Build an auctions marketplace with JomOffers 1.3

Comdev is excited to announce the next release of JomOffers, the online freelancer platform for Joomla.

JomOffers works in a similar way to popular freelancing sites such as Upwork and Freelancer; clients can sign up to create projects and job offers, accept bids and pay for work, while freelancers can offer their services, bid for projects and get paid for the work they complete. Paid memberships and escrow features are built in, opening up revenue streams for the JomOffers facilitator.

JomOffers is built on top of the Joomla platform, so features such as translations, tagging, social networking and theme customisation are provided out-of-the-box and will be familiar to all Joomla administrators. Powerful media management allows users to easily add videos and images to their listings for more impact.

New to 1.3 is a commission system where listing owners can deposit funds into JomOffers which they can then either release as a part payment or pay in full to the freelancer.
