    To help organize our marketplace section, TMC is using Panjo.

    TMC Marketplace

    Some benefits:

    • Easy to post new items for sale.
    • Drag and drop uploading of images (something I wish the rest of the forum had).
    • Automatically creates a thread in the appropriate forum.
    • Automatically adds "- Sold" to thread title when items are sold.
    • Option to list a quantity of items.
    • Sellers paid by directly by PayPal
    • Buyers can pay for items with a credit card (processed by Paypal).
    • Ability to browse items via image gallery or in a list with sorting and filtering options.
    • Buyers can review order history
    • Platform is being actively developed (e.g. other currency options are due this week).

    Some Limitations:

    • No ability to simply relist an item after it's sold. (on the product roadmap)
    • Pages are a bit slow to render.
    • Doesn't work 100% with Chrome on iOS due to the Apple restricting javascript.
    • Has its own messaging system which can seem a bit redundant.

    I've been testing this for the past few weeks and I think overall the benefits outweigh the drawbacks, so please give it a try.
