Please nominate this mod for MOTM!

iTrader 2.8
Click here for a version for vBulletin 3

This modification offers you a rating system for trades which are made on your board. As it is an advantage of the rating system on ebay, this gives your users some secureness.


I added vBulletin 4 support for this modification because Nexus (vbenhancer) announced that he won't do this in the next time. He gave me the permissions to release it here. Thank you!

Please do not contact vbenhancer for support! He is not responsible for this version.


The installation is as easy as abc. You only have to upload the files and import the product in your vBulletin admincp.

Also updating this modification (including this from vB3) isn't very difficult. Only overwrite all files and the product in your vBulletin admincp.

thank you this is great mod

askeroglu 03 Jan 2010 16:49

What does exactly this mod do? Does it enable to sell something for the forum members?

entertain 03 Jan 2010 16:57

Maybe you can take a look here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=230543

When you are running a market area on your board where users deal with goods, the users can rate each other for the trades and so on. It's like the rating system on ebay.

yahooooh 03 Jan 2010 17:40

thank you for updating

abdobasha2004 03 Jan 2010 18:17

good mod

Kolbi 03 Jan 2010 20:17

Thank you!

Wird es eine deutsche Übersetzung von dir geben?

Wo sind die Vorteile gegenüber microCLASSIFIEDS (General Classifieds) außer dem Bewertungssystem?

entertain 03 Jan 2010 21:03


No, I am not translating this modification into German. It's a matter of time. :(

microCLASSIFIEDS and iTrader are two completely different mods:
With the one you can sell your products and iTrader just consists of the rating system. The deals with iTrader are made via pm or threads.

Can a previous translation be imported? Does a translation exists? :)

entertain 03 Jan 2010 21:14

yes this may work, but I don't know if there is one. :o

TrailRecon 03 Jan 2010 21:15

Thank you for this!! Was waiting for it!

Clicked installed!!

messengermatt 03 Jan 2010 21:25

I wont install this until its guaranteed to work because the known issues are the most important features of iTrader.

Tagged for future consideration.

This would be awesome if we could implement this to work with microClassifieds/Auction

Thanks for the update.
