Best approach to charge per Bp Group using membership?

I want to create a site where users create their first buddypress group for free, but after that need to pay a fee per group created. What’s the best approach to do that with membership plugin? I want to allow them to add as many groups to their account as they like, increasing their payment on a per group basis. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Hi enioken welcome to WPMU Dev and thanks for your post.

    Mmmmm interesting question. Membership certainly cant handle that function at the moment I dont think. It just restricts group registration to “levels”. But doesnt work on a per group basis.

    What you really want is something like the upgrades plugin but adapted for groups:

    Im afraid thats out of my league and would prob require a fair bit of coding and so would be better placed on the job board here or finding a coder yourself….or indeed doing it yourself if you are that way inclined.

    Hope that helps

    Thank you for these suggestions — Kimberly, I had already experimented with the group creation rule and it’s a really cool feature indeed.

    However, I want to allow them to ADD groups to their subscription. So I’m going to try “upgrades” per suggestion.

    Any known problems with Upgrades and Membership, if I would like to keep both? Can they work together?

    hello enioken!

    You are breaking into new territory there :slight_smile: I’ve not seen anyone combine the two since the recode of membership, so please be sure to let us know of your trials as you go!

    I can say they should co-exist fine, I cannot see any glaring conflicts :slight_smile:

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
