Starting a new community but need advice

    Hello... I used to run a community using vB but I ended up not caring for it too much. I like Xenforo but it must be worth the $$ for what I am trying to accomplish. I want to start a new community. I am not sure if WordPress or a forum platform would be the way to go about it. This is what I want to accomplish:

    1. I want to allow members to have their own page or section where they can post a gallery of products that they are selling with info and price... however, they will not actually be selling products via the website. They will private message with potential customers to discuss transactions.
    2. I also want to be able to charge the sellers an automatic monthly subscription fee to continue listing their items while the prospective customers (other regular members would be free).

    Any suggestions and or ideas on how to put this community together? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Who are you planning to target? What niche? Facebook marketplace communities are killing any potential competition. If you're going to have something super unique I can see how it may end up being ok, other than that I am really skeptical. If you're concerned about the price of Xenforo (which is not that high) how are you going to spin your site out? I gather you will have spend something on paid advertising at least initially.
