Hi, is it possible to enable payments “per unit” rather than subscription? My client wants members to create an account but to pay each time they upload a report that my client then transcribes.

Everything else about PrivateContent is required to make this all work but we have run into an issue when it comes to accepting payments “per report uploaded”. If we use woocommerce or even PayPal without PrivateContent we lose many of the needed features your plugin and several of its add-ons provide.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks, Slade

Hi Slade,
isn’t possible to do so. But I also didn’t totally understand your aim.

Do you want user to pay to upload on your site?

Hi, thanks for the reply.

Basically my client is a neurosurgeon who transcribes reports uploaded by physicians. A physician will create an account and periodically upload patient reports to a secure box account where my client will download, transcribe and then re-upload for the physician.

My client charges $xx each time the physician uploads a patient report that my client then transcribes.

As you can see…a subscription plan won’t work because they pay “per uploaded report”. Unfortunately I need your PrivateContent plugin plus add-ons but the client doesn’t want the physician to have to create 2 accounts (1 for PrivateContent and another to save payment details). I was hoping I had found the solution but it doesn’t look like it.

thanks, Slade

Nope, the add-on won’t work for this and neither would be “tweakable” for this.

You should create another woocommerce add-on to manage this .Sincerely don’t even know f is feasible to track uploads as “pay tickets”.

Is a quite specific and tricky system to make


The add-on is still not compatible with WooCommerce 3.0

An update will be released in next 24 hours to fix this. Actually, just avoid updating WooCommerce. Thanks

Update’s update :)

v1.09 with WooCommerce v3 compatibility has been just pushed through auto-updater. Envato takes time to approve it on codecanyon though.

Facing issues relatd to this, just open a ticket and you’ll get the update ASAP. thanks

I have a pre-sale question. Is there a way for members to be able to update their Profile after they login. Users may wish to change their password or correct a spelling error in their name. Can this be done?

sure, is possible using custom forms by User Data add-on

hi is it able to use this plugin to Allow paid subscribers to purchase sites in a WordPress multisite. So after payment and signup a new site will be created.

this add-on belongs to PrivateContent plugin, then works with its systems.

A PvtContent user can’t reach WP admin panel, then he couldn’t manage a new site.

Hi there,

The time limited subscriptions is the part of the plugin that interests me but on one of the sites I wish to install this on subscriptions are free, so WooCommerce would be an unnecessary addition to the site.

Is it essential to install WooCommerce? If so, could you offer a “lite” version that doesn’t require this?



Hello Daniel,
yes this is also a wooCommerce add-on: plans are WC products.

Anyway with your setup there will be no trace WC in your site (apart from its scripts).

Very interesting plugin, I am wondering if instead of having different subscriptions based on time (1 month, 3 months, etc) I can also have a subscriptions based on the number of users, for example

level 1 one user $10 USD level 2 four users $30 USD level 3, ten users $80 USD

My second question, is about security, can 2 people login and use the same user and password?

I sent you a message, hopefully you can help me.. thanks

Hi, very nice and funny plugin! Thank you for your job! Just one question. When plan is expired and users renew their subscription using the specific [pcpp-change-plan] shortcode page, I do not find a redirect page setting and users find the 404 page. No way to set up a redirect to the woocommerce cart page? Thank you for your help, Riccardo

Ciao Riccardo,
se ho capito bene, dal form di “renew plan” gli utenti non sono mandati al checkout di wooCommerce?

si, o meglio… l’utente effettua il login ma il piano è scaduto e il plugin lo invita a rinnovare l’abbonamento. clik su “renew now” e vengo correttamente reindirizzato alla pagina con lo shortcode [pcpp-change-plan]. li seleziono di nuovo il piano o ne sottoscrivo un’altro, clicco su renew subscription e mi dice “un nuovo ordine è stato inviato” e poi mi manda alla pagina 404, quando invece dovrei finire nel carrello di woocommerce

Si, dovrebbe mandarti diretto al checkout di wooCommerce. Perfavore apri un ticket e dammi un accesso PrivateContent per testare.

Allega anche uno screenshot dei settings di Premium Plans, grazie.

Hi there,

It is possible that the members upgrade or change their plan?

During an active plan.

Actually user should ask directly to website administrator, he can manage plans change on the admin’s side.

I’d like to implement a switch system for the frontend, but is really hard to manage refunds or discounts for the remaining period. Almost impossible to satisfy every need.

Ok. Thanks for your response.

Is it possible to create member specific pages. For example, Johnny purchases a widget thru WC. In purchasing that widget Johnny now can access his own private personal page.

Thanks! -e

Yeah, user categories are not associated like this, plus users have to register through PrivateContent form before being able to purchase.

You could setup an add-on assigning different user categories if existing users purchase a specific product though.

So your private content plugin can accomplish this with the only difference being that they need to register before they buy?

No, there isn’t any system to manipulate categories, you have to code it using APIs.

Basically track a purchase and manipulate purchaser categories. It surely needs developer skills

Hello, I am interested in your plugin, I would like to know if it is possible to establish paid content (pay to view) without the need to generate plans or subscriptions.

Best, miguel

Ok, I give an example. 1. I have content on a page of interest for a user / client. 2. To access the content the customer pays 10 euros. 3. The customer pays for access to that page but has no obligation to maintain a subscription a time.

Best, miguel

Just create a subscription without end :)

Hello, I need a solution so each user has a different dashboard and content I make with visual composer, do you have a solution for this? Thanks

PrivateContent gives a private page to every user. Actually you need to use a workaround to enable Visual Composer on these private pages.

In next major release I’ll implement a slightly different solution, to allow visual builders to be used.

Theoretically you can also setup the structure on a normal WP page and copy/paste the resulting VC shortcodes.

PS: please note this is a PrivateContent add-on, and not the core plugin.

Yes, exactly ;)

Hi, I’m wondering that is there possible to write down some notes for customers just only can view by administrator? Thanks :)

Hi LCweb,

The notes usage is for CRM. As a administrator, I want to write some memo for our customers like “High Loyalty”, “Pitching”, “Always complain”... and so on.

I used “WooCommerce Customer Relationship Manager” plugin before for customer private notes:

You can use User Data add-on to create custom fields and use them internally (and also show them into users list)

Thank you very much :)
