XF 2.2 Is it possible to use the resource manager as a store/marketplace?

Erin Nicole

I just purchased RM as my husband and I are starting up a business and he wants a forum/marketplace type site. I've used XF and IPB and we decided on XF because of the price.
I've never used RM so I didn't know that in order to purchase things directly on the site, you seem to need some kind of addon?

I found this which seems to do what we want/need: https://xenforo.com/community/resources/xfa-rm-marketplace-shop-xf2.6064/
My husband isn't going to be happy though about having to spend more money. He isn't a programmer/website developer or anything. So he is going to believe that RM should do this out of the box.

Are there tutorials out there so I can learn how to program something like this addon? I know it will take me a while, which is fine.

Is there a way to do this that I'm not seeing?

Any and all help is appreciated.
Many forums use forums/threads for classifieds. There are many advantages for doing this way, mostly that users are very familiar with threads and can more easily reply.

We are selling our own goods/services. We have a fish breeding and aquaculture selling business. We are only selling our own products and intend on using Stripe to process payments since we can use Apple/Google pay through that as well.
That shop thing doesn't lack anything.

I'm looking to learn so I could create my own version so we don't have to pay for that.
I'm looking as an alternative because my husband may not be ok with spending another $65 as he already thought $120 was expensive.
