Do you want candidates to pay? (5 posts)

    You’re maybe using WC Paid Listing in able to charge the employers on your site. That would work if you are running a traditional job board website. What if you’re in a market with a high level of unemployment, or maybe running a more nontraditional job board, like a freelancer website? You have maybe figured out that you will earn more on charging the candidates instead of the employers.

    I have talked to Mike Jolley about adding Resume Packages as well. It seems like I’m not the only one that wants this features, so he will work on it in the next weeks. This will allow candidates to pay for posting X amounts of resume listings. However, he will not include any option for the duration of each resume listing, and he will not let us change the jobs visibility to only active candidates. This is because he has not received enough emails demanding these features.. This means that candidates only have to pay a one time fee for posting resumes on your site - a listing that will be there forever.

    If you want features like resume duration, and jobs visibility, you will have to tell Mike on email. He will implement it if the demand is high enough. Contact him on support@wpjobmanager.com and explain these exact features to him.

    Hello! I would also like these features to be added in the next update! I’m currently using a membership plugin, but just as you said, it’s hard to keep a track of expired subscriptions. I’m constantly getting emails from candidates who want me to delete their resumes. That’s because they don’t have access to it themselves. It would be better if such a duration feature would be added. Job visibility is something I haven’t thought about, but that would also be nice! :)

    This is something I have been waiting for! Both resume duration and job visibility! Just look at the comment area for Jobify on Themeforest. Search for "candidates pay" and you will see that there’s many people that want all these features! Same thing about Jobera and other job board themes!

    I’m also one of those who want these features included in the next update! I’m charging candidates, but it’s hard to get them to register when they already have access to all the jobs. This is something I know for a fact, because I asked some of my visitors why they didn’t register. Job visibility is something I need. I guess @helenwh has a point as well. I have already received a couple of emails like that, and I guess it would escalate when I get more users. That would be painful to handle when I run the site alone.
