Listbingo 2.0 is developed for Joomla 2.5 with improved features and concepts, that add up to its Joomla 1.5 predecessors - Listbingo 1.3.x and Listbingo 1.4.

In order to get your site up and ready for business - Listbingo incorporates several FREE addons and modules that come intact with the downloaded zip which helps you accomplish essential site functions such as Payment ways - PayPal, Messaging system - PMS and much more. There are several other addons which you can use as per your needs. You can find them here - http://www.gobingoo.com/marketplace/categories .

However, if you feel that the features provided by Listbingo and its addons/modules do not meet your requirements; feel free to contact us at - firstname.lastname@example.org. Our proficient developers can simply develop that feature for you.
Thanks to the developers for such a grate component.
there's no prof at all that they even got a v2, no beta or anything have been released.
Alot of people are very angry with listbingo, even on their facebook fan page.
I don't think listbingo got a v2, they are just saying it, to try to catch customers, witch is very sad. I cannot recommend listbingo to anyone, before v2 is being released (witch probably never will happen)
soon no more support for joomla 1.5, and you will have a unsecure classified system.
to mention: it is the best classified system for joomla, but it's not worth the money, running an old system.
SO: DO NOT BUY THIS, untill at least v2 is released.
Listbingo 2.0 is currently undergoing quality testing. The development has been long been completed, but being a classified component of size more than 2MB, the release is taking longer than expected. We are working rigorously to ensure top notch quality in the upcoming version of Listbingo. Please bear with us for a little while, your wait will be worth. We'll provide Listbingo 2.0 to all subscribed users, therefore those who are in fear of their subscription being expired recently, please do not worry. We won't deprive you of this state-of-art product.
Best of luck to the developers.
I just wanted to point out & say thanks for the wonderful & amazing support, I have been supported by gobingoo for a while now and I really don't know what to say.... they are one of the best I have ever seen, every time I contact them for support they solve my problems within few hours even on weekends they where there for me.
many thanks again for the brilliant team work.
Other things to look at is that you can't password admin with .htaccess as addons use admin folders. I asked for refund as I did pay for this and they reclined.
And the developers who are working on it are brilliant, great job guys…you have developed great component. They provide excellent customization service. They understoond all my requirements and added it to my site.And to those Guys who are blaming the Support team, I am sure that u have never been worked with them cause I never find such fast & best support in any joomla extensions which im working with.
I personally recommend all those people who want to make classified sites to use this extension. It meets most of requirements which a classified site needs. And it looks really nice.
Support has been fantastic much more than I had expected, I always get everything solved within 24hours and I'm using the free version!!!
I used sobi previously but I could never get it to look as nice as this with such little effort.
5 Stars for Product and Support.
Do not buy anything from these guys!
A year ago I bought this extension with addons - all year long, I just did it that found some errors/issues in the extension (such as image loading errors, errors in packages,.. and moch more). Because of these constant errors I have not started the project. Last error - after the premium package expired, which contains images, the client can take free-package, which has no image included, but the all old images will still be reflected..
I reported this to support at the end of September 2011, at the beginning of December I was told that within two weeks will correct the error. Now mid-January, my subscription has ended - and from support is no answer. All tickets are blocked, I have no access now (!!) - I wrote them a mail in order to renew my subscription - no response received.
More greater impudence and brazen as these guys, I've never met.
The non-commercial version (1.3.9) is a Skeleton without nothing. Please note you can't use it in production. By nothing I mean, no cart, payment, no nothing, no review plugin, no support at all : they don't care..., just pay minimun Usd 199 first and maybe they will reply...!
And read all their website before buying, because only the 1.4 version includes the necessary functionalities, to get a reliable site, on production. The 1.3.9 release is only a version they use to do marketing and get visiblity from Joomla website ! It's a scandal !
Read carefully, their terms and conditions, because if your Listbingo site doesn't work, they will just reply : this is a problem of compatibility with your Joomla extensions or plugins ! So to speak, if you want Lisbingo to work, just forget and leave all your installed Joomla plugins...
About the performance, the application is very very very slow. Just review the "real blue" demo site : Based on Yslow tool, the site is grade D, and the score is 67/100. It means very very bad. Total weight of page : 1475.5K - HTTP request 97. This is too much ! Above all Listbingo doesn't have caching systems ! I am sorry but it is not serious at all. Try 100,000 listings and if you get a reply within 2 seconds, I'm wrong. For sure it will take around 10 seconds...
This is very important to mention the following issues : you have to purchase minimum Usd 199 to get the professional version, and you have to buy addons also, minimum Usd 200 to get the main functionalities. You will waste your time and money because of the incompatibility with your extensions !
However, I did have an issue with the price field that was not showing on edit ad, I submit a query through their forum but never got any response from the support team, only 3 users (like me) who add some comments and try to guide me through the issue but its only by searching through the other forum topics that I could find a proper solution for my issue.
One of these users pointed something to me, the Gobingoo team does not provide any support for this free (non-commercial) version but only provide support for the commercial one (version 1.4 pro) and if you want to get any support for the non-commercial one, even for a tiny issue, you must buy a support subscription.
In fact, we can understand this as everyone need to have a living and offering everything for free is not good at all for any business, but Gobingoo also offers paid addons for Listbingo that you need to pay to install to the main component but even though you have paid for these addons, they do not provide any support for these! They force you to buy the support subscription to get some support, what a shame for such good classified tool!
As per my knowledge, Joomla was developed by many volunteers to create some kind of CMS community so that anyone can easily build a website but with such extension, they are just breaking this community motivation.
I review this extension to be very poor not because of the extension itself as it is a perfect tool that merits 10/10 but with such support team, the extension really has no value as they have developed something and then just leave developers and joomla newbies on their own which is not fair at all for such worldwide community.
But nothing comes any where close to list bingo.
I could see lot of effort bean done.
And yet the component is free.
I am not used to writing reviews still i waste my time & write this review,because some one has called this component a scandal.
How do people get something for free and still comment so badly.
I am very thankful for this and vow to pay for it later one day.
I hope everyone will get a lesson from these.
My friend (the developer, who I tried to contact in a message as well whihout answer) you can protest or answer what you want below are facts:
- My first problem was, that I couldn't translate the yes/no radio buttons by showing contact information by posting a new ad. Many people had the same problem and post in your forum hopelessly as nobody got an answer. I worked on this two days to find a solution. I have translated all the Jtext yes/no words and all in xml files as well. No results. I chosed to delete that div where this row was found, so I take big breath and went on..
- I have translated what I could and set up as I wanted (filled up SQL with the list of the cities of my country, etc.), then tried to post an ad. BUT image upload doesn't work. I found that the library wasn't automatically created, but problem still exists. Then looked at in the forum. Again several posts in the topic most of them without answer some of them with trials but whitout succes.
- And as if it wouldn't be enough Captcha neither works. I chosed gobingoo math captcha and belive me I can add 5+20 but I got the message that it's invalid.
I have given up.
Dear friends who choose this component I don't say not to chose this as it seems from the reviews there are people who can use it (anyay I don't know how), but before you make any efforts with customization, please try these.
Dear developer, really no words, no words...
