Hello and thanks for your support!
I'm just setting up my business and looking at this plugin and the tutorials.
I have three packages (none are free)
1) basic website - It has a setup fee of $x and a monthly fee of $y
2) more advanced - It has a setup fee of $i and a monthly fee of $j
3) totally custom and payment is received offline
I imagine giving the users for packages 1 and 2 editor status only. I don't expect them to manage their own content though - I just want them to go in there to look at stats or to order other products I am offering through the dashboard. ie - they won't be able to select plugins or change their own theme etc.
I am also unsure that I want to use paypal or stripe as I think I can get better rates going with a local merchant account / gateway. But I want them to signup and pay online -so I don't want to handle it manually.
I do, however want level 1 to be able to initiate an upgrade to level 2 from the dashboard.
What is your advice?
Thanks so much.
