    Selling categories....

    I am working on something (think gumtree...) and just want people's ideas on the "types" of categories for users to place their adverts in.

    I currently have:

    # Baby Goods
    # Clothing
    # Computers
    # Electricals
    # Gaming
    # Home goods
    # Misc (goods that don't fit in above categories)
    # Mobiles
    # Travel

    Is there something you would add or delete?

    thanks

    yes but as you see with this site its too common to fit in entertainment. people would have a better user experience if it was separate

    How about a entertainment section but with a splinter section for blu rays e.g.

    entertainment
    - Dvd's
    - blu ray's
    - cd's
    - misc

    Have a look at the ebay categories

    I would need to look into ways to make this work
    1. Users pay a small fee to get access (but anyone can use paypal)
    2. I get users DOB on registration (but anyone can fake it)
    3. Users need to have xx posts and request access to it (no idea on how old people are still)

    Does anyone have a valid way I can restrict the adult section fully?

    p.s I don't wanna copy ebay as they just have way to many categories.... This is a smaller and non auction based

    sport ???

    Music ??

    Never said copy ebay, just select the ones you want...

    Music is in entertainment under cd's (and records, tapes etc can go in the misc for the section)

    What do you mean by sport? Sports accessories? I will put a leisure section

    Toys should have its own catagory

    I dont think asking for payment as this will put people off listing, to be honest i think it has to be based on trust & option 3.

    It would put the "kids" off getting access, but would it make it more secure for legit people to sell their goods?

    Think I am going to go with number 3 as I can read through the persons previous posts to see if they would be trusted!

    thanks
