In my opinion it has all the basic features required in Classified ad website, but the is nothing special. There are only 5 different themes available. The script is available in two different packages, Multiple license package is for $499 and Source code License package is available for $299.

3. ClassiPress

Its easy to use and there are many customization options. Its also compatible with your smartphone and tabs. Classipress is premium WordPress theme and is available for $99.

Please note that ClassiPress is a WordPress theme, so you first need to install WordPress on your web hosting server.


Classified Ad website is a good business concept, but there is too much competition in Online Classified Ad. I would suggest you to create a Classified Ads Website for a specific area first and if you get good response then you can add other area to your website.

There are many classified ad script available for free. These free classified ad script come with less features and are not Seo friendly.
