How do I buy something on Gumtree in Mittagong?

To buy something on Gumtree Mittagong, you simply search for something you want to buy on the Gumtree website and then contact the seller right there and then.  Sellers have their messaging information or contact information to help you get in contact and get the deal done.  It can all happen very quickly and you could be picking up your latest bargain that day.



Remember you are dealing with individuals, so cash can be exchanged or direct payment methods.  Be financially sensible and only exchange payment at the point of collecting the item as once you send the money you have no way of getting it back if you do not receive the product as you are not conducting your transaction through the website directly.  So Buyer beware.

To become a seller on Gumtree Mittagong, it is a simple process of visiting the Gumtree website and creating an account.  You are then able to list your item for sale!  It is that easy.  You can add details of what you are selling, add photos, a category and determine a price you are willing to sell for.



Your Gumtree advertisement then goes live and can be seen and searched by everyone looking to buy your particular type of item.  Even people looking to buy who are outside Mittagong region can see your items for sale so the reach of your Gumtree ad is well beyond the Mittagong local area.

Your Gum Tree Login

After that it is up to you and the seller and what you can agree to.  Buying and selling on Gumtree Australia can become somewhat addictive :).



Grabbing a bargain in Mittagong or turning your unwanted items into cash is a great hobby so enjoy the sales process.

  • They might be moving house and it does not fit in the new house


  • They are very busy and time-poor – they just don’t have the time to be meeting with people and haggle over an item
