To be frank, the dev on the software has not really been to my satisfaction, and our tech partners know that.  But I cannot personally change that all by my lonesome, or even by hiring my own developers.  Such is the downside of working with a tech partner, the upside being security, platform stability, a API, apparently in the works, so that we can build a styleforum app, etc...

Even then, the strength of our B&S system is not going to be the interface.  It's the wide open format alongside the community.  Sort of like Craigslist, but with the safety of a much more connected community, which makes reputation much more meaningful.  If you interact with people every day for discussion, you don't want to be the dude who lowballs everyone, or who is always out to get the very highest price out of your fellow forumites, or be the dude who backs out of every deal, etc...

Something like Grailed is good for one off sales, but there is no provision for the big sellers, who like a place like Styleforum because it essentially allows for massive numbers of listings with minimal work, and essentially at no financial cost unless you are trying to move a large amount of goods in a short time.  For a single item seller, a high ROI is not as likely.

One other thing that I am trying to partner with someone with (we've been talking for a few monthes now) is real cashbacks.  No "credit" or whatever, though that may be available as well.  I have no interest in locking people in by only giving credits.  Of course, if you want a credit and/or to waive returns, then that would be reflected in the amount you get back, because it would shift more risk to the buyer, which would make the cost to us lower, and would be something we'd be happy to pass on.

End of the day, we do want to make money, but we want to do so in non-exploitative ways that actually benefit the members of the community, because unlike a lot of other "community" businesses.  Maybe that's because Styleforum started as a community, not a way to cash in on "filling a niche".

How about being able to sticky (for lack of a better term) an item you're selling to a particular thread. That way people browsing a particular thread could be shown relevant items. The seller could also pay a small fee to have it more heavily promoted in their stickied thread.

That way you get relevant products shown on relevant threads, which is great for both buyers and sellers.

that would devolve discussion threads into buy-sell threads

An "ugly clothes" and "absurd prices" filter would also be great.

It's pretty much all that I look for, so, possible?

It's an interesting way to integrate discussions with product, and I can think of cool ways that it could be done, but right now, the dev resources are not there.  What you can do is promote your B&S in your sig.  I would recommend that people use that.

It's possible, but improbable, if you have decent implementation, like a carousel (that way, no items would dominate).  We already allow users to advertise their B&S items in their posts - a feature we've had since 2011) and that has not seemed to really adversely affect the forum discussion.  That said, the dev resources are not there to do that.
