I am looking for a little advice on setting up a new site.
I am offering a low cost option for getting set up with a website to local business using the themes. plugins, video tuts all found here and was hoping to get some advice on the best way to get set up.
I have installed Multi Site and have started uploading all of the themes from the farms zip, which most of them will be available to entry level buyers.
To get started I want to create a basic pack, so to speak, but with multiple payment options, trying to make it as easy as possible for any budget to sign up.
Later on when I have become more familiar with everything I will be adding Premium services, ie; plugins, themes, etc...
I will also be giving away free websites to build up a database of potential clients, but I will be charging a small fee for hosting.
So my question really is, what is the best plugin/option to use.
I also need to have access to multiple payment methods, ie PayPal, Google Checkout... etc
Am I best to use a Membership plugin or a Checkout eshop plugin? or both?
I initially need to set up two price points, for example a small one time recurring annual payment of $50 for hosting and access to the members content and another price of say $250 that can be paid using multiple payment options. For example a one time payment of $250 and then $50 a year for hosting, or if they want to pay using a payment plan charge the $300 over a six month period and then the $50 hosting fee annually.
I did see a site in the showcase that is similar to what I want to do... http://digitalpto.com/
so if anyone can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it heaps.
