Gumtree is About To Change And It Will Never Be The Same
eBay-owned Gumtree is about to celebrate its 10th birthday in Australia and to celebrate, they are changing.
The website is about to launch some brand new branding, as well as some new search functions that will it hopes, will allow it to become the biggest second-hand car sales website in Australia.
The website will also gain a dedicated jobs page for the first time.
The upgrades will see Gumtree go into direct competition with carsales.com.au and include searches by colour and model.
Gumtree does not currently charge for car listings and is mainly used for sales under $10,000.
General manager for Gumtree Martin Herbst said "This is the most significant step in Gumtree's 10 years in Australia,"
"While we knew our users were ready for a sleeker and more contemporary design, a rebrand has to be more than a new lick of paint. We wanted to ensure we addressed some of the areas our users, and non-users, said could improve their experience on our site and in our community," he added.
Around 7 million Australians currently visit the website every month and it operates across the UK, South Africa, Canada and Singapore.
