    what you are after is Classipress. theres v 3 coming out end December early jan so you may want to wait as previous versions may not be able to be upgraded (it's a major overhaul)

    Looking forward to the v3 - got the developer licence but holding off projects until v3. Hopefully it will have better payment gateway support. From the updates v3:
    -Completely rebuilt and redesigned product backend and UI for a
    much cleaner and professional look
    -Featured ads module is larger and will use a jquery carousel that
    automatically rotates through your featured ads
    -Built in blog option so you can now post articles on your classipress site
    -User image editing. Your customers can now add, remove, or delete
    their images straight from their edit ad dashboard.
    -Ad details within WordPress post edit section are grouped together
    in a new "ad" module instead of down below as separate custom fields
    -Multi-step ad posting that shows a summary page before submitting a new ad
    -Tighter integration with PayPal
    -Set the number of image uploads allowed per ad submission
    -Ad package manager. Build your own ad packages (i.e. 30 days $5, 60 days $7, etc)
    so customers can get discounts for longer term commitments
    -Coupon code option. Promote your site by building and distributing
    special coupons.
    -PayPal subscription option to automatically
    -Email reminders sent to both you and the ad owner once an ad is set to expire
    -Ability to add your own custom fields
    -Better category displaying. There will be a new mega tab that will
    show all your categories which allows for growth
    -Replaced thumbnail image code with popular TimThumb. Easy to resize
    images to your own dimensions.
    -Less plugins required. A breadcrumb is now built into CP
    -Larger ad thumbnail images on the home and category pages.
    -Individual ad images are at the top of the ad which also includes
    a new image preview module.
    -Homepage now contains a right-hand sidebar with an "about your site" module
    -Contact poster sidebar module includes a bcc option so you know
    when ad posters are being contacted.
    -New poster's other items sidebar module shows what else is listed
    by the same owner. Includes a thumbnail image as well.
    -New similar items section shows other relevant ads to help promote
    your other listed items. Also includes a thumbnail image.
    -Cleaner sign-up and login page without a sidebar
    -Additional sidebars so you can have different widgets on your blog
    posts vs your ads
    -Enhanced comments section and ad poster styled comments. When the
    ad poster comments on the ad, it identifies him/her as the ad owner
    -RSS feeds available at the category-level
    -Record the ad poster's IP address with the submission
    -and much more!
