What is the Category Gallery?
Gumtree's Category Gallery is the section on the ad pages where your ad can be displayed for several days. More people read and reply to these ads because of their prominent position at the top of the ad pages. If you have applied the Category Gallery feature to your ad, your ad will be displayed in the Category Gallery section of the category you selected for your ad.
What are the benefits of being in the Category Gallery?
Ads in the Category Gallery get more visitors and more replies than other ads on Gumtree because of their prominent position at the top of the ad pages. This helps you sell an item quicker, get more exposure for your service, and so on. Ads in the Category Gallery are advertised nationally, meaning that users who are not searching in your area, but viewing the category your ad is posted in, will also be able to see your ad. As well, your ad will continue to appear within the regular category and search listings, giving your ad even more exposure.

The Category Gallery only shows a few ads at a time. If there are more ads than can be displayed, you can refresh the page or click an arrow to the right of the ads to see more ads.

What is the difference between Category Gallery and Top Ads?
Top Ads are ads where the posters have paid a fee so that the ad would be placed in the prominent Top Ads section for a period of a few days. Category Gallery Ads are ads where the posters have also paid a fee, but where the ad is displayed very prominently at the top of the category page, above the Top ad section.
