    The classifieds sub forum on my site is getting out of control, so I'm looking for a classifieds type script that I can make subscription based. Kind of a pay to sell type of deal. This will help cut back on the spamming and limit it to serious sellers.

    Any recommended scripts/software?

    That looks pretty good. Only thing missing is a feedback type feature

    Very true, but the only problem is I'm sure it would cost me more than $200 to have it coded for me than to buy a package with what I'm looking for.

    What exactly are you looking for? You just want people to pay you for posting something in the classifieds section? I can set that up for like 75 bucks. It's as simple as getting a paypal api class and working with it. i do it for some of my sites. And as for the actual classifieds section, that's just simple php/mysql.

    Basically what i'm looking for would be:

    - Subscription based ad posting (tiered - basic & member services)
    - accounts (username/login used from my current forum)
    - Feedback system (like itrader)
    - Categories
    - Ability to add images to the ad

    Not looking to implement that soon. I'm in the middle of another conversion process, so was thinking for towards end of 1st Qtr. , but wanted to start researching.

    If you spend some time learning CCK + Views in Drupal, you could do most all of that w/o touching any code, and installing a couple additional modules.
