Premium Benefits

Users who purchase and deploy the PortSide Premium Listing Package, as either a Monthly or Annual package, for either Leisure or Commercial Businesses and/or the paid package for Events or Social Groups acknowledge the following; Paid Promotional Advertising Packages allow their attached listings to be displayed higher than, before or above the previously mentioned Premium/Paid Packages in search results and on Homepage displays. These Promotional Packages have a limited time-span and are used for short term advertising. Owners of the aforementioned Premium/Paid Packages are also eligible to purchase Promotional Packages for their listings to be displayed at the top of search results.

Furthermore, the aforementioned Premium and Paid packages do not guarantee a listing will be visible on the Homepage every time. The Homepage listing display for businesses is limited to 20 Listings at any one time and for events, limited to 4 at any one time, randomly re-generating the chosen displayed listings every time the Homepage is loaded to ensure a randomly distributed share of advertised time. The site allocates Promotional Packages first, before completing the available slots with randomised Premium Listing Packages.

Limited Time Offers

From time to time PortSide may run limited time offers to customers. These offers can be removed at any time, without notice, voiding any previously stated dates of availability and service. Customers choosing to use our offer of 6 months free listings for monthly packages must complete the normal login and setup/registration process as per standard procedure. This includes entering credit card details at the time of sign-up. If a user does not cancel/close their account before the 6 month free period ends, the card on file will then be charged a monthly fee at the rate assigned to the package the user is currently utilising for their free listing. This charge will continue to occur monthly as per normal listing requirements. At any time a user may change their choice of package; or close their account and stop all payments at the end of the current period which they are in.
