Another forum I frequent for other subject matter has a "Buy/Sell/Trade" sub forum. For users wanting to, well, buy/sell/trade parts they have on hand. Examples would be the stock muffler they took off or that fancy seat that seemed like a good idea at the time but didn't work out. That same forum also has a separate Vendors sub forum for members who are in the trade. I think they pay a little extra, but can then advertise their products, web sites or B&M stores within the Vendors sub form. They frequently offer discounts for members.
I suspect that having members post simple links to products in a sub forum is quickly going to wind up with a bunch of dead links and no small amount of spamming.
