                      Integration With WPMU DEV Plugins

                      Pro Sites includes special integration with: Domain Mapping, Pretty Plugins, Multisite Theme Manager.

                      About Pro Sites

                      The Pro Sites plugin is designed for users to pay for additional features for their site.

                      The idea is you offer features that make them want to sign up for a paid site rather than use a free site.  We refer to the paid blog as a ‘pro site’ and the free blog as a ‘non-pro site’ however you can change it’s name on the Settings page in Network Admin » Pro Sites » Settings.

                      Pro Sites is per site, not per user.  When they sign up for a single Pro subscription, the dashboard they are logged into when they subscribe is the site that is upgraded, and Pro features are only applied to that site, so if they are a member of another site they will not see Pro features on that site.

                      Important notes about Pro Sites levels

                      When setting up and working with Pro Sites levels, there are a few things to keep in mind, as follows:

                      • Free levels – When new sites are created, they are technically Free. You can remove this Free site functionality by enabling the Pay to Blog module.
                      • Downgrades – When users downgrade a site’s level, Pro Sites creates a new subscription at lower rate. Their level will drop when the next scheduled payment (lesser) comes through.
                      • Upgrades – When a site’s level is upgraded, the difference is calculated automatically by the plugin and the date of their next payment is adjusted to take into account any balance from the previous subscription. Basically, it’s pro-rated by time and this is done because when upgrading you want them to immediately have access to the higher level.

                      Advanced:

                      If you need to run Pro Sites on multiple WP installs but with the same PayPal account, you will need to setup an IPN forwarding script. This is due to limitations in the PayPal APIs regarding subscriptions and only being able to set one IPN URL in PayPal settings.

                      Instructions for this can be found here.
