I need the following setup for my membership site: 1.

I need the following setup for my membership site:

1. Customer signs up for $X for 14 days.
2. Customer then pays $Y per month until canceled.

However, the "drip" is actually every week. For example, in week one the customer gets all posts in category Week 1. Then in week two, customer gets all posts in category Week 1 and Week 2. The next week another set is added, etc.

The levels for the dripped membership don't seem to work that way. For example, you pay at level "Week 1", but new content needs to be delivered in "Week 2" without any charge. Then "Week 3" the first of the monthly payments will be charge, and Weeks 4, 5 & 6 will be delivered respectively after 7 days each, with no charge.

I can set these up to only charge the fee each 4th week, and then move the subscribers ahead to a "$0.00" membership level for the next 3 weeks. Does this seem like the best way to accomplish this? How does this even play out in a payment gateway?

Of course, the other option would be to just set the payment up as a standard PayPal subscription through a different signup page and add the customer to the system manually.

Or is there another way?

Thanks.
