I have a quick question, before I ask though I’ll give you a brief description of our “situation”:
We are a “sports statstics” company specialising in a specific sport, selling our “system” to sports clubs that range from juniors all the way to professional grades. Our system is a closely guarded secret and has been in development for a number of years, we are now at the stage where we want to sell our “system” to clubs and teams and we found S2Member to be a perfect fit for our needs.
We are in the development stages of an iPad app that will form the front end to our stats system and which we will offer to our paid subscribers for free. This app will be the front end to our stats system, stats will be recorded on an iPad and then saved to our site in a dedicated customer page for each subscriber, we will have 3 versions of the app for each “experience level” and at this stage everything is fine for us as S2Member allows us to set up up to 4 different subscriber levels and we are happy with everything so far.
However, and here is the reason for my post, there is a possibility that certain “customers” will use our stats system for multiple teams instead of just one (as it is designed) and therefore cutting us out of large revenue opportunities. So to get around that we are thinking of offering a single team subscription and a multi-team subscription for our products, pricing it accordingly to allow a discount, value, etc. Now this really isn’t S2Member’s concern but the real issue is that if we go down this path we increase our membership levels from 3 to 6 as it goes from looking like this:
Subscriber Single V1
Subscriber Multi V1
Can S2Member do this and give us the options we want? I have seen in the general options/Membership Levels that it says this:
“TIP: Unlimited Membership Levels are only possible with s2Member Pro. However, Custom Capabilities are possible in all versions of s2Member, including the free version. Custom Capabilities are a great way to extend s2Member in creative ways. If you’re an advanced site owner, a theme designer, or a web developer integrating s2Member for a client, please check your Dashboard, under: s2Member -> API Scripting -> Custom Capabilities. We also recommend the s2Member Codex.”
Will this give me what I want? Or alternatively, since I have only moderate coding experience, is there someone that we could pay to code it for us?
Sorry for my extremely long post, I hope it all makes sense.
