So if you have purchased a domain name called MyDirectory.com and you are going to have multiple sub-domains such as sub1.MyDirectory.com, sub2.MyDirectory.com and so on, then you may purchase an only single license for one primary domain. You may have multiple sub-domains under the same single license that was purchased for the primary domain. For more details go here
Why should I choose ListingPro over the other popular theme?
In most directory themes you just pay for the theme or very basic functionality and then you will have to purchase several external plugins sometimes from various different authors and get it all working together comes a nightmare as if you run into an issue every plugin author will tend to point fingers at each other and you end up spending tons of dollars on a directory site that doesn't work as expected.
During our research, we found out that most of the WordPress Directory Themes which are priced around $60-$90 do not include all the necessary plugins to create a decent enough directory site without having to purchase additional plugins they may cost you up to $700 to sometimes even $1500+.
We wanted to create something that a user can purchase and doesn't have to worry about any additional plugins for building a directory listing site with core directory listing features and we tried our best to do exactly that.
We built a Mega-Powerful All-in-One
extension that will allow you to add listing from front-end and back-end, users can claim a listing from front-end and admin can accept or reject from the backend, admin can generate income by charging users upon upgrading to paid listing or even when they like to promote their listing via ads. I can keep on going for several hours about what ListingPro
can do. If you are still not convinced that's ok. Check out what's some of the industry leaders has to say. [WATCH VIDEO]

The new Lead Form Builder allows to build a custom lead form that is global (applies to all listings) as per your requirement. Even the listing owners can build their specific custom lead forms.
Does your system work with WP Job Manager?
You don't need WP Job Manager. We have developed our own built-in competitive system for specifically to create Directory & Listing site with ListingPro. Whereas WP Job Manager was designed for job-board functionality sites and not a directory sites in mind.
