The service of Milanuncios consists in the insertion of ads, created by the users of the website, in the portal milanuncios.com. This way Milanuncios helps to connect advertisers with those interested in the ad.
So far, the company has only focused on the Spanish market.
Milanuncios is divided into 16 different sections:
- Real Estate
- House and Garden
- Image and Sound
- Books and Education
The posting of ads on the website is completely free of charge both for individuals and for professionals/companies. There is no limit as to how many ads can be posted as long as the Terms and conditions are being respected.
Milanuncios' most important section is Motor followed by Goods. With 372k vehicle ads in August 2012, Milanuncios has the most complete offering in the Spanish market, well ahead of its competitors segundamano.es with 246k ads, and also the specialized motors vertical coches.net (120k ads).
Milanuncios helps to connect advertisers with those interested in the ad but does not mediate between the parties. Therefore, users need to be cautious in their interactions and transactions. As a general norm, the webpage recommends not to pay before receiving the product or service and users should meet in person to close the transaction. The website offers a series of simple filters to facilitate local searches.
The main competitors of milanuncios are segundamano.es, anuncios.ebay.es, loquo.com (owned by eBay), mundoanuncio.com, and campusanuncios.com.
