access to article after clicking paypal button

Post by ita4012 » Wed Jun 20, 2018 5:48 pm

Hi, I am using both Conditional Content and Smartsubscription.

With those extensions, I set some articles in my website so that only a special users category can access to it. They are supporters users who paid some money, when they registered.

But, people are lazy.... and often don't want to spend time to register in my website to become a supporter user.

So, I thought to give access to some of my articles also to any unregistered user, who simply has clicked a paypal button in the article preview, and has paid a few money to read only that article. Is there a way to reach this goal?

Thanks

I verified that paypal allows to create a payment button with a specific URL to which redirect users after payment. So, I could reach my purpose creating a special hidden url, with full article, viewable only by guest who did the payment. Have you got ideas to do that?

suggest looking at the "paid downloads" extensions.
