Advertisers are able to see a preview of the printed version of their advert since there are a are comfortable text editor and a preview in real time.

Navigation and user-friendlyness are key. Therefore the advertising works in three simple steps:

  • Enter the text of the advert with WYSIWYG editor and hyphenation

  • Confirm the advert and calculate the price

  • Pay the advert with credit or Postfinance card

After this transaction, the user receives a confirmation email with a preview of his advert and the bill.
