Let your users pay to view content. Use it to hide download links, images, paragraphs or other shortcodes. This plugin allows the administrator to use a shortcode and hide certain content from guests until payment is completed. Uses PayPal.

To hide post/page content (text, image, shortcode) use the [paypal]Your content here[/paypal] shortcode. It will use the default price and currency.
To specify a price for your hidden content and override the default one, use the [paypal amount=11]Your content here[/paypal] shortcode.
Place another shortcode inside the Pay2View payment shortcode: [paypal][another-shortcode][/paypal].

Only guests and non-members see the payment button. Members always see the hidden content.


  1. Upload the folder pay2view to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Settings | PayPal Pay2View and configure your plugin
