One-off micropayment purchases of individual articles

Hi,

In my ideal world, I'd like to be able to combine an all-you-can-eat membership subscription with the ability to purchase individual articles. I was, for example, looking at Cleeng, which can use Paypal for Digital Goods. But I don't see how I could really easily integrate Cleeng with Membership. So I'm wondering if you can recommend something related to WPMU Dev that would play nice with Membership so that I get a single screen where people can (1) purchase the individual article or (2) purchase a subscription. If they are logged in, they just see the article. If they are not logged in, they get the option of (1) or (2) above. Any suggestions?

Cordially,
Justin Long

    Hi Justin,

    I'm not familiar with Cleeng, but the developer version of Gravity Forms includes a PayPal add-on that can be used for pay per post functionality.

    There's currently no pay per post feature in Membership. It's been mentioned before but essentially Membership is meant for a member-based system whereas pay per post functionality tends to fall a bit outside of that.

    Perhaps Gravity Forms would solve this for you though?

    Cheers,
    David

    Hi justindlong,

    There's not a special integration between Gravity Forms and Membership, no. With a bit of custom coding though, it really doesn't seem that would be too difficult.

    Membership provides a number of conditional functions that can help with this matter as follows:
    current_user_is_member()
    current_user_on_level($level_id)
    current_user_on_subscription($sub_id)

    Cheers,
    David
