    Open Source Classified Ad Manager

    Hi again,

    This is a related thought to a topic I posted earlier today. I've been looking for an open source classified ad management script that would allow me to charge users to post an ad. I've seen a few systems out there, but nothing that allows for integration with PayPal (or similar service) to charge for ad postings.

    Can anyone point me in the direction of some open source (or free/low cost closed source) software that has this functionality?

    I wanted to comment about the open/closed source part. Were you thinking that "open source" and "free" were equivalent terms?
    (sometime people do)

    No, I know that open source and free do not go hand in hand. I prefer open source software so I can modify it if needed, but in this case, if I need a closed source product, I can go with that.
