As of September 2015, the Panjo marketplace mod for vBulletin has been completely rearchitected.

You can learn more about the latest version of the mod on Panjo's vBulletin partner page.

This mod enables you to launch a peer-to-peer community marketplace that is integrated into your vBulletin forum.

Here is how it works:
1) Install the plugin.
2) Customize the categories you want in your marketplace.
3) Contact Chad at Panjo: chad@panjo.com to activate your marketplace.
4) When a seller goes to a new or old subforum dedicated to buying/selling/trading, and clicks on the "post new thread" button, the mod will load a listing creation form.
5) The seller will create a listing. The listing will appear in the marketplace. A synchronized copy of the listing will appear in the appropriate buy/sell/trade subforum.

Is this plugin free?
Yes, this plugin is free.

Can you make money with this plugin?
Yes, you can optionally use this plugin to generate marketplace transaction revenue.

How is it with mobile?
The marketplace loads with layouts that are optimized for high res desktop, tablet, and mobile.

Examples:
Porsche Marketplace <syncs with> Porsche classifieds subforum
BMW Marketplace <syncs with> BMW classifieds subforums
Audi Marketplace <syncs with> Audi classifieds subforums
Belly dancing marketplace <syncs with> Belly dancing classifieds subforums

Gallery:

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.
Paypal does have an on page checkout now, Any chance if you guys can mod a version to use this method I would be very interested in purchasing, my filmmaking community is looking for a for sale section badly

We will see what we can do. We desire to move as much functionality under the vBulletin umbrella as possible while keeping the system PCI (payment card industry) compliant. The issue is the triangulation between the vBulletin platform, SSL, and browsers.

Today we are excited to release a massive update to the Enthusify marketplace plugin for vBulletin. Below find a list of 35 new features and fixes. A major thanks goes out to the thousands of buyers and sellers who use the tools and give us a steady flow of feedback. Thanks also to the many forum owners who tell us how we can help them improve service, grow revenue, increase engagement, and eliminate disputes.

Want to take the plugin for a test drive? Download it here and email info@enthusify.com for an activation code.

*) Significantly updated the listing creation process.
Added a “Step 4” which is exclusively about how payment is collected and transferred.
Sellers can choose between collecting payment via Enthusify or on their own.
Sellers can now edit their PayPal email address.
Sellers can optionally provide us with feedback if they don’t use Enthusify to process payment.
Coming soon: Sellers will be able to opt into immediate payment transfer if they use Enthusify.
*) Sellers can use the “enter” key in the descriptions to start a new line.
*) Added a toggle to “My Active/Sold Listings” for moderators to switch between all the items for sale, and just their own.
*) If a thread is generated for a new listing, the “Listing is Live” email also links to the thread.
*) If an admin visits the “Who’s Online” page, the location column will say “Enthusify Plugin” for users that are in the marketplace.
*) Made more updates to the listing creation process. (Improved the workflow / clarity)
*) Updated the “Success” page that sellers see when they successfully create an item.
*) Updated the email the seller receives when his item sells. References where the seller is in the process and what to do next.
*) New users can now set their Enthusify account emails when they connect from the forum.
*) Improved how users can switch between an item’s multiple images
*) Added a “Report Item” tool below the item description.
When someone clicks this, an Enthusify staff member will receive a notification email.
*) Added “Advanced Search” to the marketplace.
Users can now filter out listings without images, listings that are sold, and listings that are live.
Users can sort listings by post date, price, and Item title.
*) Buyers can now specify their forum username when placing a purchase.
*) Modified the “Mark As Sold” feature for improved insight into marketplace behavior.
*) Modified the “Cancel Listing” feature for improved insight into marketplace behavior.
*) The search filter “Show listings without images” is now unchecked by default.
*) Improved how the plugin resizes if the window size changes.
*) Admins can now ban users from accessing the marketplace based off of email address.
*) Admins can now ban users from accessing the marketplace based off of I.P Address.
*) Fixed a bug where feedback appears multiple times if a user has connected to more than one marketplace.
*) All the pages that are accessed from the “My Marketplace Tools” button now open in the same window instead of a new window.
*) Added a paid promotion option that lets users link keywords in the forum to their listing.
*) Added search functionality and pagination to the “My Listings” page.
*) Added a badge in various parts of the marketplace that lets buyers know if a listing comes with Enthusify’s buyer protection.
*) Added a new search filter that limits results to listings using Enthusify’s buyer protection.
*) Updated the security of the page where sellers create listings.
*) Added a badge that proves we are SSL certified by GoDaddy to our checkout pages and listing creation.
*) Fixed a one-time bug for users that connect the same email to multiple Enthusify marketplaces.
*) Fixed a bug that left a space for the item image on the checkout page, even when the item has no image.
*) The “forum username” field can now be used to match purchases with connected user accounts.
Useful for leaving feedback and for the upcoming “My Orders” page.
*) Fixed a bug where users wouldn’t see any results if they made a search that returned fewer result pages than the amount of pages they had already navigated.
*) Fixed a bug where edits to listings by mods reassigned the owner of the automatically generated thread.
*) Fixed a bug where purchases of offers did not reflect the offer price if the payment was not being processed by Enthusify.
*) Sellers can now collect payment with Enthusify and receive a buyer’s payment on the same day.
To do this, they need to authorize a valid credit card.
This is reflected in all the communication buyers and sellers receive surrounding a listing.
*) If a thread is generated for a new listing, the success page will now link to the newly created thread.

We are looking at this product as it looks very nice and you guys have been great with keeping it up to date.

Question regarding profits... I need a bit more clarification on how conmission is being collected here. Examples

If a members decides to place an item for sale and chooses to collecte via paypal only do you guys charge a fee for that transaction since paypal is already chargeing a fee?
If a member chooses to sell an item and only accepts CC like Visa and discover how does he get paid once the buyers pays with his CC and does that cost the seller 10% of the sale for you
Guys to process that payment for them? Out of the 10% we (the forum owner) gets 5% of that correct?

Just trying to figure out the overall expense because if the seller only accepts Visa and how much does this end up costing the seller, can you give a break down on the fees

Seller is selling an item for $100 and only accepts paypal ?

Seller is selling an item and only accepts major CC card?
How does the seller get paid?
What are the charges to process and sell the $100 item
When does the seller get paid?
What is the refund process and what protection does the buyer have?

To put the following answers in context I should note one thing first. At this time, the Enthusify plugin just has a "final value fee" revenue collection/generation feature. Listing fee and promotion fee features are coming soon. In fact if you visit one of our partners today, you are bound to see us testing those forthcoming features.

If a members decides to place an item for sale and chooses to collect a buyer's payment via PayPal, Enthusify does not charge the buyer or seller a fee for that transaction. The seller creates the listing for free. The buyer pays the listing price to the seller via PayPal. PayPal collects their fees.

If a member chooses to have Enthusify collect, verify, and transfer the buyer's payment to the seller, then the seller will incur Enthusify's 3% final value fee and whatever fee you the forum owner add to that. Let's say you want to collect 2% from every successful transaction, then, when a seller sells a $100 item, the seller will get $95, Enthusify will get $3 (most of which goes to credit card interchange fees, and the forum owner will get $2.

Enthusify transfers the seller's $95 to the seller via PayPal (fee free), check, or direct deposit.

Seller will get: $96.80

Seller will get: $97.00 (assuming the forum is NOT charging a surcharge)

See above.

If a seller collects payment from a buyer via PayPal, Enthusify does not offer any dispute resolution service or protection.

If a seller collects payment from a buyer via Enthusify's payment processing service, then Enthusify offers dispute resolution and full refund protection for up to 14 days. A buyer can extend the 14 day protection period by notifying Enthusify that there is an issue. You can review our terms of service (see section 11) to learn how we handle different kinds of disputes that may arise.

vBulletin classifieds plugin gets major update

Bug fixes:
  1. Fixed a conflict with the plugin “The Image Resizer” that prevented the “Buy Now” button in the thread post versions of the listings from connecting a buyer to the checkout page.
  2. Fixed a bug where the “list view” and “grid view” buttons sometimes didn’t work
  3. Fixed a bug that impacted the loading location of 'lightboxes' for rare browser/screen resolution situations.
  4. Fixed a bug that asked some sellers to connect their PayPal account even if the seller was not using Enthusify to collect, verify, and transfer payment.
  5. Fixed a rare rounding error in “Item Has Sold” emails that sellers receive.
  6. Fixed an issue that was blocking the thread post versions of seller's listings due to title limits, image upload limits, or character limits.
  7. Fixed an issue that was placing the thread post versions of seller's listing in the moderation queue by the built-in vBulletin moderation filters. This fix does not necessarily address moderation filters from third-party plugins.
New features:
  1. You can now subscribe to automatic updates for future releases of the Enthusify vBulletin plugin. Today, if Enthusify releases a feature with tight vBulletin integration, it often requires a vBulletin admin to update the plugin. With the auto update feature, you automatically get the latest version of the vBulletin plugin and always benefit from the latest features and bug fixes. With this enhancement, Enthusify can now deploy features you requested to more tightly integrate the marketplace into vBulletin without any administrative overhead on your part.
  2. We added a toggle to the “Enthusify Settings” to allow you to opt out of Automatic Updates.
  3. We added a link in the “Listing Details” to the corresponding thread for that item in the forum.
  4. New users can now hit “enter” to connect their account once they submit their email. Previously a user had to click the continue button with a mouse click.
  5. We increased account registration security. We eliminated a feature that allowed a member of two forums on the Panjo network to connect his/her account without email verification. The lack of an email verification step could have resulted in a nefarious user finding a way to compromise a seller's listings.
  6. The Postbit link option in the “Enthusify Settings” has been significantly improved.
  7. The "Items for sale" link in a member's postbit template only displays if a member has an item listed for sale in the marketplace.
  8. Existing sellers will need to cancel, mark as sold, sell an item, or list something new for sale in order for their link to activate.
Please keep your input coming. We love delivering the features you request.
