Pay to post

You can earn extra if you activate the pay to post feature on your classified site. Users will pay to publish an advertisement. It’s simple, you just have to choose the payment On option, then whenever someone wants to post an ad on your page, they’ll have to pay in advance.

 Another feature that you can activate is the payment with moderation. With it, your users will pay to publish an ad, however, you can moderate the ad before it becomes visible on your site.

Paid Categories

Another way of earning money is on classified sites. Creating paid categories can benefit you in many ways, one of which is an additional fee for specific categories. With Yclas, you can choose some categories where your users will have to pay to post ads. (Read more: How to add categories and manage theme )

Move to top or feature the ad

Exposure is essential with classified ads. You can charge extra for displaying a classified ad on the top of listings. Visitors always check out the first results that appear, thus your users can make sure that buyers will notice their product. With us, your users can get better exposure by paying for moving their ad to the top or highlighting it by making it featured.

Subscriptions / Memberships

Another great way to improve your earnings is by adding subscriptions or memberships. You can create daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly subscriptions for your classified site. Here you can find more information about this feature. Read more about the features that you get with us
