It’s simple to use.

All you need is a Twitter account and a PayPal account. If you don’t have a Twitter account then go sign up now at Twitter and come on back. We’ll wait for you.

Enter your Twitter account to get started.

You’re already an expert.

Update your status on Twitter to pay somebody. Fill in the boxes below and click Tweet, and we’ll show you how it’s done.

When you’re ready to settle up, we make that easy, too, with one person, or everyone you owe.

EasyPayPal WordPress Plugin

EasyPayPal WordPress Plugin

EasyPayPal is a WordPress plugin that allows you to make money from your WordPress site by collecting a payment from your users. When a new user creates a login on your site, they will be taken to PayPal to process their payment. When they return to your site, the next payment date will be updated based on a period that you define. After the next payment date, the user will attempt to login and they will be taken to PayPal to process their next payment.

‘Charge for Content’ using Pay Buttons

With EasyPayPal you can create a ‘Buy Now’ button in any post using [paybutton][/paybutton] tags.  Hide text and links from your users until they purchase the content that is hidden within the [paybutton] tags.

Usage:
[paybutton]{Item Name*}|{Item Number*}|{Amount*}|{Currency Code}|{Subscription Days}|{Hidden Text}[/paybutton]
*Required

Simple Pay Now (No Login Required)

Sometimes, you just want to insert a quick Pay Now button in your post. This option could be used to pay for an external service or product. To create a Simple Pay Now button, use the same [paybutton] code, but include the words ‘login=no’ in the {Hidden Text} area.

Example:
[paybutton]Technical Support|1000|150.00|||login=no[/paybutton]

‘Charge to Publish’ using a Custom Payment page

This feature allows you to charge a fee before a user publishes a post from your site.  This works very well for WordPress-driven job boards.  Create a page with the title of ‘[Payment Options]‘.  Whenever a user attempts to access the post editor, WordPress will check the number of post credits available to the user.  If they have run out of post credits, they will be taken to your custom payment page.  Use [paybutton] tags on your page to allow users to purchase post credits.  In this case, the item number becomes the number of post credits that a user will purchase.

Example:
[paybutton]1 Job Post|1|30|||[/paybutton]
[paybutton]5 Job Posts|5|50|||[/paybutton]

Custom Subscription Page

Create a page with the title of ‘[pay]‘.  The contents of this page will be displayed to your users whenever their subscription expires.  Insert multiple [paybutton] tags on this page to create different subscription options.

For example, you can create Monthly and Annual options easily on your custom page.

$2 per month
[paybutton]Monthly|1001|2||30|[/paybutton]
$50 per year
[paybutton]Annually|1002|50||365|[/paybutton]

Hiding pages in your theme

Some themes display all of your pages in a menu or a sidebar. If you don’t want to display all of your pages, including [pay] pages, look for the wp_list_pages() function in your theme files (usually the header or sidebar file). You can select specific pages for this function by using the include parameter. The code below will display only the pages with the page ids in the include list:

wp_list_pages('include=4,8,15,16,23,42&depth=1&title_li=');

Subscriber-only Content

EasyPayPal allows you to hide content from non-subscribers. Simply enclose your subscriber content within [pay][/pay] tags. The content will only be visible to users who have logged into your site. This functionality allows you to provide a preview of a post to non-subscribers, prompting them to register to view the rest of the post.

Trial Period

If you’d like to offer your subscribers a chance to try your service before paying, you can specify a trial period. After the trial period ends, the next time the user attempts to login, they will be directed to PayPal.

Returning to WP from PayPal

By default, a user will return to the WP dashboard after purchasing a subscription or making a payment that would allow them to publish content. If a user clicks on a Pay Now button in a post or page, they will be returned to that post or page.

If you don’t want your user to return to the dashboard following a subscription payment, you may modify the plugin by setting $epp_redirect=true. In the plugin, remove the comment code as shown in the example below:

//Uncomment the following line to have the user redirected to the home page after making a payment.
$epp_redirect = true;

Compatibility
EasyPayPal has been tested with WordPress 2.0.4 and should be compatible with any version at or above 2.0.

Installation

  1. Download the easypaypal ZIP file. (see the end of this article for download location)
  2. Extract the /easypaypal folder and copy the entire folder into your WordPress plugins directory (wp-content/plugins).  Delete any previous versions of EasyPayPal.
  3. Make sure you have a PayPal account.
  4. In PayPal, ensure that Auto Return is disabled.See the following link for help: Disable Auto Return
  5. Login to WordPress Admin.
  6. Go to the Plugins page and click Activate for EasyPayPal.
  7. Go to the Options tab and then click on the EasyPayPal Configuration tab to setup your PayPal options.

Problems?

If you find any problems, please let me know by contacting support@voiceoftech.com.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I just put the [paybutton][/paybutton] in post and when user clicks ‘Buy Now’, instead of going to a login/register page it goes to PayPal and allows them to make a payment for the content on that page?
The user must login/register before clicking on a Pay Button. If the user was sent off to PayPal without logging into WordPress, we wouldn’t be able to identify them and couldn’t unlock the content for them.

If I use the same item name and number for a few different posts, when a user pays for that one post with that name and number will they be able to view all post with same item name and number?
No. Content is purchased by Post ID and Item Number. The Item Name is just a description for you and the user. If you have multiple [paybutton] tags in a post, you’ll want to use different item numbers, however, you could use the same item number in different posts.

New Drupal Book: Drupal for Dummies | drupal.org

new book, Drupal for Dummies, is now available. My intended audience is non-technical, so if you’ve got a friend who wants you to build a Drupal site for them, this might be worth mentioning to them. The companion Web site, http://drupalfordummies.com was created using only the information presented in the book.

About the Book

Like other books in the for Dummies series, Drupal for Dummies is for beginners. As my publisher puts it:

Everyone has to start somewhere. Before you can go about modifying the Drupal code base by writing PHP scripts and creating your own custom themes, you first have to download Drupal, install the LAMP stack; organize and create your site’s content; apply templates, get your first site up and running, and administer the site.

That’s precisely what Drupal For Dummies shows readers how to do, and much more Designed for non-programmers, Drupal For Dummies shows readers how to take advantage of everything in Drupal that is ready to use, including modules and third-party templates. For those readers who have been tapped to administer a Drupal site designed and programmed by a third-party developer, Drupal For Dummies provides the plain English instructions necessary to make changes across the site, manager user access and privileges, and many other high-frequency administrative tasks.

Topics Covered

  • Start here — find the free software and get simple solutions on things like setting up a database and installing Drupal on a Web host
  • Who’s in charge — manage an administrator account, establish rules, and control site users
  • What’s on your site — create, manage, and edit your content, and decide whether to allow comments
  • Where’s your region? — work with themes and regions and manage menus
  • Open forum — create a site with a blog and forum and set up appropriate security
  • Stay current — keep Drupal up to date, monitor activity on your site, and locate new modules and themes to use
  • Cover your bases — maintain your database, back it up, and know how to restore it
  • Move up — see how Drupal can build a robust site that interacts with other sites and how to set up an online store with Ubercart (more…)
