Project Description

I need a basic and reliable bot/script created for gumtree South Africa posting ([url removed, login to view]). It needs to be a clean/simple autoposter program.

The idea is for the program to simplify the process of creating ads on the site, an independent program that will remember certain fields and automatically fill them in, followed by auto posting them onto selected gumtree categories and sites all over the world (select cities=yes / select categories=yes)

Currently there are a few existing products on the market some more complicated than others. However the problem with commercial scripts is that sooner or later they stop working as kijiji (Gumtree) plugs the loophole.

The script/bot I am asking for is for MY OWN PRIVATE ADVERTS and the program will NOT BE RESOLD.

A certain amount of research into gumtree is required but it's simple enough. Ideally there can be a database (like ebay's turbolister)

Gumtree has an re-post function by entering the item number one can repost the ads. I would like to implement this function automatically into the program so that after 'x' minutes or hours or days as defined by the user, the ad would be reposted.

I want this to be a very USER FRIENDLY AND SIMPLE DESIGN but also functionality bonus to include proxy addon. There is NO IMAGE VERIFICATION or anything (NO CAPTCHA!) on [url removed, login to view]

There are 2 ways to do this. One, as a standalone program (working from a PC) or the other way is from a SERVER (that would be better) :) (PHP and SQL would be nice so that I can implement it as a website)... Also very important is that all my ads posted go LIVE instantly - meaning that they bypass the security check delay that gumtree implements for new accounts. I know this is possible as I have used the services of someone who can do this.

Ideally I would like the script to have these kind of features:


Setup Campaigns: With our poster you can setup unlimited campaigns with unlimited ads linked to the campaigns. You can also choose to post each campaign with a selection from your accounts and proxy lists.

Ads: You can use our single ad setup form to create your ad for any section on Gumtree, whether it be your age for a personals section or the number of rooms in your flat/house.

Accounts: You can setup unlimited accounts for use with your campaigns with our poster and choose account options.

Repositry/Variables: You can setup variables for your ads with our repositry option. E.g. List name [toy], under list: teddy; toy car; game. When your ad is posted our poster will randomly select a variable from this list before posting, this will help to stop your ads from becoming flagged for spam or being blocked by the site.

Proxy Support: Our poster allows you to use proxies when posting, if your IP has been blocked from the site before you can use this feature to continue posting.

Deleting Cookies: Our poster deletes your cookies between each post.

Scheduling Ads: With our ad scheduler you can setup your ads to be posted on gumtree every Day/Week/BiWeekly/Monthly so that once your ads are setup they will automatically be posted by our poster at the times/dates that you specify.

Post History: Our poster will store all of your posting history so that you can revisit your posted ads or check to see if you have already posted any ads.

Logging: Offering a Gumtree posting service? Then this feature may benefit yourself. Our poster logs the following after each campaign has been submitted:

Region | Category | Ads Title | Account Name | Account Email | Proxy | Post Result | Post Reference | Comment

I am looking for someone who has the time and patience to work with me and help me with setting up - I will reward accordingly.
