    Easy Digital Downloading.

    Is this plugin suitable for some kind of Pay Per View website?
    I would like to protect my articles and similar and sell access for 24h.
    Or can I only use this with a regular webshop?

    HI @christofferypi,

    You can use our Content Restriction extension to sell access to content. Keep in mind that it is not time-based. It gives access to anyone who makes the correct purchase.

    To make it time-based, you need something that tracks each individual customer’s time, and it must also integrate with Content Restriction. Our Recurring Payments extension can do just that. Using both extensions alongside each other can offer customer time-based access to restricted content. You can use the settings to say a customer can only access the content if he or she has an active recurring subscription.

    That said, the last thing to keep in mind is that Recurring Payments will not give you the ability to offer a single 24 hour access/subscription period. Because Recurring Payments is a subscription tool, it requires you to assume more than one payment from the customer (otherwise, it’s not a subscription). Couple that with the fact that the smallest subscription period allowed is 24 hours, there’s no way to offer a one-time payment for 24 hour access. At a minimum, you must have it configured to be a daily subscription that happens at least twice.

    You can read more about how these work together here:—content-restriction-integration

    If you have anymore questions about the extensions themselves, please go ahead and open a support ticket on our actual website, as the functionality you need is not built directly into Easy Digital Downloads itself.
