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.
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.
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
An update will be released in next 24 hours to fix this. Actually, just avoid updating WooCommerce. Thanks
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
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.
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?
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 $80 USD
My second question, is about security, can 2 people login and use the same user and password?
there’s not a limit on users allowed to purchase a pla. You could implement it performing an additional check through APIs though.
Username is unique. Password can be the same.
Thanks for your answer,
I have to be honest I don’t have idea on how to use the APIs, would be this very difficult to implement?
My second question is more about if someone can share their user name? or the system detect when they are 2 persons using the same user?
APIs == PHP. Then you must have PHP and WP skills. However, without a user interface but just counting users per plan, is a relatively short work. I could create an add-on for you charging an hour of work (around 40$).
Do you mean IP detection? This isn’t performed since very often same user has got different IPs (eg. my router changes IP each time I switch my pc off)
I am happy to pay, I only want to be able to have 3 level of subscriptions, first 2 levels just change of price for one subscriber, third one can get multiple users, can be this done?
My second question is more about if someone can subscribe and give his subscription to other people, so I get only one payment but several people using the service
I’d prefer to talk via e-mail about technical details if you don’t mind. Here is a bit “narrow”. Please use my profile form
This is always a risk for any web service: eg. I can give my netflix account to my brother.
Is way more complex to setup an IP check even because IP could change also for same person, as said before.
Perfect, I sent you a message, thanks
Great plugin, I just have one question/problem once you fill the form and you press submit the plugin takes you to the payment page.
Where / how can i edit this page? as the current one has a sidebar that is not needed, I cant find this page on my pages
that is the wooCommerce checkout page. You have to set it in wooCommerce settings
great fixed, thank you !!!
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,
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. http://support.lcweb.it
It is possible that the members upgrade or change their plan?
do you mean upgrade during an active plan or after it’s expired?
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.
you have to think starting from PrivateContent registration. While (if I’ve understood) you want to enable the user profile after a WC product purchase.
Essentially, the user is purchasing personalized results. After the initial purchase, the results are then developed. The results are meant to be kept private so instead of having access to a member shi level they have private user access. I guess you could assume every user is their own membership level, but i assume that’s twisting the plugin to do something its not intended for.
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.
I’m not sure to have understood your aim: how you want to have paid content (then requiring users to pay) without subscriptions?
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.
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.
Hi, I’m wondering that is there possible to write down some notes for customers just only can view by administrator? Thanks
One more question, is there possible to create a “Family Pack” for subscription? Like Spotify through sending inviting email for active some one’s family account.
Hello, could you please elaborate a bit on these “notes”? Where does user have to write them?
Do you mean to show a specific plan only through a specific link?
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: https://codecanyon.net/item/woocommerce-customer-relationship-manager/5712695
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
Hello, how are you!
I have your Plugin PrivateContent, PrivateContent – Premium Plans add-on, Secure Links – PrivateContent add-on, User Data – PrivateContent add-on etc..
I tried my registration for support and I could not, I have a question and I need some help.
I have 3 plans for users to choose.
Plan 1) FREE unlimited (some restricted content)
Plan 2) $ 30.00 (30 days) full access
Plan 3) $ 90.00 (90 days) full access
how to let the user change the Plan 1 for Plan 2 or Plan 3?
this isn’t the account having purchased the plugin. You have to register on support site with purchaser account username.
Anyway: actually there isn’t an automated system to do so. Would be quite impossible to estup a common system for every customer (of mine). You should crete a contact form where users have to request the change.
Then you can process the change in admin panel
I’m a subscriber Evato Elements, and Secure Links – PrivateContent add-on I bought it on your page If you need the code I can send,
But I get it!
You can use the same user to buy another plan?
Oh well, I’m sorry but Elements doesn’t give you support entitlement. You should purchase a regular license.
All right, I do not want direct support.
it’s just a question, You can use the same user to buy another plan?
if possible I buy a regular license for you to help me
An user can have just one active plan. But you can change its plan (upon request) and a new order is created. Then you have a new checkout link directly from WooCommerce
I understand, your plugin is very good
I already installed and everything is working
I have evato element, I’m going to buy here too and have better support
I recommend this plugin
[Domanda pre-acquisto] Ciao Luca, vorrei sapere se è possibile vendere un prodotto anche senza abbonamento o per funzionare correttamente deve passare necessariamente per un abbonamento. Mi spiego meglio..supponiamo di avere un sito che vende videocorsi, questi videocorsi sono embeddati in una pagina che contiene più video (che allo stato attuale è protetta dal tuo plugin Private Content), ogni pagina è un videocorso specifico. Io vorrei poter vendere i videocorsi sia come abbonamento sia come singolo videocorso (può capitare che un utente voglia solo un videocorso e non un abbonamento). E’ possibile? Grazie mille e scusa la lungaggine.
caso decisamente specifico. Diciamo che si stanno mischiando sottoscrizioni e prodotti, quindi due entità diverse.
Potresti duplicare le entità: ovvero creare pagina X dove mostri i videocorrsi per gli utenti con sottoscrizioni (ricordati di mettere in sicurezza l’URL del video, o potrà essere condiviso).
Mentre puoi creare dei prodotti virtuali (i videocorsi) da acquistare singolarmente
Ottimo consiglio!! Quindi potrei acquistare anche il tuo plugin per rendere sicuri gli URL? Hai per caso un bundle per acquistare i prodotti? Io ho già il Private Content e l’Addon e vorrei comprare questo per gli abbonamenti e quello per rendere sicuri gli URL.
Si esatto. C’è anche il bundle, lo trovi qui: http://www.lcweb.it/privatecontent/bundle-pack
Its possible to assign different pages to users. that is to say, when they log in, the pages to which we have assigned them come out?
yes, this is one of PrivateContent abilities (be careful, this is an add-on).
Setting pages to be accessible only by X user, only them will be able to see them (also in menus, searches, archives)
Ho installato il plugin ma continua a visualizzare la versione vecchia 1.2 e non quella che ho acquistato 1.22 come mai?
Colpa mia, ho notato ora di aver lasciato “1.2” nel codice. Sorry
Ok quindi il plugin lo devo scaricare di nuovo? oppure posso lasciare installato quello?
Lascia installato, hai già l’ultima
hi install plug-in but when its working properly but i don’t know how to display plans. and i follow your video which you explain but when i on (Enable add-on integration) then go front-end page and refresh then its redirect to home page. please help me as soon as possible thanks
how did you get the plugin? You don’t have the buyer badge
Hi, Do customer receives an email after successful payment?
I know they receive welcome mail but they receive it when payment is pending / on hold. I wanted to know if there is an option when they receive an email after doing successful payment?
remember that payments are managed by WooCommerce, then you got covered by their mailing system
Ok thanks i had one more query, How can i accept files from the users? do your plugin PrivateContent – User Data supports file field too? or do will i need to custom code it some way?
Actually uploads are not included in the add-on. However I’ve planned to develop a “files manager” add-on, later this year
Is there any way i can add field input to user registration? by code or something?
You can use User Data add-on, or extend fields through APIs (via PHP)
No i actually meant – “Is there any way i can add FILE input to user registration? by code or something?” because i have User Data add-on but no FILE input
Oh: obviously not. Otherwise the User Data add-on would have done the trick!
You could find another frontend uploader though: through WP user sync, PrivateContent users will be able to use it
While checking error logs i found two strange issues –
PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function pc_user_logged() in /plugins/private-content-premium-plans/front_integrations.php
PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function get_entity_full_restr() on null in /plugins/private-content/restrictions/redirect_engine.php
I am using updated versions.
Wait.. how did you get the add-on? You don’t have the buyer badge
I had purchased elements.envato.com subscription, got it from there
Then you don’t have support, I’m sorry.
However those errors sounds like PvtContent is not installed/enabled. pc_user_logged() for example is a pvtContent API function, available everywhere
No worries, Now you can see purchased as well as supported badge, Could you please resolve the issues now?
Just open a ticket http://support.lcweb.it/
