OVERVIEW

A listing on Chili Kuti Africa provides the advertiser with:

  • A details page (Mini Web Site)
  • A Bookings Page (Optional but FREE OF CHARGE)
  • A Payments facility (Optional at a 5% Commission)
  • Access via Mobile App as well as Web Site
  • Preferential listing on our interactive maps.

Whereas Chili Kuti is happy to set up these listings on your behalf, we allow our Advertisers to maintain these Adverts/Listings themselves.

This means that our Advertisers are able to alter the adverts as often as they wish from their own PC – 24/7/365

In effect  our Advertisers can easily tailor the listings to reflect one time offerings, change rates, add in special offers and publish seasonal messages – anything they may want. Change the advert to reflect your immediate needs and wants as often as you want – all for NO extra charge.

ALL FOR LESS THAN THE COST OF A QUARTER PAGE PRINTED ADVERT!

 

See our Rates card.

 We do NOT insist on long term contracts. Chili Kuti is very much a “pay as you go” facility. If at any stage you wish to stop advertising, simply stop paying – simple as that!

HOWEVER, our offer to hold our Pre-Launch Prices firm for the first year only applies to advertisers who advertise and pay on an uninterrupted basis.

In other words, should you run adverts from now until January 2019 they will all be at Pre-Launch rates. If you stop your advert in February and then start again in March it will be at normal rates.

REQUIREMENTS

 Nothing Fancy! Nothing technical!  No layout artists needed. No expensive formats.

Just simple stuff you can get from your phone and your PC.

If you wish us to place the advert on your behalf, we will provide you with a template into which you may enter all your details. Also provide us with your pictures and logos in GIF, JPG or PNG format.

We will do the rest.

Alternatively, you may simply register on Chili Kuti as a user (Thus seeing what we offer to all our free users), go to our accommodation section, register your business and fill in the details yourself. It really is that simple.

In both cases your advert will go live the moment payment is received.

Items can only be listed for sale etc. from your PC by accessing our web site  although members/users can fully access your information and even make bookings and payments from their mobile devices

** Please see our Advertising Guidelines for a list of what is and isn’t allowed. It’s mostly common sense.

*** We reserve the sole right to decide what is and what is not commercial

 

Description and Features

We have two basic sections – Buying and Selling.

The Buying is, as expected, the place where members go to look at the ads placed.

The Selling Section has several categories:

  • Goods offered
  • Goods Required
  • Services offered
  • Services Required.

In each case there are multiple categories available.

Choose your category, write your description, enter your contact details and price.

If you like, upload some pics and you are ready to go.

Very simple and, in most cases, FREE.

 

Requirements

Just have the above information at hand when going into the “Selling” Section.

  Items can only be listed for sale etc. from your PC by accessing our web site even though Buyers can access the Ads from PC and/or Mobile devices.
