Paid Multisite single level, $X startup cost with Y months free and $Z/mo after

I'm planning to use a bunch of WPMUdev plugins to get my paid Multisite network up and running. The business model that I'm looking to create looks like this:

"Pay $X.xx up front, get 6 months free. After that, $Z.zz per month".

The Pro Sites plugin is obviously useful and the WHMCS Multisite provisioning is very interesting as well.

I'm currently under the impression that I'll need to write my own custom extension for the ProSites plugin to get the functionality I want but I wanted to double-check that it's not already possible with me missing it before I start coding that. (Additional note: rather than membership levels, I want a simple single cost for all users that's the same with all users having the same access to features).

    Greetings brianfeister,

    Welcome to WPMU DEV!

    I'm currently under the impression that I'll need to write my own custom extension for the ProSites plugin to get the functionality I want but I wanted to double-check that it's not already possible with me missing it before I start coding that.

    Yes to accomplish this within Pro Sites you will indeed need to custom code this functionality within - it is not available out of the box unfortunately.

    It does offer a trial -> but it is a completely free trial so that does not help us for this mission.

    Please let me know if you do not want to custom code this in and I can provide you with some alternatives if you do not want to deal with it yourself.

    Cheers, Joe

    Greetings brianfeister,

    The alternatives are two things that I can think of are hiring someone to code this for you like a developer from the wpmu jobs board to the suggestion of taking an already existing gateway, copying it and then modifying it to create a subscription on the PayPal side with the trial of six months and then the regular monthly recurring.

    That is about it for alternatives that I can think of staying within the framework you had originally posted.

    You could also get the Membership plugin involved which has a way with Pro Sites to allow site creation and this already has the ability to use the pay plan that you have in mind.

    That about covers everything I can think of to make this happen in the manner you desire.

    Thank you for being a WPMU DEV Community Member!

    Cheers, Joe
