New Listing - Introduction
There are several links throught the classified script that will allow a user to go to the page where a user can list a new item. There are also configuration options available to your Site Adminsitratior that may impact what you see when you start a new listing. So, while this FAQ attempts to describe the full process what you see could be different then what is described here!
New Listing - Selecting A Category
Step 1: Selecting The Category
The Classifieds script has the capability to support two levels of categories. Your Site Administrator may or may not use the Parent Category level to help organize the listings on the site.
Please note that on this page there are a series of radio butons that will only allow ou to select a single category. Select the category that is most appropriate for your listing and click the "Start New Listing" button.
New Listing - Selecting The AdType
Step 2: Selecting the AdType
On the second page for adding a new listing you will see a selectable area where you can change the category that you are in. Below this are options to select the AdType for the listing that you are about to add.
Please note that the AdType you select will impact how your listing is desplayed so it is important to select the type of listin carefully before moving on to the next step.
New Listing - The Details Page
Step 3: The listing details Page
This page contains the actual information that is saved to the listing that users will see when you post a new item in the classifieds. Following is an overview of the Options that you will see:
The classifieds script uses a system of Credits to contol the cost of using the classifieds script. The cost in credits refers to the cost to list this item in these classified credits.
This area displays the category and the type of listing. By the time you are on this page you should not need to make any changes here but of you do make the changes before adding anything that follows of the data that is entered below will be lost when you change these settings!
New Listing Information:
This are includes the title of the listing which will be what is displayed in the classifieds, in any external modules as well as the title of any thread created in the forums. A well crafted and direct tirle for your listing is a very good idea!
The next item in this area id the Timeframe and this refers to the length of time from when the listing is posted to the system until it will expire.
Finally, there is an option to upload an image with your listing. Note that the image uploaded now will be the default image shown with your listing and it may be shown on other parts of the website. So a good image is important to help your listing work for you.
In this area are three basic options. The Relist Until Sold option tells the script that you want the classifeds to deduct the credits from your account to relist the item if it closes without a sale. It is imporant that if you decide that you want to change this setting taht you come back and edit your listing to turn this off or your listing will continue to relist itself until you are out of credits or someone commits to buy your item which ever happens first!
The next two options have to do with ways that members can communicate about your listing. The Allow Comments opption allows members to post public comments at the bottom of your listing. These can be questions, feedback, or general oppinions. The Allow Private Offers option on the other hand is a private mechanism where a person interested in your listing can privately make you an doffer on your listing. An example might be someone trying to sell a used car for $10,000 and youa re willing to pay say $8,000 for it. The buyer can use this mecanism to post the private offer and the seller and potential buyer can then discuss in a private thread inside of the classifieds system.
The price information includes the price as it applies to normal fixed "for sale" type items as well as Start, Reserve, and Buy_it prices for auction type listings. Please note that if you do not wish to use a Reserve or Buy-It price that these fields should be left empty!
Note that the classified script can work to allow prospective buyers to instantly pay for your item via PayPal. Please be careful if using this option to make sure that your price information includes and extra shipping, handling, or taxes as there is no process to add these items at this point. If you wish to allow buyers to use paypal, please enter your PayPal e-mail address. If you do NOT wish to allow PayPal to be used, please leave this field empty.
This is an area where additional information should be added to help describe your item or you as the seller.
This is the maid descriptive text for your message and in here you can use the normal forums editor to enhance your text with various sizes, fonts, colors, etc, add image or web links, use smilies, etc. This is a free text area where you can post what you need to post to support your listing.
Terms & Conditions:
These are important notes about the listing that you are about to post and they should be read before you post your new ad!
