Embedded ads are displayed in between your product directory listings on locations that you define, as shown in the image below:
What filters can I have on my product directory page?
I've installed CM Business Directory and Product Directory. Is there a way to associate products to businesses?
Yes, the Product directory and Business directory can be integrated together. For this to work you need to have the community add-ons installed for both plugins.
