|For Sale Ads|

I would guess payments turn into money to pay taxes on. Where the donations to help keep the site running may fall under some protected status (as far as taxes go, nonprofit?)
Selling ads becomes for profit, and may be a true PITA.
Or at least the effort to keep it clear all is non profit? may be a problem.
I know Audiogon way back charged $2 a pop, and one could have a credit account/prepaid account. (In fact Audiogon STILL owes me $18 they swallowed with no comment at all, the bastards, after the changeover from the original Michigan dude to the dude East. By now, with interest AND penalties, Audiogon owes me like $87,020. easy.)
Yeah that would pretty much dry up most listings. IMO of course.
"that would pretty much dry up most listings"
Meaning..?.. people wouldn't post listings on AA because they wouldn't want to pay $5?
Yep. That's exactly what I mean.
Most people that use this site are too cheap to pay the $25 contrbutor fee. I doubt very much that they would pay any kind of a listing fee!
Right. Doesn't sound like much but it's more the hassle/inconvenience than the money.
