Upgraded Profiles

We are currently developing a BuddyPress site that is a directory of industry-specific companies offering an array of services. Joining the site is free and you can fill in a general amount of information for your profile. We’ll call this the FREE profile.

What we are looking to do is offer a paid FEATURED profile that offers more fields and highlights the profile, either with a style/flag that says “featured” and/or shows the profiles at the top of the directory list. Of course, these additional features would not be available to the FREE users!

Looking for a suggestion on how to best implement this within our site. I had my eye on the Membership plugin here, but I’m not sure if it will work for what we’re looking for?

Thanks in advance!
