    I'm sure WP could easily create a listings directory that people could post to.

    I'm not sure of an easy way to force people to pay for the privledge.

    The only way I'd see that you could manage that is manually - make them pay for X number of listings, and keep track of them as they use them, then lock them out until they pay again or whatever...

    Maybe if you did it "unlimited for X months" or something...

    Either way, you'd need quite a bit of custom programming to accomplish what I think you'd want - WordPress would be a great foundation, however out of the box, it wouldn't give you the results you're looking for.

    It can be done, you just need to have new tables to manage the paid accounts after they register. You can have them send money to a paypal account and use paypal to return how much they have paid. If it meets the set balance for performing whatever action, their listing will be active and featured or whatever.

    You'll likely want the Role Manager plugin to help you out.
