We developed Pro Sites for the oldest and one of the most successful WordPress Multisite networks on the web – Edublogs. We’ve got over 1,000,000 blogs on Edublogs and Pro Sites makes it all possible.
Pro Sites is an upgrade of the WPMU DEV Supporter plugin.
Check out some of the new features:
- Offer different upgrade levels
- Create coupons
- New stats
- Front-end checkout
- PayPal Express and Pro Gateways
- NEW Stripe gateway!
The new Pro Site levels feature lets you create a tiered approach to your network membership.
You can add as many levels as you want.
For example, you could have your levels set up as follows:
This gives you maximum flexibility and should maximize your profits.
Users have see all of your available themes within in the normal WordPress admin area, whilst checking out your free themes they’ll also see all of your fantastic premium ones too!!
Because of those powerful WordPress features your customers will be able to see a live preview of your premium themes and no doubt when you dazzle them they will then upgrade immediately just so they can use the theme of their dreams.
Charge for functionality as well as design. You can make any plugin premium only, even Membership. That’s right, you can charge your users for the opportunity to create their own membership sites in your network!
Just select from the plugins you have installed on your network, choose which ones you want to be ‘Premium.’
With Pro Sites you can limit the group creation and messaging BuddyPress functions to paid members only.
Users can sign up, participate in groups, and generally enjoy your site but if they want to start their own groups or message other users then they have to upgrade.
We’re happy to build in more BuddyPress upgrade features too – just become a WPMU DEV Premium member and request them at the forums!
