Rules of Advertising

 

Private ad

Private classified ads on iklanstreet.com are for individuals who have the right to enter into a legal contract and do not intend to profit from wholesale.

Professional ad

Professional classified ads on iklanstreet.com are for professional sellers who do not operate a registered company. Iklanstreet.com reserves the right to decide whether an ad is a Professional ad.

Company ad

Company classified ads on Iklanstreet.com are for registered companies. Iklanstreet.com reserves the right to decide whether an ad is a Company ad.

Advertise for real, and only for yourself

Ads listed for pure marketing purposes without offering any concrete goods, jobs or services are not allowed. You should place your own ads and not place ads on behalf of someone else.

Ad title

Your ad title should briefly describe what is being advertised, and should not contain prices, salaries, promotional words, contact details or unnecessary search words. Example of promotional words include “promotion”, “best deal”, “best offer”, and “discount”.

Ad description

Your ad description should describe what is being advertised. It should not be copied from other advertisers (this is illegal under copyright laws). It should also not contain unnecessary search words, offensive remarks, or links to other auction/classifieds/marketplace sites. Unnecessary search words are words that do not directly refer to the item itself, but rather refer to closely related items. For example, ads for Nike shoes should not contain the words “Adidas”, “Reebok”, or “Puma”.

Ad language

Only ads in English and Bahasa Malaysia are allowed.

Ad category

You should place your ad in the category that best describes what is being advertised.

No multiple items in 1 ad

You should only advertise 1 unique item in each ad.

No duplicates

You should not place the same ad more than once. If you wish to advertise the same item again, please delete your previous ad before you insert a new ad of the same item. Posting the same ad using a different name or email is also not allowed.

Links

You can place links that are relevant to your ad in the ad text description. However, you cannot place links to another auction, classifieds, or marketplace site.

Images

You should add images that are relevant to your ad. Company logos should not be used as images except for the “Services”, “Jobs” and “Businesses for Sale” categories.

An image is not suitable if it:

  • Was taken by another advertiser, and is being reused without their consent (this is illegal under copyright laws)
  • Contains contact details (phone, email, links, Facebook, or any other personal info)
  • Contains images of children
  • Contains promotional words
  • Contains an advertiser’s own watermark of contact details and price
  • Contains a watermark of a company logo placed in the centre or any of the four corners of the image; or covering more than 30% of the image
  • Is a collage, i.e. includes multiple images edited into the same image
  • Is a stock photo
  • Is downloaded from the iklanstreet.com website
  • Is not in JPEG or PNG format
  • Is reused from any other ad on Iklanstreet.com
  • Is too small or unclear, or is irrelevant
  • Could be perceived to be offensive or provocative in nature, for example, images of live models for lingerie products

 

Original items

Pirated goods and forged items, including fake “luxury” bags, “branded” clothes and gears, CD/VCD/DVDs, and computer/game-console software are not allowed. All items advertised must be original; we suggest that you include images of the necessary document(s) in the ad to prove the authenticity of the item.

Realistic offers

You should provide the actual selling price of your item in your ad, except for ads under the “Jobs” and “Services”categories. Iklanstreet.com reserves the right to refuse unrealistic selling prices which we do not think are the actual full price of your item (strictly no instalments, down-payments or trade-in prices).

Bidding and auctions

We do not accept any ads related to auction or bidding. We only accept ads with actual prices.

Rules concerning pets and animals

Animals traded on Iklanstreet.com must follow the Wildlife Protection Act of Malaysia 1972, the Fisheries Act 1985, and CITES.

Offensive content

Ads or images that could be perceived as offensive to ethnic groups, individuals, or public figures are not allowed.
