Reviews

Excellent plugin!

Best classified plugin/theme ive ever used! Not that many features BUT more than enough to run a really nice and clean classifieds section on your website. Plugin comes with a very good selection of shortcodes and is extremely easy to use.

Oustanding plugin & support

As a 10 year veteran to classifieds of a script outside of WordPress, I can honestly say that this plugin and the support I get from it is outstanding!

This plugin provides all of the basic classifieds functionality I’m looking for. Support on WordPress, and through their site support system is professional, timely and concise.

I look forward to watching and helping it evolve over time and will gladly purchase extensions for this already great plugin!

I anticipate this will become the best WordPress classifieds plugin, and trust me when I tell you, I’ve tried a few and stayed away from WordPress to convert my old site because of it! This one removed my hesitance.

Well done, keep up the good work!
