Xenforo as a platform for new concept

    Hi I'm thinking of using Xenforo as the platform for a new startup concept. The basic idea is to put [ABC] in contact with [XYZ] through a public forum.

    If [ABC] and [XYZ] want to talk in a private messaging session then [ABC] can pay an agreed fee to [XYZ] through the site and the site takes a 10% commission on whatever fee is agreed.


    1. Is there any way of incorporating such transaction facility into the Xenforo framework? Any 3rd party plugins or similar that anyone could point me towards?

    2. Is it possible to configure Xenforo to censor contact details from forum posts (and possibly from private messages too), so as to stop users circumventing the site's transaction facility (and 10% fee)?

    Both of those would require custom development - I'm not aware of any existing third party add-ons which would do that.

    Thanks for the quick response, Brogan.

    Do you have any developers with whom you work, or who you can recommend?

    XenForo isn't affiliated with any third party developers so I wouldn't be able to recommend any particular one unfortunately.
