Can Magento do classified ads?

I’m looking for an ‘all in one’ solution to sell both self-service classified ads as well as more traditional items. The challenge with selling ads, of course, is collecting all the relevant data (probably an image, a logo, some text). If possible I’m hoping to avoid having 1 system for ads and another for ‘everything else’ and was wondering if Magento could handle such a challenge.

TIA for any thoughts.

This is possible to achieve using Magento but will require some customization.

Hi Adi,

Can you please through some light on what type of customization is necessary to sell classified ads in self-service mode and then display them in the store?

Thanks in advance!

Regards,
Adriano

Basically what I’m asking is if the customization can be done just by using current magento features or if the customization you refer must be based in a high number of specific new developments.

Hi Adriano,

Have been able to find any hints on this?

Are there any future plans to add classified ads to Magento?

Cheers

No, nothing…

Adi talked about the possibility but when I asked for details I haven’t got any answer.

Cheers

Hi Incognito

Am interested in this module. Basically, the requiremnts are as follows:
1. Allow both authenticated users and guests to post ads
2. Ads go into workflow, where they can automatically be published or admin publishes
3. Limit the number of images/videos that user can upload for a given ad
4. Integrate with payment system
5. allow users to manage their own ads, i.e. edit/delete etc
6. Make use of existing magento installation, including themes
7. Allow reviews, ratings for ads

And many more..

Actually, something like Adsmanager for Joomla would be cool on magento!

Do you think this is something that can be done? Can you give an estimate of the time?
