Hi, I read everything I could find and watched all the tutorial videos, but I am still lacking the understanding on how the modification of subscribers with custom capabilities works using paypal.
I have 3 different types of content. (music, software, videos)
i want to give users the ability to pay for their favorite by either one day pass, monthly or lifetime (all using subscription buttons) and then receive the custom capability of their choice. After having access, I want to show upgrade options on the welcome screen to add additional services 1 at a time or to go to VIP which includes all services.
i believe creating the original buttons with the capability for the membership options will not be an issue. however, i dont know how users will be affected when trying to add capabilities.
as far as i understand, I only need level one membership.
if a user purchases access to music on monthly basis and then wants to add software or videos individually later… how do i handle this? i read that making a modification button for custom capabilities adds that custom cap to their existing ones, however how does pricing work? do i put the monthly price as the total for the existing capability plus their 2nd one? (less desirable because i wont know if they have one service or two already, or were monthly/lifetime/day pass) or do i just put the amount that it adds to their existing subscription? (more desirable, because it adds the monthly fee to their base monthly fee), or are these not modifications and i simply have them create a second or third subscription?
If they originally purchased a day pass or lifetime pass, and then wanted to add second service monthly would it be modifying a original subscription?
also, if the amount in the modification button is the new total… how do i handle that? I wont know the users current monthly rate because i wont know if they only have one or two services. i was just going to use advanced conditionals on the welcome page that say… dont have music? add it now. and so on.
for the VIP level, do I make a mod button that removes all and then adds the 3 services? or do i just put the three capabilities in the custom capability field and it knows which ones to add? also my vip package is more than 20% higher.
first service A, B or C: $1.95/month
modify any subscription to VIP for $2.95/month. please help :-) hoping to set this up asap!
