As our community grows and Stellenbosch Seconds becomes busier and busier, it has become necessary for us to manage certain types of content on Stellenbosch Seconds ,to ensure both a safe and enjoyable experience for the majority of our members and to stay true to our mission statement and vision.

As always, the three fundamental rules on Stellenbosch Seconds are:

  • The product or service being advertised has to be local,
  • Members may only post one business related post per week (once every 7 days)
  • and that members are accountable for their posts.

We very kindly ask, that members post directly onto Stellenbosch Seconds and not share from other groups or pages, as permissions issues result in the majority of the other members only seeing “Attachment Unavailable”, as a result it is absolutely non negotiable that we ask members to please add their posts to Stellenbosch Seconds and not share from personal profiles and other groups or pages. This is the only way that we can manage this.
