Some forums require the purchase of a credit before a thread can be created. Here's how:

Clicking the "New Thread" button in a forum where thread purchase is required takes you to this screen:

<div style="border:solid;width:810px">
attachment.php
</div>Enter the desired number of threads to purchase and submit the form.
See section below on purchasing multiple threads.

<div style="border:solid;width:810px">
attachment.php
</div>Once you see this confirmation screen, click "Purchase".
This takes you to PayPal where you will enter your PayPal credentials.


<div style="border:solid;width:810px">
attachment.php
</div>Enter your PayPal username and password, and click the "Log On" button.

<div style="border:solid;width:810px">
attachment.php
</div>At the PayPal confirmation screen, click "Pay Now"

<div style="border:solid;width:810px">
attachment.php
</div>SUCCESS!

<div style="border:dashed;width:790px;padding:10px;">FINISH THE PURCHASE ==> Click the "Return to IAP / penturners.org" link and you'll be returned to the list of threads in the forum from which you initiated the purchase.

NOW, POST! ==> Click "New Thread" again, and you'll skip the payment screen and go directly to the usual new thread creation screen.</div>

<div style="border:solid;width:790px; padding:10px;">Notes on Purchasing Multiple Threads:

You may purchase up to 10 threads at one time for the forum you are posting in. If you buy multiple threads, you will be able to bypass the "Payment Required" screen when creating a new thread until your number of thread credits are used up. Be aware of the following:
  • Thread credits are unique to each classifieds forum. In other words, you cannot use two $5 credits to purchase a thread in the $10 forum.
  • Credits don't expire.
  • Your current thread credit status and purchase history is available here.
</div>
