Selling access to joomla articles through virtumart

Good afternoon. Tell me the link to the plugin for selling access to joomla articles through virtumart.

Selling courses. Some of the materials should be open, and the other closed. After payment, the closed parts must be opened to the user.

A simple way if you want to manage it yourself is to create a "subscription" service for sale, ie "get access to premium content".

You will need to create a user group which users can view articles, ie "Premium users". when you create an article in Joomla, on the righthand sidebar there is a select box called "Access" set that to your user group.

When a person purchases from your Virtumart store, make sure they need to create a Joomla account. when you receive an order, go in and add the "Premium user" group to that user. or else you can create a Script on purchase checkout which will add this user to that group if you want to automate it.

if it is a subscription-based thing, you can set up a cron job to check purchase date against user group items and remove the group if the subscription has expired.
