The Story

Our team started working on Open Classifieds because of our passion for open source software and building tools that enable people to start their own business. What started as software with only a handful of people has turned into a strong community of supporters and users. After four years of part time work, we have finally decided to to pursue Open Classifieds full time.

We frequently receive requests from our users asking for certain improvements and enhancements. One request we receive often is to integrate a new plugin system which would enrich the software and make an even more powerful tool. A tool that could get any everyday person to start their own business and any developer to add their creative ideas to the software.

The plugin system allows integrating new software components that add features to Open Classifieds. This supports easily adding features and enables developers to create abilites that extend the software.

Plugin system integration — $4,000

When we reach this goal we will be able to add a plugin system, this system will add limitless possibilities to the software and enable it to be a much better platform for online business creation

Import/export tool — $5,000

By reaching our first stretch goal we will have enough funding to add an import/export tool, which makes it much easier for a user to migrate to Open Classifieds if they already have their website set up using a different script.

Extra payment gateways — $7,000

Currently, Open Classifieds supports Paypal as a payment method, but if we reach our second stretch goal we will add Stripe and Paymill to the list of available payment gateways.

In this case the user will have more options and will have a greater possibility of success for their business.
