Classified Admin: Fees

The Classified Admin > Fees section is where you configure the payment plans used to purchase classified ads for a paid classified site. If you are running a free classified site, you do not need to do anything here.

To configure a new fee plan

Start by clicking the “Add Fee Plan” button at the top of the screen. This form will appear:

Many fields are required. Enter the name of the plan (which will be displayed to the users when they place ads), a description of the plan (optional) the cost/price of the plan, the duration (how long an ad will be active on the site after being placed), as well as the Images allowed for an ad. If you have the Regions module enabled, you can also opt to limit the number of Regions allowed in a listing. It is optional to limit the number of characters in the title or in the description.

You have the option to make the fee plan a private fee plan. This allows you to hide special pricing from public view and can be assigned by an admin to specific listings.

A typical configuration might be to have several plans with varying durations (like 30, 60, and 90 days) or plans with different images allowed for an ad (1, 2, or 4) or a combination of the two. You should try to keep it simple for your users. A user that easily understands what you’re offering is a user that will quickly buy it if they like it.

To edit existing fee plans

Select a plan that already exists from the Fees screen, like you see below:

Make any changes you want to the plan you wish to change–such as updating the price, the name, images allowed or the duration. After that, click “Update Plan” to save your changes. Make sure you click the Update Plan under the fields you JUST changed.

To delete a fee plan

Find the plan you no longer need and click on “Delete Plan” to get rid of it.
