    Hello guys,

    I would like to have some sort of a marketplace section on my forum where users can buy/sell and most importantly trade.

    I have a memorabilia forum, where collectors want to trade their stuff with one another.

    Memorabilia is usually organized in collections.

    For instance, lets imagine that that you have a sports figures that you want to trade. Those sports figures belong to a collection "Random Sportfigures collection". Each of the figures has its own number 1-150.

    Here is how it usually works :
    You post a topic naming it "Random Sports Figures collection"
    And write something like :
    "I have : 4,5,6,15,25,45,98"
    and I need 74,96,112,113,150"

    This can obviously look pretty unorganized. So is there any trade manager, or anything that can help people out trading?

    How do you organize your marketplace sections?

    Best way is just to make a new forum node called Marketplace. Add a sticky regarding rules, and let it run. Look at the implementation of successful ones at places like fred miranda, potn, photocamel.
