Best software to use for classified listings
I'm looking for a software solution for people to submit classified ads to a website, choose from various display options, and have their payments processed. Like http://68classifieds.com , but I don't want the classifieds displayed on the website. They will only be visible to the administrator who enters them into a monthly PDF newsletter. Are there any slimmed-down solutions that would be more appropriate for this?

Most likely not. Under normal circumstances there's no point charging people to place an add, and then not displaying anything. Even though I understand that this is the case with what you're proposing, it's really not a common requirement at all.
If you want to do this, why not get one of the current solutions, and remove the front end parts, leaving only the members area, login, etc, and no actual display components? That seems like the most viable solution to me.
