Can market press do the following, and if so how?

1. Does Marketpress allow for recurring payments/subscriptions?

2. If Marketplace does allow for recurring payments/subscriptions, does anything special need to be done with the payment processor (paypal, google, stripe, authorize)? Or does marketpress handle the subscription and submit payments itself?

3. I would like to have special pricing for individuals that purchase three or more of my reports. The reports retail for $399, but would like to price 3 reports for $999. Can Marketpress handle this discount pricing? Additionally, after three are purchased then can each subsequent report be priced at $333 or $299?

4. I also would like to offer a subscription service to the reports for $3499 a year or for $300 a month. Can marketpress support this different pricing structure?

    Hey barrettcb, hope are you well!

    1. Does Marketpress allow for recurring payments/subscriptions?

    MarketPress is not currently able to handle recurring or subscription payments. You might like to consider our Membership or Pro Sites plugin for that, depending on your purpose.

    3. I would like to have special pricing for individuals that purchase three or more of my reports. The reports retail for $399, but would like to price 3 reports for $999. Can Marketpress handle this discount pricing? Additionally, after three are purchased then can each subsequent report be priced at $333 or $299?

    Currently not, there is no way to offer cross promotions, bulk discounts, etc.

    You could however generate a coupon which they can use for discounting their cart total. Maybe that would work well for you?

    I do think this would make a fantastic feature though, I know it has been requested often as well. Out of interest and so that I can pass your feedback on, how would you envisage it all working?

    4. I also would like to offer a subscription service to the reports for $3499 a year or for $300 a month. Can marketpress support this different pricing structure?

    As I mentioned MarketPress can not handle subscriptions but I think, looking at what you want to achieve here then Membership would be the best fit for you:

    You can set up different plans, upgrades, downgrades, etc. You could even install Membership over multiple sites within a multisite install.

    Take care.

    barrettcb,

    Welcome to WPMU forums!

    I am sorry to say that at present Marketpress does not currently provide for membership subscription, however it's already been added as a feature request. Feel free to visit the thread and add your +1 for the request. The developers pay closer attention to requests with more momentum.

    Also, It does not currently provide recurring payments. The framework is not set-up to allow this and there are no future plans to allow for it.

    However you can check out our Membership plugin
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/membership

    It will allow you to create pages that are selectively accessible to membership levels you set and lets you create levels for "drip" content which means a user can buy access to one page at a time, as well as much more.

    Best,

    Kimberly
