iLister Classified Script provides wonderful options to create, modify, customize, and edit the iLister-based classified website functionality easily via the user-friendly admin panel. To give our valuable customers more details, we’ve listed basic conceptions here.
The system gives an opportunity to classify listings. For this purpose, the website admin can divide listings into different types. It expands site possibilities (e.g., a site owner can sell houses and apartments on the same site) and increases its usability (listings will be arranged). Using ‘Listing Types’ the administrator can allow users to add classifieds of different types, make a complex search (a search by different types) and a search by a particular type.
Listing Type is a group of listings united according to common specific characters. Listing types allow the administrator create fields specific for a particular listing type. These fields will display the specific characteristics of a particular listing type. E.g., let's suppose you have two listing types in the system: House and Apartment. The listing field 'Price' will be common for the both listing types, the listing field 'Number of Floors' will be specific for the listing type 'House'.
Listing fields can be relevant to either a particular category or to all categories. The website administrator can specify it.
Listing common fields are fields common for all listing types. They are aimed to display the common characteristics of all listing types.

The system gives an opportunity to divide users into groups.
User group is a set of users that were assigned certain properties and membership plan(s). User group determines the way users from a group work with a site. Each group has its ID, group name, registration form template, description, user menu template and one or more membership plans. The administrator can create a set of profile fields for each group. User groups differ in set of membership plans and user group profile fields.
At the time of the registration process a user chooses a user group. The administrator can create as many user groups as he/she wants.

User common fields are fields common for all user groups. They are aimed to display the common characteristics of all user groups.
User group-specific fields are fields specific for a particular user group. They are aimed to display the specific characteristics of a particular user group.
Membership plans are model contracts for user subscription for the site services. Membership plan governs which of the site services are available to the user and what are the prices for these services. User can have only one subscription to one membership plan at a time. However, users can change membership plan when current subscription expires. Administrator can create as many membership plans as desired.
Membership plans are comprised of listing packages. The listing package is a model contract for a single listing. Listing package properties define the listing activation price, whether listing is featured, how long the listings remains active and other paid or free services available for use with the listing. Listing package is assigned to listing when listing is created.
Listing packages are alternatives that user can choose between when creating a new listing. User is offered only those packages that are included to the membership plan that user has selected for subscription.
The system gives an opportunity to create membership plans and packages.
Website administrator formulates membership plan terms – specifies name, price, type, amount of listings, expiration period and etc. A new membership plan has to be added to one or more User Group(s). Membership plans are tied up with user's profile and each user can select and use only one membership plan per profile.
Membership plans are used to define the ability for users to activate and re-activate listings. Two types of membership plans are available in the system: Fee Based and Subscription.
Fee Based allows to re-activate listings at any time while the membership plan is active. Fee Based membership plan expires but it does not de-activate the listings created under it. Subscription membership plan expires and de-activates all listings created under it.
For listing packages the website administrator defines the listing activation price, whether listing is featured, how long the listings remains active and other paid or free services available for use with the listing. Terms of listing packages can be applied to particular listings or to contracts.

"Your software (iLister) was easy to install and the admin area is easy to use. The pre-made template for the graphic design was a real life saver. It seemed expensive at first, but it is totally worth the price. I have had no maintenance issues."
"Thank your team for all your wonderful customer service and amazing job. There will probably be more customizations once people start using it and wanting more ideas so I will definitely be contacting you then...."
