User must pay or purchase credits before they're allowed to submit a new post? (5 posts)

    This sounds a bit sinister but it's not, I mentioned in another post I'm looking into using a lot of the amazing WordPress functionality etc build a website I'm working on. It's not a blog at all.

    Ideally I would like anyone to be able to register, but not submit a new post until they have paid say £X, or purchased credits that allow them to post. There's a very good reason for this as the user would be purchasing a service.

    Is there any way of doing this do you know?

    I've seen some of the Shop plugins and Paypal Donate plugins but I'm not sure if I'll be able to change them significatly enough for my needs.

    I'm no developer, but if needs be I'm willing to pay someone to add this functionaility, I know a few excellent php coders who would be able to do it I'm sure.

    But if I can work out how to do it myself using semi-existing WP functionailty then I'll give it a go :)

    Anyone able to help?

    Thanks a lot,
    Rich

    I think this would be an extremely complex system to implement, so I think you're going to need to get someone else to code it, as I know of no plugins with this functionality.

    Found something! This seems to have the functionality you're looking for

    Ma8thew, that EasyPayPal plugin looks like it may be perfect for what I need! Good find, and thank you very very much :)

    If anyone else has any other suggestions though I'd still love to hear them.

    I've also found this plugin called WPB-PayPal 2.1 you can buy for $25, which seems to me like it has a few more features.

    Anyone tried this one vs the EasyPayPal one in the past?

    I've just tried the EasyPayPal one and while it is a fantastic plugin there was one bug which means I can't use it for what I want until it's fixed. I've emailed the author so I'll let you know what happens. Maybe I was just using it wrong :)
