Requiring users to pay to access a category
With Paid Access, you can easily charge users a one-time or recurring subscription fee to access selected categories.
Please follow the directions mentioned below to require paid access for specific categories.
Now when a user tries to view a category that requires paid access, they will be shown a page with the Paid Access Message you specified in your settings along with a PayPal payment button. Once the user makes the payment, they will automatically have the Paid user group added to their Additional User Groups and will be given access to all paid access areas. If a user cancels their subscription through PayPal or one of their subsription payments fails, they will automatically be removed from the Paid user group and access to paid access areas will be restricted until the payment is successfully processed.
To give additional permissions to paid users only, restrict permissions for the General user group and give permissions to the Paid user group.
