New Portal: PropBay

31 JAN 2019

We are excited to let you know that RentBay, one of the current free portals we automatically feed your rental properties to now has a for sale section for residential and commercial property - propbay.co.za

New portal.


We  have enabled the feed so your for sale properties will automatically be copied to this portal. Like the other free portals, you don’t have to do anything - it happens automatically. The link to the property on the portal will appear alongside the other portal links in your admin console.

New Default Property Sort Order

15 NOV 2018

We have changed the default order of “for sale” and “for rent” properties on your website to highest price first. We’ve seen this makes your website (and therefore you) look better since it generally presents your better quality stock first. These properties also tend to have better pictures and descriptions.

New default sort order for ‘for sale’ and ‘for rent’ properties.


The default order of your “sold” or “rented” properties is still newest properties first. 

We have tried to ensure that any past requests for any other order have been kept. 

If you would like to change the default ordering of properties on your website please let us know.

New Feature: Send Property Alerts At Any Time

03 OCT 2018

Exciting news! You can now send property alerts yourself as soon as you’ve listed a property. No more waiting for property alerts to go out the next morning.

Property alerts are an excellent marketing tool to send your properties to as many people as possible, and now you can increase the chances that you will be the first person to present the property to buyers. This is very important in the case of an open mandate as buyers could be working with multiple agents in the area so the first agent to present the property to the actual buyer will get the sale.

After ticking the property alert box when editing or uploading a property, select this option in your admin console.
The list of property alerts to be sent is shown in your admin console.

It is important to keep adding as many subscribers as possible to your database by collecting emails at show days, email enquiries and other personal interactions. Please be sure that you only add valid email addresses and only add email addresses you collected yourself.

If you have a large list of subscribers you would like to add, please email support@webbox.co.za and we will gladly add them for you.

Please give this new feature a try and let us know what you think.
