3. Listing and un-listing a property

3.1. General visibility

PowerTiz is a real-time website and posting a listing results in an immediate activation and visibility of the listing for all users. However, due to the pure nature of the Internet, a listing may take few minutes to propagate and be visible along the Internet network. PowerTiz Limited cannot be held responsible for any delay related to the visibility of a listing.

PowerTiz also offers an option to delay the posting and thus the visibility of an ad.

We reserve the right to delay the activation or your ads, which may consequently appear as pending in your account, as they wait for system approval. This may take place during or outside of office hours.

3.2. Status and visibility

Some listing statuses automatically affect the visibility of a property on our websites. As an example, a property with a status set to “Unlisted” will not be visible by the users but only by you.

When you set the status of the property to be listed, the ad becomes visible for every user on PowerTiz. When you set the status of a property to be unlisted, the ad is removed from PowerTiz. A delay of few minutes can occur before the effectiveness of the visibility on PowerTiz.

It is your sole responsibility to make a listing visible or not and we cannot be held responsible if the visibility of an ad is not the expected one.

3.3. Auto-renewal

A listing will remain active (regardless if it is listed or unlisted) as long as it is renewed, either manually or automatically.

3.4. Upgrades

An Upgrade (“Upgrade(s)”) is an enhanced product that you may purchase at any time. It is designed to help promote your listing above standard properties or services in search results, for the term specified in your order for the Upgrade(s). Details related to any Upgrade such as the life span, content, validity, etc. are available here. Please check this page regularly as we reserve the right to add, modify, remove and revoke the content, options, features and length of upgrades at any time and without prior notice.

We offer three listing packages:

  • Standard package.
  • Gold package.
  • Platinum package.

Members have the possibility to renew Standard, Gold or Platinum packs on a monthly base, endlessly, until the property is sold / let / shared. Members can also upgrade from a lower pack to a higher pack at any time. Downgrades are not possible and will not be subject to any refund.

Extra options available to purchase (some of them are available by default with Gold and Platinum packs):

  • Permanent upgrades.
  • Temporary upgrades.

Permanent upgrades for a given property ad (when purchased):

  • Photo pack (for adding more than 3 photos per listing).
  • video pack (for adding one or more videos per listing).
  • Thick frame (for adding a thicker frame to the listing).
  • Tag (for adding a tag on the listing).

Temporary upgrades for a given property ad (when purchased):

  • Spotlight (1 day).
  • Featured (7 days).

3.5. Standard package listings

Standard listings are basic listings that will regularly, but not necessarily at any time, rank below Gold listings and Platinum listings in search results on PowerTiz. Standard listings get less visibility than Gold and Platinum listings depending on the users’ search criteria and ordering preferences.

The applicable rates for the Standard package listing are available here. PowerTiz reserves the right to change one or all rates applicable to the Standard package listing, at any time and without prior notice. However, we will inform you about the new applicable rates and please feel free to review such package rates, as available on the RealTiz website from time to time.

3.6. Gold package listings

Gold listings are a special type of listing package that will regularly, but not necessarily at any time, rank above Standard listings in search results. Gold listings are regularly automatically renewed and get more visibility depending on the users’ search criteria and ordering preferences. If not renewed, Gold Ads become Standard ads after a given period.

The applicable rates for the Gold package listing are available here. PowerTiz reserves the right to change one or all rates applicable to the Gold package listing, at any time and without prior notice. However, we will inform you about the new applicable rates and please feel free to review such package rates, as available on the RealTiz website from time to time.

3.7. Platinum package listings

Platinum listings are a special type of listing package that will regularly, but not necessarily at any time, rank above Standard listings and Gold listings in search results. Platinum listings are regularly automatically renewed and get more visibility depending on the users’ search criteria and ordering preferences. If not renewed, Platinum Ads become Gold Ads after a given period.

The applicable rates for the Platinum package listing are available here. PowerTiz reserves the right to change one or all rates applicable to the Platinum package listing, at any time and without prior notice. However, we will inform you about the new applicable rates and please feel free to review such package rates, as available on the RealTiz website from time to time.

3.8. Spotlight listings

Spotlight listings are shown on PowerTiz Home Page, regardless the listing type (for sale, for rent, for share or service). Spotlight listings are also shown on Category and Search Result Pages. For Category and Search Result Pages, only Spotlight listings of the related category (for sale, for rent, for share, etc.) will be shown. This means that a Spotlight property for rent cannot be visible on a Search Result Page for sale nor on a Category Page for sale. However, it will be displayed on Home Page.

Several Spotlight listings can be purchased and used at the same time by the same user or by different users, to enhance more than one listing. However, only one Spotlight listing can be visible at a time on Home page, Category Page or Search Result Page. If more than one Spotlight upgrade has been purchased at the same time by the same user or by different users, one Spotlight listing will randomly be displayed on Home page, Category Page and Search Result Page each time a user opens or refreshes the page. Spotlight listings provide greater prominence for your advert than a Featured Property and a larger photo than a Featured listing.

3.9. Featured listings

Featured listings appear on PowerTiz Home Page under the section “Selection of featured listings”, regardless the listing type (for sale, for rent, for share or service). Featured listings are also shown on Category and Search Result Pages. For Category and Search Result Pages, only Featured listings of the related category (for sale, for rent, for share, etc.) will be shown. This means that a Featured property for rent cannot be visible on a Search Result Page for sale nor on a Category Page for sale. However, it will be displayed on Home Page.

Several Featured listings can be purchased and used at the same time by the same user or by different users to enhance more than one listing. All Featured listings will be visible at the same time on Home Page, Category Page and Search Result Page.

Depending on the device used to browse PowerTiz, the number of Featured listing visible on a single page (Home Page, Category Page and Search Result Page) can vary. Featured listings are always displayed by most recent first.

Featured listings are exclusively for properties and unlike Spotlight cannot be purchased for enhancing a service.

3.10. Miscellaneous Options (or options)

In addition to these upgrades, you have the possibility to purchase some Options for your listing, namely but not limited to:

  • Thick frame: this makes the frame of your listing thicker for all available view modes.
  • Photo pack: you can add more pictures to your listing.
  • Video pack: you can add some videos to your listing.
  • Tag: this highlights a specific feature or aspect of the listing and show it as a text tag on top of the main listing picture.

Some or all of these enhancements may be included in a Gold or a Platinum upgrade. We can decide at any time to add or remove some of these options to our Upgrades.

Whether or not they are purchased within a Package Upgrade, Miscellaneous options will always remain available, even if the property is unlisted and listed again later or if the Package Upgrade expires.

3.11. Sold, let and shared, agreed and withdrawn listings

Listing upgrades are not available for agreed, sold, let and shared properties. Listing upgrades are consequently not transferred to the property which status has been changed to agreed, closed, sold, let or shared. Thus, listings with a status agreed, closed, sold, let or shared will not carry any extra visibility option and will be visible as Standard listings on related Category Pages and Search Result pages.

Listing upgrades are not available for withdrawn listings:

Purchasing an upgrade does not necessarily make your listing more visible at all time. As upgrades can be purchased by different users at the same time, your listing may compete with other upgraded listings or standard listings.

3.12. Unlisted properties

Unlisted properties are by definition not visible to users others than you. Thus, Upgrades cannot enhance the visibility of your Ads until you set them as Listed.

4. General provisions

The following provisions apply to each listing Upgrade:

Upgrades only become effective once a valid payment has been received.

You cannot swap the listing nominated in your listing Upgrade with any other listing.

You may upgrade from Standard to Gold, Standard to Platinum or Gold to Platinum at any time.

You may upgrade from Standard, Gold or Platinum to Feature and/or Spotlight at any time.

No refund can be claimed when listing Upgrades are sold, let, withdrawn or removed from the site, for any reason, before their expiry date.

If you decided to purchase an Upgrade or an Option and to postpone the publication of your listing(s), the Upgrade(s) and Option(s) will become active from the day the ad first becomes listed on PowerTiz.

Unlisting an Ad with an Upgrade does not cancel the Upgrade. If your Upgrade has not expired by the time you set your Ad as Listed, your Ad will still be upgraded for remaining time of the Upgrade.

Unlisting an Ad with an Upgrade does not extend the validity of the Upgrade.

It is possible to manually or automatically renew an Upgrade. Should you activate the auto-renewal, your Upgrade(s) will be renewed automatically for the term you have selected and the related payment taken from your preferred payment account.

Where a listing is upgraded from Standard to Gold, Standard to Platinum or Gold to Platinum, by the user or a third party, then the existing listing package term will cease on the date of such upgrade and the existing listing Upgrade will be superseded by the upgraded listing Upgrade and no refund can be guaranteed to you in respect of the remainder of the existing listing Upgrade term (refunds will be discretionary).

Several upgrades can be purchased at the same time. Some of them can possibly lead to a new expiry date.

No downgrades are permitted for any listing Upgrade during the contract term and no refund will be performed.

Pausing your ad does not extend the lifespan of your ad and the calendar will continue to run for any time that the ad is paused.

5. Price and payments

Posting a listing on PowerTiz is free, but under certain conditions. For individuals account holders, posting a property listing for sale or for rent is free for a fixed term of 7 days. This term can be extended upon request, to 14 days when you share your listing on Facebook. Once the free period has expired, you should pay the associated fee to keep your listing visible on PowerTiz. Should the payment of a listing renewal or the purchase of an option or upgrade end up with payment details being incorrect or the payment of the associated fee not being taken for whatever reason, we reserve the right to un-list your listing at any time and without notice until the payment is made.

The payment for your ad is due when an ad is posted/listed (before going live).
