  • I have imposed a new requirement today limiting who can start and receive private conversations. This is in an effort to thwart scammers who have a zero post count but private message others offering to sell their licenses. The restriction is not strict, a user must post at least one (1) post in the forum before being allowed to start and/or receive private conversations. Read Forum Post

Introducing the Classified System


Staff member
We are pleased to introduce a new way to buy, sell and trade on Extra License. Introducing, Classifieds.

Before I go into details, keep in mind that this system is still in the beat phase, so there may be some bugs that need worked out. If you encounter a bug, please report it in our bugs Forum.

Now on to the features. When you are creating a listings, you will have to choose what you want to do. If you want to sell XenForo, choose: Selling XenForo

Next, Fill in all the required information like the title and description:

The next section details the license options such as if there is a transfer fee, who pays for the transfer fee and expiration date:

Next, you will be asked for a Price. In this example, how much are you selling the XenForo license for.
Choose the package you want. For normal licenses, there are 2 different packages to choose from: Basic and Premium. More on those below. Finally, upload and photos if you want and click Create Classified.

The Packages. The Basic package is free to list any license. The advert duration is 30 days, meaning the listing will only be active for 30 days, however you have unlimited renewals if your license is bought, sold or traded within those 30 days.

The Premium Package Duration is 120 days and cost $10.00 to list any license. Buy purchasing the Premium Listing, your listing will automatically be featured and listed first before any of the Basic Listings. Again, you have unlimited renewals but each renewal will cost $10.00.

Once your listing is created, it will automaticall create a thread in the corresponding forum with the proper prefix.
Here is a view from the Classifieds index page as well as the details of the controls you have over your listing:

Offering Web Hosting? I haven't forgot about you guys. There is a hosting section with it's own Package. You can still offer your hosting here to our members, but it is going to cost you to do so. The Hosting package will cost you $5.00 per 30 days. There are no renewals with this package so if you wish, you may create a new listing every 30 days for $5.00.

In closing, I hope you like the new format and encourage you to create your listings (if you have one currently in the forum) in the classifieds section.

Manage your own Listings. When you have sold your license, mark your listing as sold:


Or When you have Bought your license, Mark as Bought:

I should point out that this system is in beta and there are many more functions to come. Specifically, since I received a report about it, when you purchase a "Featured" classified, there will be an area above the classified list that will display, more prominently, featured classifieds. Currently this is not implemented but coming soon ;)
