The ClassiPress theme only comes with a single premium add-on by default, which is the featured ads slider on the homepage, and as a classified site owner, we are pretty sure you would be interested in more ways to monetise your website. The CP Premium Add-ons plugin will allow you to create packages of different visual enhancements and offer them to your customer for a fee that is set by you for a period that you will decide. The built in visual enhancements, or “presets” are:
- Background Highlight: Choose any colour for highlighting ads.
- Ribbon Image: Allows you to upload and display any image on an ad at any position.
- List Top: Allows you to display ad on top of category page, search page, and homepage.
You can “mix and match” the aforementioned enhancements as part of your add-on, and give your customers full value for their money. For example you can charge your customers for a single add-on that will display their ad at the top of search results as well as have a “Top Ad” ribbon and a background highlight, or if you wish, have three different add-ons for each of the enhancements. You can also create different add-ons with exactly the same presets, charge them based on different timeframes. For example, you can have a “Top Ad 30 Days” set to run for for $10, and a cheaper option “Top Ad 1 Week” set to run for just 7 days for $3, giving your customers the same enhancements, just for different time periods.
Then, there is a small matter of associating the add-ons with membership or ad packages. We have got you covered here as well. Just add a list of comma separated IDs or membership packs or ad packs in the plugin settings and see them automatically applied when ads are posted as a part of packages.
- No limits to how many add-ons you can create.
- Add-ons can have their own prices.
- Add-ons can have their own duration.
- Add-ons can be selected and paid for during ad posting or re-listing process.
- Auto apply add-ons based to ads based on author IDs, ad pack IDs, or membership pack IDs.
- Built in visual enhancements like “background highlight”, “ribbon image”, or “top of list”.
- Possible to offer the same enhancements for different durations for different prices.
- Apply or remove add-ons on ads on the fly from the admin panel.
- Three sample add-ons when you install the plugin: “Urgent Ad”, “Top Ad” and “Highlight Ad”.
- Possible to create more enhancements using code.
- Export, import, or reset settings.
- Compatible with ClassiPress 3.5.2+.
