  • the three fields allow for any combination of price required
  • price on call can also be turned on to indicate the user will need to call you to obtain a quote or price
  • don’t enter the $ for the price field, your ad will not save!
  • if advertising a product then the price field may be the price for the product, for example, price $: 44, after price label: each, this will display $44 each
  • if advertising a range of services or products, for example, price: 22, before price label: Starting from, this will display Starting from $22
  • both before and after price labels can be used, for example, price: 22, before price label: From, after price label: month, this will display From $22 / month
  • don’t enter the per symbol ( / ), it is inserted automatically if you choose an after price label
