First I want to say thank you for inquiring how you can help support this website. This site is deployed and maintained as a hobby project and I’m trying to avoid putting obtrusive ads to support it financially. I’ve built this project to be as low cost as possible to make sure I can keep this site up indefinitely.
That being said, there are a few things on my wishlist for this site that I can’t personally justify the cost of. So if you’re interested in supporting this site, helping me fund these things to improve this site would be the best way.
The Events Directory plugin would allow ShopLocalPeru.com to feature local events like Street Markets, Special Sales, Community Picnics, Yard Sales, or any other kind of public local event. This plugin costs $39 dollars and I’ve set up a PayPal pool for this here. https://paypal.me/pools/c/8shPl0UBTP
The Claim Listings Addon would allow ShopLocalPeru.com to allow business owners to claim and manage the listings for their businesses here on the site. Businesses can already do this currently, but it requires them to send an email to me, and for me to manually set up the account. This is more time consuming and having this plugin would mean that business This plugin costs $39 dollars and I’ve set up a PayPal pool for this here. https://paypal.me/pools/c/8shNiqWZCw
Maps can start to look like a sea of markers, creating a degraded user experience. Clustering markers together simplifies your data visualization by consolidating listings that are nearby each other on the map. This plugin costs $39 and I’ve set up a PayPal pool for this here.
By default, GeoDirectory (The Platform this site is built on) offers a single custom post type, called “Places.” This add-on would allow me to create and add as many CPT’s as we need. This would allow more fine tuned control of different types of listings like having stores & restaurants use different templates. It would also allowing me to set up new types of listings like real estate and classifieds, as well as allow for “locationless” listings for businesses that don’t have any customer facing location.
