    Hello guys

    I have been reading up on your plugin and it looks really good. I have not installed it yet but will do soon after a paypal option has been installed.

    Here are some ideas that will make this plugin GREATER…

    Have the option for the site admin to charge site users to use the classified.
    The charge can be per item or per month.
    If this is set to $0 or £0, it will cost them nothing but they can see that the price can change
    If the user has a PayPal account, let the user be able to sell an item through paypal
    Let the user put a stock count on each item so when sold the stock count goes down
    If item is sold through PayPal, the seller gets an email/site message saying payment recieved, send item with a link to the item.
    Let there be a scoring facility that AFTER the user has brought an item, they can rate the sellers service with a link to the item
    Create an auto link for any item for sale that only the seller can see so they can past that link on their pages.
    Can items be seen outside of the website???

    and all this would work through paypal.

    If this was done, Id pay for this no problem at all!

    Do you have a link to show what it looks like in use?

    Would be happy to pay but it would be better to see even some dummy adverts to see how it actually looks and works first.

    Or perhaps I missed something.

    Many thanks and best wishes.

  3. Business Maintenance Services says:

  4. Businees Maintenance Services says:
