My photos are too big to upload from my iPhone/iPad

There is a 2MB limit when uploading an image on the "Sell" page. If you are having problems with the size of your images generated by your iPhone/iPad we suggest downloading and using the free "Simple Resize" App. Reducing the size of your photos also saves on your memory and makes sharing photos easier. 

I am having problems uploading multiple images on the "Sell" page

This is a glitch with iPhones/iPads as they save all the images with the same name, so unfortunately you can only upload one image if you are using your iPhone/iPad. If you want to add more, just use your desktop/laptop.  

I am having problems choosing categories for my item that I am selling

So this happens when you are using an iPhone or iPad and results in the selection box displaying "0 Items". If you click on the selection box, the categories that you have chosen will be shown. So please just carry on filing out the form as normal.

Why does the site look different on my computer etc ?

We promise we have tried to make this work on as many devices as possible. But there is always one that gets through the net. If you are having problems, please persist and try using an alternative browser for example, Google Chrome. You can always contact us with your queries at

MyLocalExchange gives you a marketplace, a local business directory, a noticeboard of news, deals and events at your fingertips.
