Great news, we just released a frequently requested feature:
Seller profile pages. These pages highlight all the listings from a seller. These pages will soon contain seller ratings.

In recent days, Enthusify shipped the following new features and fixes:

2) The ability for community members to see sold listings
3) A new 'success' message upon the completion of creating a new listing
4) Moderation tools for forum administrators and moderators
5) An increase in the number of items that display in the default view
6) Improved photo compression and handling
7) Improved handling of special characters
8) Improved handling of the threads that the plugin creates in a vBulletin sub forum

We plan to ship the following features in coming days:
a) The ability for a seller to indicate he/she wants to be paid via check
b) The ability for a seller to opt out of the 'buy now' button
c) Tools to facilitate price negotiation (OBO/'haggle' system)
d) The ability for a seller to access 'sold' listings from 'My Listings'
e) Improvements to the photo upload user interface
f) A Facebook share button on listings
g) The ability for an admin to choose to display relevant listings from eBay from within Enthusify

And after that...
i) more fee and access controls around vBulletin user groups

If Oprah were here she would say, "You get a feature and you get a feature and you get a feature."

We are excited to announce more payment transfer options for sellers in the latest release of the Enthusify plugin. Now sellers can select between PayPal, Check, or Direct Deposit. Sellers can also bypass the plugin's embedded payment processing and protection service and chose to manage payment on his/her own.

Here is a screen shot of the choices a seller sees when he/she is creating a listing:

We are excited to announce a massive update:

User group access and fee customization!
  • You can determine whether or not a usergroup can sell an item in the marketplace.
  • You can specify the transaction fee you wish to retain keep from each transaction, per usergroup.
To take advantage of this feature:
  1. Sign into the vBulletin admin control panel -> Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager
  2. Click “go” to edit the desired usergroup
  3. The second section, Enthusify, has a toggle that controls whether or not that usergroup can sell.
  4. There is also a field to enter a fee. Type in a number (max of two decimals) that represents the % fee you’d like to collect from each successful sale. Do NOT include the % sign.
  5. Save.
  6. Note: These fields will be applied according to the PRIMARY usergroup that each user belongs to. If a user’s primary usergroup cannot sell an item, but is a member of a usergroup that can sell, the fee from the secondary usergroup will apply.
New Or Best Offer (OBO) system!
  • When creating a listing, a seller can indicate if he/she would like to accept best offers for the item.
  • If a seller is accepting offers, buyers can submit an offer from the item’s info page.
  • Using the messaging system, a seller can send a buyer a link to a unique checkout page that corresponds to a special price for the item.
  • Sellers can cancel offers they’ve sent to buyers.
Usability enhancements!
  • Improved email copy, layout, and design for sellers when their item sells.
  • Improved email copy, layout, and design to notify a member that someone messaged them via the marketplace.
  • Improved the image upload process and user interface for a seller creating a listing.
  • Various improvements to buttons, forms, and backgrounds.
  • Various minor improvements to the messaging system.
  • Various minor bug fixes.
Thread prefixes!
  • vBulletin threads created by Enthusify now work with an existing plugin (made by JamesGunner at vBulletin.org) that allow you to append a prefix to threads posted to a subforum.
  • The necessary files and instructions are included in the latest Enthusify zip package.
  • Be an awesome member of the vBulletin community and click “MARK AS INSTALLED” here to give JamesGunner credit for his plugin.
Postbit template
  • You can optionally add a link to your member's postbit template that links to the member's items for sale in the marketplace.

Yes. For transactional pages that require SSL for security or PCI (payment card industry) compliance, the user is taken to a new page. The checkout page is an example of a transactional page that requires SSL (a secure socket layer).

You can check out the experience at any of our partner sites. Go here:
Porsche marketplacehttp://www.planet-9.com/classifieds.php
Click on any item. Click the "Buy Now!" button. You will see that we take the user to a secure page that is not hosted on your domain but references your domain.

Thanks for your kind words about our marketplace mod.

For the sake of clarity, we have the same 'on page' experience as PayPal or Google. If you don't have a SSL cert, you can't offer 'on page' check out. In the same way you might offer a PayPal powered 'check out' button and that button takes you to a new secure page, we too offer a 'check out' button that takes you to a new cobranded page. Google, PayPal, and we HAVE to do that in order to encrypt the payment information. If you have an SSL cert - that is another story.
