South ­Africa's Vodacom has launched a mobile and fixed Internet classifieds adverts service that will be available to all South African cellphone and Internet users.
LiveAds provides a consumer-to-consumer and business-to-consumer classifieds service that enables users to post listings, find listings and set alerts directly from their cellphone or PC. LiveAds will also allow consumers to browse listings based on their geographic location.

Shameel Joosub, managing director from Vodacom South Africa says that LiveAds will be hosted on both a mobile and fixed Internet website and will be accessible to all cellphone users which have a WAP-enabled cellphone or access to the Internet from a PC.

"LiveAds enable users with WAP-enabled cellphones to have instant access to a classifieds listing-service. Users will be able to advertise anything from home appliances through to properties for sale. They can also find jobs or place notices on births or marriages."

LiveAds will initially provide free listings in all categories and there will be no limit to the number of free ads a person or business can post.

Users are encouraged to take advantage of the limited 'free-to-list' launch offer. It is expected that LiveAds will eventually charge for listings posted in the Jobs, Motor and Property sections. However the majority of categories will remain 'free-to-list' sections.
