How do I create an account?

How do I create an account?

You can sign up by clicking ‘Post an Ad’ on our home page. Either create a new account using your email address, or use your Facebook or Google+ to log in.
We’ll email you to ask you to verify that you’re the owner of the email address. Just click the link in the email and you’ll be set up and ready to sell.
You can’t change the email address you register with. So make sure you use your current one. If you ever want to change it, you’ll need to create a new account. You’ll be able to choose another email to be contacted on though.
The benefits of registering
You can browse through ads and contact people on Gumtree even if you don’t register. Though if you do, you’ll be able to:
  • save ads you like the look of
  • get messages from people through your account
  • set a search you run often 
If you’re looking for something in particular, we’ll email you to tell you someone’s posted one.
Creating a business account
If you’re a retailer or use the site as part of your business, you can register with a business account.
Forgotten your password?
First, make sure you’re not putting in any rogue spaces or capital letters (check caps lock). If you’re still stuck, ask to reset your password at the login screen. We’ll send you an email with a few steps to follow.
