Submitted a couple of ads on Sunday and I cant find either using the new search ... Although I can find the skyline on the old ads I can't find the VXR on either..

810216 and 810301

The status says they are "live" and I have pressed every button I can to "send live" but still no joy.

??

I'm having similar issues

809238
809231
+ others

Adverts say 'live' but when I view live it says "This advert is not publicly available at this time"

What am I doing wrong??
I added them at the weekend and received advert pending emails, how long do they take to go live?

The adverts you have added are under a dealer account, so that requires authorisation from our dealer team to get make your account live, then all your ads will go live.

I will pass on your details and they will pick this up in the morning.

Thanks, if you could it'd be much appreciated, it's very frustrating when they say live!!

Still nothing.... frown

Do they have a direct email? I tried classifieds@pistonheads.com on Monday and had no reply....

What do they need to do to confirm my account??

Will, I'd suggest either clicking "report" & add a comment, or dropping one of the techies a pm?

Thanks, any idea who the techies are?

They seem to be able to sort private ads quickly, but not trade ads??

But try Matt Dell

I would imagine any of them would be happy to help?

Normally yes, but apparently, as above, it's an issue for the "Trade team" whoever they may be?

I was promised calls back from them last time the classifieds changed and they never called back frown

Thanks for you help though smile I'm getting very frustrated, especially with private ads being sorted so quickly

Thanks, to be honest I'm at a bit of a loss as to who I should contact?
You said I must contact sales@pistonheads, any idea why this isn't mentioned anywhere??

I would have thought on the trade log in page there should be the correct contact info for PH trade?
It says to email classifieds@pistonheads, which I had done with zero response....
Not great when I'm sure you guys are trying to get more paying trade clients?

Maybe something to change for the future, so emails are getting to the people who can make changes?
Sorry, I have no idea how the system behind it all works, just that for some reason my ads aren't being published!

Stuart kindly called me a coupe of hours ago and said he'd get someone to look into it.

I'm crossing my fingers that maybe by the end of the day I'll have my adverts live......

I'm pleased someone has been in touch.

And it says Sales@ on the http://www.pistonheads.com/contact/ contact page. under the Dealer link.

I'll have a look into the classifieds@pistonheads.com issue...

ETA: where did you see the classifides@ email address because I can't find it anywhere on the site?

Ah, just checked and it's the "adverts@pistonheads" emails which I've replied to without any response frown

This is the email I got:

From: "adverts@pistonheads.com" <adverts@pistonheads.com>
To: willblackhamlotus
Sent: Saturday, 29 September 2012, 19:20
Subject: PistonHeads: Advert Pending Approval: Lotus Elise S1 111S - Very Low Mileage - Aluminium Silver (809238)

I would have thought approval should not take 3 days?!?

Ahh right. that answers something. The adverts is a catch all email address and dealer issues should have been forwarded onto the dealer team to deal with. Maybe we need to have a look at the copy of that email.
