  • Buy and Sell FAQ

    • I successfully submitted a listing, but can not see it on the site.

      All submissions have to be approved by our admins before they appear on the site. On weekdays we approve listings within 2-3 hours, on weekends and public holidays it might take a bit longer.

    • How can I edit my listing

      Unfortunately, it's currently not possible to edit a Buy&Sell listing.

    • How do I delete my listing ?

      Here is the link.

  • Directory FAQ

    • How can I update my venue listing?

      Venue listings are part of the editorial content and uploaded/edited directly by our Editors and Listings Managers. Users can not edit content directly. If you are associated with a venue and would like to report mistakes, or request changes, please use the "Report Mistakes" button in the related venue listing. Events and Promotions can be submitted by any user for any venue.

    • How can I add images to my venue listing?

      If you are associated with a venue and would like to add images to a venue listing, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page.

    • What should I do if my venue has moved to a new location?

      Easy, submit the new venue using the Submit Venues page! As a matter of policy, we don’t delete venues, we mark them closed and, if applicable, add a note directing our users to the venue listing of the new location.

    • Why is the map in the directory sometimes inaccurate?

      Simply put, GPS doesn’t work so well in China. China doesn’t use the same GPS standard as the rest of the world, which means that the marker on Google (and even Baidu maps) can be as much as 500 meters off. We do our best to manually pinpoint the locations by hand, but it’s a tricky business. You can read more about the topic if you’re interested here. Nerd. If you’d like to report a particularly bad GPS pin location, you can use the “Report Mistake” button on the venue listing, and we’ll do what we can to fix it!

  • Events FAQ

    • Why is my event not on SmartShanghai yet?

      Did you know we get between 50-60 event submissions a day? It’s a lot to go through. Listing events usually takes us 3-5 working days, so plan ahead. If you submit an event the day before an event, there is a strong chance your event will NOT get listed.

      Please remember that we do not list every event that gets submitted. You will receive a private message in your SmartShanghai Inbox once your listing has been published (or rejected). Please do not resubmit your event -- this will not expedite the process. If your event is far in the future, the approval process might take longer, as upcoming events for this and next week have priority. SmartShanghai advertisement clients also get priority approval.

      Thanks for your patience, and for taking the time to submit your events to SmartShanghai!

    • Why do some events not appear on the site?

      Every day we receive between 30-60 event submissions. We simply cannot list all of these, for several reasons. As a "curated" website, we believe that a smaller selection of higher quality events is better for our readers. We filter out poorly organized events, events that have no description, events that our readers probably will not be interested in, illegal events such as unlicensed public gatherings, and "events" that are really just a tool to sell something, such as set menus and classes. This will always be our policy.

      We will try to provide an explanation if we reject your event, but we do not always have time. Again, resubmitting your event will not help.

      Feel free to drop us a message on the Contact Us if you feel you’ve been rejected unfairly.

    • Why is the event description for my event as it appears on the webpage different from what I submitted?

      To maintain a consistent quality on the website, we rewrite the submitted promotional text on event submissions to fit our editorial format. We try to add a third party perspective to our events listings. We also tend to delete PR speak or hyperbolic language, unless it’s unintentionally hilarious. Stick to the facts and we’re less likely to dramatically rewrite your submission.

      You're running a house music night with you and your friends at a club? Great! Give us useful details. Preferably not in all caps. Include things like pricedoor policydress code (if any), who's playing/DJingany special performancesdealspromotions, etc. If you submit a five word description for a club night, we're liable to reject it, unless those words are "free booze and all Morrissey."

      If you're unhappy with the way your event appears on SmartShanghai, feel free to drop us a message on the Contact Us page.

  • Housing FAQ

    • Can I post my listing more than once?

      To avoid the housing section turning into a complete mess, we don't allow the same listing to be posted online at the same time. Please either refresh your post, or delete and repost it.

    • What are the housing agency account types?

      Housing agency accounts are divided into three categories:
      - Basic (up to 2 listings per week)
      - Premium (up to 20 listings per week)
      - Gold (up to 40 listings per week)
      For more details, please visit the agency account page.

      If you'd like to upgrade your membership to post more listings, please contact us, and we’ll process your request as soon as possible. Please check your registered email address during this period for our reply.

    • Why has my listing been deleted?

      There are several reasons why your listing might have been deleted. Some common ones are:

- Listing an apartment in the wrong category (ex. a shared apartment in “apartment for rent”)
      - An error in the pricing (ex. writing the shared price as the whole rent price)
      - Exaggerated language in the description (“best,” “fastest,” “most effective,” etc.) or unreasonably subjective descriptors in the title (ex. “nice view,” “must-see,” “rent very fast,” etc.)
      - Using outdated or inaccurate terminology, such as “French Concession.”
      - Writing in a language other than English
      - Not deleting an already rented property in time
      - We judged the listing was meant for purposes other than rental (such as promotion).
      - You are an agency
      - You post multiple listings with private accounts

      If you feel your listing shouldn't have been deleted, please feel free to Contact Us

    • How can I push my listing back to the top of the list?

      Here's how it works. Three days after your first submission, our system will automatically send a reminder to your registered email. This email contains links that allow you to either delete your listing (if the apartment has already been rented out) or push it back to the top of the list. There's no need to re-submit the information. By clicking the link, you are moving your existing listing back to the top position on the list. After you've pushed the listing back to the top of the list, you will receive two more emails within three days after each push. So, in total, private users can bump their listing a maximum of three times.

      Please note: Private accounts can only post one listing. If you bypass this rule by using multiple accounts, you risk getting all your accounts and listings blocked and removed from the site.

    • How can I edit my listing?

      You should see an Edit button on the listing. Please note that this button will disappear after the listing has been up on the website for 24 hours. This is to avoid misuse of our housing section. Please make sure all the information is correct when you submit your listing, and correct any mistakes within 24 hours of the listing going up.

    • How can I verify my account if I don’t have a Chinese phone number?

      Please contact us to verify your account. We should get back to you within 1-2 working days.

    • Why has the "edit" button on my listing disappeared?

      Listings can only be edited within 24 hours of submission on the site. This is to avoid misuse of our housing section. Please make sure all the information is correct when you submit your listing, and correct any mistakes within 24 hours of submission.

    • How do I delete my listing?

      You can see all your current listings n your userarea at Each listing has a delete button. Please note that you might not be able to re-post another listing right away, private user accounts are limited to one listing per month (and that doesn't get reset if you delete a listing).
