Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Who runs YardSalesPittsburgh.com
Chris Cagle started YardSalesPittsburgh.com as a side project back in the summer of 2010. There was no easy place to find or list local Western PA yard sales, so we built one.
Q. What does it cost to post a yard/garage/estate/rummage sale?
It is completely free to post a sale on YardSalesPittsburgh.com. We do offer a 'Featured Listing' for a minimal price that allows your sale to be shown in front of more site visitors than a normal non-Featured sale listing.
Q. My sale is already listed here, but I didn't add it. Where did it come from?
On occasion, the administrators at YSP will post yard sales that havent been added to this site yet. If you want to change something, just email us and we will switch the sale over to your account.
Q. I am having trouble buying a "Featured Listing"
We are sorry to hear that. Please email us and let us know what the problem is and we can get things cleared up right away.
Q. What are the benefits of a "Featured Listing"
When you purchase a Featured Listing, you are instantly putting that sale in front of many more site visitors than a normal non-featured sale. We have all the benefits listed when you click the 'Feature This Sale' button when viewing your sale.
Q. How do I unsubscribe from your daily emails?
We use a service called FeedBurner from Google to send out our daily update emails. Click the unsubscribe link within them to remove yourself from the list.
Q. Is my personal information safe?
Absolutely. We take great pride in each and every member we have, and would never ever sell your information to anyone.
Q. What are YSP Credits?
We give you YSP Credits for certain actions you perform on our site like posting sales, Facebook Likes, etc. These credits can then be used to purchase 'Featured Listings' or promotional schwag in the future.
