Guidelines for Puppy Listings
At Lancaster Puppies, we value our sellers and want to make the process as simple as possible. However, to keep our marketplace running properly for our puppy buyers, we have a few guidelines to follow for posting listings. Please only advertise if you are committed to taking good care of your puppies and dogs and would like to see them placed in happy homes. We sincerely thank you for your understanding and look forward to working with you!
Classified Puppy Advertising
To get started, create a seller account. In order to list your puppies for sale, complete the two-factor authentication process. Once your account is approved, you can start advertising your puppies!
To create an ad, fill out information about the puppy, like his or her name, his breed, age, and personality. Then include your contact information, like your phone number and an email. Then add a picture or pictures of the puppy you're selling. Pictures of the puppy from different angles, and doing different activities are recommended. We encourage you to also include pictures of the puppy's parents. Do not include pictures of other puppies for sale or your ad will be removed immediately. If you would like to sell more than one puppy, you must create more ads.
After creating your ad, you can check out with a credit card (Visa/Mastercard/Discover) on our secure server.
Customers will contact you directly through the contact information you provided. You can update the puppy's pictures as often as you'd like, but cannot change the title or breed once the listing has been created. The ad will automatically go offline unless you renew. We reserve the right to edit or delete any individual ad for impropriety or misuse of the guidelines.
At no time will Lancaster Puppies request to confirm your account once it is created, nor ask for your login information for any reason. If you receive a notice or an email that your account must be confirmed, let us know. These may be phishing attempts, and they are not emails coming from Lancaster Puppies.
One Puppy Per Ad
You may only advertise one puppy per advertisement. Any ad with language indicating that there are more puppies in the litter for sale, or pictures of other puppies besides the one specified in the ad copy, will be deleted with no refund. Any ads that were created, and then modified to indicate that there are multiple puppies for sale will be deleted with no refund. Each ad is only for a single puppy, not a litter. If you have multiple puppies in a litter for sale, you must create an ad for each puppy in the litter. Also not permitted is switching an ad to a different puppy once that puppy is sold.
All puppies must be entered into the correct and appropriate breed categories. Purebred categories are reserved strictly for purebred puppies. Puppies that do not follow common breed standards are subject to questioning, we may request a DNA test to allow them in the purebred category, regardless of registration papers. Mixed puppies that are in the purebred category will be moved to the correct category without notification. Mixed breeds must be entered into a mix (hybrid) category or the correct "designer breed", three-way mixed puppies can not be put into two-way mix categories. If you have a new breed or mix that you do not see a category for please contact us.
You are welcome to list your client's puppies, however, you may only provide a link to an external website representing that specific seller. The listing must reflect only the actual seller's information. You may not include watermarks, URLs, etc. in any part of the listing including photos and videos but not limited to those, unless they represent the seller's information.
Stud Dog Service Advertising
You can place a stud dog ad for as low as $15.00. During the time your ad is live, you can update the pictures, stud details, and contact information on your listing at any time by logging in. Lancaster Puppies reserves the right to terminate any ad at any time, for any reason.
