Shops can now accept card payments

Adverts Shops now have the ability to accept credit and debit card payments on their ads. By connecting a Stripe account, shops will be able to instantly start accepting card payments, and have the money transferred directly to their bank account.

connect_to_stripe_blog

For online retailers, a simple yet powerful checkout process is crucial to success, and as an Adverts Shop, we take care of that process for you. Today we are happy to announce a great enhancement of this process which will make it faster and easier for people to make purchases.

Many Adverts.ie members have card details securely stored with Stripe which they use across Adverts.ie for buying credits, bumps, or paying success fees. Now with that same payment infrastructure they can use their cards for purchasing from shops too. Any shop with a connected Stripe account will automatically have an option to ‘pay by card’ enabled on all their active ads.

5 Alternative Ways To Get Fit

Have you started your healthy buzz for your New Year resolutions? If you’re finding it a bit of a struggle trying to get to the gym, then try an alternative type of exercise – as long as you’re moving that’s good enough for us.

1. Hiking

There’s nothing more refreshing than a country walk, so step it up a notch and get ascending some bigger hills. Try the hike around Glendalough or there’s clubs such as the Irish Ramblers you can join if you need a little encouragement and guidance. From poles, boots and baby carriers, there’s plenty of stuff to get you started on the site.

2. Hula hooping

Yes, we’re talking good old fashioned, rotating hips, trying to keep the hoop spinning type of hula hooping. However, there’s so much more you can learn than that, and you’ll get abs of steel as well as having fun.

4. Rock climbing

This is an amazing type of exercise for an all over body work out. Women are also said to be the best type of rock climbers because they use skill over strength – so get to it ladies!

There’s over 26,000 items in our Sport & Fitness category for you to choose from but if you’re looking to do your exercise in the comfort of your own home, check out these ideas to get you fitter faster!

10 things you need to pack when going Skiing

If you’re lucky enough to be going skiing this season, then you’ll need all the right gear to keep you happy on the slopes. We’re currently offering FREE LISTINGS in the Ski & Snowboard category all this week so you can sell your old stuff to buy some new gear for your next trip. Here’s our essential guide to packing for that snowy get away!

1. Jacket

It’s always better to invest in a good jacket and it’ll last you for years to come. Get one with good number of pockets for ease of access to your phone/music/gloves etc.

MjcxZjExNDZhNTZmNTJjMjYyMTExZjczMTA3OGQ5Zjir60FNE1rf74vFOzTZdLK0aHR0cDovL21lZGlhLmFkc2ltZy5jb20vMWQ5ZjlhZjhkMjAyMDcwNDRmNTYyNDg4ZTcxYTdiMDI4MjUwYmUxMzg3MWIyZDc1MGJiMzAzZWRkMWEwMTQ5OS5qcGd8Mzkzf

2. Salopettes

Salopettes or ski pants are what’s going to keep your derrière dry if you fall, so buy a waterproof pair. You can wear leggings/long johns underneath for extra warmth.

3. Thermals

Thermals are a must when going skiing, it’s all about layering. Get yourself some good base layers and a couple of jumper/fleeces for extra warmth.

4. Goggles

Good goggles will help you see clearly without the wind or sun reflecting off the snow and blinding you. Get ones with a polarised lens so you’ll be able to see definition in the snow better.

Mjk2MzYxOWFlMWM1NGM0N2RhMDVkYTJlYmMxZDhlMDGSUF88rAjs56w2Ebdl9d7MaHR0cDovL21lZGlhLmFkc2ltZy5jb20vNmJmM2ZmMGRkZGI3M2Q3Y2QxMWI2MDY0N2U2ZWQzODQwYTNkYzhkZjFhNzg5MzU0ZGRkYTAzMDVmNzViNzM2My5qcGd8fDI5NHx8fHx8aH

5. Helmet

A very important part of your kit is a helmet. If you fall and someone comes flying towards you, it’ll protect you from getting a ski in the head.

6. Snow Boots

Great for comfort and ease of trudging around in the snow when you remove your uncomfortable ski boots.

7. Boots & Board/Skis

These aren’t a necessity if you’re just starting out but if you’re planning to make ski trips a regular occurrence then it’s worth the investment.

8. Rucksack

Great for carrying some water, sun cream, camera, extra thermals – anything you need for a day on the mountain.

MDNiMDNjYWU1MTc2YzgxOWJkY2I0ZjU0ZGEzZTAxYTH2483lUFpUTcLCXwD3Wt_HaHR0cDovL21lZGlhLmFkc2ltZy5jb20vYzM0OGE0Zjc2Y2U3OWNlYzZmNzQ3MGJlYjEyMjgwNWEwNzcyMzM3N2U2ZjZlMmM4YmI2MWVhM2Q0NTIyNDUzYi5qcGd8fDI5NHx8fHx8aH

9. Gloves

Having a decent pair of gloves is a must – your hands are the first thing to get cold so you need them insulated well.

YmU1ZGZlZDBhNzI3MmFjMDZiNTdlYjc2MmNiMjgwNzfR2dM5tYPEk64qcXkXtMHiaHR0cDovL21lZGlhLmFkc2ltZy5jb20vYTFlODhkOGQzYzY4MDIyODFjNDkxMzdiNjQwODlhZWZmYjdmYjcyNzZlNDI3MmEyZWZhZTQ2YTJjOGI2MjU2NS5qcGd8fDI5NHx8fHx8aH

10. Socks

Keep your piggies extra warm with thick ski socks – there’s nothing worse when your toes hurt that they’re so cold!

OGQ5YjZmMWEyZjE2MzViMTBiZWRiN2Q3ZDIzNDgxOWV0q8eokAJEZ8mCCHt3IJgVaHR0cDovL21lZGlhLmFkc2ltZy5jb20vNGI3ZTc5NDgzZGQ0YTFhMjAxYTFlYjRlY2VlYzhlNzYxNzkwY2NmYmZiYzAyMGZjNzQ5MDM0MjM3MmMyMTgxZC5qcGd8fDI5NHx8fHx8aH

 

So that’s it, bring all of the above with you and you’ll be comfortable and able for the mountain all day long.

Enjoy!

adverts_cars_logo_blog

Today we are excited to announce the release of our brand new Adverts Cars app for both Android and iOS.

android_cars_blog2

Adverts.ie has one of Ireland’s biggest collection of new and used cars for sale, and now we have created a separate app for just that. By stripping out all the rest of the categories, Adverts Cars provides a fast and easy way to place an ad, or to browse our huge database of cars, from both dealers and private sellers.

ios_cars_blog2

Price Guide (iOS)

Some features include…

Price Guide
Using the Adverts Cars app, you can search for up to date information and price history on any make or model in our database. This information can be used to help evaluate purchase options, or to price your own car for sale.

Search alerts
You can set up search alerts to notify you as soon as any particular car that you are interested in is listed. Do you have your heart set on a Bentley Continental, with less than 30,000 kms, and for under €5,000? Set up an alert! If one ever shows up, you’ll be the first to know.

Saved searches
Engine size, year, mileage, price, location, even colour. Refine a search to be however detailed you want, and then save it for quick access again later.

Security
Buying from strangers shouldn’t have to be scary. Buyers and sellers on Adverts Cars have profiles with history and feedback ratings from other users on previous transactions across Adverts.ie.

Watchlist
See a car you like? Add it to your watchlist, where you can get quick access to it again, and be notified of any price changes or updates to the ad.


Place an ad
The fastest way to place a car ad is using the Adverts Cars app. Take photos, auto-populate all your car details by using our registration look-up, and have your ad live in no time. You can also use the Price Guide to help you settle on an asking price, and if you don’t sell it, we won’t even charge you for the ad.

Quick communication
Sellers interested in your ad have the option to phone you directly from the app, or by sending you a private message, which makes it easy to have quick communication with any interested parties.

While we are excited to see this first version of Adverts Cars be released, we are already looking forward to v2, and will continue to improve the experience of buying or selling a car. Please send any feedback into support@adverts.ie

Enjoy
