I am developing a website with custom post types: discussions, photos, events and classifieds. It would be nice to be able to have an option in PAYMENTS on the SETTINGS page to be able to define which post types are charged for posting.
It's not uncommon for websites to have free posting which generates interest and content, and charged posting which generates income for the website. In my case adding discussions and photos would be free, while adding events and classifieds wouldn't.
I hope this is a feature you plan to add in the future. If not, would you be able to give me a suggestion, my PHP skills are not professional but developing.
Many thanks for the quick reply, I hope so too!!! In the mean time, is there a hack I could use to get this functionality with this version? At least point me in the right direction and I can try myself and if I have success, I can give the code back to the community.
In addition, thinking about it, it could be an opportunity to develop a paid add on that gives greater control over CHARGING FOR POSTING.
For example, an add on could allow a per form setting, which can allow or disallow this feature and set pricing per form. Also, this could allow for more diverse SUBSCRIPTION PACKAGES, mixing up content types (when available) and forms per PACKAGE.
Just some thoughts, have a great day,
