Hi. Every marketplace site should offer their vendors the option to feature their listing. This means that for a small fee, their listing can appear ahead of other listings in that category. The plugin should make this listing last a limited time; this option should appear at the end of the 'create a product listing' page. It should offer a (PayPal) payment option so that the vendor can pay for the featured listing. Once this is done, the listing should go live automatically. These listings should also ideally be automatically deleted from the system after the expiry date. Thanks.
This has been available on Etsy since they have also allowed large companies and non-handmade shops. This is one of the reasons people have left Etsy and in all honesty, I would not build my storefront on here if this is implemented. Just another Ad to pay on top of others and it brings up the price of what you pay in the first place, thinking that the $69 will give you what you want.
Hey! I think that listing would be awesome.

I'm already working on something very very similar as an externwal thing. Visit Unforge.co for progress - I figure about two to three weeks until launch?

I'd be interested in working on this w/my team.
This sounds like an ad platform. Are you referring to promoting your WC product on other WC stores as an ad? If so, wouldn't the "market place" have to optin?
