ClassifiedsPlus uses credits based packages/plans for bulk purchasing of ads (1 credit = 1 ad). Credits packages/plans can be one time purchases or subscription based billing(monthly or annual).
A highly configurable custom fields functionality is what sets ClassifiedsPlus apart from other classifieds scripts. You can create category-related custom fields, define which custom fields can be used in search filters, define which custom fields show in the listings results, organize custom fields in groups and much more.
Custom fields types
The field types below are used on the listing creation form:
Numeric (decimal, integer)
Custom fields groups
Custom fields groups
Organize your custom fields in groups to provide more context to visitors viewing the single listing page. You can configure the group order and field order for even more possibilities.

Required and searchable custom fields
Each custom field can be defined as required. It’s also possible to specify whether the field shows on the sidebar as a filter on the results/category pages.
When defining a custom field as search filter, you can specify the type of filter you want. Available types are:
Show custom fields on listings results cards
Define whether custom fields should show in the listings cards on search results pages. For even more customization, you can specify whether to show only the field’s icon, only the field’s name or both. Hard to beat this level of customization!

Bootstrap based design
ClassifiedsPlus uses the Bootstrap 4 layout grid, its components and utilities and it has a very neutral theme that can easily adapt to several business types. This also makes it easy for third party designers to make layout modifications because they only need to be familiar with the Bootstrap framework.
Monetize Your Site
Flexible pricing plans allows you to create one time payments as well as monthly and annual recurring subscriptions.
ClassifiedsPlus comes with a simple blog system that allows you to create blog posts and pages and uses the popular TinyMCE wysiwyg editor. You can define whether to show a post in the feed, if not, it will be a stand alone page.
ClassifiedsPlus supports multiple map providers: Mapbox, HERE, TomTom, Wikimedia, OpenStreetMap and Google Maps. You can choose one or multiple ones. If you select multiple map providers ClassifiedsPlus will randomly select one on every page load. Useful if you want to take advantage of the free usage quotas of multiple map providers.
Allow ad owners to create coupons for deals and discounts. Users can browse all coupons available on the site.
Fast Loading Times
ClassifiedsPlus was designed with loading speed in mind. All pages load fast, including the admin area which will almost never show you spinning animations that impact your productivity.
