If a seller has decided to display his number as well the button “Click to View Number” will appear next to it.

To reply to a message please visit your profile ( https://pinyourpet.com/profile/) and click on the “Messages” button. Then click on “Sent offers” and then on one of the envelope icons. Each Icon opens another chat. Alternatively you can click on the notifications in the top bar this will take you directly to a conversation.

There are several reasons why an ad can be gone. Reasons are for example:

  • Seller has temporary disabled the ad.
  • Seller has sold the item and permanently disabled the ad.
  • Ad was reported and removed.

If you click on the seller’s name at the ad you will get to his public profile. There you can see how many ads someone has sold if the seller has marked them as sold accordingly.

If an ad is deactivated or deleted the associated chat history is also deactivated or deleted.

Any seller can block any other user from sending messages to that particular seller.

If you think a seller blocked you accidentally try to contact the seller by phone if the phone number is provided. Otherwise please try to find another ad.
