    Hi

    Is it possible to get a listing enhancement so the listing owner can pay to get his listing at the top of search results?

    Ie: top listing if you search by city or province

    Can this be accomplished by adding a query in the Custom Orderby Options in

    General Setup—>Advanced Search

    If so, what would be the query to show Featured listings first?

    Thanks

    gary listing which are set to ‘top of category’ are displayed at the top of category searches. a user searching for an item will find the most relevant first.

    The only problem is that categories are virtually irrelevant on my site. My listings are all for coin dealers, they will be searching for dealers nearby or in a particular area.

    The only relevent enhancement would be for listings at top of searches for a city or province,state

    Hi Harry

    Top of Category is a enhancement feature. You can find it in:
    Theme Options –> Listing Setup –> Listing Packages

    You can then assign it that people pay extra for it or you can include it in a package when you set up the package.

    Or you can go in the Admin back-end and edit the listing to make it Top of Category.

    Hope this helps.
