Just trying to make sure I do this in the right way (also in a way that, you know, works…)
Previously spoke in the pre-sales here – has some background: http://www.s2member.com/forums/topic/converting-from-wishlist-pre-sales/?nc40#post-5815
Our website is here: http://www.dsmusic.com.au
Here’s the situation:
We sell books. When you buy a book (not right now being sold from our website but through bookstores and amazon etc.) you have access to online resources to support that book. One of those resources is a .pdf copy (soon to be .epub as well). There are also a series of online lessons and, files and links to support the lesson content in the book. All of these memberships (for the website portion) are free, and are effectively packaged with the physical book purchase.
So what we require is a way to:
The ways I think we can do these things are:
2. This is the trickier one – I’m tempted to just email them the damn file manually since it’s a far simpler process and doesn’t require any tricky coding for now, however it seems that I should be able to do this with Custom Capabilities, so:
3. Level 1 user gets access to the online resources section on the website. Easy. Once we add more resource sections dedicated to supporting more books, we segregate this access using Custom Capabilities.
The real trick seems to be getting CCaps to work for free users. I believe I can use the form generator to create a form that will give a user certain custom capabilities, however this seems to be automatic and not subject to approval. Can I create a form that will attach custom capabilities that will still require Level 1 membership?
I don’t want to go on too long so will leave this there – please let me know if you can help me get these setups right!
