Forum Sales
  • XenForo > 1.4.x
  • Paypal Premier or Business account (for paypal payments)

Have you ever searched for a simple sale solution allowing your user to sell their stuff directly from the forums ?

Forum Sales is the solution ! Through a few additional fields to fill-in upon thread creation or edit, your users can start selling their stuff through threads using paypal. You can fine tune who and where sales are possible thanks to usergroup permission and nodes configuration.

This product is also for you a new source of revenue thanks to Paypal Adaptive payments implementation, allowing you to set a percentage you want to retain on user sales. The percentage amount is automatically processed during the payment and sent to your paypal account while the rest is sent to the seller account.

Of course, you can also let your user decide wether they want to donate or not a percentage of the sale as a participation to your website cost, all through options.

If you authorize it, user can as well contact the seller to buy through another mean (no automatic percentage on sales in that configuration).
