Auction Factory
This soft is not native for Joomla 1.5. It is written for Joomla 1.0 and is supported with 1.5 in legacy mode. I installed it from a new Joomla 1.5, but it was not very stable from the beginning. Couple of bugs has been fast repaired. Templates are complex to use if you are not a programmer, and update scripts are also not very "easy" to use. You will need to use the forum to understand how it works ;-) There is no real update solution, only if you reinstall all (I've lost all my data the first time I installed a new version). The idea of this soft is good, support is sometime aggressive... Good point is people there take your ideas then integrate them in the soft.
Owner's reply

The "Auction Factory gpl club vesion" is a native Joomla 1.5 product where the support is limited only on the forum, since the GPL version addresses mostly to developers, while for the Joomla Community we are offering other software versions, with extended support on ticket system and even installations, etc.

Also you wanted to have extended features like templates, payment processing, upgrade script, etc. (for less money) which are only available in other versions, not the gpl club version, fact which is been very clearly explained on our pages.

PaidSystem for AdsManager
Very easy to use, very good support (Thanks for it). Just a wish... would like to adapt this option for customers use (Like "Buy It Now"), to be able for users to pay ads easily to other users.

I tried a few softs (when it was possible to try them...) and AdsManager is the best I found.

Was installed on Joomla 1.0 and 1.5 without any problem. Of course, it is just in Beta and some important tools has to be improved (email forms, gmap, and esthetically details we can not modify easily), but after intensive tests, my web site based on this soft is 80% on ! Great job.
