Private Members Website

Private Members Website was created by jacquelinejax
Hi, I am looking to build a members only website that members pay monthly for in order to access the content. The private content would be photo's and video mostly. I've looked around for companies offering website templates to do this but can't find anything and wordpress plugins just seem to make everything so complicated. Do you know what company hosts these kinds of site with easy setup templates to design them with. I think what mostly has me stuck is finding a site with the ability to take credit cards to enter and that will rebill the members without manually having to keep track of which members have paid to enter the site each month. Another problem is being able to host video privately so the content is members only,

Hi jacquelinejax,

Have you considered wordpress? We have a great video tutorial on making a membership site.

I did look at that a while ago but did that include special features such as accepting credit cards upon entrance, billing members monthly options and having the site control the memberships of those who continue monthly? Also did the class go over if and how wordpress can host the content (videos and photos) privately? I want to make sure I build a site that keeps the section private and will be built to manage thousands. I have always tried to think and plan ahead so we don't outgrow our technology to quickly.

Hi Jacqueline

Yes, you can do that with Paid Memberships Pro.

You can set individual pages to be private. Whatever is inside those pages can only be accessed by members.

Thanks for the quick response. Is there a sample website that I can look at to see if it's the right look and feel for my design and needs? And can you use paypal?

Hi Jacqueline,
Hope you don't mind I jump into discussion.

Is there a sample website that I can look at to see if it's the right look and feel for my design and needs?

There are several themes that will support Paid Membreships Pro with a variety of designs.

A quick example, the Paid Membreships Pro's developer has a theme available in case you want to see how would look: www.paidmembershipspro.com/themes/memberlite/

And can you use paypal?

Yes, you can use Paypal with Paid Memberships Pro. Here is the full list of payment gateways.

Kind regards,
Valentín
