Having an entry fee to my site..? Empty Having an entry fee to my site..?

Post by Hayley on January 2nd 2009, 5:38 am

Hi all,

If I am posting this and it has already been asked please let me know where and delete this one as I have searched high and low and found nothing.

I am wondering if is ok to charge a small fee for members to register with my site, and if so, how do I do it?
I have over 450 members at my site, but of all those people, only a few donate, and I am paying alot of money to keep the site going. I would like to have a small fee of a few dollars when people join, then no one will need to donate anymore, and it will run smoothly. Also, can anyone foresee any problems with this?
Of course, If its in the Forumotion rules that I cant do this, then I wont.

metram That's completely beside the point.

Hayley As far as I know, it's not possible. What you can do though is allow members to join, but restrict them to only a few forums, until they donate, then you can allow them to have full access to all the forums.

You'll need to place all current members into a new group that has access to all forums. Change the permissions of your forums so members can only see some of them, but your new group can see all of them.

metram It doesn't matter what it costs, that wasn't asked. And if you know it's not possible, then why didn't you say it in your first post? No reply needed.

On One of my Forums my members do pay I make sure that I get the money with in a month from registration, or I disable the account.

To answer your question, no there is not a programmed option to collect money.

Oh thanks everyone! Metram, I have no idea what I would charge yet, I just wanted to see if it was ok to do it first.
I guess that on my site, members love to share pics of themselves, and that takes space, costing money. I would really only want like 5 dollars- I dont want to make money, just want to cover costs so that I dont have to keep putting in. After all, I am the one who has spent so many hours and weeks setting it up and keeping it running smoothly.

P.S I would love anyones opinion on this, even if you disagree.
