following category changes on Junk Mail:
- In the Motoring section: The ‘Motorcycling’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Motorcycling and Scooters‘ and the ‘Other Spares and Accessories’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Spares and Accessories‘ . The latter is the perfect category to advertise any vehicle spares that you are looking to sell in. The spares sections for each vehicle make category on Junk Mail Online has been discontinued.
- In the Hi-Tech section: The ‘DVD Players’ category’s name has been changed to ‘DVD Player and Bluray‘ and the ‘CD & Record Players’ category’s name has been changed to ‘CD Players and Turntables‘.
- In the Computers section: The ‘Laptops & Notebooks’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Laptops, Notebooks and Tablets‘ and the ‘Other Computer Hardware’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Computer Hardware and Printers‘.
- In the Leisure section: The ‘DVDs’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Movies and DVDs‘ , the ‘Other Collector’s Items’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Collector’s Items‘, the ‘Electronics’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Electronic Hobbyists‘ and the ‘Cameras’ category’s name has been changed to ‘Film Cameras‘.
We trust that you find these category name changes useful. It’s more descriptive for the Junk Mail user who’s looking to buy and item and it also beneficial to the advertise who wants his item advertised in the correct category.
More great news for regular users of Junk Mail is that all 9 South African provinces are now represented on the Junk Mail website. You can access the regions by either selecting them in the search bar (on the top of each page on the website) when you’re searching for an item or browsing via the region icon (which is also on top of each page on the website). See the screenshot below for locations of these region changing options on the Junk Mail website.
Residents in Gauteng, the Western Cape, Kwazulu-Natal, the Eastern Cape, the Free State, Limpopo, Mpumalanga, the Northern Cape and North West will now be able to browse for classifieds on their province. Once you are browsing your province’s classifieds you can actually filter through the search results to your town in the province via the facets on the left hand side. Besides this there are also shortcuts for classifieds in South Africa’s four biggest cities: Johannesburg,Pretoria, Durban and Cape Town.
