Placing and Paying for Advertisements

Subject to this Agreement, users can place advertisements for properties for sale/rent and other related services on propertysteps.ie by following the step by step instructions on the homepage. During the process of placing an advertisement on this site, the user will be asked to answer a number of questions to complete registration. The information provided by the user during the registration process is subject to the Terms and Conditions of our Privacy Policy.

Once the user has completed the process of submitting an advertisement, we will send an email confirming receipt of the order. This email does not constitute an acceptance of the order or a guarantee of placing an ad on this site. Publication of the advertisement on propertysteps.ie is subject to the payment of a fee (the "Fee"). The Fee is set out on this site or by your account manager and clearly displayed in the course of a user offering to place an ad. The order for posting the ad will not be accepted and an agreement will not be concluded between both parties until payment of the Fee has been received by us. By submitting an advertisement to us, you are deemed to have agreed to this.

The Fee may be paid by different methods, including but not limited to payment by telephone. In the event that a user makes a payment by telephone for the purpose of placing an ad, the user will receive an activation code which must be used to complete the ad. The cost of this service is charged to the user's telephone bill. This means that the cost of the service is the same irrespective of the amount of time taken to use the activation code. The maximum rate that we can charge as our Fee via telephone payment is €3. The telecom company we use to provide this service is regulated by ComReg. There are no recurring charges or hidden fees.Estate agent fees will be outlined by thier account manager.

We are not responsible for the payment services provided by the user's telephone company/ network service provider and users should separately review and confirm that they are agreeable to their terms and separate charges prior to using our service.

Ads placed on propertysteps.ie will stay posted and accessible for viewing by users for a period of three months. As ads are submitted they are placed at the top of a list but gradually slide down the list as newer ads come online. At any stage during the period when an ad is posted, the advertiser can 'bump up' their ad to place it back at the top of the list again. The process for 'bumping up' an ad is the same as the process for placing or turning on an ad except that the advertiser does not have to rewrite the ad or upload pictures again. The cost of 'bumping up' an ad if you are a private advertiser is the same as placing an ad and the method of payment if by phone is the same as described above. When an ad is bumped up it's posting will be extended for another period of Three months from the time of its bumping up.

After a period of three months all ads placed on propertysteps.ie will 'go to sleep' or disappear from view on this site if they have not already been bumped up or turned off. The advertiser will be notified of the change in status prior to it happening and will be offered the opportunity to bump up their ad to keep it live.For estate agents this time period is one month. Once an ad has been switched off, whether by instruction or by expiration, it remains dormant in the users account and will remain there invisible to the public until it is switched back on again by the user. If the user wishes to delete their ad completely from our system, they can do so by putting this in writing to admin@propertysteps.ie.

During the period when an ad is posted on propertysteps.ie an advertiser may wish to deactivate or cancel their ad before it expires. This can be done by 'turning off' their ad, following a similar process to bumping up an ad with the cost and payment method remaining the same.

'Turning on' an ad has the same meaning as 'posting' on a website.

'Turning off' an ad means removing it from public view but keeping it dormant within the user's account.

Deleting an ad means removing it completely from the User's account and the servers of propertysteps.ie.

Refund Policy:

Advertisements submitted to propertysteps.ie will be turned on (activated), bumped up or turned off once payment has been received for each instruction but once turned on, bumped up or turned off, the instruction cannot be cancelled or withdrawn.

As with any Premium service, once a user or any other person enters the activation code onto Propertysteps.ie as a payment method, they will be charged for this and this charge cannot be refunded.
