Plugin Available? - Pay to Blog (8 posts)

    Hi,

    I am trying to find out if there is a plugin available (paid or free) that can help me automate my the user access to my multisite

    What I have is one multisite with a public website and (what will be) many private sites.

    The idea is that there are generally 2 types of memberships

    1. Paid Membership - that allows for them to have their own dedicated site
    2. Free Membership - that is invited by the Paid Membership. Free members can be members of more than one site.

    What I want is for people to be able to come to the public site ... complete a signup form (include providing their payment details using paypal), receive one month free and then have the subscription automatically bill them once the free period is over. When they sign up it would create a new site (from a template) and create the user account with a specified user access level (not administrator) with access to that account. I do not want them to have a site created without entering their payment details first. I do not want to have a option which allows for a free account.

    Is there a plugin or group of plugins that can do this. I have worked out the template part and I know I can do the rest manually but it would be great if I could autmate this

    I have tried a few paid and free plugins and just can't seem to get it to work the way I want. Some I have tried include Supporter, Membership and Pay to Blog.

    Thanks for your assistance

  2. So generic users (without a blog) are free.

    But users have to pay to get their own site?

    Did I get that right?

  3. complete a signup form (include providing their payment details using paypal), receive one month free and then have the subscription automatically bill them once the free period is over. When they sign up it would create a new site (from a template) and create the user account with a specified user access level (not administrator) with access to that account. I do not want them to have a site created without entering their payment details first.

    then you'll need something custom developed, because I know of nothing that doesn't create the site first then take payment.

    Doable, yes. Available? No.

    FWIW, Premium Package manager does do the pay to blog part, but it DOES create the blog first, then take payment. But the user can't do a darn thing on the blog until they pay.

    No idea if s2members does anything like that.

    The problem, programmatically, with what you want to do is you're interrupting the signup process with a payment processing. It;s tricky, cuz we've had clients want it that way.

  4. The first thought that comes to mind is only permit users to register, and NOT to make blogs.

    Then your payment plugin would require someone to create the blog for them (or you could code it in somehow). Run a call to the replicator plugin maybe. Be a bit more manual, though.

    @andrea, how are you? you had suggested the Premium Package Manager plugin and eshop to setup a paid membership site. i installed both, got them working, and once i setup a premium package, i seem to be lost. not sure how to go about setting up a page where a user can see the premium package, select which option they want, and then purchase it to sign up. maybe i'm missing something, but would there be any tutorials for this? or maybe you can give some advice. thanks so much!

  6. I'm writing a paid manual for it now. But basically, you set up your package, make sure when you do it has a SKU number and check the "stock available" box. Now go to "network admin", and under the PPM menu click "update packages". If it shows on the list, it;s active. users will see it under "My account" in their dashboard.
