using marketpress for member-member discounts

I'm looking for a plugin to use for member-member discounts for our club. Initially the idea is just to let people post their discounts but I'd like the ability for members to buy the item eventually.

Would this work or is there a better alternative?

Thanks
Lori

    Hi Lori,

    MarketPress coupons can be used for discounts on MarketPress products, if that'll work for you. Other than that, I imagine regular WordPress posts might work if your members will simply be posting discount offers from elsewhere, no?

    Cheers,
    David

    Wow, had a hard time replying to this. The "reply box" was so far down the page that I couldn't see it.

    Does it sound like overkill to use marketpress? I want members to be able to offer an X% discount on their services. With MP would they have to say our service costs" X$ and here is a coupon?

    My picture is that members create an account and add "posts" which are descriptions of the service and the offer.

    I could use custom posts but was hoping something was created already.

    Thanks
    Lori

    Hiya Lori,

    Yeah, it sounds like you'd only need marketpress if you want to provide for the actual purchasing to take place on the site. If they're going to link back to their own site/services and provide for the transaction there regular posts should be sufficient for them to provide that info.

    Does that help? Thanks!

Thank NAME, for their help.
