I could see video without paying

I went to a post with Pay Per View enabled. I clicked on the buy button. It took me to PayPal. Instead of paying for the video, I clicked the back button. I was able to see the video. (uh oh!)

    thanks for posting.

    are you sure you have configured it correctly?

    I just visited your page and could watch the video without even trying to pay.

    make sure you have enabled it for posts & possibly custom post types, and that your accessibility is set accordingly.

    hope this helps. if you still require further assistance, don't hesitate to ask.

    Hi Vaughan,

    Thanks for responding so quickly. I have read through the documentation, but it is possible I don't have it configured correctly. I saw the PayPal button one time. After that, I haven't seen it anymore. Do I select content in the post then click the Pay Per View button in the WYSIWYG editor? Or just click the Pay Per View button which inserts the shortcode without selecting content?

    Here is the source code excerpt for that page:

    ` [ppw id="38908925" description="Diastisis Recti/Lose the Pooch!" price="27"]

    <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/66692018" height="375" width="500" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe>


    Here is my scenario. I have three videos A, B, and C. I want to sell each one individually OR sell A & B in a package price OR sell A, B, & C with a different packaged price. Would it be best to use the membership plugin for this (using "Standard Membership Site") and simply have five different membership types?

    Thanks so much.
