Are there any add-ons to ubbt to support trader 'eBay' style ratings?

We have an active buy/sell forum and am hoping there is an easier answer than (1) writing my own, or (2) switching forums...

Thanks in advance,


vbulletin has an add-on called 'iTrader'


As described on a board using it (

"When you finish a transaction with another member here, use the rating system. Click the trader rating number below the avatar of the person you just conducted business with and click 'Submit Feedback for 'Username' (we'll use Demonicus for an example here, we all know he loves to be used ) and describe your experience. You can give good, netural, or negative feedback, and their trader rating will be effected respectively. This will affect theirs and ultimately your trader rating, when somebody leaves you good feedback.

With the trade forums thriving like they are, we all really need to take advantage of this system so that everyone can be as confident as possible with their trades. This system is similar to the e-bay rating system, which is very useful for making sure you can trust your trading partner... so trade with lots of people and get your positive trader rating up!"

You have to be logged on to see it function on most vB boards, ie:

You can see the Trader Rating but when you click on it it says you have to be logged in.

The answer is not supereasy, but you don't have to do a lot of modifications to the software.

You could use the build-in rating system, and adjust the code so that you can only vote after a transation with that person.
